So this look in our dining room is a little more over the top than I normally do. You guys know me… I’m a less-is-more kind of girl when it comes to decorating the farmhouse, but I couldn’t resist playing with a more whimsical look for the holidays this year, especially once I found some really sweet nutcrackers and these beautiful, little trees while I was out shopping at HomeGoods this past week. If there’s one time of year that you can get away with a big, oversized table setting like this, it’s during the holidays!
And lucky for you guys, I happen to have a $100 HomeGoods gift card that I’m giving away just in time to start your holiday shopping!

One of the reasons we built this big farmhouse table last year was to be able to accommodate all our friends and family at the holidays. It easily seats eight to ten people, and the wood grain is so beautiful that I usually don’t even bother using a fancy tablecloth. Lord knows my boys would have something spilled on it within 5 seconds of sitting down anyway!
I found these darling frosted evergreens at HomeGoods and set them in the center of the table. I love that they came in these cute, little wood boxes that matched our table perfectly. Every holiday dinner party needs a little bit of candlelight, so I added a collection of candlesticks in various heights between the trees. The little wooden nutcrackers fit perfectly nestled in between the candles and the trees, and I’ve already found my two little boys sitting at the table playing with them a few times this week. It’s seeing those little moments where the magic of Christmas comes alive for them that makes the holidays so special to me… creating memories they will cherish forever. So naturally, the simple, unadorned nutcrackers have become my favorite part of this entire table setting.

On the wall behind our table, I added two beautiful wreaths that hopped into my cart at HomeGoods. The little wooden rosettes add so much texture to the plain white wall and create such a pretty focal point in the dining room. I grabbed an old window frame and rested it on top of our board and batten trim between the two wreaths. I hung two of our stockings and a couple vintage Christmas cards on the frame. Simple, sweet, and just the right amount of Christmas cheer.
