Christmas has arrived in the dining room at last. I used fresh greens with silver, gold and brown accents, a sort of woodsy sparkle theme. Here’s the sideboard with the horse art that came from Home Goods, a thrifted horse head figure and a Christmas ornament tree. This room was painted recently in Sherwin Williams Anew gray. It’s a taupey gray and I never thought I’d love a gray room but I do!
I like using fresh greens to decorate at Christmas but the clean up is a mess! My husband loves that part…….if you knew him, you’d know what I mean. He has the shop vac sitting in the little bedroom all ready to go.
The chippy horses head is wearing a collar of gold stars.
Here’s my ornament tree made by threading ornaments on a knitting needle. I tucked in some white feather boa to hide the needle. It’s sitting on a silver platter with sparkly pinecones.
Snowflakes and silver on the painted bombe chest on the other side of the room with pinecones and tree bark under the cloche.
I love the look of tarnished silver but one day I just might decide to polish it for a different look.
The hutch is full of white ironstone and more greens and pinecones.
Here’s the sweet little deer that I’ve had since childhood. I put it out every year.
The tablecloth is the only new thing in this room. I got it at Target. I used old wedding ring china and thrifted silver trees on the table. The napkins are folded into a Christmas tree shape.
Stars and icicles dangle from the chandelier.
Here’s a long shot into the room.
See the almonds on each end of the table? OH MY they are delicious! Honey cinnamon almonds from Target. I have them hidden now so someone……ahem…doesn’t gobble them up!
These are vintage napkins that I’ve had for years. The snowflake tags will be used as place cards.
So that’s the dining room, next will be the kitchen and family room. I still didn’t do anything on the front porch because it been so cold, in the 20s this week. I better get out there when the sun shines today or it won’t get done.
There’s so much Christmas in blogland, too much maybe…. what will happen when it’s over? A collective sigh on relief I think.
