I Will Honour Christmas In My Heart

I will honour Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!

~ Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

WELCOME TO MY CHRISTMAS BLOG!!

WELCOME TO MY CHRISTMAS BLOG!!

Christmas is my favorite Holiday and my favorite time of year!

I go all out decorating our small townhouse for all Holidays but especially Christmas!

Every room in our home has a different Christmas Theme and Color Scheme!!

I prove that you do not have to live in a large home to have several Trees, over 20 in all shapes and sizes!!

The majority of my Christmas decorations are placed in the same spot every year and I know that this is not what most Decorator's care for but it is like seeing old friends again when I decorate each year for Christmas.......

I do try to add a few new things and change up things a bit but for the most part, these decorations are part of my Christmas traditions and I will not change them until I can no longer decorate like I do......

This blog is dedicated to All Things Christmas!!

Christmas in the Dining Room, Part 1, 2018

 Welcome to my Christmas Blog, A Debbie-Dabble Christmas!!
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!!!

Our oldest son Joe won a whole turkey at work when they held a drawing entering those who donated to a local Food Drive......
I was a bit intimidated because it has been over 20 years since I made a whole turkey as I usually just make a turkey breast.......

It turned out well even though craving it became a challenge!!

As Joe said it was the only piece of dead meat that seemed to fight back!!!

I was going to show you the upstairs Sitting Room decorated for Christmas in this post but truth be known, until I am done decorating, everything that comes down from the attic is stored in that room until it can go back up to the attic......

Since I really can not even walk in that room right now, I decided to show you the Dining Room decorated for Christmas instead which I will be doing in 2 posts......

So today, I will be sharing Part 1 of the Dining Room.........

Let's start over here by the buffet...
Over in the corner by the Kitchen.....
A Christmas swag that I made hangs over a Home Interiors picture.....
Underneath the picture on a shelf sits a Lenox Santa......
On the floor in the corner......
2 Santa's dressed in pink, both bought at Church Flea Markets.....
Hanging on the handles of the drawers of the buffet are gold stockings with pink angel wings attached to them......
 I have decorated the Dining Room in pink, white and gold.......
Last year, I bought this Santa wall hanging at Michael's......
I decorated the buffet like this for a few years now and this year, I did things a bit differently......
Other years, I decorated the 2 gold Trees on the buffet with small pink ball ornaments and white snowflakes.......
This year, I just decorated them with white snowflakes.......
They are topped with a pink star and also have 2 birds on each Tree.......
Beneath the Tree on the left side......
I have used 2 sets of white and gold figurines that were bought at Sam's Club many years ago to decorate the buffet......
On top of a mirrored gold cake stand......
Is a Tree from one of the sets......
The gold reindeer were bought at Walmart several years ago.....
Above the buffet on a gold shelf......
Sits a white and gold Santa......
In the center of the buffet is Santa and his sleigh.......
2 gold glittered bottle brush trees are on each side of the sleigh.....
You can see that I scattered gold and pink ornaments throughout the display......
Over on the right side of the buffet......
Is the other gold Tree.......
 These Trees are 2 of 3 decorated Trees in the Dining Room......

Underneath this Tree.......
 Other years, I used 2 clear houses that I called Ice Houses in the display on the buffet as you can see in the photo below......
This year, in a future post, you will see them in the Living Room......

Next to the buffet.......
Is a small curio.......

Above the curio......
A white angel sits on a mirrored gold shelf.....
Underneath the shelf on top of the curio......
A large pink mercury glass votive filled with some florals.......
A white and gold house that I bought many years ago at Big Lot's......
3 Department 56 Snow Babies .......

A crystal vase filled with more florals......
On the floor in front of the curio......
I added a few ornaments and berries inside the curio to give it a bit of a Christmas touch......
2 pink angels flank the curio......
Next to the curio is the hutch........
On top of the hutch......
An angel dressed in green hangs above......
To the left......
A few Christmas figurines......
I bought this pink church a few years ago in Target for 75% off , just $5.00........
Over to the right.....
On the window that divides the Dining Room from the Living Room.......
A wreath that I made......
The Season's Greetings sign was bought at Micheal's last year.....
And that completes Part 1 of my tour of the Dining Room all decked out for Christmas.....

In my next post, I will be sharing Part 2 of the Dining Room......
   So I hope you will come by and visit  again!!

  3. LOL Debbie, loved Joe's comment about it's the only piece of dead meat that fights back. I would never even attempt to cook a whole turkey. A chicken is enough of a challenge for me :D I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving dear lady and as always your Christmas trees take my breath away
