Since we flooded during Hurricane Harvey this August, (and decorating the dining room for Christmas is not an option this year) I decided to post pictures of my Blue Christmas Dining Room from last year. It still makes me smile to see all the different shades of blue, and of course my crazy love affair with white feathers. This room is one of my all-time favorites…. it’s light and airy, but packs in a whole lotta punch. If you want to see what it looked like before we flooded Click here- Blue and White Fall Dining Room .
The white feather tree I bought from Michael’s (i think) about 5 years ago, and it moves from room to room each year. But it ALWAYS comes out-LOL!!! The tree lights up and makes the feathers look like angel wings at night-swoon!!
The white candle sticks are from Round Top, TX Antique Show. The glass votive that sits on top of each one makes a perfect resting spot for the ornaments so they don’t roll off. The urn is from Home Goods.
I made the white feather wreath from a couple of feather boas on a wire frame. Easy to weave them into the wire frame. I painted the J & Y letters gold, and attached fabric to a wooden backing I made to go inside the frames. The frames I found at an antique store that I painted silver. The frames are very heavy, so they are on small nails.
Of course, what is Christmas without a little leopard or cheetah ribbon/fabric??? It adds just a little personality and tones down all of the blue and gold. The stockings for our Christmas mantel have leopard on them also….I’ll post those next year 🙂
I know it is hard to see (lighting was not the best on these from last year- obviously) but the walls are gray here. If you look at my blue FALL dining room post, they are blue. I spent a year painting all of the rooms downstairs in our house gray, and I was beginning to feel like I was living in “a cloudy kind of day” mood…..and I NEED some color!!! So, there was a little change. Live out loud- Live in color…..right??!!
These picks I found at Michael’s about 5 years ago too. I love how the darker teal and navy really makes the turquoise and white pop…..and I can’t decorate for Christmas without some bling.
Have a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!!
Love & Hugs 🙂
