I love traditional Christmas colors. Who's surprised really?! I mean, "Red is my signature culuh." - said in a very Steel Magnolias way. A healthy dose of red, white and green makes me especially warm and fuzzy this time of year.
It's such a happy combo of colors!
In lieu of a table runner I used fresh greenery. And to pacify my need to get in as much red as possible I wrapped a few clear glass votives with some faux bois wrapping paper (Target).
To add some color to the windows I hung a pom pom garland (Target) and created a pennant banner with some twine and (Michaels dollar spot) note cards.
I hung one single star ornament from the chandy over the table.
That little star makes me ridiculously happy! And the Elf quote on the chalkboard makes me all kinds of giddy too!
So that is what we've got going on in the breakfast room/nook a.k.a the eat-in kitchen. Simple and sweet - that's my motto this year.
Are you doing traditional colors this year? Or are you going with a new color combo? Every year I say I'm going to try using something other than red - and then - bam - it sneaks itself right back in. I think we're soul mates.
