Christmas at a Discount – Kitchen Dine-In

This is the Eat-In kitchen dining area.  Spruced up with more poinsettias.

(What can I say, I love their velvety beauty.)

Here’s a closer look,

Three poinsettias $4.50 (they were half-off at Walmart)

Small wreaths tied with raffia on the back of my white chairs $4.00 total. (Dollar Tree)

Branch over the window $5.00

(bought at the Attic sale for $5, it still had the tag on it from Hobby Lobby-$39)

Window sill dressed with greenery from the yard (I’m rooting the ivy)

and free succulents from my Mama at Thanksgiving.

Same old deer that I’ve had forever, they show up somewhere different every year.

My silver wine chiller from Goodwill, holding one of the poinsettias.  (I’m trying to see how many times I can say that word this Christmas season–poinsettia—said it again).

Geese on the pond, free winter entertainment.

Total cost (this year) for a jolly eating experience:

$13.50 (plus tax where applicable) 

Details on this amazing new/old table coming soon.  I feel the need to overload you with poinsettias and Christmas right now.

How many times did I say poinsettia? or poinsettias?

    Love your room. So pretty. I have the same saying over my breakfast nook windows. And, I bought a silver champagne bucket at Goodwill for $4 too. I’ve put a tree in mine, but I love the idea of the poinsettia. Stop by and take a look, if you have time. Thanks for sharing your home. Have a wonderful, blessed Christmas.

    Your dining room looks so lovely. I love that you spent so little to achieve such an elegant look. The view of the pond is the icing on the cake! So glad you shared this at my Show & Tell party.

    So Christmas-sey! I was wondering if you find your windows that go to the floor a challenge? I do & would never think a bench with a round table would look right, but I’m going to try it!
