~All Through the House Tour~ Dining Room

Welcome to the
All Through the House Christmas Tour
All Through the House Button
This Christmas Blog Hop is hosted by
We also have a special co-host...
Mr. Christmas Mouse
We are very excited to share all of the great blogs and beautiful
Christmas Rooms throughout this week, so please come back often
as each day will feature a different room.
Well, you know the rest of the story.
Welcome to our homes...

I'm keeping things pretty simple here this year for Christmas by adding natural elements. Besides buying a few poinsettas, a couple wreaths, garlands and fresh flowers, I've used items I already own.      
I had to snap these photos very quickly one day when the sun decided to shine and it's a good thing I did because it's been so dark, blustery and wet ever since!
I don't think it takes much to get a festive look and many of the items I use in my home this time of year come from nature and are found on our own property.  

Fresh cedar greens are cut from a tree we have growing along the house and pinecones are always in abundance.  Both look great mixed in with ironstone in my vintage corner cupboard or among candles as a centerpiece.

A few blue items added in with all the wood and white furnishings gives this room a light and airy feeling which is a look I'm striving for these days.  

 I'm hoping to share more photos of the rest of my home, but need that sun to come back out in order to take them......wish me luck!

Please take a moment to visit all the other lovely ladies below.
