The Christmas Dinning Room

Hello everyone!
Today I'd like to share what I've done in the Dinning Room for Christmas.  We won't be hosting this year so I kept it simple and tried to make it mix with the adjoining Living Room.
For the table centerpiece I kept things simple with a silver platter filled with candles and things that sparkle.


For me, the star of the show is this vintage Christmas tablecloth.
I found it at the Junk Bonanza in September and have been waiting patiently to use it ever since.

Truth be told I'm not 100% positive this sort of thing fits into the style I'd like to go but one look at the gorgeous images and I was hooked.  I swear I remember my Grandmother having something similar when I was little so it makes me think of her.  Plus the kids think it's cool so that makes it a keeper.

Behind the table on the shelf I have arranged my collection of vintage and new deer. 
(I've talked about this in a previous post, here, if you want to take a look)

The cabin I painted and distressed then added the wreath and deer.

Newly purchased deer figures and bottle brush trees mix with . . .

My collection of vintage deer.

Somehow they always make me smile.

I love the way they pop out against all the white.

To the side of the table I've displayed a mix of old and new decorations on the old desk.

A tiny tree with white snowflakes . . .

Sits underneath the book page wreath I made two years ago which I still love and look forward to using during the winter months.

Next to the tree is a cute sparkling white deer which has stolen my heart.

And of course I had to thrown in a glitter house of some kind.  This one is actually an ornament, which fits nicely inside the small cake stand.

And finally, in the corner the piano bench received a pop of red with some pillows and a dish towel used as a runner.  I added two lantern for fun since I can't get enough of candlelight this time of year.

The dish towel is a couple years old but it has a vintage vibe which I love.  Aren't the snowman couple adorable?

Hope you enjoyed the tour,
