Eat, Drink & Be Merry (Our Dining Room This Christmas)

I'm so excited to be part of Just A Girl's 'Christmas Room Tour' today, and share more of our home all decked out for the holidays. Chris is one of my very favorite people I've met through blogging...her perfect mix of genuine goodness and sharp sarcasm hooked me early on, and I've been her Number One fan ever since.

And a big ole 'Hey Ya'll' to those of you visiting from The Nester! Myquillin always knocks it out of the park, and her decor is effortlessly stunning. If you're new to Hi Sugarplum, I'll give you the 5-second bio...I'm a Texas mom in love with design, fashion, travel and sarcasm, and this year we moved into what I hope pray think is our forever home. The place where our kids will pose for prom pictures, and bring our grandchildren over for sleepovers. #holdme

So far we've renovated the Kitchen and Backyard, and thanks to the {One Room Challenge}, done a complete makeover on the Master Bedroom and Living Room. You can see the in-progress rooms, and our previous home, on the Home Tour tab.

Today is actually a double-whammy...not only is it a big dose of Christmas, but also the first look at the Dining Room. Enough gabbing, let's roll that beautiful bean Christmas footage.

You may recall our previous Dining Room was quite a bit more colorful...I'm not exactly sure which direction we'll go with this one, so we kept the changes so far, new floors and paint (Sherwin Williams 'Dorian Gray'), neutral. The furnishings are neutral, as well, so I had complete freedom to go wherever I wanted with the Christmas decor...and this year I chose a more traditional route, with a dose of glam thrown in.

The Dining Room is right next to the front door, and setting a holiday table was the easiest way to make the room festive. I've never actually set a table as part of my decor before, but I'm kind of digging it!

The only other update we've made to this room is the light fixture...that's a budget DIY I'll share eventually soon.

I usually reach for Command strips and hooks, but found these suction cup hooks and they work like a charm on glass and mirror!

I love having the tree in this spot by the front door...we can enjoy it from virtually every room downstairs, and it makes a really warm welcome. See more of our tree and sources in my Oh Christmas Tree post.

I fell so hard for these reindeer that I've got them scattered all over the house, including our tree topper! Obviously they were a hit since they sold out so quickly!

And that's our Dining Room all decked out for Christmas...it's going to be hard taking those wreaths and reindeer down for the New Year...I think I need to find a way to work them into year-round decor! Next stop on the tour is the lovely Myra, so refill your cocoa and get ready for more inspiration!

  3. Cassie, I really like how you framed in the lamps with the mirrors instead of sticking the mirrors behind the lamps. Now you've got me thinking about how I place such things in my own home. The Christmas decor is beautiful, but I can't get over those mirrors!

    1. Thanks Julia! That actually happened accidentally! I had a big piece of art between them, but took it down to arrange some stuff, and realized I preferred that look! You can probably still see the nails in the wall! :)

  4. I am really interested in the light fixture. I have priced them but just do not wish to spend the kind of money they want for the ones I have looked at.

  5. Don't think I'm weird, but I look forward to your posts everyday!! I so love your sense of style. We are renting right now. We moved from WI to TN last Dec ( will be a year on Dec 22). We didn't want to buy until we knew the area better, and signed a 2 year lease. Anyway, I love to decorate. And, although I can decorate here, I can't change anything!! I'm so looking forward to getting my own home again. I always wanted a really large home. We have 5 children. So we got one...and I don't like it. 4200 sq feet that I can't keep up with! Several unused, or barely used rooms. So, we will be " downsizing" when we buy!!!

  9. I am in LOVE with your entry! We have been looking for our "forever" house for over a year and my huge item I want is a great entry where I can put an amazing tree that can be enjoyed from many rooms! I have tried to explain this to my DH and realtor but now I can show them a picture!

    Also, I wanted to tell you that I love your blog and look forward to it everyday. I am in my mid 30's and just had my first child and expecting my second and I love your sense of style and how you blend really cute pieces in that still seem young but appropriate in your home and your clothes!

    Merry Christmas!
