I'm finally finished with Christmas Bling 2011!
Today I'm featuring the dining room.
If you've been reading my blog you may remember my post about
"red and white inspiration" for decorating this year.
I made the window valance with a tablecloth I made several years ago.
No sewing! I just folded it over the tension rod. Simple!
The table runner was made by cutting some fabric with pinking shears.
Again, not sewing!
Red napkins were folded to make a place mat for the plates and scalloped dishes.
The little red snowflakes are from Target's $1.00 section.
and the real, mini candy canes from Target.
Santa cream & sugar set . . .
My sister, Mary, gave me the lantern about 27 years ago.
The milk glass cake stand belonged to my grandma Ruby.
Most of the ornaments are unbreakable and
safe for them to play with.
My plans for today include a lot of REST!
I'm pooped! I'm going to drink another cup of coffee,
read the paper and enjoy the fragrance of the red velvet cake candle
Kari and Bobby gave me last night.
Enjoy your Friday!

I love that you found simple ways to bring out the color combination, and still keep things simple.
