Green & Gold Christmas Dining Room

Green and Gold Christmas Dining Room and Holiday home hop

Merry Christmas everyone!  Are you looking for some Christmas decorating inspiration?  I am back with another holiday home blog hop but this one is a little different because rather than getting a full house tour today we are each sharing one room.  So scroll down to the bottom to find some inspiration for a room you are struggling to decorate or check them all out!  Thanks so much to Tiffany @ The House Down the Lane for getting us all together.  The room I am sharing today is our green and gold Christmas dining room.  With the craziness of hosting Thanksgiving I never got to really decorate it for our Christmas home tour and between you and me I am pretty sure I was still washing dishes:).

Although, I love simple decorating there is still a small part of me that wants to go crazy and decorate the decorations at Christmas more so than any other time of year.  I begged Jason to let me buy a tree for this room but he kept responding to me with the “P” word, priorities:).

To be fair to him half of our house is still in the throngs of remodeling, a broken toilet here, a missing door there, a gutted sons bedroom and hallway and at least 100 other things.  With no budget to decorate this room I was forced to take matters into my own hands and dig out a mini tree from our yard:).

I do love the simplicity of it and I can replant the baby tree in a nicer spot this spring.  The other item I have really been wanting to add to the dining room of our farmhouse is a crystal chandelier.  Sigh:).  To try and disguise our brass one I trimmed a lot of my evergreens and brought them in.

I have no idea if I added the greens the right way or not as this was my first attempt at trying this.  I kinda stuffed the evergreens through the arms and cut off what didn’t look right:).  I absolutely love it!!!  I also hung a few gold glass ornaments on the chandelier.  I bought them for 75% off at target last year.

Part of what makes this room so pretty in my opinion is the greens and if you don’t have any of your own just ask a friend.  It took me about an hour set the table and bring in the greens.

I added some evergreens to the fireplace mantel as well. I placed some gold pine cones I had sprayed a few years ago along with an oil lamp and gold tree I found at Home Goods last year.  There is a magnolia wreath from Restoration Hardware and the chalkboard sign was $3 at the Target Dollar spot:).

Unfortunately our fireplace doesn’t really work well.  All it does is smoke up the room when a fire is lit but I love the warm glow of candles in it.

I did buy one thing new this year.  My “Come thou long expected Jesus” print is from Lindsay letters and I think it is my new favorite thing in the dining room.  I found the large frame at Home Goods and I am pretty sure this will be hanging up forever!  I love her stuff and I hope to have one of her beautiful canvases one day.

I love to set a beautiful table.  There is something so intimate about sharing a meal with friends and family especially at Christmas.

More evergreens and gold pinecones and ornaments run down the middle of my favorite farm table that Jason refinished for me.  I couldn’t cover it up this year with a pretty tablecloth and that makes one less thing to iron:).

Green and Gold Christmas Dining Room and Holiday home hopThank you so much for taking the time to see my Green and Gold Christmas Dining Room. It is hard to believe how far the room has come since we moved in 2 years ago.  Here is what the room looked like soon after we moved in.  Although, if there isn’t a pretty table set there is still loads of laundry:)

  1. Your dining room is gorgeous! I think the paint color, it looks l ike grey, makes the wood paneling pop and look so vibrant. Very calming color. Your dining room is so inviting, full of special little details. Tara I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I’m also going to take some time off because we need to share some time with the most important people in our lives and this is a full time job.

    1. Mary, I appreciate your sweet comments about my dining room so much! Our dining room color is called Manor Brown (it’s a dark grey brown ) and it is a calming color:). I totally agree with you that blogging is a full time job:). I hope you have a restful time off and have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  2. It’s so beautiful , Tara.
    I’m crazy over the little tree that you dug up! Now I really want to do that next year!
    Great job with the greens on your light fixture. I tried that and it didn’t look nearly as pretty!

  3. Imagining you digging up a little tree to put in your dining room made me giggle a little. I think it looks great in your room and fits in perfectly with the rest of decorations.

  4. This room looks so nice!! I absolutely love your space! It is exactly my taste! I’m in awe of that china cupboard… it is stunning! It was so fun doing this hop… I’m so glad you were a part of it!! I’m getting so many new ideas for next year already! haha! xo!!

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my Christmas dining room Danielle! It was so fun doing the hop with you:). Have a great week and happy new year, Tara
