Christmas Home Tour - The Dining Room

Onto the dining room in my Christmas Home Tour. I keep the table simple because we eat in here quite often and that makes for many changes of the table cloth with a family of six. 

Here the table was set for a dinner that evening for my hubby's birthday.

I have trees in most rooms in the house and in here I have a snowman themed tree that sits atop my child's dry sink.

Rolling pins in red and green set in crocks makes for simple Christmas decor.

This year we put our village atop the china cabinet. It will always go here. I love it up high and the glow of the little village.

My centerpiece is a simple prim tree set in an old wood bowl. Thrifted candle sticks and a braided runner keep things simple but festive. Hope you enjoyed the dining room.

You can see the rest of my home tour here.


  1. I love your home Elaine. But then, you already know that. I wish I were able to come on Saturday to share the day with you ladies. Everything looks so festive! I love the village up high!!!

  2. I love the dry sink with the tree in it. Have a blessed and Merry Christmas Elaine.

  3. Simply warm and beautiful! I really love the village on top of the china cabinet. Lovely place to display it but keep it out of the way.

  4. Hi Elaine! Your home is so charming and beautiful at Christmas time. I agree with Kathleen, I love your hutch top. Hope you're doing well.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  5. So pretty, Elaine. I love your village scene on top of the hutch especially. xo

  6. I love the Christmas village high! I think I will do that next year ago! I love the little trees in each room, too. Very simple, very beautiful!

  7. EVERYTHING is just beautiful. I love that you have trees in every room. I had multiple trees in our former two story home, but once you put extra guests for Christmas into our little cottage, more than one tree is one too many.

    I am hoping to get in to visit my sister for Christmas and make a stop at Country General Store. I don't need anything, but it is so fun to visit.

  8. It looks so warm and inviting. Oh the charm of Christmas!

  9. All your Christmas trees are lovely!! Thank you for showing us your home!! Happy birthday to your husband!

  10. Catching up with your blog and your beautiful home tour, Elaine! I love the way you've decorated your warm and cozy home for the holidays.


  11. Elaine! Love all of it! I adore your dry sink. Wish i had room for one...


  12. We used to sell those Chicken lamps at our store. I loved them and wish I would have bought one.
