With Christmas rapidly approaching it’s time to get the dining room ready for some prime entertaining. While you may think that decorating the dining room is a huge task, it doesn’t have to be. Here’s a look at ways you can make the space look spectacular without exhausting yourself in the process.
Cheer Up Your Chairs
Simple ribbon tied to the back of dining room chairs is an easy way to create a festive look for the holidays. Once you’ve tied ribbon, attach something such as berries, a pinecone and some sprigs of evergreen to the bow. Fabric chair covers, whether patterned or a simple snowy white, are another wonderful way to add sophistication to the space.
Garlands and other forms of greenery are often associated with this time of year–so don’t forget to add some to your space. Whether it’s festive wreaths hung on windows, or sprigs of green draped over the chandelier, or even garland lining the doorway, make use of this popular and readily available accent. Of course, if space allows, an extra Christmas tree with a handmade skirt is always nice.
Deck Your Walls
Artwork on the walls can easily be changed out for the seasons and holidays. This Christmas, deck the walls in your dining room with unique framed art. Find things like vintage holiday postcards or wintry Norman Rockwall pictures online and put them in a colored frame. Another option would be to frame snowflake cutouts. Whether you choose to frame them plain, or make them sparkle first, this project is easy to do will make the room look very festive.
Focus on Fabric
Fabric plays an important part when it comes to our home’s decor. For the dining room, find fabrics that will dress up the table (or chairs) and windows in sophistication. Gone are the days of traditional red and green being the only choices out there, so be sure to find something that not only reflects the holiday, but your style as well. We have a wide variety of multi-purpose fabrics that will cover all your decorative needs.
You can get really creative with centerpieces and most, are pretty easy to make yourself. Holiday centerpieces can be created with seasonal fruit, candles, pinecones and sprigs of evergreen. You can also jazz up the table with holiday icons like Santa and the elves, Frosty the Snowman and even Rudolph and his friends.
