Christmas Homes Tour Part 3

It only takes a little time to make your dining room festive since this is where everyone will be eating that wonderful Christmas dinner. This room houses my "fairy" collection. A fairy sits on the buffet with a gold ribbon tied around her slim neck. My fairy tree, which is made by Hallmark and given to me by my brother and sister, sits in the corner at the end of the buffet. Fairies also perch on top of the corner cabinet.

The Christmas tree sparkles in front of the window. A sleigh near the tree holds presents and a santa stands guard nearby. An old antique cabinet from our grandmother's home is decorated and lit with candles hanging from the side. Take an old object and give it a new life, like this Red Wing crock. Fill it with evergreen, pinecones, and apples for that extra holiday touch.
In the foreground a rabbit holds a candle on his little serving tray. Beaded trees, garland, and snowflakes decorate the fireplace hearth. This is another view of the same room. I love the warmth that candle light and white Christmas lights add to a room.

  1. I love the feeling of candle light too. It's so warm and homey. Your photos are getting me in the holiday spirit (which I desperately need right now). Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage
