My Rustic Glam Farmhouse Christmas Dining Room
Hello everyone and welcome to my rustic glam farmhouse Christmas dining room! This is the first Christmas since I completed the dining room makeover and I’m so excited to share it with you.
This was the first room in the house that I decorated for Christmas this year and it came together very easily. You might recognize many of the decorations that I used in here from last year’s Christmas mantel and the Christmas shelves in my breakfast area.
This wreath is actually the one that I made to use over my mantel last year. I was inspired by one I had seen in a catalog.
I made sure to find a spot for my NOEL Christmas pillow. It’s one of my faves!

My motto this year was “no glitter allowed”, but in the dining room, that rule kind of fell by the wayside as soon as I decided to use this wreath on the mirror above the sideboard. It set the tone for the whole room. But that’s okay since I always try to dress the dining room up a bit. I’m in love with the glittered reindeer and frosted branches!
Across the room, the sideboard and vintage mantel shimmer with burnished gold trees, branches, a wreath and a few glittery houses.
The candles in my diy hanging lanterns are simply dressed with a strip of ribbon around them and the baskets below contain some of my Christmas dishes.
My tree is filled with all sorts of vintage ornaments, plus a few that I purchased last year. Lighted branches fill the top and trailing glitter tape falls naturally down the length of the tree.
The ornaments may be shimmery and glittery, but many of them are nature inspired.
The centerpiece for the table is about as easy as you can get and will be easy to set a table around for dining. I simply folded a frosted pine garland in half and wrapped some of the branches around each other to hold it together. Then I tucked in natural colored faux pine pieces (from picks that I cut apart) and added a few of my vintage silver candle holders. I didn’t bother to polish the tarnish that’s on them as I think it adds to vintage vibe.
Christmas dinner is going to feel so special in my dining room this year!
This is about the last of the glitter that you’ll see in my house this Christmas. The rest of the house looks totally different. I’ll be sharing more soon! When do you start your Christmas decorating?
Sharing at THESE great parties.
Love it! I think I’ll copy your table idea. So simple but looks great!
Your rustic dining room looks great. I like the idea of putting wreaths on mirrors, so I am going to try that. Working on my dining room now!
Where did you get your holiday houses? I have been looking everywhere and nothing seems to grab me, but I do like these !
Hi Loyda. I’ve picked those little houses up several places – TJ Maxx , At Home and a local home decor shop. I have trouble finding ones that I like too.
Really like the simple table idea…
Everything is so pretty. I love that wreath you made and it is just the perfect amount of glitter.
I just love your dinning room. I have saved a few of you many ideas & am so excited to use them in my own home.
Absolutely beautiful Suzy. I am in love with your decorating.
Oh so lovely! I love those lanterns and the way you’ve hung them. I am so excited to start my decorating this year. I try to hold off until after Thanksgiving dinner. My family decorates my tree then. But way before, I have visions of decorating dancing in my head! Ha! Thanks for your inspirations.
Everything is beautiful!!!
Absolutely Beautiful. I love your rustic elegant dining room. Stunning!! Thanks for the inspiration!
I love your style of decorating, however, I am not a fan of very much glitter either! I do have some things that I will use anyway, but the glitter always seems to stay around until at least June!!
Love, love, love your dining room table centerpiece! I will be borrowing that wonderful idea! The whole room is lovely! Can’t wait to see the rest of the house! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Lol on not wanting glitter and then going all out – some things just seem to take on a life of their own. I can’t imagine what your vision was for your dining room, but I think the glam and rustic vibe is lovely. I’m going to play around with one of my garlands and see if I like it folded in half on my table – I’ve never used a garland there before. I can’t wait to see how you decorated everything else in your other rooms.
We’ve had our first snow of the year here in Michigan and once I knew it was on the way, I removed all outdoor fall decor. I didn’t put up any of my Christmas decor yet. Inside, I’ve scaled by on my fall palette, but I still have my white and olive sweater pumpkins, some faux leaves in glasses and tea cups, and three tiny ceramic orange pumpkins in my dining space. I’ll put those away after Thanksgiving dinner and slowly begin to bring out my Christmas decor. I’ve been pinning, but I’m not sure about my look for this year – definitely shopping the house and hopefully make some new things from supplies I already own.
I just love your centerpiece. It’s so simple and elegant. Perfect.
I like the mix of rustic and glitter. It gives you the best of both decorating styles with out that stuffy ” look but don’t touch” feel ..great job.
Your home is beautiful! I love the rustic glam! Where did you get that great wreath? It’s gorgeous…
Hi Jeanne. I made the wreath last year after being inspired by one I saw in a catalog. So glad you like it!
What a beautiful room! By the way, I have seen little holiday houses on the QVC website under Valerie Parr Hill for the home.
Looks awesome!! Glad you used your old tree in the dining room. It really adds a lot and will make Christmas dinner extra special this year!! ???
I love your decorations. You have an eye for detail. Beautiful. Enjoy your holidays. Rita
Very pretty! Love the neutral!
