Vintage Inspired Christmas Dining Room

I am so excited to kick off the holiday season this year.  Last year, my daughter was born on Christmas Eve, so needless to say, we spent most of Christmas in the hospital, and once we got home, Christmas was virtually over and I felt as if I had completely missed my favorite holiday of the year!

There are so many good ideas on how to decorate different rooms for Christmas!

This year, the Christmas songs started playing on the radio in the car on the first day of November, and I made sure to start decorating not long after.  I’m so excited to be a part of the Come Home for Christmas series, hosted by Vicki and Jenn from 2 Bees in a Pod, to share my dining room with you.  If you’re looking for some Christmas decorating inspiration, for any room in your home, you’ve turned to the right place!

Our dining room is actually not a formal dining room, or really a room at all.  It’s essentially just an eat in kitchen area.  Thankfully, it’s a large enough area to fit a table that seats six, which is plenty for our family.

I love the way vintage elements were brought into this dining room in a modern way for Christmas.

Because of this, I rarely set the table in a full tablescape.  Let’s be honest, with a 5 year old, 3 year old, and 1 year old eating at that table 3+ times per day, it would be a nightmare.  Instead, I love to change out the centerpiece for different holidays, and find ways to decorate around the rest of the room.

This is such a good idea for a Christmas centerpiece.

I put my bottle brush trees in vintage doorknobs last year and loved it.  I think every year I put out bottle brush trees, they’ll be set in doorknobs from here on out.

There's something about vintage Christmas decorations that I just can't resist.

The window shelves were so fun to decorate with my vintage estate sale finds.  I’ve been picking up these santa mugs every time I see them at a sale.  I also love the candle figurines, too.

Vintage ornaments are my FAVORITE!

I think vintage ornaments speak for themselves.  They are SO pretty!  This was the first year I started picking them up at estate sales, but I’m pretty certain they are going to become my new collection obsession.

I love the idea to hang ornaments from a sign or piece of art.

I’m too lazy to change out large signs and artwork in my home, so I just updated this sign (here’s how I made it) for Christmas by hanging ornaments right from the frame.

It’s all quite simple, but works well for our family, and our space!

Seriously – I love these little guys!

  1. When I get home I am going to eye up where I can hang ornaments like that, I love it and it is easy using what I have. (I have a New Years Day baby, giving that lost holiday plenty of fun over the years!).

  2. Jenny, the bottle brush trees in doorknobs is brilliant! Pinned so I’ll remember for next year 🙂 I love your vintage ornaments and how you’ve cleverly displayed them out of the reach of tiny hands but visible for all to enjoy!

  3. I need you to take me estate sale hunting with you! You find good things; I find nothing!!!! Love the vintage touches that you’ve collected. Such a great way to make the space festive while accommodating your family. Merry Christmas, Jenny!

    1. We really should go together! I only go to the ones that look like the person has lived in the house for over 50 years – there’s always treasures that have been stored away. Merry Christmas!!

  4. It’s so hard to believe your baby girl is going to be a year old already! I’m really excited you guys have had a chance to enjoy each other and really celebrate this year. Your home is always so cheerful and festive. I could eat cookies with you at this table any day of the week! I love the way you have your ornaments displayed too – so pretty! Hugs, Coco

  5. Those vintage ornaments are amazing!! They remind me of some my parents have. I love your bottle brush trees, too – the doorknobs are a great idea! I hope you’re able to enjoy some wonderful holiday meals here this year!
