Happiest Friday! Come in, come in! Let’s peek at Christmas in the dining room
First of all…the dining room is not one of my finished rooms. I still need curtain panels and chair covers, which are on the 2013 to-do list.
With that said, let’s talk Christmas! I wanted to use my pastel decorations in the dining room so I knew it would have a different feel than the den. Instead of focusing on my theme of Snowy-Woodland Christmas, I decided to go with an Icy Christmas in this room. When I think of the few ice storms I’ve seen, what comes to mind is: A winter landscape frozen in time. I thought Christmas in the dinning room should feel hushed and quiet.
The Husband says it this way: “Your Christmas theme is really all about inclimate weather!”
What can I say, he’s married to a southern girl who longs for snow
Since I don’t have my chair covers yet, I added a bit of silver ribbon, icy pine cones and a bit of bling to each chair!
Of course there are these graceful deer…I’ve managed to put beautiful deer here and there all over the house.
These are some of my favorites because they sparkle! Dollar Store vases and candles give a nice glow. I gave the clear vases a bit of a faux mercury glass paint treatment posted HERE)
In the cloche are my Gramma’s pink Christmas balls. She used them for years and then passed them along to me knowing how much I looovvve pink!
The wreath over the buffet is one I used on the front door at the old house every January…It has an icy winter look, so it’s perfect for the dining room.
Dollar Store boxes with pretty ribbon…
And my yarn & Christmas ball wreath in pastels over the little blue hutch~
The dining room Christmas tree is definitely a sissy tree…but oh how I love it!
The dining room opens to the entry-way. I carried the softer colors right into the entry using my pastel village and tiny Christmas trees on the foyer table…(Tiny Christmas Tree tutorial HERE)
See those little white deer? I’ve become a bit obsessed with these lovely creatures since we started seeing them every week when we walk on the trails.
Do you add Christmas to your dining room?
~Hoping your day is full of beauty my friends~
(If you want to drop in on Monday, we’ll look at Christmas in the rest of the house!)
