Christmas is almost here and we are so excited to celebrate with family and friends! Today we have put together a holiday tablescape to give you inspiration if you are hosting Christmas, a dinner party, or any type of holiday festivity! We want to say a big thank you for reading and if you hopped on over from Maison de Cinq, welcome, so happy to have you here! Isn't Sheila's home so beautiful and inspiring?!
Today we are setting the table in Kim's formal dinning room! Our formal dining room and living room is really one big open space with high ceilings separated by white pillars and an arch. We always put the tall Christmas tree in the living room right next to the dining room, which is nice because you can see it from both rooms! This year we got a ten foot flocked artificial tree from King of Christmas and we love it!!
I've recently been working on my dining room to give it a mini make over! I bought new wing chairs to use as captains chairs from At Home Stores and I also painted my sideboard a few months ago which you can see HERE. If you follow me on Instagram @kimkhazel you might have seen in my insta stories how I painted my dining chairs. I will have to blog about that soon ;) Next on the list for painting is the massive china hutch! I might have to hire that one out! HA!
Behind our house is one of the last working hobby farm in the southwest suburbs. We have a thick line of trees on our back lot line but in the winter when the trees are bare of their leaves we can see the snowy fields behind them and it is such a beautiful view!
This year I've set the table using the same color scheme as the living room, white and gold! A bit different from last year when I used my blue and white Currier and Ives vintage collection! You can see last years dining table HERE.
I used a white and gold print table cloth I bought last year at Homegoods then layered a new white fur runner down the center, followed by candlesticks, gold reindeer and gold mini ornaments!
Every year at Christmas we break out this Silent Night sheet music that my mother, Lacey's grandmother, made into art, forty some years ago! She had it hanging above the old upright piano in our home growing up. I would play "Silent Night" on my flute accompanied by my sister on the piano, so this piece is loaded with sentimental value!
I've had this artificial candle holder arrangement for years but I each year I change the ribbon and embellishments for a new look. We are all about reusing, and recycling!
This year for the place settings I used these vintage Pfaltzgraff dishes Lacey found at a thrift store along with vintage linen napkins trimmed with lace I found at an antique store. The rose gold napkin rings are from the Target One spot, topped with glittery ornaments from the dollar store! These can be given to each guest as a take home party favor. I also placed a votive candle at each place setting for extra glow at night!
The buffet got dressed up with a fur pompom runner. I'll let you in on a secret, its actually a scarf I've had for years! Sometimes you just need to look around your home and think outside the box!
A recent cookie exchange party yielded a nice assortment of cookies minus hours and hours of baking! YAY!
I decided to use these white feather wreaths on the back of the chairs for a festive touch. If you saw our "Adding Glam to Christmas Decor" you might remember I had them on the living room mirrors. Well I did a little switch-a-roo and put some spruce springs there instead! Things tend to get moved often around here, Ha ;)
As always I've mixed in a few of my vintage finds with some new pieces. I think it adds depth and character to the look. We like to call it Vintage Glam!
