Since the dining room is still very unfinished, I decided I didn't want to spend any extra money decorating the space (especially since we are going to start making over this room during Christmas break!). For the table, I used a plate from my wedding china & added a hurricane vase (I'm blanking right now, but I think that's what it's called!) & filled it in with a tree topper that I got from Dollar Tree last year. Then I filled it with some mini gold ornaments. Around the hurricane, I added some pinecones & a few pieces of artificial pine. I also added some glass candle holders with silver ball ornaments.
On the buffet, I added some greenery decorated with ball ornaments & berries & I placed another Dollar Tree tree topper inside an apothecary jar.
In the morning room, I placed $3 wreaths from Wal-Mart on the windows with suction cups & tied a bow around them. I really like the way they look, but this picture does not do them justice! (Hmm...maybe I should have taken pictures earlier in the day, when the sun wasn't streaming through the windows!)
On the table, I placed candles & a tree on three silver trays (from Dollar Tree) & added assorted sizes of green, gold, & silver ornaments. Pretty simple to do, but I think it looks very elegant!
