Decking My Halls with another fun bird!

Day 8
"Decking My Halls"

A "partridge" landed in my Dining room a couple years ago and I found him on fabric that I had to make into a quilt.

Look closely.  The border fabric makes up 
all the kaleidoscope patterns.
My One Block Wonder - A Partridge in a Pear Tree

The quilt becomes the dining room table cover
for the winter season.
I decorate this room in early November 
and leave it up til February.

The centerpiece is made from thrift store finds
and I re purposed flowers my December wedding bouquet. 

Additional candle sticks set it off.

 White lights and greenery on the china cabinet 
serve as a wonderful night light. 
Brown peacock feather soften the look, glittered pears
and silk ribbon provide even more sparkle. 

A side board provides a place for more greenery and birds!

How do you decorate your dining room?
