…la la la la!

I’m back!  Last time I shared our Christmas decor in the living room and foyer.  Today, let’s venture into the dining room and kitchen! :)

The red and gold theme continues on the dining table with my red and gold swirl placemats and runner. 


The centerpiece is layered with greenery, glittered holly leaves, berries and sparkling ornaments.  Red tapers and gold votives light the spread.


My Lenox Holiday china is paired with red chargers and red napkins. 


More greenery and pinecones are encircling the chandelier and gold snowflakes hang beneath.


And over on the mirror is my iced wreath.  I love it against the silvery mirror!


In the corner is a lovely red poinsettia in a silver pot.  I had glittered the flowers, but it looks like Bandit knocked most of it off. :)


The opposite corner is sporting another potted poinsettia.  My Christmas cat plates are hanging above.


I also brought out the silver tiered server (and even polished it!) and filled it with ornaments in sparkling red and green.


And of course next to the flatware cabinet is the doorway to the living room which is adorned with my evergreen corner swag.  I saw this idea on Pinterest and decided to replicate it in here for my dinner guests to enjoy. :)


Basically I wired two pieces of tree clippings into an L-shape, then I added red glitter branches, ornaments and a bow with floral wire.  Then I just hung it up on a nail and reinforced it with some pushpins.  :) 


Now onto the kitchen!  My new white cabinets are so easy to decorate.  They go with everything, even red and green!  :)


The colored ornaments are in the window along with my DIY yarn ball wreath from last year.  I still love it!  Colorful lights are strung above and red and green kitchen accents are sprinkled on the countertops.




My mini hot chocolate station is on hand with cocoa mix, mugs, spoons and candy canes!  The tray is lined with wrapping paper for a quick seasonal update!


Peppermint candles are glowing on the stove…


and the little Christmas cats and bear join the ribbon candy tree on the kitchen shelf.


My kitchen table is set with my Pier 1 peppermint stripe plates and the cupcake candles.


For the centerpiece I created a Christmas “snowglobe” with my new mercury glass cloche that I got back at Halloween.  It’s from World Market.  Inside is a little gingerbread house and a couple of bottle brush trees.  The “snow” is actually sea salt! :)


This is my favorite thing this year! It’s so cute!


That hot chocolate station looks so inviting, I think I’ll go grab a mug and some whipped cream!  Be back soon for the final stop on the tour—the Christmas mantel!  Stay tuned!
