Last week I promised a post revealing the finished dining room...It's been crazy around here with decorating for Christmas and shopping and getting ready for McG's 50th birthday, which is tomorrow! We also have had some holiday events and things to attend, so I apologize for being a little late on this reveal.
I posted this buffet vignette not that long ago - this is our old buffet...
and this is our new buffet decked out in its holiday finery...
As you can see my Christmas centerpiece (here) has made its way to another spot in the dining room. It's a fickle thing that can't seem to find a comfortable spot. It's first home was the ledge between the dining room and the kitchen, then it migrated to the dining room table, but it was too big to leave on the table during meals . So, now it I think it's found its home on the new buffet. As you can see I have an ornament wreath, which I made a few years ago using a plant ring from the garden center and a whole LOT of ornaments.
This is the view of the dining room from the top of the stairs as you enter.
We are really loving our new floors and our dining room furniture.
I also added a small tree in the living room - a little alpine tree that I placed in a bucket and decorated with ornaments from the Dollar Tree. For some reason from this angle, the tree looks like its right up against the ceiling. In actuality, its about 2 1/2 lower than the ceiling.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of our small dining room. I can't wait to have company over to entertain tomorrow!
How's your Christmas decorating coming?
