Here I am with more Christmas inspiration for you! Today I’m joining a few friends sharing their homes decorated for the holidays as part of the Home for the Holidays Tour.
I seem to be decorating bit by bit this year, which I actually kind of like. Usually I try to get it all done at once, but that does take a few days and it gets a bit overwhelming. This year I’ve done it slowly. I started with my kitchen first, and then my entry way, and yesterday, I shared my living room all decked out for the season. And today, it’s all about the simple touches I added to my Romantic Christmas Dining Room…
My blush and white palette that I’ve used this year continues in here. And though I considered adding a tree to this room, to be honest, it’s so close to the living room that it seemed like a bit of overkill. We can see the tree right from this space as it’s between the two rooms, and I love the glow it brings to the room when we’re eating in here or playing games.
I talked about the little wreaths I added to my chairs in my kitchen tour, but then I decided to add them to the dining room chairs as well. At first, I had just pinned them on. But once I found enough to do all the chairs, I wanted to make it a little prettier so I used some cream silk ribbon to tie them on. (Mine are from the Target dollar bin so I can’t link them for you, but I found a similar and even cuter one on Etsy!)
I have to say, I’m completely smitten with the “wreath on the chair” thing! How have I never done this before?! It adds so much charm to the whole space. I’m sure this will be a tradition for me from now on!
On the dining table, I added some hydrangeas to my favorite French urn. I love using hydrangeas all year as they always look good, and they work with so many other flowers and greens. Mercury glass candlesticks are from Pottery Barn.
This time, some cedar and pine boughs are added for a seasonal touch.
On one of the buffets are my favorite vintage Santas, along with a new little white tree I got this year.
I love the size and the color, and with just a few mini mercury glass ornaments, it looks so adorable!
On the opposite side of the room, I have a collection of white houses and churches. They are a reproduction version of the traditional Putz houses. I’ve gotten some at Home Goods and TJ Maxx, but my two new ones this year are from Pier One and Pottery Barn. I’m in love with their vintage charm!
I’m guessing that most of you are just starting or are about to start decorating, so hopefully you’re getting some wonderful ideas from all the tours! I’ll also be bringing you a Christmas tablescape later this week, as well as my Farmhouse Christmas family room tour. So there’s lots more Christmas inspiration to come! And, there is also a fun giveaway you can enter at the bottom of the post!
