When I consider each year how to build new Christmas memories or even looking back on the years past, it so often involves food. This year I wanted my dining room to enhance the Christmas experience by designing a warm, beautiful and serene space to celebrate with family and friends.
My inspiration started with my place setting from Pier 1. I layered a burlap ruffle placemat and the silver Chania charger followed by my Martillo mist green plates paired with these snowflake salad plates. The place setting is finished off with the two-toned hemstitch collection ruby red napkin folded into a Christmas tree and topped off with a napkin ring from Hobby Lobby made up of a little greenery and pine cones.
The table centerpiece is lined with this fantastic textured runner from Pier 1 and topped with three beautiful wreaths from Hobby Lobby. In the center of each wreath I placed a birch candle holder and a white candle wrapped in netted ribbon, also from Hobby Lobby.
On the buffet, I created this serene little scene with frosted trees, a chapel, house, and deer all from T. J. Maxx and HomeGoods. They sit on a simple neutral stripped table runner.
My dining room Christmas tree is seven foot and filled with metallics, whites and blues. There is a collection of Christmas ornaments, two kinds of garland, and silver poinsettia flowers and berries. The tree is topped with a gold and burlap colored bow using two types of ribbon the stream down the tree.
This is my version of holiday dining. What’s your style? Is it bold or subtle? Fun or elegant? Maybe a little bit of everything? I hope you have fun this season with your holiday design!
