Welcome back for another holiday room tour! Today I’d love to have you join us in the dining room. Can I tell you a secret? I don’t usually make a big Christmas meal. Instead, I like to make a huge batch of pancakes and bacon or sausage. I’m definitely a breakfast for lunch or dinner kind of gal. In fact, we sit down in the dining room and the whole family enjoys a big brunch on Christmas day. Maybe one year I’ll surprise the family with a ham. Or maybe not.
Apparently I’m old enough to witness a trend go out of style and come back again. I’m thrilled to be able to dust off my blue and white Spode plates and use them on my holiday tablescape this year. Do you have a collection of blue and white plates? Do you use them all the time, only for special occasions or never?
It was great to bring out the deer from last year’s tablescape. They really add the woodland feel to our table.
I purchased a mixed green garland from Kroger and pulled it apart to decorate the table and more! Gotta love getting fresh greens from the grocery store.
Speaking of table, did you notice that my table is different from last year? I finally made this beautiful farmhouse table from reclaimed timbers and Osbourne wood table legs. You can easily make your own table following this tutorial.
And yes, the chandelier is new too! Read how to install a new chandelier.
The vintage sheet music is still taped to the back of the dining room hutch. It adds such a warm feel to the previously dark spot in the room. I haven’t wanted to take it down.
Are you ready to use blue, white and gold in your decorating now?
What colors did you use this year in your dining room?
I hope you enjoyed the tour of our dining room today. If you missed it, you can tour our living room too. I’ll be sharing the rest of my holiday decorated rooms this week and next.
