Places In The Home For The Holidays: Dining Room Decorating Ideas

I like dining room decorating ideas that deliver year round, classic, and wow factor beauty.  I believe these home decor accents and accessories will do exactly that.  The magnificent mix and match movement continues to gather decorative momentum, and why not?  It’s the sure cure for boring interiors. Ever wonder why a table setting set with mismatched flatware makes such a visual impression?  Unique and unconventional styling, different styles and finishes paired together, and furniture placement never fails to catch the eye.

The ribbons, pears and pomegranates design of this early 19th Century Aubusson panel from art1 epitomize the grace of the French motif.

You can’t go wrong with gold-rimmed white dinner plates from Dollar Tree.  Neutral, classic, elegant, and affordable- now that’s striking entertaining gold.

To keep the emphasis on elegant affordability, may I suggest the Hampton Forge Sophia 20 piece flatware set from Target.

I view charger plates as the picture frame of the total place setting picture.

I like to use key decorative foundation pieces in neutral colors. It justifies the initial investment for quality pieces, and makes it easier to use those pieces from holiday to holiday.

Serving pieces are the jewelry of holiday dining tables, buffets, and sideboards. Add magnolia leaves and a fresh green garland and let the impressive holiday dining season begin.

One of the best parts of holiday decorating is decking out the dining room in the colors and decor of the season.

Love your style!

  1. I can’t believe it but we are only 3 weeks away from Christmas. How time flies.

    It’s my turn to host a Christmas party this year. I’m looking for a white / gold theme for my decor. I really love some of the ideas suggested here. The lampshade with gold leg looks fabulous!

  2. We’re on the fast track to Christmas for sure, Desiree. White and gold is so classic and elegant anytime, but especially at the Holidays. Thanks so much for “visiting” and let me know how the party goes! Happy Holidays.
