I love decorating my dining room in icy silver colors. I added touches to my chandelier by draping sparkly, silver garland over it. I usually add layers of greenery, ribbons, ornaments, and crystals, but this year I kept it simple.
Last year I came up with a creative option for garland and it became the focal point of my tree. This is actually recycled package stuffing that I spray-painted silver. This year I delegated the tree to my daughter and she made it even more spectacular! She used the evergreen picks that I usually use on my chandelier and instead stuffed the tree with them. I love what she did with it! It’s so rich and full looking. Not bad for a tree we got from Target on an after-Christmas sale.
I love this sleigh that my mother gave me. It’s a treasure. I usually fill it with my antique ornaments. I love the way they look spilling over.
I added white tulle to the top of my buffet. I originally had it without but it looked too dark. I wanted it to feel lighter and more snowy. I took a small piece of white tulle that I bought from Jo-Anne’s for a few dollars and spread it out under the current display. I love the way it looks now. It works with the feel of the rest of the room.
Even the corners are full of poinsettias. I don’t want any space to be empty! Merry Christmas! -Meredith
