Decorating the Dining Room for Christmas

My Christmas decorating this year is on the minimalist side.  Some greens cut from the yard, candy canes with blue wool bows and some shells are what I came up with this year.  I had grand plans, but in the end simple won.  It usually does.

I draped some woven place mats over the backs of the white chairs to add some color.

 Somehow blue kept coming up in the color mix.  It is not a traditional Christmas color.  It just sort of happened and I went with it.

I’m calling it Americana meets the seaside …

and a bright green cupboard.

 It’s eclectic.

    If I do any decorating at all this year it will definitely be a minilimist style. I like your idea of fresh greens, and your green cupboard is still one of my all time favorites!

    Beautiful. Just beautiful. Less is certainly more, and I love this. I have not done much decorating at all, but have been thinking simple, simple, simple for days. You just can’t go wrong. I love the candy cane tree. Brava!
