Baubles, Silver, Ticking and More

The dining room decor for Christmas is a little different from the traditional colors through the rest of the house, but I wanted the table setting to blend with the colors in the room. I'm not hosting this year, but like to do a table setting just for fun.



Leftover ornaments, from going to a much smaller tree, ended up in this wired bowl sitting on a silver tray and it all sits on a vintage grain sack used as a runner.




I've had the two white deer for years and they are starting to show some wear.

Bought the plates at HomeGoods last year. Love the winter scene.

I found these pale green ticking napkins on sale at Pottery Barn and had to have the silver rings, too.





I do have family visiting again at Christmas so who knows maybe we will eat in here, too.
Oh, probably not since three of them are under the age of four. It's safer in the breakfast room.

  6. Kim, your dining room is just beautiful. I had to just sit and stare at this today. Love the colors you've used. It seems that most of us are really drawn to softer colors these days. You've done it well. :)

  9. This is lovely. So vintage and refined at the same time. Where did you get the chargers? I looked for some before Thanksgiving and couldn't find what I had in mind. Yours are fabulous.

  18. Truly, truly beautiful setting! It's actually quite serene. I like how you "gathered" the centerpiece by using a runner in the middle of the table. It really makes it all look quite collected. Your china cabinet is so pretty. I love the finish on it! Very nicely done, Kim! I hope you and your family enjoy the holidays no matter where you might celebrate...but I agree with not having the little ones in this fabulously-appointed room! :-)

  37. I'm totally into the deer theme this year and have them in my dining room. Although they may be a few years old, I think they only get better with age. Lovely, lovely table. I think a lot of us had extra ornaments going to a smaller tree this year.
