Simple Celebrations: Ideas for Kitchen Decor For A Farmhouse Holiday

Decorating for the holidays can be a lot of fun, but you don’t want to end up with a kitschy, cluttered look. You will regret it long before the holiday season is over. It’s easy to add too much if you decorate in a country or farmhouse style. Focus on replacing your existing decor with minimalist and clutter-free items that bring you joy. Here are some tips to create a minimalist yet festive look:

Natural Elements

Natural elements can add to the festive and seasonal decor of your home without making it look cheap or overdone. These farmhouse-style decorations are also easy to use and maintain the farmhouse look. Include natural elements such as pine cones and greenery in your holiday decor. Simple arrangements can be created in vases or baskets. You can collect these items yourself if you live in a place where they are easily found outside. Add them to your decor. Pinecones and other greenery can be found in flower shops and home decor stores if you do not live in rural areas.

Hanging a wreath of natural materials over the fireplace, on the kitchen door, on the vent hood, or a wall is a great way to incorporate natural elements into your decor. Consider making your wreath by using raw materials from the area.

Subtle Lighting

Lighting can add a festive feel without cluttering up the room. Create a warm, cozy atmosphere with soft lighting. Be careful not to overdo the fairy lights or string lights. Place your lights where they can add ambiance and glow without appearing kitschy or excessive.

Candles can also be used to create a soft glow and festive scent. They are not always suitable for all situations, times, or places. Consider using flameless candles when you cannot use real candles. Use flameless candles to create ambiance on counters or shelves without risking a fire.

Neutral Color Palette

Sticking to neutral colors can help eliminate the clutter-like feeling that is sometimes associated with holiday decor. Add a few traditional holiday colors for a festive look without overwhelming your senses. Stick to complementary colors and shades. Choose a few shades rather than a rainbow. It will help you maintain a clean and cohesive look and make your holiday decorations appear well-planned.

Farmhouse Style Decor

Keep your holiday decor consistent with your farmhouse decor. Use farmhouse-style pieces that complement the current kitchen design rather than trying to create a new style. Use galvanized metals, wooden crates, or Mason jars, for example. Hang a rustic wood sign with a message for Christmas or a festive quotation. Add natural elements such as evergreen branches. The old-fashioned and simple cranberry and popcorn strings are festive.

Kitchen Utensils As Decor

Consider reusing items from your everyday life as decor. You can, for example, display Christmas-themed cookie cutters or kitchen utensils in a decorative dish or on the wall. Use decorative pot holders and hand towels, and attractively arrange holiday dishes instead of storing them in cabinets.

Minimalist table setting

Decorate and set your table with minimalist ideas. Set an elegant and simple holiday table using a neutral tablecloth and rustic placemats. Create a festive atmosphere with festive dinnerware, cloth napkins, and other holiday decor. If you’re not hosting a holiday dinner, an elegant and simple setting will make your table look lively and inviting.

Festive Centerpiece

A centerpiece can be used on a table, bar, or island. It will add holiday cheer to your home without cluttering it up. A wooden tray or a simple bowl filled with pinecones and greenery can be used to create a minimalist centerpiece. Miniature Christmas trees can also be used as accents or centerpieces. You can also use a wreath and decorate it with Christmas tree balls, pine cones, candles, or other appropriate items. This focal point can add interest to the room without overpowering it and will fit in with your other decor.

Personal touches

Personal touches can make your holiday decor festive, joyous, and sentimental. You can avoid clutter by using things that are meaningful to you and your loved ones. You can do this by displaying family photos in festive frames or creating a small gallery wall. You can also display personalized ornaments and decorations that have sentimental value on decorative shelves, cuphooks, or tabletop trees. This not only adds sentimental value to your decor but also protects your ornaments from damage compared to placing them on a family tree.


The key is to find the right balance between being festive and not having too much clutter. Keep the design simple and cohesive by using a few complementary colors and sticking to one or two themes. Focus on quality rather than quantity, and incorporate elements that will enhance the warmth of your farmhouse-style kitchen.
