Hello friends! I’m back showing you more of Christmas in the dining room. Slowly, but surely, I’m getting the whole house decorated, and it feels good to have this room done. So come along and I’ll show you what I’ve done in here.
The table is all set with our Gardening Santa tablescape and the cupboard is filled with Christmas pretties. Most of the things that I’ve used to decorate it are things that we’ve had a long time or vintage items that I’ve found over the past few years at the auction that we attend regularly. Here’s a little closer view of the items on the shelves. I have started a collection of milk glass, and I’ve displayed some of it here. On the third shelf are vintage Santa cups. I was so excited to find 2 tiny ones that are the smallest ones that I’ve ever seen.
Here’s a little vintage deer that I picked up from the auction. When I say “picked up,” that literally what I mean. Oftentimes items are unwanted and left behind and I come along and snatch them up. My sister-in-law Jean is real good at finding these little treasurers, too.
The corner cabinet and the server are decorated with a mix of mostly old but a few new things. On top of the corner cabinet is an old Santa that I’ve had for about 20 years. He’s mixed in with our collection of old jugs and stoneware.
Everything on the server is a few years old, and if you’ve been following our blog for a while, you’ve probably already seen all of this. But one of my tricks is to move things around and display it in a different way each year.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing our Christmas decorations in the dining room. Today I put the final touches on our kitchen today and I’ll be showing it soon. And this weekend we’ll be hosting a giveaway that may take care of one of your gifts this year. So stay tuned!
