Dining Room Pictures As Promised


I’m back with the dining room pictures as promised.  This week I’m totally swamped with decorating my house, cleaning and Christmas shopping.  Hopefully I’ll be back with a couple more designs before Christmas.  I’m posting several pictures of my dining room taken at different angles.


The two centerpieces are at both ends of the table.


It’s hard to see due to how dark this photo is; look at the two end chairs with arm rests, the giftcard holders are hanging on those chairs.


The wall hanging is attached to the poinsettia floral arrangement which I placed in the center of the dining room table.


As you can see, my dining room rug is sapphire, ruby, emerald and gold.  The table arrangements match perfectly.


I took photos of each of the place settings.  Green is my favorite color, I’m so in love with this emerald green setting.  Can you see the reflection of the gorgeous green silk on the table knife?  The reds and greens in the floral arrangement behind the place setting are so beautiful! The dishes are Fitz & Floyd Winter Holiday dishes that I purchased many years ago when the boys were toddlers.  I’ve placed the dinnerware on clear Christmas red plate chargers. 


I wanted to include this picture to show you the beautiful ceiling in my dining room.  The recessed ceiling is in the shape of a long octagon with a large ornate medallion above the Alabaster chandelier.  You can see a bit of the octagon in the picture.  I believe the ceiling height is 12 feet. 


Last of all, a close up of the gift card holder handing from a chair.  This one is for Mom.  Since taking these pictures, my mother-in-law has already claimed her’s, it’s hanging on her Christmas tree.

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit.  I truly appreciate you and all the wonderful comments you leave on my blog.  You keep me inspired!

    Absolutely Beautiful!!! A Holiday table that needs no food– so much eye candy already there!!!

    What a wonderful setting. You don’t have to serve dinner. I could sit in your dinning room for hours and just absorbe all the beauty. I love the windows and the gorgeous window treatments and that gorgeous coffered ( I don’t know how to spell it but know what it is :)….) ceiling. I bet all your guests would love to take a part of your table decoration as a momento.
    Absolutely stunning, Jerri.

    Whew! Finished at last – and almost 2 weeks BEFORE Christmas! You are truly amazing Jerri – and your table/dining room are stunning. Are you as creative in the kitchen as you are with your other creative pursuits? A wonderfully cooked Christmas dinner will add the finishing touch and make everything picture perfect!
