Our Christmas Dining Room

Hello friends, today I’m sharing our Christmas dining room. This year our Christmas table will be smaller. So, it’s particularly important makeit pretty.

Also today, my friend Tammy from Patina & Paint is sharing her Christmas table. Be sure to visit her blog and there will be a link at the end of this post.

I normally use table runners allowing the pretty oak to show. I add a center runner for additional guests.

A wood French antique crate adds warmth and is filled with an assortment of greens surrounding small frosted trees.

Next, pinecones, walnuts and dehydrated tangerines finish the natural look.

Gilded and natural walnuts, small pinecones adorned with bells are adjacent to the candlesticks. The bells I purchased from Etsy and can be found in this post.

Also, cedar chargers at each place setting add more Christmas touches. Next, adding silver chargers brings a bit of elegance.

The dishes are layered in various patterns at each place setting with a bread plate. Bottle brush trees also a favorite complete the look.

Silverware holders in the shape of stockings truly adds a fun touch. Meanwhile, keeping things cohesive red glasses are the finishing touch.

Wreaths hanging with soft ribbon adds another naturl element to our Christmas dinig room.  Mason jar lids painted with antique gold adds a bit of gilding and elegance. This project is quick, easy and can be found in this post.

Now Let’s Look at More of Our Christmas Dining Room

The buffet is kept simple with silver bowl and is filled with vintage ornaments and a lace crown.

The mantel shown above is a thrifted find.  By the way, it needed alot of repairs and you can read about it in this post

A pitcher filled with pinecones adds a simple rustic look.   The walnuts keep with the natural element theme shown in our Christmas dining room next to a Curier & Ives plate.

A tureen filled with pinecones together with dehydrated orange slices also adds more natural elements.  Additionally, orange slices, an antique jingle bell wreath and an old ornament with a Florentine candelabra add warmth especially in the evenings. 

I also think you’ll enjoy reading how to make this fall grapevine citrus wreath and Pin this project for next season.

Finally, in this corner of our Chrristmas dining room while thrifting I found the Florentine table. It looks especially pretty with bottle brush trees, a candle and vintage mercury glass garland. The garland is placed inside an antique Florentine cherub dish adds whimsy.

A basket filled with Christmas greens is a perfect finishing touch.

I hope you enjoyed our Christmas dining room and you will visit Tammy at Patina & Paint.
