Staying true to our 1800’s farmhouse, this year’s Christmas home tour, I kept the style cozy & warm with lots of greenery mixed in & I hope you will enjoy all the Christmas decorating ideas I am sharing today.
I am opening up our Farmhouse for you guys to see how we decorated it for Christmas this year!
This year’s Christmas home tour is a bit simpler, more handmade & hopefully more Christ focused than in year’s past.

Christmas Home Tour – Farmhouse Front Porch
For anyone new to Lehman lane…my husband, Jason & I, along with our 4 kids & dog, Moose live in a very old & very quirky farmhouse in the suburbs of Philadelphia. (you can read more about us here)
I have always lived within 11 miles (I googled it) of this very spot which was long ago a turkey farm.
I kept our farmhouse Christmas front porch decorated simply with an evergreen wreath on our front door & hanging on our pallet sign.
We have been blessed to call this our home & for the last 5 years have been slowly & sometimes not so slowly renovating, landscaping & decorating our farmhouse.
It has already been the heart of so many Christmas dinners, Christmas craft nights & the most exuberant caroling sessions you ever could hear, ha!
If you want to see all the transformations our home has had over the years, you can find them on our home page here.
But for now, come on inside…
Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour – Foyer
Before I started my decorating this year, the first thing I did was take a large box of Christmas donations to our local thrift store.
Over the years some of my Christmas decor held little or no meaning to me & I decided that if it wasn’t something I loved or had memories attached to it than it was time to let it go….
Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour – Family Room Christmas Tree & Stockings
In place of missing Christmas decor went lots of evergreens found right in our backyard to decorate my farmhouse Christmas home tour.
However, we did break down & get a faux tree this year on sale at Lowes.
With our new wood stove there was no way a live tree would have survived all the watering it would have needed in our family room.
Unfortunately, the kids had the same reaction to our tree that they did to last year’s attempt at a faux tree (you can read about that here).
But… for Jason with his bad back & me & my desire to start decorating for Christmas in June, it works!!!
And we can always get more Christmas trees live or otherwise in the future.
Our family room has been everyone’s favorite spot to hang out now with our new wood stove! (you can read about our stove here)
Yay for a warm room in our farmhouse for Christmas!
Watching movies & sports together along with board games on a cold winter night is just the best.
Our farmhouse Christmas home tour fireplace mantel is kept simple with our cedar houses that Jason made to resemble all the houses we lived in (diy found here), greenery & of course our stockings!

Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour – Living Room Mantel Decor with Candles & Greenery
In our living room, I kept our fireplace mantel simple for our farmhouse Christmas home tour with live greenery & battery powered candles.
This is definitely the prettiest & simplest mantel I have ever done & I absolutely love it!
Nothing could be simpler than candles & evergreens!
I recently added a free printable to our fireplace mantel. (you can find out more about that here)
I hope to make a few ornaments to hang from our mantel in the future. But for now, I am enjoying the simplicity of it.
Even Moose is pretty happy with all the Christmas decorations in here, ha!
We just finished our DIY pallet nativity & I know it will be a staple for many Christmas home tour to come!
The kids are always excited to get out our nativity for our farmhouse Christmas home tour.
Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour – Kitchen & Dining Room
If you missed our farmhouse Christmas home tour of the kitchen & dining room here is a few of my favorite pics from the tour.

It won’t be long before our dining table is set for our family’s Christmas Eve dinner!
Christmas Dining Room Tablescape
I loved last year’s table so much I have a feeling I will do something very similar this year…. I just have to borrow all those candles from our living room mantel… (you can see the whole post here)
I hope that you were inspired by my Famhouse Christmas tour & have lots of ideas of how to decorate your home with farmhouse style for Christmas.
I want to wish you & your family a wonderful of Christmas.
It is my hope that you will discover not only the truth of the baby born in Bethlehem so many years ago but also the hope & knowledge that He will come to earth again!
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”. Isaiah 9:6

As always…looks beautiful!
Just beautiful Tara! I want to sit in your house and have a cup of tea. You can redecorate my house anytime. Josh will be envious of your wood stove! I love that same hymn and this year it has been extra special, as all of our children enjoy it too. It is so sweet to hear a small two year old sing “weejoyce!”. Thanks for the link to the printable – such a good idea! Merry Christmas !
Thank you so much Laurel! You are welcome to stop by for a cup of tea anytime 🙂 It was so fun seeing Josh for the 4th of July fireworks. Hopefully I will get to bump into you one of these days! And SO sweet that your kiddos love singing those Christmas hymns. Have a wonderful Christmas!!!
And, Moose looks so happy and content!
Yes he definitely loves it here! Thanks for stopping by Susan!
