I have created a traditional Christmas breakfast room for our first Prairie House Christmas!
Hey friends! I’m coming at ya today with the second half of my Christmas tour, our traditional Christmas breakfast room! I have added some pops of red, which is my favorite color. So, at this time of year, I can hardly resist adding pops of red everywhere! Since we are still living in a partially unfurnished home, I kept it simple this year for Christmas decor, but I just love the way this room turned out, so I had to share.
You might remember that we recently did a kitchen renovation, which also included some updates to our breakfast room. And if you missed it, please go and check out the first part of our Christmas tour where I shared our flocked Christmas tree and our front room decorated for the Holidays.
I decided to paint this window ledge black during the makeover, and I could not be more happy with how it turned out. It was the perfect finishing touch to this space. I have two of these large window ledges in our home, and they are quickly becoming my favorite spots to add a little pretty. Especially since we do not have a fireplace in our new home. In central Texas, a fireplace is really not needed for warmth, but I love the character a mantle brings to a space. So one day I plan to add one to our home. Hopefully I will find a great vintage mantle that I can add either to our living room or our bonus room upstairs. Who knows right now, but once I find the perfect piece, I am sure I will also find the perfect spot for it.
This vintage porcelain doll was gifted to my daughter back when she was just a tiny baby. It still resides here with me, and I haven’t used it in my Christmas decor before. But this year, it just felt right to give her a place on our buffet. I just love all of her beautiful details!
If you look closely at my plant, you will see that an elf fell in! I have had these little elf feet for years and love to display them in this plant each Christmas. Fun!
I found this red jar full of greenery at Marshall’s this year, and I could not resist picking one up for our breakfast room table.
You might notice the rd sing above the door that says God Jul. That means Merry Christmas in Swedish, and my aunt and uncle made this for me a few years back. I love it here over our garage door.
I have a few vintage plaid table cloths displayed here on this window ledge as well. But soon, I plan to set up a folding table in an empty spot in our home where a future dining table will go. I plan to cover it with the plaid table cloth and make it a place where all of the kids can enjoy working a Christmas puzzle I bought that will display a beautiful Christmas scene. I am hoping we can get the puzzle all finished over the holidays. And it will be something that can bring everyone together doing a fun activity, and put down their electronics and talk to each other.
That wraps up our breakfast room, but I do have a few more photos of other spots around our home that I am including below. I hope you enjoyed this peek into our new space. It is a main hub of our home, and we really enjoy spending time here.
I never have shared our living room with you guys yet. I just haven’t felt that it is quite picture worthy yet, but I did start working on a gallery wall in here, and you can see part of it below.
This is the space where our future dining table will be, but for now I have a small bookcase here and my vintage suitcases. It’s the perfect spot to display my letterboard, and I love to make it whimsical with a funny message.
Maybe I shouldn’t use this language when I still have a middle school student at home, but do you think it’s anything she isn’t already hearing at school? I don’t think so! Plus, she hasn’t even noticed it yet, so there’s that.
I saw this plaid wine bottle at the grocery store and couldn’t put it in my basket fast enough. Maybe one day we will actually open it up and drink it. But I will probably keep the bottle because it’s just that good!
And this is the second window ledge that I mentioned above. We haven’t gotten around to painting it yet, but I imagine it will go black too at some point, because I love the way the one in the breakfast room turned out!
and now, I have to get to wrapping and unpacking all of the boxes we have had shipped here with gifts. I haven’t wrapped a single thing yet, and it is time! My two older children will be arriving on Monday, and all five us will be together for the Holidays. And that really is all I want for Christmas this year. Just don’t tell my husband I said that, ha! I wish you and yours the very Merriest of Christmases this year, and a Happy New Year too! Happy Holidays!
