bHome is promoting a very generous giveaway from one of bHome’s bloggers, Farmhouse Refined.
See below for details of this $250.00 Giveway!
Today, I will present to you Christmas Traditions in the Dining Room.
I always find great inspiration of Holiday decor from the beautiful towns of
Charleston and Williamsburg during the Holiday Season.
I brought out some items that I have not used in several years
bringing them back to life in the dining room this year.
Several years ago, I adorned this tree with faux sugared fruit.
I got away from a tree in the dining room these past few years
and decided it needed a comeback to set the tone for the Dining Room of Christmas Traditions.
The tree stands in one corner of the dining room bay window area.
I applied some faux evergreen wreaths to a folded napkin using a few basting stitches
and placed them on each side chair and tied with a ribbon on the other side
to give the chairs a festive look.
The Charleston Wreath by Balsam Hill has been hanging in the bay window
since the Fall season. In the Fall I had a ribbon/bow of pretty Fall colors and now
it is hanging without a ribbon as it is so beautiful without any embellishment.
Can you see my back yard through the window covered with fallen leaves?
The faux fruit trees came out of storage, dusted off
and placed on the tea table that was relocated from the Great Room to the dining room.
Because I began with a traditional theme using sugared fruit,
it was then appropriate to use my favorite set of Christmas dishes,
Holiday Tartan by Lenox that I have had for about 10 years.
I so love the pattern of fruit and plaid.
A vintage sherbet/custard goblet sits on top of the stack of dishes
with a shiny red glitzy sugared pear.
Originally I placed sugared fruit in this vegetable bowl. I wasn’t thrilled with it.
So I went to Trader Joe’s for some flowers and greenery.
Luckily they had a bouquet of winter greens that I used for filler in the arrangement.
The bowl was a gift from my friend Linda and we have fond and funny memories
of taking a floral arranging class together about 25 years ago…Wow!…has it been that long?
The placemats are actually plaid napkins by Ralph Lauren.
I placed them on the diagonal with one of the corners hanging off the edge of the table.
It is a great and different look.
The holly and pinecone napkins are also by Ralph Lauren. (HomeGoods)
The candlesticks are Luminara by Balsam Hill. They have since been discontinued.
I added two sweet Byer Carolers to the table to sing some carols.
A silver trophy tray set for after dinner coffee or tea
is placed on a small side table next to the dining room table.
You can see a better view of the side chair adornment in this photo.
Folded napkin, faux wreath and a small ornament hanging from the wreath.
