Holly Jolly Dining Room

The holiday tour of our house continues in the dining room. (Check out our mudroom and mantel if you missed them!)

We have a major red theme going on in the rest of the house but I also really like blue/silver for Christmas.  Lucky for me, blue/silver works well in our formal dining room.


I wish there was a way to make Christmas lights look awesome during the day.  That will be how I make my millions.  Don’t steal my idea.  I have to work today so I can’t apply for my patent.

I’m not going to lie.  This room is mainly for looks.  It’s the first room you see as you walk in the front door.  We’re not formal people.  Some day I’ll make it useful.  Until then, it’s a good place for 1 of our 2 trees…


And our hutch….


I’d fire my photographer for taking crooked pictures…but then I’d have to take them myself.


That’s our dining room all decked out in blue and silver!

Do you have a formal dining room? Do you use it?  What’s your holiday color scheme this year?
