Simple Farmhouse Christmas Centerpiece

Can you guys believe Christmas is just 10 days away?! TEN DAYS. I don’t even know how that happened, but it’s almost here. And let me tell you, the Christmas buzz is running on high around here. My two sweet kiddos are completely beside themselves with excitement–especially my five year old. He literally has 382 questions a day about Christmas. And Santa. And the elves. And reindeer. He wants to know about all of it. Of course we’re making time to talk about the real meaning of Christmas too, but you know–he’s five, so it’s alllllll about the presents. Anyway, let me get on with today’s post because I’m sharing a simple farmhouse Christmas centerpiece in our breakfast nook. I put this together using some of my favorite vintage jars and I’m excited to show you how it turned out. I think this look would be perfect for any holiday gathering!

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned it here before, but I have a thing for old jars. Some might even call it an obsession. I’ve collected them for a while now and I just love how simple and beautiful they are–plus you can use them for so many different things. When I was trying to find something to put my mini Christmas trees in for this look I remembered these old jars. They’re a little unexpected, but I think they work perfectly! And I love putting them to good use.

I actually scored this greenery on clearance at Michael’s just a few days ago. Did you know they’ve already got all their Christmas decor marked way down? I was shocked to see most of their holiday decor 60% off. Hurry and go stock up for next year!

Simple Farmhouse Christmas Centerpiece.

Up until a few days ago I actually hadn’t decorated our kitchen or breakfast nook at all for Christmas. You know my philosophy this year has been all about keeping things easy and simple, but I decided a little bit of decor on the table wouldn’t hurt. Besides, we have only 10 days left so I might as well enjoy it while I can. Because come December 26th I’ll be taking it all down. Yeah, I’m THAT person. Once Christmas is over I am ready to start cleaning house. And I’m actually excited to do it. But I’ve also had Christmas decor up since mid-November, so that probably plays into my feelings about all of it. When do you start taking Christmas decor down? Are you an after Christmas person or do you wait until after New Year’s? Let me know! And I’d love to hear what you think of my vintage jars and this little centerpiece–I always love chatting with you! xoxo

    I keep all my decorations up for a few weeks after Christmas so we can enjoy. Plus I find it sad to undecorate.

      Hi Linda! I agree, it is a little sad to see all the Christmas decor come down, especially when it’s so much work to put it all up. My husband enjoys keeping the tree up a bit longer, so maybe I’ll hold out till New Year’s Day this year. Thanks for stopping by!

    Love the vintage jars and mini trees!!! After seeing one of your previous posts with the mini trees I had to get some. Michael’s had them 50 % off then and gorgeous a great deal on more at At Home. Just love them! As always thank you for your simple decor ideas!

      Oh I’m so glad you were able to find those little trees Donalee! They’re so handy, I have a ton of them scattered all over the house. Have a great Thursday!

    I do the exact same as you! The day after Christmas is over I take it all down. It also makes more room in the living room for the kiddos to spread out there new toys! I love your blog!

      Exactly Molly! Just another benefit to taking it all down early. Thank you so much for stopping by today! 🙂

    Sarah, that is absolutely beautiful. I love vintage jars too and always find a great use for them in décor. Thanks for the tip on Michaels. So happy they have their huge %’s off already. Happy Thursday.

    Love your jars and mini trees! 🙂 I think this centerpiece would also be great placed on a tray so it could be easily removed during meal time if need be!

      Thanks Erin! I totally agree, this would also work great on a tray or wooden crate!

    I am a glass jar collector too. I love to use them to store anything. I have 3 on my kitchen counter with fancy cupboard knobs on the lids. I simply love them. Love your decor, but like you I started decorating early because right after Christmas I can’t stand the clutter. God bless you and have a wonderful holiday!

      That’s such a great idea Alice! I need to put some knobs on top of mine sometime. Thank you so much for stopping by and Merry Christmas!

    Beautiful! So simple, yet it makes such a statement. Love it! I love Christmas and am always a little sad to take down my decor. I’m a “let’s keep it up until after (or way after) the new year type of person! ????

      Thank you Mikaela! I’m always a little sad to take down our decor too, the Christmas season always seems to go by so fast!

      What a great find Chelsea! That reminds me I need to drop by Goodwill, you never know what treasures you’ll find there.

    I’m a bit late…..not reading this until a few days before Christmas, but just had to tell you I love your table decor….super cute! I love your style! I am one of those people who love to put everything away right after Christmas and get the house back to normal, but then I’m a little sad because it looks kind of bare ????

      Aw thanks Mary! I’m right there with you on putting everything away right after Christmas. And I’ll be sharing some tips soon on how to easily transition from Christmas to winter decor!
