Farmhouse Christmas Dining Room

This post is sponsored by our friends at HomeGoods // Hi, sweet friends! Welcome back to our Farmhouse Holiday Series! Last week I shared the first look at our little farmhouse all decorated for Christmas in our master bedroom, and today I’m continuing on into our dining room with a fun, festive table setting I put together this week. My goal this year is to share easy ideas with you for simplifying the hustle and bustle of the holidays and creating a cozy, inviting home that is the perfect backdrop to create beautiful holiday memories with your loved ones. I truly hope that you enjoy this decorating series as much as I do and get some great ideas for your home!

So this look in our dining room is a little more over the top than I normally do. You guys know me… I’m a less-is-more kind of girl when it comes to decorating the farmhouse, but I couldn’t resist playing with a more whimsical look for the holidays this year, especially once I found some really sweet nutcrackers and these beautiful, little trees while I was out shopping at HomeGoods this past week. If there’s one time of year that you can get away with a big, oversized table setting like this, it’s during the holidays!

And lucky for you guys, I happen to have a $100 HomeGoods gift card that I’m giving away just in time to start your holiday shopping!

One of the reasons we built this big farmhouse table last year was to be able to accommodate all our friends and family at the holidays. It easily seats eight to ten people, and the wood grain is so beautiful that I usually don’t even bother using a fancy tablecloth. Lord knows my boys would have something spilled on it within 5 seconds of sitting down anyway!

I found these darling frosted evergreens at HomeGoods and set them in the center of the table. I love that they came in these cute, little wood boxes that matched our table perfectly. Every holiday dinner party needs a little bit of candlelight, so I added a collection of candlesticks in various heights between the trees. The little wooden nutcrackers fit perfectly nestled in between the candles and the trees, and I’ve already found my two little boys sitting at the table playing with them a few times this week. It’s seeing those little moments where the magic of Christmas comes alive for them that makes the holidays so special to me… creating memories they will cherish forever. So naturally, the simple, unadorned nutcrackers have become my favorite part of this entire table setting.

On the wall behind our table, I added two beautiful wreaths that hopped into my cart at HomeGoods. The little wooden rosettes add so much texture to the plain white wall and create such a pretty focal point in the dining room. I grabbed an old window frame and rested it on top of our board and batten trim between the two wreaths. I hung two of our stockings and a couple vintage Christmas cards on the frame. Simple, sweet, and just the right amount of Christmas cheer.

  72. I always host our kids and grandkids in our home. Your dining room is lovely. If I am blessed to win the gift card one of the gorgeous wreaths would be the first thing in my cart!

  73. Lisa Mothersead says:

    For years we drove to family homes, one year having 5 Christmas celebrations! Fun but exhausting. For the last several years we have stayed home and I love having Christmas Eve at home so we can attend our own church service and Christmas Day in our home for obvious reasons. Any family member is welcome.

  74. Your farmhouse is so inviting! We always travel to be with family at Christmas.

  75. barb dean says:

    So soothing!

  76. Love the dining room. I would love to use gift card for my son and daughter in law. They are newlyweds and moving into a new apartment in December. Thank you

    The beautiful wood rosette wreaths are a beautiful compliment to the wooden candlesticks and frosted trees.

  84. Cindy Jones says:

  92. We host and travel.

  93. Cassandra E says:

  97. I would love to win that gift card! As always Liz, your home is lovely. And I can’t wait for your new book! I pre-ordered it last week 😀

  98. Bonnie Formisano says:

    I’m not familiar with a Home Goods store; none in my area. In looking at all the wonderful table settings on the tour it would certainly be the place to shop!

  99. Most of the family live in the same city, so we usually travel from house to house.

  100. Susan Kistler says:

    I have a son who has always loved nutcrackers since he was little (now age 19) and saw a German one at my local Home goods-your home looks beautiful for the holidays- now enjoy it with your little ones!

  101. christina purvis says:

    Love your decorations! We currently go to my moms. Hopefully next year we can host!

  102. Heather Luna says:

    It varies from year to year depending on where the military moves us. But when we are home we love to host other military friends who are without family nearby.

  103. We alternate. I am hosting a dinner this year.

  104. Just gorgeous and very inspiring. I love shopping at Home Goods. They offer a lot of fun and unique pieces. I would love to buy a new accent rug or chair. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us. Very inspiring.

  105. We usually stay home…nice and simple and quiet. Just the way I like it!

    Love your nutcrackers – really dresses up your table nicely!

  106. We are having everyone at our house. We are right in the middle of everyone and have the most space, so it works well for everyone.

  107. Your Christmas tablescape is beautiful. Love your dining room wall also. It just pulls everything together. Homes Goods is my go to store for the home. Thanks for the giveaway, I’d love to in!

  108. Tiffany M. says:

    Love being home for the holidays!

  109. We live a long ways from our immediate family, so we usually invite another family with the same situation from our church home for a holiday dinner.
    Your table setting is lovely!

  110. Marjorie Meeks says:

    It depends, we have done both! Though I haven’t hosted anything in about 2 years which has been a nice break 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win

  111. Wow!!! This just got me so pumped for the holidays! I always host Christmas and am looking forward to it like crazy this year!

  112. Everything looks lovely! Our whole family lives in the same city so we always go to my parent’s house….it definitely still feels like it did when I was a kid which is what I love about Christmas!

  113. Your home is so beautiful! I especially love the bedroom all decorated for Christmas. Our family lives here locally, so we won’t be going to far! Have a Merry Christmas!

  114. Jillian Too says:

    We always host for the holidays. It’s so much easier than traveling.
