Holiday Cheer in the Dining Room

Hola! So, before we go any further, I should clarify… I don’t have a dining room. I have a “dining area.”

I desperately want to have a real dining room, with a beautiful China Cabinet and Buffet, that I can accessorize. I would love to have a table where I can create festive centerpieces, and tablescapes. Someday… I’m crossing my fingers.

For now, I’ll have to settle with my Teddy Bear Cart “Repurposed Bar Cart.” Sigh…

My Pier One Bottles are back, along with festive bottle stoppers from Pottery Barn.

Christmas Decorations Yankee Candle

These little mice are from Yankee Candle. Because it’s so close to the wall, I used a battery operated candle.

Christmas Stocking

I’ve had this particular stocking since I was a little girl, and visited Santa Claus at the North Pole.

On Santa's lap

That’s me! It’s actually the only picture I have with Santa Claus, as a child.

And of course, the Elves helped decorate!

Seasonal Table

My all-purpose table is looking pretty festive. It’s the kitchen table, dining room table, craft table, homework table, etc. I have to keep it simple to be practical, but it shares the space with the living room, so I want it to look nice.

I couldn’t find anything to use as a centerpiece, so I filled my wooden piggy bowl with pinecones. I actually do have a centerpiece that I bought last year, but I think I accidentally packed it away with things that I don’t plan on using, until we’re in a single family house or more organized.

This little gnome votive holder is new this year. I found it at Epcot in the Norway Pavilion.

This is the same votive holder, just the opposite side. Can you tell, I love gnomes!?

Pine Cone Elf

I decided to keep one of my pine cone elves out for Christmas.

This apothecary jar with the mercury glass ornaments remains the same all year. I just tie the ribbon on at Christmas.

That’s all for now in the dining room. Can you believe that there’s only two more weeks until Christmas? I keep putting things off with the mindset that I have plenty of time, but I really don’t. I’d better get shopping and wrapping!

Leave a comment. I'd love to know what you're thinking!
