Christmas Decor~In The Dining Room

Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year — family and friends gather,
there’s a spirit in the air of goodwill towards men, we celebrate the birth of Jesus,  we make memories and keep family traditions going. I have always loved decorating for Christmas. I like cozy, thrifty, and vintage and love when a home comes alive with the feel and aromas of the season. Today, I am sharing my dining room with all of you. This year, it is primarily decorated with greenery, pine cones, and vintage Shiny Brite ornaments. I chose to use only aqua, white and silver in the room this year, and I am really happy with how it turned out. Thank you for coming by and I hope you have a fun weekend, shopping, wrapping, baking or whatever might be on your calendar.

                                                        Dining Room 2014

                                                  I just added to what I already had
                                                  on my buffet...simple is so 2014!

                                                 Pulled all my aqua and silver vintage
                                                 Shiny Brite ornaments out and placed
                                                                  them here this year.

                                                         My ironstone collection
                                                                 stayed in place.

                                                  No Christmas tree here this year...
                                                    instead I decorated my shutter.

                                               Can't go wrong with boxwood, burlap
                                                             and vintage ornaments.

                                         Dried hydrangeas, pine cones, and silver
                                                ornaments fill my dough bowl.

                                              This extra large pine cone came from
                                                                    my own yard.

                                                     These pretty hydrangeas also
                                                            came from my yard.

                                              The only thing that I purchased
                                               this year, were these cute gift tags
                                                            from Michael's.
                                              Note: I love using things like these
                                              gift tags for something totally different.

                                                   Added a few pretties to my
                                                  shelf for the holiday season.

                                             More of my extra large pine cones
                                                 were added to this vignette.

You have a wonderful collection of old ornaments! And in the right color for you! The blue is so crisp and pretty. All just lovely.

Judy Pimperl said...

Very pretty, Linda! We're using the same colors this year aqua and white with the ironstone and silver pieces...Great minds think alike! I never did find a dress that would work, so my party is just staged like nobody showed up! lol
I love the dough bowl and those BIG pine cones, too.

So many pretty things! I love all the touches of turquoise!

Pam Kessler said...

Very pretty, Linda! I'm with you on the simple for 2014 thing. I'm not into clutter this year (although my husband may disagree with that statement :). Love the combination of pinecones and hydrangea.

Soft and pretty, love your Christmas touches!

Leslie Anne Tarabella said...

Your posts have made me so sad (boo-hoo) this week, because your old ornaments are so pretty, and my tree just FELL and smashed my favorite shiny brites!!!!

Oh, pitiful me! I do adore your decorations, especially the Train full of toys and wise men ornaments. The entire place looks peaceful, sparkly and beautiful.

Very, very nice!
