Christmas in the Dining room 2016

My sweet mom painted for me a beautiful Nativity set a few years ago, I displayed it on my Foyer table last year.

This year I kept the foyer table simple so I wasn't sure where to display this Nativity set. 

It has to be in a place where my little kids can't easily reach as I will be sad if it breaks. I considered not to display it this year and save it for next year.

For a while I was debating how to create a center piece for my dining room table.

Hmmm, what to do? simply some flowers? Some greenery?  When all the sudden the light bulb went on and I had one of those AHA!!! moments.

I mimic my Fall centerpiece, but this time, instead of using red and orange leaves, branches, nuts, turkeys and birds, why not use evergreens and my mom's Nativity set!

I set everything up on the same wood board I made for the Fall centerpiece. You can read about that HERE

I cut some greenery from my yard, I set the Nativity set in the middle and I added pine cones here and there. 

I'm using my grandmother's china. I brought it from Spain with me last summer in a carry on! 

Thank you so much for visiting and have a wonderful day!


  1. Beautiful tablescape have Merry Christmas

  2. A lovely idea for a centerpiece, especially since the set was painted by your mother. Happy New Year!
