A vintage inspired sign along with rustic accessories warm up a bar area for the holidays. Things like antlers to hold an ice bucket or an old branch planter to hold wine tend to create a comfortable space to entertain guests.

A vintage brass horn is perfect for hanging a small boxwood wreath from. It’s a simple look that screams country Christmas. Plus, the nutcracker displayed in the rustic cloche adds even more warm nostalgia.

Christmas decor including birch logs and galvanized bucket

Birch logs are a favorite rustic element to decorate with. For Christmas decorating, wrapping a bundle of birch logs with twine and red berries is a perfect warm accessory. Galvanized buckets are also popular in rustic Christmas decorating. They can be filled with greenery, logs, or other Christmas decor.
