Our 2015 Christmas Dining Room ...

Greetings, friends!

Are you done shopping yet?  You'd laugh if you saw my list of all that needs to be done!  

Before I get busy, I want to share our Christmas dining room with you!  This year, I strayed away from my usual silver and gold theme and thought it'd be fun to add in lots of color.

We also have new companions in here, too ... nutcrackers!  Our fellas are usually spotted on our mantel, but, this year, I brought them in here to stand guard.

Thankfully, these handsome gentleman have stood the test of "storage time" despite having been tossed around quite a bit in their bins over the years.

Their sequins have stayed put and still glisten beautifully when the sunlight streams onto them.

Although, there are hidden drops of hot glue where they've had other "injuries" here and there.

Over on our table, I added a few, as well, along with another one on our mirrored accent chest across the room.  Gotta spread the nutcracker love, right? 

Since my table runners are MIA, I turned to an old shutter to do the job. 

I then layered a simple garland, faux grapes, cheese, corks, ornaments and cheese knives on top.

In order to give these new little guys a bit more presence (and height) on the table, I perched them on top of a glass hurricane filled with holiday nuts ... he's ready to crack one for you when you're ready!

As for our tree, last year, I did a smaller tabletop top tree, but this year, I opted to bring back a taller tree and fill it up ...

adding corks, wine bottles and mini wine glasses,

along with a few mini nutcrackers, too.  

I'm really enjoying the jewel tones in here this year!

Maybe ... just maybe ... we'll eat Christmas dinner in here with our wooden friends!

Thanks for stopping by ... I always appreciate your company!

  5. Looks GORGEOUS!!! I have to tell ya I copied your idea of perching the nutcracker on top of nuts (for some reason this year I have an affinity for the lil guys....maybe because I blinged the heck outta him and his nuts! LOL). I glittered the edge of the almonds I placed in the jar....I'll try and get a blog post up by tonight (moving during the holidays is CRAZY!!! What was I thinking?!?!?!). Speaking of - where did you get your floating shelves? They're exactly what I'm looking for! I know you may have mentioned in a previous post...
