The Dining Room is Decked Out for Christmas!

Dec 4, 2018

The best part of Christmas is the decor and food so naturally the dining room is one of my favorite spots during the holidays. This year I added a this a bit of burgundy, but still kept it light and bright by adding it in small amounts. It's a great traditional color for a more elegant look than bright red, and it goes so well with gray decor that still remains popular.

I love traditional homes with fresh greenery and fresh fruit in the garlands. I re-created this look in a more attainable manner by mixing fresh greenery with my dried boxwood garland, and adding pomegranates and faux berries to pick up the dark red color of the wreath bows. The runner needed a little something so I added a wide ribbon in the same color down the middle under the garland.

If you remember I added these etched glasses for Thanksgiving. I like them because they are seasonless and can be use as wine or water goblets. For Christmas, I decided to look for gold chargers to match the chandelier I installed a few months ago. I fell in love with these gold chargers the minute I saw them!

Here's a closer look. There are several versions, but I prefer these because the gold is combined with clear glass. I like gold, but not too much gold.

I decided to use my buffet as a dessert area this year. I'm not sure why I didn't so this before. It's functional and looks so cute! Maybe it will be a visual reminder throughout dinner to save room for dessert?
