Hello friends! In less than a week Christmas will be here. Are you ready? As for me, I’m getting closer since I finished decorating the dining room. Today I’m sharing my red barn Christmas tablescape.
I’ve always had a thing for red barns, mainly because we had a red barn at the farmhouse where I grew up. I have lots of memories surrounding that old red barn so you can understand why I’m all nostalgic.
I really wasn’t planning on centering my Christmas tablescape around red barns but one day my blogging friend Pam from From My Front Porch to Yours posted some Christmas plates on Facebook.
The plates had a red barn on them and I instantly fell in love! The accent plates are part of the Southern Living line sold exclusively at Dillards and before I knew it, I was in Dillards purchasing 8 of them!
And they led to getting a new, skinny flocked tree to put them on!
I couldn’t believe my good luck one day when I was scrolling on the online site Zulily when I spied these farmhouse Christmas ornaments with farm animals and cast iron skillets that had photos of red barns inside the skillets!
At this point, I knew I was getting quite obsessed with red barns. Have you even gotten that way?
So one day I sketched out the red barn from the farm where I grew up and had Leo cut it out to create a wall hanging. I know it’s quite amateurish but working on it brought back many happy memories of my childhood.
And before I knew it, I had 2 red barn pillows featuring the art work by Lucy from Craftberry Bush.
Although I used some faux greenery in the centerpiece, I laid some fresh Leyland cypress cuttings on the table and other areas of the dining room. There’s nothing like fresh greenery on a Christmas table!
And yes, that’s cotton on my little trees!
I’m so glad that I had the tablescape all done this weekend. My niece and her family visited us on Saturday. She got a big kick out of this tablescape because she grew up in the same farmhouse that I did with the red barn!
Wishing you all the magic that this Christmas season has to offer!
