It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Madison just went into shock because I actually decorated for Christmas — kind of! While there’s so much construction going on inside I tend not to want to pull out decorations and add to the chaos. I thought I could at least handle a Christmas tablescape.
Even though the dining room is not quite finished yet. I had hoped to get the crown molding and base trim installed before today but didn’t make it — and I’m ok with that.
I still have a few things to finish up by next Wednesday (which is the day I’ve decided I need to have all the tools and scraps out of the house) but I won’t get to the dining room moulding until after the Holidays so it is what it is. We found this cute silver Christmas tree at Target and used that as a starting off point.
I didn’t purchase or make anything new for my tablescape, I used what we already had; Christmas ornaments and decorations that I generally scatter around the library shelves or mantle.
I picked up these picture frame ornaments a few years ago but have never gotten around to finding any photos small enough to put in them. They make the perfect place cards. Madison just made up names since we only actually need three place settings!
Madison did manage to make herself a place setting at the table, so I guess she will be enjoying Christmas Dinner at the beautiful table and Wes and I will just be at the island in the kitchen. LOL
I am not really one for over the top and simplicity goes a long way when it comes to my tables (more room for Wes’ delicious cooking). I hope you enjoyed my awesome Christmas Tablescape and have confidence to throw one together for yourself!

Love it Sandra! Chartreuse and white are perfect here. (Makes me think of vintage ornaments… I guess the vintage-ish ornaments make me think of vintage ornaments too..) I love it all!!! Wes’s white chef’s hat will fit in nicely with this color scheme. You rock! and so does Madison. 🙂
Pauline you always make me laugh! I do love vintage-ishy things. LOL
I love your tablescape. So beautiful!
Ooooo love the chartreuse and white. No one will notice the lack of molding, because your table is so gorgeous!

Sandra it’s perfectly you and I love all the white against your light fixture. Truly fun to see a little different side of you and I think you 3 should sit at this table because it’s so fancy! Be sure to IG that too.
I’m so glad you said YES! Your table is fun and beautiful. Love the chartreuse – awesome job – I think you’ve earned a place at the table. 😉
Thanks for inviting me. It forced me to decorate SOMETHING! 🙂
I am wondering how tall type ceilings are? I love that treatment but wonder if it would work on 8 ft ceilings.
I love this and the colors as I’m a neutral-loving girl 😉 I’m looking forward to following your beautiful house transformation!
I love it! The colors & bling are festive yet not in my face. My favorite tablescape I’ve seen.
Thanks you so much!
