In this article: Find 20 best Christmas Farmhouse table decor items inspired by Joanna Gaines.
Did you hear that Chip and Joanna Gaines are returning to tv? They are! I admit my heart skipped beat and I squealed a little when I read that fact. Joanna’s style speaks “home” to me ~ and I’m looking forward to watching more of her creativity at work.
One of the problems I’ve encountered here in Canada is that farmhouse style decor is a challenge to find. No Hobby Lobbys are around the corner and vintage and antique finds are fewer and farther between.
Other ladies have voiced their frustration in this matter, too, so I’ve done some sleuthing put together this handy dandy list of items ~ that can be delivered right to your Canadian door!

Joanna uses a lot of greenery and natural elements in her decorating style. I’m sure much is the real deal, but if you’re like me, you might want to opt for the less messy ~ yet lifelike looking ~ faux options.
Although different from the traditional Christmas greenery, I’ve noticed some beautiful arrangements with faux eucalyptus. It might even look nice to use it along with Christmas boughs.

One of the easiest centerpieces of all is to stagger candle holders down the center of the table with greenery interspersed. Usually, they are of varying heights, and there are multipes of them. Joanna used glittery silver ones, but here are some other farmhouse rustic options:
Plaid pattern goes so well with farmhouse style. I remember my farmer dad and grandpa always seemed to have some great plaid flannel shirts that they wore all winter long! These classic plaid napkins would be perfect for a Christmas table setting.
If your table isn’t as beautiful as one of Joanna’s, you might want to cover it up with a simple tablecloth. It will hide the imperfections of your table and provide a nice backdrop to the whole tablescape.
My favorite tablecloth choice would be a simple linen one in white or natural. (Be sure to measure and get the correct size for your table.)
I like to keep a set of 4 placemats and a runner on my table at all times. It gives a nod to farmhouse style, and gives the impression that another meal will be on its way. (ha ha!:) You can see my favorite neutral farmhouse tablescape here.
Although “farmhouse striped” placemats weren’t in abundance on the site I was looking at, I did uncover these:
It’s hard to tell if this table runner would match the placemats listed above, but it looks like a nice neutral option. I think it would look really nice with the woven rattan plate chargers…

I enjoyed discovering an article on a Winter Holiday Party hosted by Joanna. Rather than plates, she opted to serve the dinner on wooden cutting boards!
I don’t think I’d be brave enough to do that (and I don’t have all those cutting boards!), but here are some ideas to get a similar look.
- Woven Wicker Charger Plates can add an element of texture and give a casual feel to a table setting. I have a set similar to these, and I reach for them often.
- White linen napkins pair nicely with the warm tones of woven charger plates, and are versitile for every season of the year. They can be layered between the dinner and salad plate, folded like a Christmas tree, folded like a pocket for silverware, or put in a napkin ring.
Although there are many beautiful dishes to choose from, my favorite for the farmhouse look is simple white dishes.
Adding a colorful napkin or place card holder (like this simple DIY version) can add interest and holiday style to plain white plates. Another idea is to layer on top a decorative salad plate like this:
Or, this solid red plate would look lovely, too.
Place Card Holders and Decor
Adding some farmhouse touches through place card holders is a fun way to add another element of festiveness to a Christmas table. Here are a few ideas.
In looking over the inspiration pictures for this post, I noticed that they all had something in common ~ black dining room chairs. I thought I’d peruse and see if I could find some ~ and I did! Here’s a wonderful farmhousey option:
I always like to have a little stash of farmhouse style accessories on hand. Jute twine and baker’s twine are 2 staples that I reach for many times. They can be used to tie on place card tags to napkin rings, add a ribbon around a candle stick ~ and are reached for often when wrapping gifts, too!
I hope that is helpful for those of you who are on the search for farmhouse christmas table decor in Canada.
And for you Americans, here are some fun recommendations for you!
