Holiday Dining Room





This year I had to make sure that the Dining Room didn't upstage my "Greenacres" inspired Living room tree, so I decked my halls down with neutral colors of cream, soft golds and shimmering silver accents. 
 I mean come on now, it's not like a paper mache reindeer sprayed in brilliant silver, glass balls scattered with some mercury glass votives could compete anyways
but if you were to throw all that on top of a burlap runner it does make a simple but elegant centerpiece, don't you think?
And it's not like my first time doing something other than "what's for dinner" on my chalkboard even comes close to the bling on the tree, although I am just loving my 'Oh Holy Night'.

And the smell of a fresh rosemary tree in the room couldn't smell nearly as good as the artificial tree unless your nose is blocked because it smells just divine.
The only thing missing now is dinner on the table, and sadly as I mentioned here I don't cook,  but .........
I think Cracker Barrel delivers.

    Wishing that your sweet boy gets well soon and in time to enjoy all the whimsy created by Santa Mum.

    Take Care,

  20. How lovely, Laura!! You hit just the right note and both rooms are GORGEOUS! Jealous of your clean and orderly house... after 4 days in NY and all the boys/men home alone, my house is like a bomb went off. Thank goodness tomorrow is my last day of school and I can regain some order around here!
