Right now snow is mounded up knee deep against the French doors and it’s so bitter cold the snow sparkles with tiny diamond crystals. It was the perfect day to decorate for Christmas.

I really didn’t want to make a big fuss and take hours and hours to get the job done, so I decided to make things as easy and natural as possible.

That made it super easy to decorate around I didn’t have to put anything away from the existing décor look, except a few throw pillow and two blankets.

So when I got home for Christmas décor shopping looking I went to the basement and started getting down the totes that had just what I wanted to use in them.

It makes it so fast and easy to find what you’re looking for the following year and you’ll enjoy the decorating process.

I was a lazy Christmas decorator this year. I kept most of the same things on the dining room table; you can see that here, from Thanksgiving. I did tweak it and add a few Christmas natural elements with the pinecones from our trees. I’ve added them all over the house in different ways, and I’ll be back in later posts to show you how else I’ve used them. By the way, pinecones keep so if you have the storage space you can keep them from year to year.

Deer antlers from my hubby and boys deer they’ve shot over the years. I know not everyone is a hunter but around here we hunt for food not for sport and I enjoy having the antlers to decorate with, they give the cabin that lodge feel this time of the year.

Wood slices that I’d cut a few years back to make ornaments with, and these were the leftovers I’ve had in the basement. Hubby took a tree down to make my wooden deer, you can see that here, and I used the leftover pieces to cut into wood slices. They come in handy for so many things. You’ll find them mixed into my décor all times of the year.

I used what I had: galvanized chargers, scalloped edged off white dinner plates, and my favorite pine tree salad plates from the Magnolia Home line.

I use the same ones over and over again, my black and white buffalo checked napkins. I have a thing for black and white and a thing for anything buffalo check so why not use what I love.

Another thing to use is white bar towels, they’re cheap and you can bleach them if they become stained or most Dollar Stores have thin kitchen towels that come in fun colors and patterns that work perfectly as napkins.

Yep I’m still using the same one from Thanksgiving but a drop cloth seems to be work as tablecloth for any occasion too. It’s linen look and oatmeal color looks so nice and crisp. I’ve even been known to use a blanket scarf or a quilt as a tablecloth.

Enjoy the process of decorating and quit trying to keep up with the Jones. I know you’ll all see beautifully decorated Christmas homes from other bloggers right now, but mine is simple.

  1. Stunning! This year my way to simplify has been to use larger ornaments on the tree. Already had them but had never used before. Only thing I bought was some 6” snowflakes from the dollar store. It’s been the easiest tree I’ve decorated and will be the easiest to undecorate. And I love it!

    1. Barb, What a brilliant idea. Don’t you just love it when you think of a simpler way to do your decorating? Less stress for sure.

  2. Everything looks so beautiful, inviting, and sooooo cozy!!! Bravo to you for not spending any money on new this year! I had that as a goal, but succumbed to a few things! Christmas sparkle gets me every time!!!

    1. Doreen, I certainly thought about letting a few things jump into my card but I held them off somehow. LOL

    1. Kristi, thank you so much I’m loving this easy decorating style.

  4. I need to read your organizing tips. I still don’t know where three wreaths went to and where several pieces of frosted garland are. LOL. Your table looks so pretty … I love the Christmas tree plates!!

    1. Jennifer oh no, I bet they will turn up eventually. I’m planning on downsizing some of my stuff after Christmas this year. If I haven’t used it in years it’s time for it to go.

  5. your beautiful , yet simple table just speaks to me. I love the calm and peacefulness of it. I also love that you were able to assemble it using what you already have. That get bonus points!

  7. What a beautiful tablescape, Dawn! I’m a sucker for those little tin houses. Every detail is warm and inviting and those tree plates are perfection!

  8. I’m in love with your rustic Christmas decor!

    1. Thank you Shellie it’s such a simple look to create. I love that it’s a no stress style.

  9. Did you make the little deers on the table? They are so cute. I am going to try to make them and the big one your hubby made.

    1. Jonita, the big one is made from a tree hubby cut down and the small ones are actually metal and I picked them up years ago at Hobby Lobby.

      1. Thank you, they are so cute. I thought you might of made them. Love your blog.
