Gold Christmas decor is such a sophisticated look and this year I’m using lots of it! I’m breaking down my holiday decorating into easily digestible tidbits. Today it’s all about Christmas in the dining room with gilded flair. Lots to talk about and show you…so scroll on down friends!
I challenged myself to come up with some new looks this year for the holiday season, while staying on budget. I think that the gold says what I wanted it to and most of all it makes me feel good. That’s my biggest “rule” of decorating whether seasonal or evergreen living. You do you and make yourself happy! Which is why I just put up another tree in my home office today! More coming on that soon!
Gold Christmas Decor – Adding Sophisticated Style (For Less!)
When I decorate for Christmas I always start by putting up the Christmas trees. In our home that usually means at least 3 or 4 trees 🎄🎄🎄 and the living room tree is first. If you haven’t see the other rooms that I’ve decorated this year, head on over HERE and HERE. I truly hope that you glean some inspiration, which basically is why I share with you!
This tree fits well in the dining room and it’s one that I’ve had for a long time. You can’t go wrong with these trees…they are stunning! Find it here – Slim Artificial Flocked Christmas Tree With Warm Lights. I added ribbon and matte metallic ornaments and some gold tinsel, just like on the living room tree.
Gold Christmas Decor – Tips For Repurposing A Wreath (That You Already Have)
Next I knew that I wanted to repurpose the artificial flocked wreath that I already had. I purchased several of these gold bay leaf clusters and boy are they stunning! Highly recommend if you’re looking to up your game with some gold Christmas decor!
I pushed them through the wreath and made sure that they were secure on the back side. So easy peasy! Then I added fairly lights, gold wired ribbon, a few small pine cones, some dried orange slices and nature inspired glass ornaments that I had received as a gift. It’s a unique look and really makes the room come alive this year hung on my favorite mirror (find it HERE)! I gifted myself that mirror awhile ago and it was a splurge but it makes the room!
Decorating The Buffet
A gilded tray that I already had was filled with THESE battery operated candles that are inexpensive and flicker like the real thing. They have a remote and I purchased 3 sets so that we can use them outside as well. Some additional faux Christmas greenery was sprinkled in the tray as filler. Find the FAIRY LIGHTS HERE.
This French urn was filled with some branches that I clipped from my garden. I sprayed them with this flocking spray and let them dry and then tucked into the urn amongst some pine cones.
The birds are Christmas tree clips and I don’t have a source. They add a nice woodland touch to the them of gold Christmas decor!
How To Add Small Wreaths To Your Chairs
Small boxwood wreaths and gold ribbon were added to the backs of the dining room chairs. I simply pinned them with a few dressmaker straight pins into the fabric on the chair backs! This seems to be the best way and I’ve tried velcro and double sided tape. They do not work, so if you’re going to try this look for some long straight pins and be gentle.
Silver buttonwood was clipped from my garden to make a table garland. The leaves have a nice soft faded green color and remind me of bay leaves. Use what you have…clip from the garden or the roadside and use your creativity to save money when decorating seasonally!
Christmas balls in metallic tones along with some dried orange slices finish up the mix and mingle table garland. A few metallic candles enhance the Gold Christmas decor and the table is set!
Thrift store chargers sprayed gold, my favorite dinner plates (find them HERE & HERE), vintage estate sale monogrammed napkins and pretty vintage ombre ribbon all add to a unique look. I hope that you find this inspiring as you go about your day and your holiday decorating!
