The Dining Room is dressed for Christmas.

It was a happy day when we found the dining room mirror.  A few years ago Mr. Heart and I were at an estate sale when I spied a mirror that would be perfect in our dining room.  Things were a bit pricy that day.  As we made our way over to get a closer look, I was preparing myself that it may be out of my reach,  but was so happy to find it being offered for a steal...SQUEAL! 

To dress it up for Christmas I added two swags of garland adorned with green leaves and gold fruit.  One swag is added on each side...

A shimmery gold ribbon bow with lots of embellishments is then added to the top  and the ribbon is tucked into the garland...

One of my favorite trees is the little one on the dining room buffet.  I call it our Little Tweet Tree because it is so small and decorated with tiny bird ornaments.

Each year my mom gives us girls Waterford ornaments.  The smaller ornaments are pefect for the small Tweet Tree...

On the buffet are deer that sit on each side of the little tree, all of which sits atop gold shimmery runners ...

A simple centerpiece includes a mirror base, crystal candlesticks and a gold urn with red flower arrangement.  A dove is added for a little extra touch.  There are two of these florals, one is on the dining room table and the other...

...finds a home on the empire chest...

That's the dining room dressed for Christmas.  Can you believe there are only 12 more days to go!

Thanks so much for visiting, I love your sweet comments and can't wait to read yours!


  1. Your dining room is gorgeous. I love your mirror, what a fabulous find. Your reindeer are also just stunning. Such a beautiful vignette. Hugs, Marty

  2. Cindy, your home is so elegant! I love how you embellished the mirror. That little tree with the birds is beautiful too.

  3. Morning Cindy,
    wow, your dining room looks so lovely and festive.
    Love those pics with the mirror reflecting your tree in the other room, looks just like a magazine picture. Beautiful. The whole room is beautiful,
    you are a very talented decorator.

    We tried to put a magnolia garland in our dining room light fixture and it looked great but made the light looks so dim I didn't like that part.
    so will have to think of another option I guess. lol

    You have a great week ahead enjoying the Christmas Season sweetie,
    Love and Blessings, Nellie

That is one of the most beautiful pieces of furniture I have ever seen!!! It's magnificent! I want it!!!! :-) Beautiful decor all around, and your Tweet Tree is sweet as sugar.
