Have you decorated your Christmas dining room yet?
If not, I have some creative ideas for you.
Five to be exact.
Some of the ideas you may have thought of.
But two of them? Two of them I think I kind of invented this year. I’ve never used them before and I wanted to share.
I’m here for all the ideas this Christmas.
We have an extra person in our family this year and I’m over the moon and want this to be the best Christmas this dining room has ever seen.
Here are five creative ideas for decorating a Christmas dining room.
1. Create an easy Christmas centerpiece
When I say easy?
This is as easy as it gets.
Start by gathering leftover faux greenery. All the branches don’t have to be the same. Use picks of pine branches and juniper or holly.
Next, you want height. Place a couple of cake stands at the center of the table, adding texture with smaller boughs on each side. Add a Christmas home decor piece like these marble trees. Then scatter ornaments and add faux candles to add sparkle to the table.
2. Add battery-operated candles to your candlesticks
This is one of the ideas that I am so excited about. I’ve always wanted to use candle sticks on the table, but they melt and get wax all over the place.
I have seriously had to peel the wax off my table before.
I discovered these super realistic-looking candles that are battery-operated. They have two different settings and the flame flickers and looks so real. There are several settings that are dimmer and brighter and they have a waxy exterior.
Perfect for the Christmas table and they are sale today you can see them here.
3. Add a bow to the top of the tree
Can I tell you how much I love this bow?
Normally I make my own bow, but I saw this tree topper on Amazon and knew it would be perfect (and easier than making my own). I’ve made bows for the top of the tree before, but this ribbon and the thickness and quality of it are next-level.
It has really long ribbons that you can wind throughout the tree.
You can see the tree topper here.
4. Add mini plates to the tree
This is my brillantest of brillant ideas.
I was searching for blue ornaments and I found some affordable options, but the tree needed more. And I have SO many blue and white plates.
Here’s how I added them to the tree:
- I flipped the plate over
- Then I created a loop with white duck tape
- Next, I stuck the loop to the back of the plate
- Then I found a branch without lights and looped the branch through the loop of white duck tape
- Lastly, I wrapped the branch around the outside of the loop to securely hold the plate in place
Easy, simple and FREE blue and white ornaments for the tree.
5. Add a wreath to a mirror
I love a wreath on a mirror.
Especially if it’s an ornament wreath. The mirror doubles the sparkles and add depth to the room.
I got this wreath last year, but I found this one that’s super similar.
I hung this wreath up with a super strong command hook.
