Christmas House Tour - Dining Room

Hello merry-making friends!  Are you enjoying the season?  I have been having such fun putting some holly-jolly touches all around and thought I'd share our dining room with you.  Here is our table centerpiece of candlesticks with handmade NOEL ornaments.  I hung a simple balsam wreath with white linen ribbon on our built-in cupboard in the background...



Another view of the room...

The white cupboard in the front corner has touches of blue, gray, glitter and greenery:



This lovely vintage-paper cross was handmade by the talented Beth, an owner of the Nesting store I visited recently.  I love it!  The beaded garland is from Curious Sofa:

This wreath and sprig also came from the Nesting trip:

One of our living room chairs ended up in here, so I simply put gift boxes on top.  The fabric corsage is from Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture:

My favorite petite white table...

On top is a Tilda's World tree, with Mini Angels I made from a pattern in the "Tilda's Winter Ideas" book.  I'll share more about these angels later this week:

I also placed some miniature swan gift boxes I made under this tree: 

Another corner of the room holds a small green tree keeping company with my favorite feminine chair:

I found these paper mache stars in the Stampington website shop and glittered them:

These cones on the  mirror were made last year.  This one where I added an image of a Nicol Sayre doll I had admired is my favorite:

Lastly, the 'winter wonderland' side buffet:




This is the tree and gifts that were featured in the Autumn issue of Somerset Life.  I was so happy to have them returned for my decorating!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'm enjoying visiting lots of your festive homes, too. 
Hope to see you at these parties:

Oh Susan! Your Christmas decor is absolutely enchanting! I love the trees in the jars, the ornaments atop the silver compote, the lovely glittered stars dangling on the angel wings, and my favorite thing is the delightful Tilda tree in the silver bowl! I love, love, love it!

But I love it all!! Thanks so much for sharing your loveliness at Blissful Whites Wednesday!! I am just starting to decorate and you have truly inspired me!!

Christmas joy to you!

Susan,
Always something beautiful here!
Such lovely photos.
Because of you.... I have started to add touches of French blue to my decor. I've always decorated with pinks before. French blue has become one of my new favorite colors.
Happy Holidays to you and your family.
Warm wishes.... my friend.
Elizabeth
