Christmas in July
I've been all over the board with decor themes in past few years at our Almost Farmhouse.
Denim, Snowflake, Minimalistic, Buffalo Check - and even decorating ladders instead of trees! Here are a few of my favorites:
But when I had a chance to decorate a turn of the century farmhouse last year for a friend, I was inspired by the natural decorations we used.
Dried hydrangeas, nandina and magnolia leaves, feathers, acorns, orange slices, cranberries and cinnamon - I fell in love with it all!

It had me searching for way to incorporate those natural elements in my home this Christmas. So here are my Christmas Goals for 2018.
Neutral, Natural and Rustic. And it all starts with this tree:
King of Christmas - 7.5 ft unlit flocked tree
I have dreamed of having a flocked tree for the past 2 years watching all my friends on Instagram and fellow bloggers with their flocked trees decorated to perfection! Those fluffy, snowy tips are so gorgeous! And once it's lit - it's a show stopper.
And I love the simplicity of the earthy colors. I'm dreaming of green ribbon, pine cones, brown paper packages, raw wood elements.
