~~~ Christmas Dining Room Tour!!!~~~

 Good Monday morning! It is rainy and damp here but that won't take away my Christmas spirit!!! Yesterday I went on a bus trip to NYC with girlfriends to see the show a Radio City Music Hall and it was fabulous. It drizzled all day there too but we had a GREAT day. Today I am taking you around the dining room. I have not done alot in there this year since our daughter is hosting Christmas. However I may add some things soon since my sister and son are coming from Fl. and I am hosting Christmas eve. So things could change at any moment. As soon as I get my SHOPPING done:):) This is the view as you walk in the front door and look to the right. I have a lighted swag to put over the china closet...
 I placed sparkly gold tipped greens on the window sills with the candles.
 On my TINY server I have my Sparkly Santas, 2 gold trees and some greens. I also swagged some beaded garlands.

 I just love aything sparkly a the holidays.

 I LOOOVE the face on this guy!!!!

 I made my centerpiece several years ago. This is the EASIEST piece to make, here are the details: The tree is premade. So, I placed floral foam into my container and trimmed it so it stuck up above the rim of the container about and inch or so. Then I put a thin dowel into the tree and inserted that down into the foam. Next I used 3 sparkly gold poinsettias and pushed the stems into the foam. Finally, fill in the rest with sparkly floral picks and a few pieces of greens. TA DA, you're done!!!!!
 I love these poinsettias.
 I had the gold urn for quite awhile. To store the piece I just pull the tree out of the center and wrap it with tissue, then store it and the container in a box.
 I found this runner this year at Tuesday Morning. I had been searching for a 90 inch runner for awhile and the colors in this one are PERFECT!!!!! When I walked into the store it literally was the first thing I saw! My deer came from Kirklands several years ago.
 2 vntage bottle brush trees are a new addition this year.
 So there you have it. My "almost done" dining room:) I don't know where the time goes, and I sure don't know how the heck I did all this when I was working:):)  Now I have to get my shopping DONE!!! Have a beautiful week my friends and please pray for all those affected by the tragedy in Connecticut. XO, Pinky

Love your Santa collection on the sideboard! Your swags on the window sill look so festive...especially when lit at night!!! Looks to me as if you're ready to begin the celebrations!!!
