Christmas Dining Room In Cream and White

This year I used a neutral palette of cream and white to decorate the dining room. I am still enjoying the makeover that I did this spring and felt that the Christmas decorations should be quiet and let the reds and dark blues stay at center stage.

The Small Green Tree On The Right Is Unadorned

A Battenberg Lace Christmas Tree Skirt Adds A
Layer Of Texture To The Simple Cream Tablecloth

A Faux Magnolia Wreath Grounds The Centerpiece
The Silver Tinsel Tree In The Background Is Also Undecorated

Gold Magnolia Blossoms and Tiny Vintage
Mercury Glass Ornaments Decorate The Sides

This Bowl is A Vintage Chandelier Shade Turned Upside Down - The Gold Painted Trim Has Acquired A Perfect Green Patina

Filled With Bright Vintage Ornaments,
This Provides The Only Pop Of Christmas Color In The Room

What Can You Do With Chairs That Your Husband
Loves and  Doesn’t Want Them To Be Painted???

Dress Them Up Like Ballerinas Of Course!

I Love The Mix Of Shimmery White Berries
and Simple Ripped White Sheeting 

I Kept The Chandelier Very Low Key This Year

Three Vintage Angels Fit Perfectly Across The Bottom

This Little Italian Beauty Was A Lucky Find At Good Will

Thanks for joining me in my Christmas dining room.


  1. It's all looking good Rhonda!!! Looks like you have been a lucky gal at Goodwill.


  2. Beautiful, Rhonda! Your lovely ruffled tablecloth sets the stage for me! Love the way you dressed up the chairs. I have a hubby that will put his foot down on certain things not being painted, too. I don't put up an argument because he's really very good to let me do all the things I do with everything else {and he has to live with it, too!}.

  3. Oh Rhonda, everything is so beautiful. I haven't had time to put anything up yet, and we will be having our first Christmas party at our house not this Sunday but the next Sunday.... guess I better get on the ball.
