Christmas Decor in the Dining Room & Tree Giveaway

Today, I'm sharing Christmas Decor in the Dining Room AND we have an awesome Christmas Tree Giveaway from Bellacor. You could win the same tree you'll see below in my dining room!

I've said this a few times, but when we looked at this home initially...one of my first happy thoughts about it included Christmas trees in the front windows. My mom always set her tree up in the front living room window and I'm thrilled to be able to do that, too. There's actually something fun to me about having a pretty tree in the dining room, too...eating by the glow of loads of twinkle lights.

My tree in here is a gorgeous Vickerman Green, Crystal, Balsam Christmas Tree from Bellacor. Check it out below and enter to win one for yourself!


I decorated this tree differently than any other one I've ever done. I used floral poinsettias, ribbon, snowflakes, and just a few actual ornaments here and there. I'm really happy with how this came together.

The tree has 750 clear lights that just bounce all around the room!


I tried not to go too overboard on the rest of the room...I wanted the tree to stand out.

We finally hung up my late uncle's large mirror on one end of the room.
My mom loves a large mirror in the dining room and that has grown on me. 
When lots of people are gathered around the table, it's fun to see the reflection of that in the mirror.


I love that it reflects all the way into the piano room across the hall.

We recently replaced the crazy brass and crystal shandy, too.
It feels nice bringing this space out of the 1970s...for the most part. 
I mean, we're still rocking those popcorn ceilings, y'all.


I used a couple of my antique candlesticks in the centerpiece, too.

I'm using the Spode Christmas Tree Dinnerware that my mom has given me over the years.
My crystal glasses are from my late uncle. Honestly, most of my dining room "stuff" is from him. He was an incredible host at this table and I'm honored to *try* to follow in his footsteps.

Be sure to enter the awesome giveaway below!

  3. That room looks very inviting! I wish we had already decorated our home. We are waiting until Friday to break out the tree. The red buffet table is GORGEOUS and I love that teal chalkboard.

  4. It's so pretty. I love the red. When we build I want to build a large dining room like this where we have more room for family dinners and holidays. Now people are spilling everywhere.
