Christmas Dining Room Decor

Christmas Dining Room Decor

Each year I get so excited about setting up my Christmas dining room decor. I love a good table setting, and there is something so magical about Christmas. Plus, this season is all about the added sparkle and I am all for it. If you have been here a while, you already know my top tip for setting an intimate dining table is adding candles. You’ll create instant drama in the best sort of way. We are keeping things smaller this year, but no less special. Any reason to bring out the fine dining pieces is a good excuse for me!

Lastly, I always have my Nutcrackers out and ready to greet guests at our entry way. This has been a tradition for years, and you can see the same area a few years back by going here. It is something I love, and the girls have fun when they all come out. This space is a great setting for each season, and I would highly encourage you to find a spot like this in your home. A smaller space that is easy to decorate and can be done to greet your company. It’s an immediate talking point and ice breaker if you are having people over. I just wish I could leave the garland up year round…Shop the rest of my Christmas home decor picks here.

    I love your style. So often I see designs that are trendy and too contemporary. Your style is a beautiful use of traditional elements with a fresh approach to decor that doesn’t leave a room too stuffy and formal.

      Thank you so much, that was my goal! Transitional, timeless pieces but not stuffy 😉
