Christmas Table Decor ~2011

Our mantel is still a work in progress so I am happy to be able to share four Christmas table tops in our home.

 Dining Room

For Christmas decorating this year in our dining room and living room I am using whites, creams, browns and tans, silver and shades of blue, mixing natural elements with shiny and sparkly. These colours, along with black, are the colours we have throughout our home all year.

I shared more photos and details of this arrangement here and the rest of our dining room here.


 Living Room

We are still searching for an affordable rustic coffee table for our living room so I am using this little white wood bench as a stand in. I simply added fresh greens and silver and cream mini glass balls to the brown wood berry wreath and scented candle on the square white platter. The lanterns have the most lovely wavy glass.

Looking at these photos I am now going to go back and add a strip of burlap to the bench to give it more texture.

I think the colours and simple arrangement suit our more rustic living room.

My full living room Christmas post can be found here.


Our farmhouse table in the kitchen has a mercury glass footed bowl etched with snowflakes. It is simply filled with strings of red wooden berries that I placed on an old silver tray with strings of cream and white beads, fresh princess pine and aromatic cedar, and mini glass balls in silver and cream.

The pair of votive holders are mercury glass with a lovely etched pattern on the glass and I added red wood berries and sugar cookie votives. I shared Christmas in our kitchen, including the display shelves and buffet here.

I will be adding our family room ottoman arrangement when I finish in there and then editing this post.

Thanks for stopping by and I would love if you could take a moment and leave a comment to let me know you were here.

I'm sharing this with and looking forward to seeing all the other link ups in the following Holiday link parties...
