Hello Friends! Sometimes I get asked the question, especially after I share an elaborate tablescape post, if my dining room always looks that way? The answer is always NO, because let’s face it, sometimes my dining room table gets lost under the piles of stuff that life can accumulate, to the point where my husband will ask if we still own a dining room table?! Ha Ha! For the most part our dining room looks like it did in the Holiday Housewalk this year. Well when I clean it for company. But that also gave me the idea of some easy ways to decorate your table for Christmas even when you aren’t hosting a dinner, because sometimes walking by that empty bare table when the rest of the house is decorated for christmas can feel a little sad. So I’ll be back later this week sharing a few different ideas for some simple, easy table decor that will last you though to the new year. Today, I’m sharing a few more glimpse’s of how I decorated our dining room for Christmas this year.
I love the addition of this linen tablecloth to our dining room for Christmas. It’s casual feel helps things from feeling too formal, and the big check design reminds me of the plaids I love to bring out in the winter.
I used a faux garland down the center of my table, and that way I don’t have to worry about it dying. I actually used two garlands, and place them in a figure eight, so I could have room in the middle for my decor pieces.
I used a mix of glass trees I found at HomeGoods last year, some mercury glass ornaments, and mercury glass votives, staggered in different heights in the middle of the garland.
I carried the look through to our buffet by using more HomeGoods glass trees, and pops of green, in my new favorite Lindsay Letters Holiday canvas, and some greens.
