I wasn’t going to buy another Christmas tree. But like Midas, I was seduced by gold.
Namely this stunning white gold Christmas tree. Once I spied it, I couldn’t get it out of my mind. Good thing I had just the spot for it in our formal dining room.
But this year’s dining room decor, which could almost be called neutral, except for the pops of aqua and evergreen, might be my favorite.
I’m excited to share my dining room and Christmas table decorations with you as part of the Christmas Ideas Tour, hosted by Postcards from the Ridge.
Each day, we’re focusing on a different topic: mantels, Christmas tablescapes, craft projects, Christmas trees and recipes. That’s a lot of holiday inspiration! Settle in with a big cup of coffee and enjoy all the eye candy. You can visit all the participating bloggers at the end of this post.
Today is all about Christmas table decorations.
For my holiday table, I pulled out my wedding china and crystal, as well as some vintage glassware, table runner, and fun placemats and chargers.
I sorted through my bottlebrush tree collection to find ones to fit the color scheme. That stunning aqua tree with the glass ornaments is a new addition to the collection this year.
The color scheme of the room dictated the color scheme for these Christmas table decorations.
The neutral wall color has a golden cast, and the rug features a traditional pattern in aqua.
I added some pretty, glittery Christmas putz houses and glass dome Christmas ornaments at each place setting.
I’m hosting our extended family’s Christmas feast this year, and I’m going to have to make it clear that those part of my collection and not party favors!
My favorite part of Christmas decorating is layering on all the little details, even if it is time consuming. I think chairbacks and lampshades look naked without wreaths hanging from them!
I love to mix things up every Christmas to create new looks with my existing decor items. But these gold placecards from last year’s Christmas dinner table were too perfect not to reuse. (I’ll be sharing the tutorial and free printables for these soon.)
I’m usually not one for neutral color schemes, but I’m loving how calm and serene the dining room looks decorated in gold, creams and beige. I’ve been contemplating some colorful changes for this space in the new year, but I’m now appreciating its beauty in a new light.
It must be that Midas glow!
