 German Christmas decorations with French Country Farmhouse Style!


First, let’s take a look at my Santa nutcrackers and smokers.  These are all made in Germany.

My favorite nutcracker remains my first nutcracker which is the one with the deer on the left.

Farmhouse Christmas decorating inspiration

Oh, what’s that? My *favorite* Christmas tree… the Steiff animal tree!  New this year is the flocked tree… I love the way the animals look on the flocked tree!

In the same room is the woodland style tree.  I love how we decorated it this year.  I moved the cardinal for the tree topper on this tree and love him here!

Woodland Christmas Tree

Next to the woodland tree is the woodland Santa.  He is sitting on antique French table with some French mirrors.  I huge the boxwood wreath on the mirror and like it there this year.
