Traditional Christmas Tablescape

Hello friends. I hope your week is going well so far. I’m excited to be joining my friends again for the Seasons of Home, Christmas Tablescape edition hosted by my friend Kristen.
You know something?, I have very talented friends who I LOVE but make me feel like I suck. LOL.   Well THEY don’t do it , I do it to myself.
But as you might know, I’ve been experimenting with darker traditional Christmas colors and even though I LOVE neutrals, I needed a change. It feels like I’ve been doing white and neutrals for way too long and those who know me, can attest that I tend to get bored very quickly. I’m even a little surprised that I’ve lasted this long without change.
Having said that, when I see all the gorgeous neutral Christmas colors and the beautiful tablescapes from my talented friends, it makes me second guess my decision and it become a crazy battle in my head. Ha.

But here goes anyway. As you have probably already noticed, I painted this wall with a dark gray. It photographs bluer than it actually is. The color is ‘Midnight’ and it looks nice but  I’m  not too sure it’s going to stay this way. So don’t be too surprised when you see this space next time. ;)

I do love how the gold and the red look against a dark wall.  christmas dining room craftberry bush_-14
And you might remember this handsome guy from THIS post. You can find this beautiful stocking holder HERE. It’s super affordable  :)  christmas dining room craftberry bush_-15

I had these mini battery operated string lights and I think they add such a festive touch to each tablesetting.  I also LOVE these napkins that I got at Homesense. I couldn’t find the exact ones but I love THESE as well.  christmas dining room craftberry bush_-18

I used a cute little satin ribbon to tie the cutlery … christmas dining room craftberry bush_-26 christmas dining room craftberry bush_-28 christmas dining room craftberry bush_-30

There’s so much sparkle from the trees which makes the entire space feel so joyful; in my opinion of course.

I will be changing the chandelier either back to my gold one or a more modern one. I just find this one a little more suitable of the summer time.  christmas dining room craftberry bush_-41 christmas dining room craftberry bush_-45 christmas dining room craftberry bush_-46 christmas dining room craftberry bush_-47 christmas dining room craftberry bush_-48
I’m also unsure about the table. If you follow me, than you might know that this is an outdoor table. So I might change it back to my usual dining table.  christmas dining room craftberry bush_-49
Hubby likes it here but I think he might just be saying that ’cause he doesn’t want to move it again. HA (poor guy)

You can obviously hide the battery pack, which is set on a timer, under the greenery but I hid it inside the little pot. shhh.  christmas dining room craftberry bush_-51 christmas dining room craftberry bush_-52

    I LOVE the rich colors. I can appreciate neutrals, but it does get old, and at Christmas I am one of the few that likes to see the more traditional colors.
    Stunning – I wouldn’t change a thing

    Your tablescape and rooms are gorgeous. I enjoy seeing rooms decorated with beautiful saturated color. You have given me many wonderful ideas for decorating my den and table. Love it all. Thanks for sharing,

    Lucy, stop second guessing yourself. All your décor posts are beautiful! Cannot imagine an all white Christmas would look as good as your darker toned plaids with your new dark walls. Perfect! PS I think your indoor dining table would complement your theme and color scheme.

    PS Can you provide a source for your round mirror? Maybe you have done this in the past, but perhaps I missed it. It appears rose gold in the photos. Maybe it’s the filter or maybe you painted it?

    Absolutely LOVE everything – it’s the type of Christmas table that really appeals to me. Would you mind sharing the source for the red lidded soup bowls? Thought those would be so perfect for evening meals in the winter when things feel a bit bleak.

    Never think your posts are anything but GREAT – you never EVER cease to inspire me!!!

    Hugs from the Rockies,
    Pippa

    Oh how I feel your pain Lucy! I doubt my choices all the time, but let me assure you, this table is STUNNING! I had actually been second guessing my neutrals this year after seeing YOUR gorgeous reds in your kitchen last week, haha! I love the traditional colors and yours are stunning!

    Happy Holidays to you!
