A Christmas Barn

Last month my husband and I had the privilege of going on a Christmas Walk in our small town.  One of the "Homes" on the Christmas Walk was a renovated barn.  It was so  beautiful and well done,  I really wanted to share it with my readers.  The barn is located right next to a local park and has beautiful views of a small lake.  It is rented out for weddings and other gatherings.

My first thoughts when entering the barn was how light and bright it was.  Most barns tend to be on the dark side, but because of the white ceilings, the un-stained wood siding, and all the added windows, it was not a typical dark barn.

Elegance and rustic beautifully blend together in this barn.   Galvanized steel on the wall, and a wagon wheel light fixture are gentle reminders of the original use of this beautiful barn.

All the tables were decorated for Christmas.  Each table setting is different.  I took pictures of a few of my favorites to share with you.  Hopefully they'll give you some last minute table setting ideas for your own Christmas table.

I loved so many of the table settings, it was hard for me to choose a favorite, but this one is certainly on the top of my list.  I love the folded tree napkin, isn't that amazing?  And the vintage truck is perfect for this location, not to mention how much they are trending right now in interior design.  The flannel table runner completes the entire ensemble.

The deer statue and red/black plaid flannel of this table setting is also perfect for this country barn setting.  I love the candles on top of the cranberries and pine boughs too.

What a cute, simple, easy idea to tie the napkins with a pretty plaid bow that matches the runner too!

Silver and white is always one of my favorite Christmas color combos because I love the elegance.  The addition of this galvanized steel house next to a shiny silver candle stand is a perfect blend of rustic and glam for this country barn.

How cute is this one?  Love the vintage truck ornament placed amongst the pine cones.

I can't do complicated napkin folding, so I'm always looking for easy, yet charming napkin ideas.  I love this one, because it's so simple, yet so pretty and appropriate.  The ornament would make a nice parting gift for the guest too!

I love how they added a more glamorous, antique chandelier in this part of the barn.

These displays were located by the back door.  I always love it when vintage sleighs are decorated for Christmas, don't you?

The milk can is the perfect vase for a floral arrangement in a barn!

This is the staircase leading to the balcony.  Isn't the "railing" interesting?

 This beautiful grapevine wreath hung on the back wall.  I love the little lights woven through the wreath.  I'm sure these lights have been around awhile, but this is the first year I've noticed them popping up in Christmas decor everywhere.  I have no idea how long they last, or how much they cost, but they are a great idea for lighting something where you can't add a cord and connect to a outlet.  I noticed a lot of the table settings had these little lights.  I will have to look for them next year.  They are so cute!

Whenever I go to a nice restaurant I love to check out the bathrooms, and this barn was no exception. I couldn't wait to check out the bathrooms, and they did not disappoint!  I was blown away by their creativity!  They used a lot of barn elements in their design.  This is one of the "sinks" in one of the bathrooms.

And here is the sink in other bathroom.  Isn't it fun?  It's rustic, yet, so glamorous at the same time. I love those mirrors too!

The "Hello Gorgeous" sign in front of the mirror was the perfect added touch!  We all need to hear that message!

This is one of the doors to a bathroom stall inside the bathroom.

Outside the balcony door is another eating area overlooking the park lake.

View of the lower level of the barn as seen from the balcony.

The floor was stained concrete.  It was stained a marbled, light grey;  perfect for heavy foot traffic, and the color keeps the room light and airy.

 I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Walk through this beautiful barn decorated for Christmas.  I hope it gave you some ideas to use in your home for the holidays,  I sure got a lot of great ideas!   If you're interested in learning more about "The Barn at Mirror Lake" see their website HERE!

Have A Great Day!  Amy

  8. The barn is beautifully decorated! I love all the little Christmas details. By the way, my aunt always folds the napkins in Christmas tree shape, what a coincidence!

    1. You’re the second person to tell me that! And the funny part for me is that I’ve never seen napkins folded like that before!

  9. Such a charming barn. Love the decor too, so festive, warm, and rustic.
