Holiday Dining Room with Holly Topiaries

Hello Friends, Wow what a weekend. Filled with family and so much fun and so many blessings. I hope you all had an equally Happy Christmas. I'm playing "Christmas Catch-up" this week, trying to get in a last couple of Christmas posts for my video diary. I like to do this for myself even if it's on the back side of Christmas. I try to mix it up each year so I won't get décor lazy. A Home Tour each year gives me a visual of what I've done for Christmas décor. Hopefully, you might enjoy it too. 

Many years ago, pre blogging, I made these conical moss and holly topiaries. When I found the Wolff Pottery tall vases in 2012 at Pottery Barn, I changed out the clay pots and kept them in the vases. They make a much more visual statement than plain painted clay pots. Throughout the years they've been used on the mantel, a sofa table, and the dining room table. They've been versatile and that's what has made them a go-to for Christmas decorating.


Over the years I've used various ribbon accents to coordinate with other décor from gold polka dots on cream, to leopard print, gold brocade, Burberry Plaid and Tartan Plaid. I'm sure I've missed something along the way. Tartan Stewart "Christmas" plaid is my all-time favorite. This year I used a French-y burlap ruffled tablerunner layered over a glitter Christmas Plaid tablecloth folded in half.

The PB urn is sitting on top of my Antique Farmhouse column base riser with a garland of red berries.

My French Burlap Sheep framed grain sack from last year, anchors the miscellaneous pieces on the buffet. Demi-johns, boxwood topiaries, demi-john bottles and glitter Christmas trees mix with my white tureen on a silver tray. 

More of my gold gilt pears mix in with the winter fruit garland around the tureen.

My family washstand has a similar French Country feel with a cherub hanging from my moss "O" on the antique mirror. The Dining Room Christmas decor keeps a familiar traditional feel with a French Country vibe from year to year.

My little pottery lamb tureen from Portugal is nested in another Christmas traditional fruit garland.
