Family-Breakfast Room Christmas Tour

I really wanted the Familyroom and Breakfast area to have a little Christmas decor, however I didn't want to redo the whole room, so I just did a little tweaking to what I had.

This is what was there.  Love the rooster centerpiece, so I wanted to use it again.


 Simple, I just took out the pillar and added three tapers, replaced the feathers with a gold glitzy pointsettia and some berries.  Changed the bow, placed it on a white platter and called it done.  The napkins got changed to red and black check too.  Total transformation and so easy to undo after the holidays.





 I took the sunflowers out of the basket arrangement on the wall and added one pointsettia.


 I use the buffet in here as my desk, so I wanted a little Christmas here too.  I showed you these pieces that I found at Goodwill, so they give this spot the perfect amount of decoration.


 Great little lighted tree and the Carolers are just adorable.




I took the Brown and Burnt Orange pillows and throw off the sofa, added some lime and a red one that I had and a $2.88 throw from Walmart that's a red and lime plaid,  spread some Santas around with a few reindeer and christmas toys and done.


 I think this is totally enough with all the red in the breakfast area and wait til I show you the kitchen, there's a ton of red in there too, so you defiitely feel cheery when you walk in here.


(Just a little sneak peak at the kitchen)


You don't have to re-invent the wheel to add a little Christmas to a room.  Easy to put it all back when Christmas is over.  I like that part.

  1. Love those little carolers, Marty! They are so cute! Great chef Santa, too. He looks like a good size for a countertop. I have two, but they are kind of big and I wasn't sure if I was going to use them this year.

  25. That's what I've tried to do this year too. I just dread the taking down and storing. I do enjoy having the touches mixed in with the usual decor. I've seen several of us doing it this way this year. Everything looks just lovely as always. I love the chicken all decked out on your table, and those carolers are so sweet.

    Have a great evening!

  33. Hi Marty,

    This looks great -- so pretty and festive, but not too busy. My very favorite thing is your carolers; they are DARLING! I can't believe you found those at Goodwill. I never find anything good at ours. :)

    I also love your placemats with the little pockets and the straps for the napkins. Are the pockets for silverware? I've never seen any like these; such a cute idea.

    I definitely like your Santa chef in the kitchen -- can't wait to see the rest. It's so much fun to see everyone's Christmas decorations.

    Have a great day!
