Thanksgiving is just days away. Are you having family and/or friends over? Kevin and I will be spending the first half of the day at my brother and sister-in-law’s and then we will head to Kevin’s mom and dad’s. It should be a wonderful day!
Kevin and I have yet to host a holiday in our home; hopefully someday soon! In the mean time our beautiful china, crystal, and silverware are hiding in the cabinet….
Do you see another little peek of our new wainscoting here (I showed one pic last week)? Kevin finished putting it up today, but we still have to patch nail holes and paint, so we will have to wait for the final reveal. (I also have another slipcover to make for the head chairs, eek).
Even though we aren’t having family over I decided to take on the Dare to DIY challenge over at NewlyWoodards and Kate’s Table Scape Link Party at Centsational Girl, and set the table (well, kind of, I didn’t take out the silverware and napkins). It was actually kind of fun to look at our beautiful wedding gifts!
Here is what our dining room looked like earlier this evening:
And now here it is with a little bit of holiday sparkle:
I purchased a $3.99 package of gold snowflake ornaments at WalMart last week (actually for another project that I hope to make soon), and I thought it might look pretty to hang them from the chandelier. I just love how it turned out (I feel like the photos don’t do this justice, lol).
All I did was take varying lengths of thread and attach one snowflake to each side, then in hung them over the arms of the chandelier at different heights.
And for each place setting I set out our china and crystal with a touch of gold print ribbon.
Now all we need is some company and a delicious meal
Oh and maybe some wine!
