The Holiday Dining Room Featuring MacKenzie-Childs

I cannot say enough how head over heels, turning cartwheels across the floor

happy I am with my Holiday Dining Room this year.

It is a bit of a departure for me as it is not in my

usual traditional colors and decor of Christmas.

I gave you a sneak peek a while back showing you a tree with some black and white,

well actually more like black and cream ribbon, that I hand flocked.

The inspiration for the dining room this year began with a tea kettle.

Yes, a tea kettle!

Here is my Holiday Dining Room Featuring MacKenzie-Childs.

A Christmas “Greenscape” in the Dining Room

I thought I would change out my china this year for the Christmas table . .

My Lenox Holiday Tartan.

If I am feeling energetic, I may try another tablescape later 🙂

For today, the table is set, a “greenscape” . .
