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!
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
