Christmas Buffet Table

Hey my friends!
Happy White Wednesday to you all!
Today I'm sharing my buffet table in the dining room.
This is one of my favorite tables to change for every season. 
(or every week if the feeling should come over me)

If you have been following along for a while, you may know about this table.
If you are new, here's the scoop:
It came from Canton Trade Days in Texas, it's over six feet long :)
Made from an old vintage door, it still has the door knob and hinges.
I painted it white a few weeks ago.

For my Christmas decorating this year, I have bought nothing new.
I am continuing with the simple, natural vintage motif.

The silver tray came from my mom, as did all the glassware.

The old vintage spoon was my husband's grandmothers'.

This summer, I found the vintage pastry molds at a flea market in Florida.
See where they are from?

I already had the faux round wreaths.
I used trimmings from Home Depot (for free :) to make the swag.

A view into the dining room.

"O Holy Night"
This is my all time favorite Christmas song...
The night of our Dear Savior's birth :)
Gives me chills every time.

Do you have a  favorite Christmas song?
Be sure to visit all the whites at Kathleen's Faded Charm

Thanks for hosting, ladies!

Thanks for stopping in to visit today.
I want to thank all of you for your kind comments about my dining table.
You made my day :)

Your home is beautiful! Love the buffet table with all the vintage things! The chalkboard is adorable. Silent Night is such a wonderful hymn - along with Hark the Herald Angels Sing.

Brenda Kula said...

Honey, your decorating is sheer perfection! Looks straight out of a magazine. I live near Canton, by the way.

O.K so you caught me,back for another look and you have a new and amazing post....YOUR SO GOOD,you have such a gift,I think i may just have to move in with you!!!!!!

Robin said...

Simply stunning! Your talent for displays always blows me away! I really like how you used everyday items with such meaning and made it all work for the Holidays. The wreaths, the candles, the bottlebrush trees and the silverware are some of my "favorite" things from this grouping.

One of my favorite songs is also, O Holy Night (sung by Andy Williams it brings back memories of singing along with my mother). I also like Have a Holly Jolly Christmas and What Child Is This.

Deb said...

You are a smart lady keeping it inexpensive. Your room looks so calm and glorious. I love all your whites and the chalk-board is such a sweet idea. My favorite song too, It makes me cry. Josh Groban sings it like an angel. Have a great evening. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5

I love your decorating! Simple and pretty, with a vintage feel. Very comfortable and enviting.

Lori said...

You have given me ideas with my extra greenery for Home Depot! Everything fabulous as usual.

Donna said...

I just discovered your beautiful blog, and I love your style! My favorite Christmas song is "Away in a manger". I never get tired of it! I love your chalkboard, and all of the natural elements you have added. I think my very favorite thing is your awesome bottle dryer (I think that's what it is called!). Love it!!

Amy Kinser said...

This is just beautiful in all it's simple perfection! When are you coming to middle Tennessee to help me to make things look like yours?

One of my favorites is Little Drummer Boy and I also love Away in a Manger.

BTW...the baking day went great today with the girls. So fun and so yummy. When is yours?

All That Jazz said...

Just lovely! Have your heard Martina McBride's version of O Holy Night? It's beautiful! I heard her sing it live (on T.V.) once. My favorite Xmas song is probably "Have Yourself A Merry Little Xmas."

Ozma of Odds said...

...simply adore your style girl!!
LOVE it all!!

favorite christmas song is sarah mclachlan's, wintersong cd...I can't just pick one!!

xo, Rosemary

Becky - I am in total awe of your beautiful buffet table and your dining room. It is SO beautiful! I have a small buffet table and two vintage shutters in my small dining area, so you really gave me some wonderful ideas on other ways to use them. Definitely going to be on the lookout for a large framed picture to morph into a chalkboard. Thank you! My fav Christmas hymn is "Mary Did You Know?"

Faded Charm said...

I love the simplicity and neutral colors. Don't you love how greens can add that Christmas spirit even when added to everyday items.

Very beautiful!

Dee@FrenchBleuVintage said...

Great stuff!!! Everything is so calming and pretty. I too love those art tins for candle holders ~ very festive all the time. Happy Holidays

raggygirlvintage said...

It all looks wonderful, I love your buffet table with the big chalkboard. That's my fav Christmas song too!

Roselle said...

Wow....I love your post and blog. First time here and won't be my last.
I LOVE O Holy Nite too but it must be sung by Michael Crawford (Phantom of the Opera) or IL Divo. I cry every time I hear it. Especially "down on your knees...."
Merry Christmas

Pam said...

I love the doorknob on your table. Everything looks so serene and peaceful. Very pretty.

Debra@Common Ground said...

I'm just squealing with excitement, there's more inspiration in here than any magazine!! Do you know we have the same kitchen table and chairs? yep, we sure do. Your table and chalkboard are just amazing!!
Thanks for linking up with VIF!!

Mary said...

Love your soothing whites of the season! I covet your bucket with your greenery nestled inside :-)

Michelle said...

I love the blue tinted canning jars... the burlap on your template is awesome! How do you find time to do all this decorating when you're home schooling - amazing! I haven't bought anything new this year either and I will not - not only is money tight this year - it's just not necessary, we can make things beautiful and Christmasy without purchasing new items for sure if we are a bit creative and that is half the fun of it!

Stop by my blog if you have a chance too - I found you via White Wednesdays ;)



Kelly said...

I found you through Vintage Inspiration Friday and I'm your newest follower! I love all your neatural colors and whites, and I'm a huge fan of ball jars. Lovely stuff here!


Miss Sandy said...

A beautiful buffet filled with all things wonderful! White trees, silver trays, candy molds, and a beautiful chalk board to boot. I love it all! Very Inspiring. I will be searching for some fresh sprigs of pine tomorrow. I am so glad I will be following you.

I love coming to your blog to see how artfully you have arranged your rooms and things. You are so talented!
Your images and the way you capture the light in your vignettes is wonderful.
Do you have a good source for the bottle drying stand that you have? I can only find terribly pricey ones!
Have a nice weekend. :)
