I have always focused most of my decorating in the family room. That is partly why I chose the dining to share to today. That and the fact that the family room is sitting there half done. I'm using the excuse that I am waiting for Saturday so the kids can help finish it but really I have just been busy with other projects. In fact I had to sweep up sawdust in order to photograph the dining room.
I chose the dining room also because I love having a good excuse to set a pretty table. Living with boys means we don't do "fancy" very often. But it is good to do it every once in a while to brush up on the 'ole manners.
Last year I added this cute countdown to the chalkboard that I use to hide the TV in the family room and it was a little hard for the kids to reach so I moved it in here.
Our dining area is very small so I can't add a lot of decorations but that is alright since I like to keep things simple.
P.S. How cute is that snowflake candle holder on the table? I picked it up at Walmart of all places. I think if I decorate my new shelves next year I might used it for utensils like wooden spoons.
Thanks for stopping by! The next (and final) room on the tour belongs to the fabulous Kindred Vintage!
