Hello hello! It is officially Christmas and I have been a busy girl decking the halls around here. Even with an early decorating start before Thanksgiving, I feel like I haven’t even made a dent, but at least the dining room is ready to go. Today I am joining a great group of bloggers sharing our Christmas Dining Rooms. It feels SO great to have a room completely ready to go for Christmas! If you are coming over from County Road 407 – welcome!
If you are new here, I’m Heather, the zhushing-crafting-iced-coffee-drinking-mom behind the blog. My husband and I live in Atlanta with our two boys – ages 8 and 11. This is our sixth Christmas in this home, which is hard to believe, and while at this point I like to do some of the same tried and true decorations for Christmas, I still enjoy some tweaking here and there.
This blog brings me so much joy and I am so glad you are joining me today to have a look around! One way to get caught up with me lately is to read my Front Porch Coffee Talks where I share what’s on my mind like old friends chatting over coffee.
Alright! Well with no further ado- let’s make some spirits bright!
If you’ve been around here for awhile, you might recognize my dining room. It got a post-quarantine (AKA removing of the home school headquarters) glow up and I have LOVED using metallics in here the past few holiday seasons. You can read all about that update HERE> A POST QUARANTINE DINING ROOM GLOW UP
MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT || SETTING THE TABLE
I love our round dining table, but honestly I have struggled with what to use as the centerpiece. Last year I “accidently” created this ornament bowl and it is just the perfect thing for a festive centerpiece. To make this I just stuffed it with paper towels and then piled the ornaments. Yay for buying those after Christmas sale ornaments a few years ago. 🙂
I couldn’t resist a pop of red among all of the metallic and grabbed some red napkins. Can you tell I folded them like Christmas trees?
MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT || GLOWING VIGNETTE
The faux garland got a dose of metallic with some pretty gold and silver ornaments. Realizing I still had bunches of metallic ornaments, I decided to GO FOR IT and bauble it up!
MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT || DINING ROOM CHRISTMAS TREE
Lastly, the flocked tree with metallic ornaments is the perfect complement to the wallpaper ceiling and my DIY art. I love the pretty white tree with the shiny ornaments and neutral ribbons.
Thank you for popping in to our dining room today. I can’t wait to have some Christmas music playing, some yummy food dished up and enjoy this space with friends and family this holiday season! I hope you found a nugget or two of inspiration for you own home!
