sharing our simple + cozy farmhouse Christmas table
For us, the holiday season this year has truly been about finding more enjoyment through simplicity and this cozy tablescape certainly embodies that.
Though I enjoy the beautifully styled decor I see shared on Instagram and I’m still pinning all the elaborate ideas on Pinterest, I’ve happily embraced the philosophy of less is more this year for our own home.
The Christmas season is my very favourite time of year, but through the last few years I’ve noticed myself getting caught up in and even overwhelmed by all the things I felt I had to do to make the most of our holiday season. As my expectations grew, I found the joy of the season fading. So this year, instead of elaborate perfection, I’m striving for more simple + attainable, leaving us with more room to enjoy the simple things.
And, of course more room for time with family and friends!
And I’ll tell you, after spending the last year renovating our entire main floor – enduring the slow cooker and microwave meals when we found ourselves without a kitchen, the many picnics around the coffee table when our dining space was torn apart, the plywood floors, missing ceilings, and just the general chaos that came with it all, I can’t tell you how much we’ve been looking forward to finally having the chance to reap the rewards of all that hard work! Afterall, the whole point of it all was to create a warm + welcoming home, with cozy spaces that we can share with our family and friends!
So, though simple, this year’s farmhouse Christmas tablescape is a true reflection of what matters most this time of year – making happy memories with our friends and family.
I cannot wait to see our family gathered around this cozy table for our Christmas Eve dinner this year!
