Design by Occasion Holiday Home Tour {Part 1}: A SNOWY WINTER WHITE DINING ROOM

DESIGN BY OCCASION HOLIDAY HOME TOUR {PART 1}: SNOWY WHITE DINING ROOM

Welcome friends to our holiday home tour!

I’m happy to share with you Part 1 of our holiday home tour! Today, we are featuring our dining room that is all decked out in a snowy winter white theme. The inspiration for this room was our new flock tree that was purchased last year when we thought we would have a chance to be home by Christmas. If you are a follower of Design by Occasion, then you know my partner and I did not get a chance to celebrate last year for the holidays because I was in the hospital due to an emergency surgery to remove a recurrence of cancerous tumors – if you would like, you can read all about that, here. So needless to say, we were both thankful and very excited to be able to decorate and be home for the holidays this year! Our friend and talented photographer, Autumn Stankay of SkySight Photography has shown such support and we were thrilled that she could capture not only how we decorated our home for the holidays but special moments between me and my sweet love! This is our absolute favorite time of the year!!

Enjoy the tour! I’ve listed all the sources to some of the items you see around the room and on the table at the end of this post.

I have to say, Target really did good this year with their wonderful selection of holiday home decor! How adorable are the ceramic white houses?! Got a little creative and placed mini fairy lights inside each house so that it glows when the lights are dim.

The color palette for this room has a primary color of a snowy white, with accents of black, forest flocked green, and silver for that added sparkle.

In the cold season, it’s all about layers when getting dressed. I used the same concept here on the dining table by layering tone-on-tone dinner napkins and cloth placemats on top of the table linen. I think it gives the table a soft, cozy look. I also love the different holiday phrases on each dinner napkin – a festive reminder of the season!

I created festive DIY holiday wreaths made out of paper-wired garland from Target’s dollar section. I cut and folded the garland in a circular shape, twisted the wire together and accented each one with a grey ribbon, tied in bow. I then printed out the name tags and folded each corner to give it that scroll look and placed the name tags on the top of each wreath. It’s a special way to welcome your guests to their seats and a perfect decorative accent to each place setting!

It’s all about the details – even with the holiday treats! Resembling snow balls are these cinnamon meltaway cookies bites.

It was pretty magical to open the front door and see snow flurries after we shooted this home tour!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed viewing today’s dining room holiday home tour!  Check back on the blog tomorrow for part 2 of our holiday home tour, where we will be featuring our decorated living room!

See below for a list of everything on our table and some of the decor items around the room!

**The silver-rimmed dinnerware, glassware, and the vintage gold bell were items I purchased years ago while antiquing. The placemats were purchased years ago from Marshalls.
