Christmas in the Dining Room (And a Christmas Gift DIY)


Today I'm sharing some pictures of our dining room, simply decorated for Christmas. I wanted to keep a light and airy feel in this room, keeping decorations to a minimum. 

I am looking forward to adding some whimsy and wonder to our Christmas Eve table, when we'll be hosting family for dinner. Until then, just a few touches to add a little merry to this room...

Poinsettias have never been my favorite. 
But this one, a pale vintage shade, is winning me over!

I think mason jar stemware would make a wonderful Christmas gift, and it's so easy to make! Find the DIY here.

Glittery bulbs and simple, beautiful candlelight in a 
humble mason jar for a farmhouse feel...

All is calm... for now! Looking forward to making more memories at this table soon...

 Hope you are enjoying the season! Have a blessed Sunday...

  8. Yes Julie, this is what the season of Christmas is or should all be about.
    Your simple beauty is perfect, not one thing here is fighting for attention.
    I love the natural greenery you used for your seasonal decor, and everything is in its pale place down to the center piece.

    Really always enjoy my visits to your Farm of rural beauty with easy elegance.

    See you soon.
