Country Christmas Decorating Ideas for a Breakfast Room
Who can believe that Christmas is just a couple of days away? I couldn’t let the holiday come and go without sharing my breakfast room decorated for Christmas. This year, I went with a few blue and white Christmas touches. Actually, I only added a little bit of greenery here and there. Then, I styled a tiered tray to decorate this space, too! Let me show you how to achieve my country Christmas look!
Our breakfast room is located right off the back entryway. Right inside, I have placed a bench that is always filled with a few of my favorite blue and white pillows and throw blankets. Since I kept a blue and white Christmas theme in here, I did not change out any seasonal pillows. I did add this striped turkish throw that you can read more about, here. Meanwhile, a cotton wreath is hung on my salvaged barn vent. A chippy painted shelf and sign always hang here too.
Near the kitchen, I have a plate rack shelf hung with signs, platters and greenery. I added a holiday tea towel from Returning Grace. Handmade items in my home like the tea towel or crocheted garland from female owned small shops add charm. I have a collection of white platters displayed on the wall and throughout the space. Under the platters, hangs a wall hook that I hung a wreath, ornament, and a Turkish kitchen towel. Again, I love the blue and white striped towels. If you love blue and white Christmas decor, check out last year’s dining room decorated for Christmas.
I found these cedar, pine and berry wreaths on sale at Michaels last week. Therefore, I grabbed as many as I could. They reminded me of the cedar trees in one section of my parents ranch that we referred to as ‘Cedar Hill.’ Years ago, my siblings and I would play hide and seek on horseback through this heavily wooded area. I was immediately reminded of this time when I saw the cedar stems.
Next, I added the pinecones and cotton stems to the wreaths hung on the back of the chairs with floral wire. Then, on the door, I hung the wreath among some round reeds repurposed from a round basket. Both are tied with my favorite blue and white gingham ribbon. I like to repurpose items when I can. For example, old cookie cutters are tied with jute and hung on the tree as ornaments.
On my blue hutch, I placed seasonal greenery into my collection of white pitchers. I love the stems with blue berries and pinecones. They give it a country Christmas feel! Similarly, two grapevine wreaths add a rustic feel to the space. I like to add little wreaths of greenery where I can…a set of wall hooks, on a doorway, the backs of chairs.
I love styling trays for holidays and seasons. For this country Christmas styled tray, I stuck with a fairly neutral color scheme. I used some vintage and new copper finds mixed with a few holiday decorations. Mini signs, wooden beads and natural elements like faux greenery always work great in trays. For Christmas trays, I often add a few of my favorite ornaments, pinecones and vintage postcards. If you have a large tray to fill, items like coffee mugs will do the trick. Try to use a variety of textures and kinds of decor in your trays to keep it interesting!
Thank you for stopping by the Cuter Tudor. I love the holidays! However, with the busyness of the season, I also crave simplicity. I wish that you find balance in all the things. Most importantly, I hope y’all have a wonderful holiday season!
