Christmas in The Kitchen

It's not the biggest room in our house but it might be the most festive....maybe. 

Part two of my holiday home tour is HERE. Today it's all about the dining room table and let me tell y'all, it's darn cute. Layered with tons of textures, colors, and heights, this dining room table is one for Better Homes & Garden magazine. Okay, I'm biased but whatever, judge for yourself....

There's few places in our home that we spend more time at than our dining room table. I've said it a million times but we really do eat every single meal throughout the week at the table together. It's our time to turn the tv off, put down our phones, and recap our days for each other. It's a special time for us making this a special place. I had high standards and lots of ideas for this area and couldn't wait to mix our tablescape up! 

It's no secret that I started decorating for Christmas on Halloween morning but did y'all know I got up early and went to a million places scooping up holiday decor? It's true, I did. Stop number one was my favorite store when looking for holiday decor: Hobby Lobby. With them (ALREADY) running 50% off on all Christmas decor, how could I say no? I did manage to get out without selling my spleen but still left with stuff cause duh, Hobby Lobby. That stop resulted in the $5 wreath you see at the bottom of my layered centerpiece below.

On top of the wreath is a metal vignette I picked up from Home Goods this time last year for around $10 and a small piece of a lace tablecloth I used for a DIY project awhile back. This created the perfect little base for some of my favorite Rae Dunn pieces that were previously stored on shelving above our coffee bar. Alongside all the RD is one of my favorite items I've ever thrifted....the wire milk bottle stand. (Notice the cookies canister too? I'm lookin at you Santa. Your welcome)

SPOON, FORK, KNIFE was a set of RD that Eddie K found for me and it's honestly one of my favorite pieces we have. They usually come attached to a little platter but can easily be removed with hot water. I pulled them off and have been displaying them separately, like shown in the photos, with some gold utensils from Target. While the ones I purchased are no longer available, I've linked a similar set HERE. Yeah, that's right, they are plastic. No shame. 

To fill the spaces and add more texture/layers, I threw in some ripped up book pages and some tiny red/green/gold ornaments we never use on our tree. I let the smaller objects organically spill out of the vignette and onto the table a bit to create a more natural look. 

To complete the tablescape, I  used some of my new Rae Dunn Christmas mugs to stack on top of some smaller oval plates. Each place setting consists of the follow: oval plate, Christmas mug, leather scrap, ripped book page. Again, LAYERS. IT'S ALL ABOUT LAYERING. 

Anyone else already decorating for the holidays? Share your photos with me on social media. Can't wait to see how y'all style your dining tables!
