There are no formal spaces in our home anymore...now that we've knocked down every wall we possibly could. Yesterday, I shared pictures of our kitchen. Today, I will share what the rest of this level of our house looks like. This level of our house is lighter and brighter than our lower level family room.
First, I will begin with our dining area. We had some family over for dinner this week and I enjoyed setting the table for that. It was relaxed and casual. I think I enjoy small gatherings even more than the actual holiday where there is so much more pressure to get everything done...
I picked up the small melamine plates at Target. For under $3/plate, they dress up our everyday white plates for the holidays. I also wrapped a chocolate bar in some kraft paper as a place card.
I love these old drink recipe books I picked up at a used book sale. My mom enjoys bringing wine to my house dressed in holiday clothing. My wine bottles have quite a wardrobe :)
This green farmhouse hutch separates the dining space from the living space on this level. I have considered painting this hutch countless times, but every year at Christmas I am glad I haven't taken the paint brush to it...yet.
Our faux fireplace now has a tv over it. Very functional, but not fun to decorate :(
The red check "drapes" are actually tablecloths from Christmas Tree Shop. Each cost $5.99. An affordable way to add a Christmas-y touch.
Our Dept 56 Snow Village is in the front bow window. I cleared out the Lego people to take these pictures, but usually they "live" in the village all throughout the holiday season.
Thanks for stopping by!
