Christmas Table and Dining Room Decorations

Today I want to share with you my Christmas table and dining room decorations. 

Here is the YouTube video showing you everything in detail. 

I wanted something simple, pretty, and red for my dining room table.

This is the only table in our home so I don't like to place a lot of decorations on the table. 

I like to decorate the center of the table so we don't have to move anything when we want to sit down and use the table. 

Here are my supplies:
Red cake stand (World Market)
Set of 3 Flameless candles (Hobby Lobby)
10 inch wreath form (Hobby Lobby)
Gilt Eyelash Yarn in Star Ruby (Hobby Lobby)
Christmas Placemat (Hobby Lobby)
Christmas Candle Rings (2) (Hobby Lobby)

First I wrapped the wreath form using the yarn. 

You just glue a piece down and start wrapping the yarn around the wreath until it is as full and fluffy that you want it to be. 

I placed this at the base of the cake stand. 

Next I cut the candle rings in half so that they would fit around the top of the cake stand. 

I used Tim Holtz scissors but you could use wire cutters to cut the rings.  

I then put the candles in the center of the cake stand and positioned the candle rings around the candles.

I love this so much. Simple, pretty, and functional. 

Did I mention these candles have a remote control? Yes, they do and I love that feature. 

I can turn them on before we eat and turn them off when we are done and I don't have to pick up and move each candle. These are item #693895 at Hobby Lobby. 

Here is a full picture of my dining room.

I don't have a lot of room to decorate in my dining room, so I always put something on the table, in each corner, and sometimes around the light fixture. 

I just placed some Christmas garland around the base of the light fixture and used some red picks from Hobby Lobby.

I also hung these clear balls from the garland. I put fake snow and curled scrapbook paper in the balls. 

Every season I like to change out these candles and candle rings. 

These below were purchased at Hobby Lobby several years ago. 

I also like to change out the flower picks in this vase. I leave the sticks for texture. 

Thank you so much for looking. 

I hope you are inspired to create something pretty for your home.
