Our Dining Room With a Touch of Christmas

Our home is decorated for Christmas and I would like to  start sharing it with all of you.  Today’s post will give you a glimpse of our dining room.

The place settings consist of a red charger plate, layered with a glittered snowflake,  white dishes  accented with seasonal greens and topped with a white napkin.  The napkin holders are embellished with a glittered bow.

As with many things in my home, I have placed something of my mother’s.  The etched water glasses bring Mom to my dining room table.

I decorated the candles for my centerpiece with greens and a silver glittered snowflake.  I wanted a home made Christmas touch to the candles, but something that wasn’t overpowering.

This year, I added greens, Christmas balls and red napkins with white napkin rings to add color to my china cabinet.  Did you notice the cups with the C and G?  I was in a store a few months ago, and noticed these two lone mugs.  They seemed to be calling me…by name.  With the G for Gail and C,  for my husband Charlie, I had to bring them home.

I added a bit of silver and green to my buffet.  I purchased the small evergreen trees and added some glass like glittered  branches to the vases that were already there.  The candles I decorated with greens and added a  silver glittered snowflake.  In a small wicker basket, I placed some silver Christmas balls on top of a bed of greens.

Below is a close up of the silver bulbs.  I really like the “frost” on the greens.

Below is my dining room at night.  Candlelight always gives a room a different look and feel.

And now my family can feel a bit of Christmas, as they enter our dining room.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoyed the tour.
