We’ll be spending a lot of time lingering over good food and wine and even better conversation and laughs in my Christmas dining room so I really focused on the little details.

I had a little help from a little elf named Sushi.

She’s been chewing on ornaments, knocking over trees, slobbering on gifts and causing mischief wherever she goes …

but she’s redeeming herself by showing you how we decked out our dining room for Christmas.

What an adorable Boston Terrier in a little Christmas outfit

This is where the fun and frivolity happens.

  1. I love the copper accents in the milk glass!! Who’d a thunk it? You, of course, always bringing something new to the table. Love the industrial cupboard all set for Christmas!!

  2. This post shows how effectively just few additions can create a holiday mood when you don’t feel like going all out with decorating. We all have those years, and just by pulling the colors of the season from small things can make a big impact.

    Ok, a pet with a Christmas outfit helps too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Beautiful, Kelly! Love your traditional red holiday dรฉcor and cardinal tree. That squirrel is darling. I want those vintage light bulbs. I’ve seen jewelry artist making the cutest necklaces and ornaments with them.
    Happy Holidays ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Kelly, your little details are BIG touches to bring a smile to my soul! The squirrel with the bulb, brilliant…the copper ornaments overflowing joy in the cabinet, the runner…(No wonder all the red jute was gone when I was at Joann Fabrics looking to make bows!). Love your hanging lanterns over the dining table….mmmm sublime!
    Always look forward to see what you do next! Bravo!

  5. OH my Kelly, your Christmas home is perfect, so cozy, simple and awesome, love, love it all. You really did up your home incredibly Wonderfully. Will be studying all your vignettes to get more ideas. Poor little Sushi, she’s so darned adorable, want to hug and smooch her. Does she like affection? Our dog loves it. I’ll be hanging laundry and he’ll nudge my leg to give him a kiss. He’s such a lover and so sweet. Big lug.
    Love the wagon scene also, so cute. I have a cute little beat up wagon like yours but right now it’s got hay for chickens in it. Guess some hay in living room wouldn’t hurt anything, do you think? House is mess from working on making holiday items for upcoming craft show on 13th. IF I get it all done I’ll be amazed. Today had to lie down for few minutes in nice quiet dark bedroom to rest. Yeah I’m getting old and very tired.
    Hope you are enjoying the season, decorating, etc. Happy week
