Christmas in our Dining Room ~2011

It is looking like Christmas at our home and today I am sharing our dining room.

We have a simple country look all year in our dining room. For Christmas decor I added greenery and natural elements, shiny and glass ornaments and candleholders, ribbons and burlap.

Our dining room is visible from the front entry and open to the living room so I kept the colours and textures of our holiday decor in these areas consistent: whites, creams, browns and tans, silver and shades of blue, mixing natural elements like greenery, wood and pinecones with shiny and sparkly.

I adore my white dishes and keep this black pine Mennonite cabinet (and our kitchen cupboard and buffet and hutch) filled with many pieces. Crocheted and vintage linens are also things I love to collect, so little bits show up in most of my photos.

The little star hanging on the knob is made of battenburg textile and I added some pinecones and aromatic cedar to the cabinet.

I shared more photos and details of the dining table vignette here. 

The ornaments in the window were shared here. We already had all of the items used in our dining room Christmas decor, except for a $4 package of the little blue glass ornaments on the table and the greenery. 

We woke up to beautiful sunshine today so I was able to take lots of photos that I will be sharing in the upcoming week. Tonight after our youngest son's hockey game, we plan to walk our dog to my sister and bil's. Most of our neighbours have their homes and yards decorated and it is so pretty at night! Thanks for stopping by, and if you leave a comment I will be sure to visit! 

I'm sharing our dining room at these great parties...

and Christmas Blogger Block Party ~Holiday Dining at No Minimalist Here


  1. The atmosphere is amazing :-) I enjoy your photos :)

  2. So pretty and festive...I love your cabinet!

  3. How beautiful. It all looks so charming and homey. I wish I could visit in person and look up close. Wonderful!!

  4. I just love your white dishes in your black cabinet! I'm a huge lover of black and white combos. I have that in my kitchen. It's just so classic. I like how you styled it with simple touches of greenery, pinecones and some shimmery silve balls too. Just my style! You did a great job.

  5. The cedar you added is my favorite part I think. I was meaning to go out and cut some from our giant hedge to use somewhere this year, but I think I may have just filled up every available space with decorations already. I might try anyway, after seeing your dining room.

  6. It looks so pretty Elizabeth! Your decorating is so beautiful and the love you have for your home really shines through! The vignette on your dining table is especially beautiful! Angie xo

  7. You collection of white dishes is so fresh and wintery! I wish I had white dishes. Hopefully, I'm on the nice list this year! andrea@townandprairie

  9. Hello from your neighbor at No Minimalist Here. I especially love your white dishes in the hutch with the greenery. And your centerpiece is beautiful. Have a wonderful holiday!
