Easy Holiday Dining Room Decor

Holiday Dining Room Decor


I choose to go with easy holiday dining room decor. I really don’t want to spend days and days decorating my house. I don’t want to put every decoration I have tucked in the attic out every year. As a matter of fact, I’ve already decided that I am going to do a purge on that and only keep the decorations I love. Similar to what I’m doing all year long with the rest of my decor.

That said, here is the approach I take. I like to tuck my decorations here and there among my all year long decor. There are very few items that I pull from my tables and shelves. This year is not perfectly what I want to go but it is a process.

Bowl of Ornaments

A few ornaments tucked into a bowl adds a little festive shine to the centerpiece. Notice I even kept the mat that the bowl sits on all year round. It has a little gold in it and plays off of the ornaments.

Bark Candle

I purchased these candles on clearance around Thanksgiving but I intend to keep them in my decor all year round. Some sprigs of greenery, berries and flowers make them super easy for my holiday dining room.

Candle and Santa

A very cute holiday table runner on my buffet makes a great base for my holiday dining room. Candles and some other figurines, ornaments and houses are cute but not overpowering. They all just blend.

Candle in the snow

For my ongoing theme to use what I have, I used some epsom salt as a snow like base for my candles on the buffet.

Bakers Rack

My bakers rack allows for so many seasonal displays. Here it holds so many festive holiday ornaments that adds so much to my holiday dining room.


This candlestick was a find at my Goodwill store for only $1 each. (Teaser: I will be showing you a project with these in my next post) Pinecones are a great way to add a festive touch for the season.

Interesting displays that keep the eye moving with the theme on Holiday. Greenery, pinecones and collections add to the simple touches throughout the house. Most of the Nutcracker collection is in the living room as I posted earlier this week but I also like to add a few here and there throughout the house.

Bathroom soldier

Taking the decor into other rooms just keeps things festive. Here is a nutcracker guarding the towels on the shelf in the bathroom.

Bedroom Flowers

You don’t have to have a tree in every room to make things Christmassy. A simple arrangement on the night table does the trick and keeps things consistent throughout the house.

Hope this helps with the holiday guilt. You don’t have to spend days decorating the have festive touches. Use what you have and don’t change the entire decor. As you see in my Easy Holiday Dining Room Decor, all it takes is a few things tucked into what you have already to bring the Christmas spirit alive.

I hope this helped get you in the Christmas mood. How do you like to incorporate Christmas, or any other holiday, into your decor?

Feel Free to share your ideas and comment. I’d love to have you on my mailing list to keep you up-to-date on all of my inspirations.

Have a safe and happy holiday season

  1. Hi Connie! I love simple and uncluttered decor and yours are so beautiful and elegant. We can get a little carried away with the tinsel and Christmas lights and they can become gaudy. Thanks for sharing your ideas to still have the spirit of Christmas in our home but in an easy and understated way. Great to have you link up at #OvertheMoon and have a wonderful Christmas.
