I think a charming Christmas vignette in the dining room, bedrooms, kitchen and even the bathrooms create warmth in the home. For the 7th Day of Christmas, I thought I would share the dining room table. And I shared this room last year during the 12 Days of Christmas.

It’s Day 7 and we are sharing Holiday Decor Ideas!
It is one of my favorite rooms in the house. Yes I know I don’t use it much but since I have such an open floor plan I see it every day. And it makes me happy to see a beautifully set table.
When I change out the setting I clear the table off for a fresh start. Then I pull out the Christmas placemats and napkins. I feel like it is seeing an old friend since I only use them once a year. So many of my things are items I have had. I may make or buy something new but I build on what I have.
My style is traditional eclectic so I stick to the traditional Christmas colors. I pulled this bright red ceramic tray out that looks like a crate. That is the basis of the vignette.
Using the candle I made from landscape edging it is placed in the tray with pretty Christmasy picks placed around it.
I got out the chargers I made for last year’s 12 Days of Christmas.
The plaid placemats and holly napkins tie in the red and green. It gives the table a farmhouse feel.
Once again I pulled out the Currier and Ives dishes. See what I mean about seeing old friends? The crystal adds a pretty sparkle. And don’t you just love the reindeer napkin rings?
The final thing I did was use the metal Christmas trees on the table by the crate. And they bring in the red and green also.
Every year I reuse what I have and add new stuff here and there. Things are never in the same place so each year it looks new to me. It can be so inexpensive and easy to have a charming Christmas vignette in the dining room or any other room. When you reuse what you have in a different way each year it feels new. Is that what you do?
