~Christmas in the Dining Room~

I just want to thank Vanessa and Heather over At The Picket Fence for throwing this week long Christmas Bloggers Block Party. It's a blast! 
By now I'm sure you can tell I love decorating with a lot of red for Christmas, and the dining room is no exception.  Let's go take a look....

 I added some greenery to the chandelier and tied red gingham bows to the end of them.

 A fruit and berry twig wreath on the mirror that I had for years.

 A pretty ornament under a cloche for safe keeping.
 I love the way this room looks at night with the soft glow from this little tree.


I've had these dishes for about 15yrs and these cute little sparkley figurines I bought a few years ago. You'll notice I have quit a few of them scattered around the house. 

 A simple centerpiece.


              Thanks for taking the tour with me!
