Rustic Dining Room Decorated For Christmas

                                                                   Hello Friends

It's that magical time of year again...Time to deck the halls, wrap the presents and trim the trees!

Every Year on Christmas morning, after all the gifts are unwrapped, my family & I gather around the table for a leisurely Christmas breakfast.  I serve pancakes with fresh fruit, warm maple syrup, freshly squeezed orange juice and lots of hot coffee.  I savor this moment every year!  This simple pleasure of slowing down and spending time with the ones I love is what matters to me the most on Christmas.

WELCOME
Come on in and I'll show you around our dining room.


I placed pine cones on top of tartan plaid napkins.
The delicate white plates were a gift from my mom.


My tabletop tree is adorned with vintage lights and ornaments handed down to me from my parents. The tree sits inside a vintage Dewar's Liquor box placed on top of a vintage sewing table.
Chippy antique shutters with pine cone garland lean against the wall.

When it comes to decorating a holiday table, I take my cue from mother nature.  I used branches and pine cones collected from my yard for a rustic center piece. The cranberries in hurricane jars add a festive pop of red. 









I made this simple spray of pine cones and hung it on the shutters.

Here is a close-up of my little Christmas tree adorned with vintage lights and balls.

On the opposite side of the room sits my favorite find.  A stainless steel medical cabinet.  This is where I keep our everyday dishes along with other items that we use for special occasions.  Next to the cabinet are two bookshelves that I painted and added casters to. Dishes, bowls and platters are stacked on the shelves.

  A couple of sweater pillows keeps the wicker love seat warm and cozy.  I used red, green and navy this year.....Here's a little secret..... The pillows are slip covered with wool sweaters and the cushions are covered with a tartan plaid scarf.










I made the drift wood sail boat, the leaf garland and wreaths.
A french tea towel hangs from the door with a silver bell on top.
  







Three green glass bottles with cotton branches sit on top of this pretty painted chest.




I hope I inspired you to decorate your dining room for Christmas.
