Bringing Holiday Cheer to the Dining Room

Pin It

've started some holiday/winter decor in the dining room. By default, the large antique harvest table is the centerpiece of the room. It seats 10-12 guests and takes up most of the space. Since we are not hosting any holiday events this year, I'm using some large scale pieces to create a tablescape that won't need to be moved anytime soon.

A column base topped with an aqua and peacock feather tree (found at Goodwill!) are centered on the table.

Additional aqua accessories, nestled in a broken garden urn bring more color to the design.

This cloche-topped pedestal base features a dainty glass tree that I found last summer (another Goodwill find!)

Some silvery glass trees add shimmer and sheen to the winter forest.

The next step is to add some cheer to the chandelier!! Hint: It will likely be similar to last year's chandelier transformation!

  11. The peacock tree has me breathing happy sighs. Swoon.

  12. I'm giggling thinking of the comments my husband might have if I were to bring in a hunk of concrete with rebar sticking out no less into the house to decorate with. :) I love your style, Amy! Kelly
