It All Starts in the Dining Room

I'm not sure why, but I always start my seasonal decor on the Dining Room Table. My choice for the centerpiece and tablerunner seem to sort of set the stage for the rest of the house. This year I fell in love with a burlap fabric my sweet friend Judy was working with in her Etsy Shop, 20 North Ora. She was creating tablerunners and I just had to have one.



I had Judy looking all over town trying to find more fabric to fit my table. I've threatened to paint this table more times than I can count, but my interim fix is to just cover up as much of the big brown wood top as possible. Anyway, Judy came through and I love how it turned out. I just put it on top of another raw burlap fabric piece and then gave it a stripe of red Tartan. (gotta have some plaid)



The ribbon isn't attached,
 and I would like to find a wider one, 
but for now I think it adds a little fun!



Last year I wanted Preserved Boxwood wreaths and topiaries, but never found them. So for something different this year I ordered 3 of the Preserved Boxwood Cones in cement vases to go inside the newer smaller windowbox. You can find them HERE.



Judy also sent along a sweet pillow, just right for my end arm chair.

Thank you so much, Judy!





For the chandy, I left the twiggy garland and removed the Fall leaves,
 replacing them with faux red Winterberries,
and then tied on a little Tartan ribbon.





Decorating this year is proving to be a work in progress.
I started with the basics the week before Thanksgiving, 
and I'm adding a little more each day.
Who knows, I might even have it done before Christmas!
(more coming in the Dining Room)

Joining in with these great parties:

p.s. Santa brought my white lanterns and they're 
HUGE
Now I just have to find a place to put them!
