Welcome friends! Whether you’ve made your way over from Lynne at My Family Thyme or you’re a regular here, I’m excited to be sharing my traditional vintage farmhouse Christmas dining room tour with you today!

This post is a part of the Celebrate Christmas blog hop, hosted by Leen from Sand Dollar Lane.

Since this is our first Christmas in our new home, I was starting from scratch on this space. I had to pick a color scheme, figure out where to hang things on the walls — we were looking pretty empty in there!

Color Scheme

As soon as we added the mirror above the console, I knew I wanted to make flat black a large part of the design. At first I focused on green, white, and black, but quickly added red because I’m a sucker for a pop of color. It really did need that extra “oomph.” The stripes on the linen napkins added the perfect amount of red without overwhelming the scene.

My one major color pop came in the form of the Winter Wonderland wall art. I have loved to hang this in our home over the years, but it was just too small for the wall I wanted to add it to. I wound up using a red frame I had painted for last year’s Valentine’s Day mantle to create a little frame inception and extend the height of my beloved sign.


I kept my tree neutral so it didn’t fight with the dramatic tablescape. Then I went to Target and somehow wound up with a “whoops tree” aka I blacked out and somehow wound up with a second tree to put in the corner of the room. It happens to the best of us! Since both trees are flocked, I needed some true green in the mix which is where the small wreaths come into play. I filled the middle of each with sparkly ornaments for now, but these wreaths are incredibly versatile making them easy to reuse in the future with any color of the rainbow!

Vintage Elements

There are quite a few vintage pieces in this room. I’ve been collecting old books for over a decade and I remember where each was sourced from! I stacked several in red and green on both the console and centerpiece, added a gorgeous nutcracker I snagged at the thrift shop for $4 as well as a .99 cent bell, and The plates are vintage as well from a local shop called Tattered Tulip. Although not vintage, the pinecone at the center of the table was a treasure my son brought home from the park a couple years ago and has kept in his safe keeping box ever since.

    Such a beautiful tablescape! It’s so artfully arranged and I love that you included your son’s treasured pinecone!

  • Reply Paula@SweetPea December 6, 2019 at 3:11 pm

    Your tablescape is beautiful. I really like the wood in the center of the table and how you decorated it with red and green books, your son’s pinecone, and a bell. Flanked by the candles, it looks amazing. Your winter wonderland wall art is a great piece and I love how you added the second red frame around it.

The website’s layout is clean and user-friendly, making it effortless to navigate and find the information I need. What impressed me the most was the level of detail provided in each review – from game selection to payment methods and security measures, every aspect was thoroughly covered. The site also offers valuable insights into bonuses and promotions, helping users make informed decisions about which casinos to try. I found the registration process to be quick and straightforward, allowing me to get started with minimal hassle.
