Festive and Fun Tree Hop

Red and Blue Christmas Tree in the Dining Room:

For the first time ever, I decided to decorate a Christmas tree in my dining room!  Even though I’ve decorated my dining room each season, this is our first tree since we repainted the room!

exact 6.5 ft. Christmas tree

Since my dining room walls are navy (Sherwin Williams – Naval), I carried the navy blue over to the Christmas tree.  

When I shared my Christmas table setting the other day, I only gave a glimpse of my partially decorated Christmas tree in the corner.  Well, now the tree is fully decorated and ready to be featured!

As you can see, I decorated my tablescape with navy blue, plaid and splashes of red.  For the Christmas tree, I did the same.

Since I had some leftover plaid ribbon, I added that to the tree and then decorated with red and navy blue ornaments.  

Red Bows on the Table and Christmas Tree: 

On each place setting, I tied a red bow around some fresh greenery…

So, it only made sense to feature some red bows on the red and blue Christmas tree!

And what better place for a red bow than on top of the Christmas tree!  Not only do I love the simplicity of a simple red velvet bow but I absolutely love the way the red pops against the navy blue walls!

Funny story on the red bow…

When I started decorating the Christmas tree, I only had the navy plaid ribbon (from Ballard Designs).  At that point, I didn’t have a plan for the Christmas tree topper but thought a bow might be nice.  So, I made a bow from the navy plaid but it didn’t stand out enough against the navy walls.  Like most of us, I want to limit my trips to the store these days so I tried to make due with what I had.  As I rummaged through my stash in the basement, I thought to myself, “If I only had some red velvet ribbon”.  Well, I kid you not, I lifted up a stack of tablecloths and there was a roll of red velvet ribbon!!!

After adding the red velvet ribbon to the top of the tree, I sprinkled red ornaments and small red ribbons throughout the tree.  This gave a nice balance of red and blue color to the Christmas tree.

As you can see, my collection of blue and white china mixes in perfectly with my red and blue Christmas tree decorations.

And the addition of the Christmas tree has given a whole new look to my dining room!

Though, I’m not the only one who appreciates the Christmas tree…

I think Rosie has been enjoying it as well!

    1. Thanks Jennifer! We really should use that room more often. Thanks for stopping by – great hopping with you!

  2. Your red and blue Christmas tree is perfect for your navy dining room, Shelley. Isn’t it awesome when we find a treasure like red ribbon… especially when we ‘need’ it? LOL! Pinned (and I fixed the spelling of your name on my blog… I can never remember whether you use an ‘ey’ or just a ‘y’ on the end.) Hehe.

    1. Thanks Cecilia! It was fun trying a tree in a new spot. If this pandemic goes on much longer, I’ll have a tree in every room! Merry Christmas to you!

  3. Your tree and entire dining room looks aahhhmazing! I’ve always wanted to have a tree in our dining room but there’s not enough room. Glad you found your red velvet ribbon too. When I say things like that, I still don’t find it. Always love hopping with you. Merry Christmas.

    1. Thanks so much Cindy! I’ve never had a tree in there before but I don’t think this will be the last. Can you believe the ribbon luck I had? I should have bought a lottery ticket that day… Best wishes for a Merry Christmas!

    1. Thanks so much, Kelly! Yes, what a find on that ribbon…I should have bought a lottery ticket that day! Have a wonderful holiday season!

  7. Shelley… your dining room looks positively stunning! It is magazine worthy. I so want a navy room in my next house. Thanks for including the color. Have a wonderful week, Shelley.

  8. Lucky Rosie gets to bask in the beauty of the glow of your gorgeous tree! I am loving it in the dining room this year and of course I am mad for plaid, so I adore your plaid ribbon and gift wrap! The navy plaid is so perfect! Love your tablescape too.

    So fun to hop with you as always!

    Merry Christmas!
