Dining Room Tree



I'm finally beginning to get a little holiday spirit, and I decided to decorate the dining room for Christmas.  With a little inspiration from Cindy, at My Romantic Home, I wired up some teacups and hung them on the tree.






I'll probably add some ribbon today, but I'm liking how it looks so far.  :)

  5. Mary, this has your usual style and flair. I have a container of old demitasse cups, I can't wait to try this idea. Since I'm trying to do a "Cajun" Christmas, the little cups and enamelware coffeepot should work. Thanks for the inspiriation, LOVE your little red house....

  10. I have a small tree in our dining room with miniature teacups and saucers, and I love it. You've inspired me to perhaps try a bigger tree with real cups! This looks beautiful!

  11. It looks great Mary! It's so nice that you have room to display more then one tree. I wish I did, but we so "cozy" here, not much room for even one tree, lol!
    Enjoy your day!

  16. Hi Mary :)

    I love your version of Cindy's cute tree and it looks lovely in your beautiful dining room.

    The colonial house put me in a decorating mood too. I've been trying to get it all done for days. Hopefully I'll be done before I have to take it down LOL

  20. Lovely. I've been doing a teacup tree in my dining room for years and it's everyone's favorite. I add some faux fruit to the branches and walnuts that have been spray painted gold.

  30. Mary, did you say "ribbons?" I used ribbons but for some reason thought perhaps it was not being done so much lately.
    Even if you are not in the mood yet..you are doing great and I feel Christmas spirit coming on you. Merry Christmas, Mary!

  33. Oh, Mary how I've missed you!

    I love your tree next to "my" red chest and all the teacups hanging on it....so "Mary"!

    I hope you're keeping warm in New Jersey, we are having 70+ temps here this week! We'll be at the lake on Sat. for Christmas with all the family so I hope it stays warm enough for the kids to play outside....if not, we'll be toasty warm next to the fire!

    Merry Christmas!
