As you may be able to tell from the post title, it may be long so you might want to get a cup of coffee and sit down!
H and I have been busy today making changes in the dining room to give it a new look.
The first change was to replace the pink and cream stripped drapes with some light and airy white ruffled curtains......
I moved the display piece from the right side of the curtains to the left side.
I also put away all the pink glass that I had displayed on it and replaced them with fall decor.
I have matching skeleton candles on each of the lower tiers.
I replaced the display piece that I moved to the other side of the curtains with the dress form that I had stashed in the corner of a guest bedroom.
Poor thing has skeleton spiders crawling all over her......
I put Christmas lights under her skirt to give her a holiday feel.
She has a big pumpkin on the floor by her side that you may remember seeing it before as part of the centerpiece on one of my tablescapes.
I had the table kind of caddycornered in the room and decided I liked it better straight, so we slid it about 4 feet to the left.
I put a glittery copper colored owl on a pumpkin and placed them in the candleabra on the wall
I also put a different picture in the pass thru......
I have placecards tucked into a copper holder.....
I would never put these dishes in the oven, but I guess you could if you wanted to!
This is where I thought about making two posts out of this, but decided to make one long post so all the moving around that was done made sense.
Nothing in front of the cabinets BEFORE..............buffet in front AFTER
Under the window BEFORE...............in front of the display cabinet AFTER
The buffet is actually a drop leaf DF, so if I lift up the side piece I can sit 4-5 people here to eat. Or leave it down, and H and I can have tea there.
H sits here........
and I sit here.
This table arrangement will make it easy to seat 10 or more.....the holidays are fast approaching! I can put 6-8 adults at the big table and 4-5 kids at the smaller table.!
