Christmas-Ready Dining room

If you liked my Halloween decor in the dining room last time, here is my Dining room now...

Sparking Dining

One of the big impact things in this room is the glitter wallpaper! You all know what that is - the glitter gift wrap from Walmart I was bragging about in my previous post. For $4 a piece, this wall accent made my dining room partey ready!!

Centerpiece, I mean, centerpieces!

The Centerpiece of the Dining room table consisted of lots of candles in different shapes and sizes. Again, you know me, they were all bought last year on clearance. The Reindeers are from Pier 1 last year, the white candles with red cherries were from Kohls. The Silver candle sticks were from TJ Maxx ($2.00 for two - score!). The clear glass candlesticks are from CB2 and the long tealight holder is from Crate and barrel bought 4 years ago. The runner was from Kohls last year. I also added the "Merry Christmas ornaments " for extra sparkle, $1.25 for 10 from Walmart last year. The Silver Tree was also from Walmart 4-5 years ago.

Buffet Set-up
Another view

I added a lot of my old red and silver ornaments into my apothecary jars and capped it off with gittered snowflake ornaments. I also filled 3 of my cake stands with ornaments. The mirror that used to be behind the  lamps (check out my previous post on Halloween ) is now serving as a tray where all the cake stands are. The birds are part of my white porcelain collection. The candy tree jar is from Crate and Barrel bought at a garage sale years ago. Currently I filled it with fake snow. The white fluffy trees are also from Crate and Barrel 3 years ago. "Celebrate" appetizer plates were from Kohls last year.

Shelving upgrade

Just like during Halloween, I just changed the Knick-kancks on display on these mirrored shelves.

There you have it folks. Now all we need is a nice family dinner to really shake things up in this room. And since we will be somewhere else on Christmas eve, this room will be of more use to us this Thanksgiving!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!!!!!!
