A Rustic Woodland Christmas

Remember the inspiration post that I shared with the nature inspired Christmas trees?  I took that inspiration and decorated the sunroom!  Since this room overlooks a wooded area, I wanted the décor to flow with that theme.  To see the inspiration post, click here.

Both trees were installed in galvanized containers, one being a vintage olive bucket and the other an old wash tub.

I’m glad I kept all the red wooden beads that I purchased many years ago.  They look perfect with the woodland theme that I was going for.

I purchased the terrier plates at Dirt Cheap last month for $1.50 each!  The vintage ruby red glasses were used in this Halloween tablescape which you can see here.  The green stemmed glasses were used in this Christmas tablescape.  Click here to see that one.

My mom gave me the vintage Tom & Jerry egg nog set a couple of years ago.  The vintage print is actually a reproduction that I purchased from Zazzle.

In keeping with the plaid accents, I set out the vintage thermoses and radio.

I left the window frame over the mantel that I used for Halloween.  You can see that mantel here.

I loved the owls on the mantel for Thanksgiving and was so happy to find this large one at Hobby Lobby this year!  To see the Thanksgiving mantel, click here.

To balance it out, I used this birdhouse that was on the front porch.  The red burlap ribbon bow ties it all together.  To see the front porch, click here.
