December has arrived, and it's finally time to dress up our home for the holidays! One of the easiest ways to give your dining room a festive mood is to use a holiday-themed table runner. I love this whimsical holiday table runner from the Pottery Barn Kids 2011 holiday tabletop collection. It will definitely keep your kids entertained during mealtimes as they look at the illustrations and imagine what is going on. The table runner shows a snowy scene with forest animals scurrying to and fro, getting their little corner of the woods all decked up for the holidays and helping Santa load up his sled. Even though it's from the Pottery Barn Kids line, I think it looks great on our dining room table. It has a vintage feel which goes perfectly in our Arts and Crafts bungalow, and the bright red accents throughout the design are anything but faded or musty-looking! Check it out:
If you want to keep things simple, this table runner is all the decoration you need, but to make things even more festive, I put out a pair of pillar candles, covered with candle sleeves in a bright-red scroll. Instead of those candle sleeves, you could also put a couple of small evergreen wreaths and nestle the candles in the middle. For tableware, you could use plain red plates, or the Pottery Barn Kids Christmas Plates Set:
Adorable! This weekend The Pea is hosting a cookie exchange party, and I will definitely be using this table runner. Stay tuned for more photos!
