There Is A Christmas BELL In My Dining room


I find it more fun to have a color scheme, or even a bit of a theme for my Christmas décor. 

This year I had a plan to use Jingle Bells in my décor.

To be honest I was not quite sure how it would all end up, but so far I am pleased with my simple addition.

The colors for this years dining table will be black and white with touches of greenery, silver and pinecones.

I started by placing a black and white buffalo checked topper on my table. I then placed a sparkly wall mirror for my base. The jewels around the frame remind me of snowflakes.

The movie the Polar Express is a favorite of mine so I had to use this little saying.

The BELL is the important piece in the room, so I chose to use only one. 

I could have added more greenery, bells and embellishments, but I think in decorating it is important to know when to stop adding so I kept it simple, and uncomplicated.

I suspended the large bell with fishing line to make it the feature. I decided to keep it simple and only add a few fresh sprigs of greenery, snow, and pine cones.

In the evening the candles are lit and it just glistens.
