All Spruced Up: Our Dining Room Christmas Decor

Hi there!

On the topic of Christmas decor, I wanted to share our dining room, too.  This room always gets an updated table centerpiece and chalkboard, and I decorate the hutch base that was my grandparents'.

The hutch is the primary surface that I can decorate, so I added a red, green, and white vignette.   For the "florals", I used a vase with fresh eucalyptus,  along with some faux berry sprigs, and some fresh greenery in an antique hobnail bowl.  I put the bowl on a white ceramic mini cake stand.  Also on the hutch is a pair of wooden skis, a little lighted tree with plaid tree skirt, and a wooden deer.  Lastly, I added a vintage hobnail milk glass vase with some small berry sprigs and greenery, some green and red candles in star-shaped glass candleholders, and a DIY pompom garland. I love how it all works together and how it turned out! Some of those things will get put away after the new year, and I'll create more of a simple, winter feel.

I used one of my copper trays again to corral the winter centerpiece.  I added the large hobnail bowl that's a match to the one on the hutch, wrapped some berry garland around it, and filled it with fresh greenery and pine cones.  For now, I also have out some cranberry colored placemats, which match the walls.  

I added some garland to the banister, and tucked in some sprigs of real greenery.  I also added a big bow, because this retired cheerleader takes bows seriously!  This view might be one of my favorites in the house this time of year. 

I made some simple snowflake ornament garlands for the front windows, to add a little something.  The snowflakes are so pretty in the candlelight! 

The morning sunlight is pretty, too. :)

The doors haven't been forgotten, either.  I have this red and white yarn-wrapped wreath on our front door, which shows up so well, given that the door is dark green.

Inside, I have this felt and grapevine wreath on one door:

A red wooden cutout snowflake on another:

...and a fresh boxwood wreath on another.  The boxwood is actually drying out super fast (even though I sprayed it with water- is this just what happens? It's my first one... any tips??), so I have a wintery felted wreath planned, which I'll make during Christmas vacation.

Do you decorate your dining room for Christmas and/or winter? I'd love to see your decor! Feel free to tell me about it or link to it in the comments below.

Also, Merry Christmas, if you celebrate!
