7 Farmhouse Christmas Decorating Ideas For Your Kitchen

Combining the farmhouse decor style with festive Christmas cheer can result in a homey and welcoming space. Create a beautiful look in your kitchen this holiday season by decorating with these two elements. Here are 7 farmhouse Christmas decorating ideas for your kitchen.


1. Dress Up Your Cabinets With Festive Christmas Wreaths

Make your cabinets look unique this Christmas season by decorating them with festive cheer!

Wreaths are the easiest way to quickly transform the face of your kitchen cabinets without overcrowding your space or overdoing the holiday decor.

Aim for holiday wreaths that include red berries, poinsettias, pine cones, or other Christmas themed accents such as ball ornaments.

You can attach the wreath to your cabinets by using removable hooks, or you can tie a ribbon to the wreaths and tape it to the top of your cabinet doors.

These Sets of 2 Cabinet Wreaths are the perfect addition to your farmhouse Christmas kitchen! Featuring a plaid pattern on the ribbon, they’ll match with any other festive decor.

2. Add Some Warm Lighting To Your Kitchen With Decorative Lanterns

Kitchens usually have bright lights in order to increase the functionality of your everyday cooking tasks.

While the bright lights are great for meal prepping, you can also bring in some warm lights to create a peaceful holiday scene in the evening.

The simplest way to add warm lighting to your kitchen for Christmas is through decorative lanterns! Find lanterns that are decked out in holiday cheer such as plaid ribbons, greenery, and Christmas colors.

Place lanterns around your kitchen on the counters to add a warm farmhouse Christmas feeling. You can use LED lanterns or you can even use ones with holiday scented candles. Mix in some other lighted decor to add to the warm glow!

3. Decorate Your Kitchen With A Mix Of Farmhouse & Christmas Symbols

When it comes to farmhouse Christmas decorating ideas, the easiest method is to combine the main symbols of both styles!

The farmhouse decor style typically features symbols such as red trucks, farm animals, barn stars, and windmills.

Christmas decor showcases the classic holiday symbols and characters like Santa, elves, trees, stockings, and snowmen.

Decorate with a healthy mix of farmhouse and Christmas accents in your kitchen to achieve a balanced look. For instance, you can lay down a red truck rug and use Christmas tree hand towel. Just make sure to stick with the same general color scheme.

The Vintage Country Kitchen Collection already sets you up with a great balance of farmhouse and Christmas! With the design of red trucks and Christmas trees, you can transform your kitchen this holiday season.

4. Bring The Joyous Spirit Into Your Kitchen With A Small Farmhouse Christmas Tree

Who says that Christmas trees are only for the living room? You can decorate for the holiday season by incorporating a small Christmas tree in your kitchen!

You’ll want to start by choosing a tree that is small enough for your space. You can place it in the corner of the room, or you can even decorate with a mini tree on top of your counter.

Next, dress up your tree in the farmhouse style. Include symbol ornaments such as farm animals, barn stars, windmills, and red trucks. You can also use ornaments made of rustic materials such as galvanized metal and weathered wood.

Lastly, add some finishing touches with a plaid tree topper or a plaid ribbon tied around the tree. This pattern blends in nicely with the farmhouse Christmas theme.

5. Use Decorative Trays To Add Function & Style To Your Farmhouse Christmas Kitchen

The best way to decorate your kitchen while keeping it neat and tidy is to use a combination of function and style!

Decorative trays are a great way to have this combination in your kitchen. While you’re not using them to serve food and drinks, you can display them on your kitchen counter.

Get the farmhouse Christmas look with a decorative tray that combines farmhouse materials with holiday symbols and sentiments.

For instance, you can find a rustic wooden tray that features a Santa or Christmas tree design. When not in use, display the tray on its own or fill it with pine cones and potpourri.
