Greetings from snowy Montana! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have had the absolute pleasure of previewing the 2019 HGTV Dream Home the past few days out in Whitefish, Montana. It’s been a great couple days and I can’t wait to share all of the fun details with you here in the coming weeks!
But first, let’s make another stop on our Christmas Tour through the house- in the dining room.
While this is our second year in the new house for Christmas, it is the first that the dining room is really usable. So thankful I tackled this space during the One Room Challenge last spring.
There is already quite a lot going on in this room so I didn’t really add much to get her ready for Christmas. The main thing is this festive flocked tree I found at Walmart for around $35.
It’s the first flocked tree I have ever owned, and I will say that for $35, it is the perfect little tree for this corner. I just added ornaments I had in green, blue and gold to go with the decor in here.
Another simple addition is a wreath over this big moss green mirror. The mirror was added during the One Room Challenge and I am still loving this punch of color in here. I just used an over the door wreath hanger to hang it, and then added a navy bow.
The pair of chairs I scored for $4.04 during the One Room Challenge are still in here as I haven’t upgraded them yet. I think they look cute with the tree! I also still want to add more silver platters around the mirror. It sure is a process isn’t it?! 🙂
The bird statement wall is on the other side and I still love it! I know I owe you a tutorial on how I pulled this off for $100. Honestly, it was a labor of love and I still have P.T.S.D. when I try to sit down and write it so hopefully next year I will be able to get it down in a tutorial. Y’all, pulling off a room in six weeks during the One Room Challenge is always worth it, but so stressful when you are doing it!
I’ve got the table set with my DIY Antelope Plate Chargers and the Classic Spode Christmas plates. I am so giddy to host Christmas Eve in here this year!
I will definitely be using the chargers for our Christmas Eve dinner and a simple tip when setting your table is to grab some Rosemary from your grocery store.
Here you can see I used it in the simple paper place card as well as as a sprig in the copper mug cocktail. It definitely adds a nice festive detail.
Can you even believe we are less than two weeks away from Christmas? I finally pulled the trigger on a big Amazon order last night but I still have lots of shopping to do!
