Christmas Dining Room Tour

Although I've shared sneak peeks of our dining room Christmas decor here and there in previous posts, we are now enjoying a completed room.  Bring on the guests!
I love visiting other homes in blogland and seeing the beauty to mark the magical season, and it has been an honor for me to welcome you  here...


Three simple trees stand atop the runner.  I used paper doilies as tree skirts for two...

...and a linen ruffled tree skirt for the center tree:

For the tablecloth, a vintage sheet was used.  It was a fortuitous find at the Flea Market, since it has a beautiful monogrammed 'F'  :

Here is another view of the room from the entry way:

After making a gathered fabric heart wreath for my Etsy shop, I was inspired to make similar wreaths for Christmas.  I put four circular ones on chairs, tied with blue ribbon & two festive jingle bells:

Golden angels on the chandelier with the built-in hutch behind.  I love its' original arched window door:

Next to the hutch sits a humble kitchen chair.  It's been dressed up with glittered decor:



Inside the built-in hutch...blue and white:



A view from another corner:

Some recent additions to the room...small but significant:

(vintage French prayer cards from the Nesting trip)

I'll be sharing this post with White Wednesday this week, and enjoying all the heavenly inspiration there.

What an elegant and inviting dining room! You've decorated it so beautifully! I have a corner cupboard with an arched window similar to yours in the garage...awaiting a couple coats of white paint. Seeing yours looking so stunning has inspired me to grab a paint brush and get to work! Your little ruffled wreats are delightful and I just adore your "humble" kitchen chair! It really is charming! Thank you for the lovely tour!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
Amanda

How gorgeous your dining room looks, such a nostalgic, romantic feel. I am an addict for white, in fact our house is referred to as "The White House" so your decorating really appeals to me! I particularly love your gorgeous chandelier and the little cherubs that are hanging from it, just lovely!
