Welcome back to our Christmas Home Tour 2020. We left off in the kitchen, so if you missed that you can take the tour here

Today, I’m sharing the dining room.

I love the look and feel of this room so much more since we updated the table, chairs, and light fixture. The modern feel mixed with classic details is exactly what I was looking for.

For Christmas this year, I kept the dining room decor simple. This space is open to the living room, which is completely decked out for Christmas. So, I thought I would balance it a little by keeping the dining area decor minimal.

On the table, I have a small tabletop tree inside of this wooden tray

I love the mix of the natural wood against the black table. And the tree is just so cute! I love the spindly look.

The console table also got a tabletop tree, but this one is flocked. It’s the same one that I have in the mudroom, and at night it lights up with twinkle lights!

I continued the minimal vibe with my favorite wooden “joy” figurine.

And under the console table, I have my santa pillows. These are so fun and I love that they have a vintage vibe.

Since the living room was pretty full this year with furniture and decor, I decided to move our stocking ladder into the dining room.

I really love how it stands out against the white board and batten wall. And I think I’ll keep it in this room next year too!

The staircase is in the center of our home, so it can be seen from all of the rooms on the main level. Every year, I like to decorate the staircase for Christmas with faux garland. You can see my original post showing how I created the garland look here.

I found this faux garland a few years ago and it’s no longer available. It’s such a great texture and looks very realistic. 

It also has lights and an attached battery pack so at night you get the twinkle light look.

In years past, I always attached stems of eucalyptus to the garland to give it a mixed greenery look. It also helped to make the garland look fuller in general and more high-end.

I liked the look, but I always had a hard time getting the eucalyptus to look evenly distributed on the greenery garland.

This year, I came up with a great alternative! I found this set of 2 eucalyptus garlands online. I love the shape of the leaves and the quality is also amazing! It looks very realistic.

Since my faux greenery garland is a 9’ long length, I needed 2 strands of the eucalyptus garland on either side of the staircase. 

I used the first eucalyptus garland starting at the top and attached it to the greenery garland with floral wire.

Then I cut the second garland down so that it stopped at the floor, just like the greenery garland.

The extra piece that I cut off I actually used at the top of the garland. I attached it with some floral wire to give that spot a fuller, fluffier look.

I attached the garland to the staircase using these garland ties. I also used floral wire throughout to attach any pieces that were out of place.

To finish the garland look, I added a strand of gold bells. I got these from Hobby Lobby a few years ago and they are so pretty!

The garland on the staircase is one of my favorite Christmas decorations! It’s just so beautiful.
