Just because Christmas is over doesn't mean winter is over! In fact, December 21 marks the first day of winter on our northern side of the hemisphere. Now, our beautiful winter around the US lasts until March 20, so it's time to bring our winter decorating ideas to keep the spirit of Jack Frost alive!
At Rustic Red Door, we had a very crazy last few months so this blogpost is coming out a little later than expected. Sometimes things happen that are outside of our control, but that's okay!
Now, we're here to bring you winter decor inspiration that shouldn't require you to put in much effort. It's all a matter of swapping some stuff out instead of revamping all of your Christmas decorations. Keep reading to learn how to transition from Christmas to winter decor,easily!

Winter Table Ideas
During the holidays, we added a lot more decor to reflect the spirit of the season in our Christmas decor! Our wonderful interior designer decided to dress our Parker Farmhouse Dining Table. Below, you can see our Christmas theme to the left, and winter to the right (or first to second image on mobile).
To transition into the winter months, we simplified the table setting. Instead of all the ornaments on the table, like the large bells, we removed those. We kept the trees because Christmas greenery isn't only for the holidays.
We simplified our table decor to focus on winter whites and fresh greenery. It makes us think of snow falling on Noble Firs outside!
For the winter season table setting, we kept the little wreaths with pinecones and swapped the red napkins for a more neutral color palette with a winter white and muted blue napkin.
Another option you can do is swap out the wreath for just the red napkin with a wood napkin wrap. An easy change that looks beautifully rustic. This keeps your dining room feeling cozy and warm - so necessary for the coldest season!
Here's a closer look at our centerpiece transition from Christmas to winter decor. We took out the runner, but you can always choose a winter-themed runner across the table to create a cozy winter home! We took out the ringing bells but kept the little trees for a nice winter green.
For our hand hewn mantel shelf, we kept most of the decor the same. We added a snowflake and wreath ornament to our window and exchanged the Christmas decor for silver tree ornaments. We also switched the greenery in the vase with white birch twigs. These simple transitions add cozy winter vibes to the walls of your home!
Winter-Inspired Buffet and Shelf
To add winter touches to our Pierce Barnwood Buffet and 3 picture opening frame shelf, we swapped out some of the decor items that scream Christmas for decor in more neutral colors. We replaced the large reindeer on the shelf with a white small tree collection. On the buffet, we downsized the Christmas tree for a smaller potted tree, without the Christmas lights.
We also added pine cones to a bowl along with a smaller reindeer figurine to continue highlighting the winter season without looking too Christmas-y. These simple changes make the shift from Christmas to winter home decor simple and beautiful.
We hope these tips give you some good ideas for how to transition from holiday decor to winter decor without putting in too much effort. By reusing many of the same decor pieces, the transition from a holiday feel to a cozy winter home can be both budget-friendly and fun!
