I've officially finished decking the halls! As much as I love decorating, it's always a relief to FINALLY be done. Last week I shared our sage green and blue Christmas tree tour, and today I'm sharing how I carried that color theme into our dining room.
PS. I was hoping the weather would cooperate and give me a little peek of sunshine while photographing this space but I should of known better, it's winter in the Midwest! Which means it's day after day of gloomy, blah-ish skies...so please forgive the subpar pics!
In the past, I stuck with rather simple dining room centerpieces. We typically host my side of the family for Christmas dinner and the idea of putting a lot of thought and effort into really dressing up the table, only to have to remove it for our gathering always personally seem like a waste of time for me. But this year my SIL and I switched hosting assignments and since we'll be traveling to their home for the holidays I thought it was a great time to be a tad bit more elaborate with my table decor!
I didn't really have any ideas in mind for our tablescape until I spotted these fair isle embossed Christmas trees. I thought the glass design on them with their brass bases were so pretty. I paired the trio of them with some soft green trees I picked up at a local antique store. They're actually candles but I can't imagine anyone would ever want to burn them!
I scattered ornaments, mercury glass, and and my candlestick decor among the trees to help add more shape and textural variety.
I love the view from the other end of the table with the magical twinkling of the Christmas tree lights in the background.
As with every season, our antique hutch is the perfect place for me to display some of my favorite thrifty finds. Groupings of small bottle brush trees inside my ironstone help set a more festive, wintery scene
I played a little musical chairs with the furniture in our living room since we needed to make room for the Christmas tree, therefore, the blue catalog dresser made it's way in here and I actually think this may be it's new home. I always felt like this wall between our windows needed something and never realized until now that this piece was the perfect size for it.
I didn't get any close-up shots of it but that little Norfolk tree back in our corner cabinet makes me so happy. I love the simplicity of it sitting in one of my sage green thrift store vessels.
And that's a wrap on our Christmas dining room! I did my best on trying to stick with mainly soft greens to compliment my everyday blues and so far it feels like just the right amount of color. I'm hoping to photograph and share the rest of our holiday home tour next week but EEK time is getting away from us, we're 2 weeks away from the big day, guys!
