A Simple Marie Antoinette Christmas

Hello and welcome back to Welch House! Can you believe there is only nine more days until Christmas? Time is moving by so quickly, I thought I would do a quick post of the dining room decorated for Christmas.


I had such a hard time decorating this room for Christmas this year. I wanted a Marie Antoinette themed Christmas and it took several tries to finally get the glamorous Old World look I was going for.



I wanted elegant, but not over the top Christmas decorations. I started off by trimming our real tree with simple pink satin ribbons, a pearl garland, along with crystal ornaments as well as pink ornaments.



Beautiful fresh Christmas garland lends a festive touch to the mantel as well to the DIY Trumeau Mirror that I created over the summer. Simple pink satin bows compliment the garland nicely.


I wanted the table to be fit for a Queen. I started with a tulle lace netting as the table cloth. A pink runner with music sheets on top create a unique setting. I knew I must add feathers somewhere in this tablescape and they looked perfectly in the golden goblets along with fresh flowers.



Of course we must have cake if Marie were to dine here. A cupcake at each place setting is the perfect treat.


Every single item on this Marie Antoinette themed table was thrifted for very little money. I love the crystal goblets, especially the one holding the cupcakes. They have a beautiful crest emblem engraved on them. I was told by the woman I purchased them from, that they were her Mother in law's and close to 100 years old. I truly love them.



As well as cupcakes, I also had a beautiful chocolate cake on the buffet complete with fresh roses ands a crown on top.


I hope if Marie were here today, she would approve of the tablescape that I created in her honor.



Thank you so much for visiting my simple budget friendly Marie Antionette inspired dining room. I hope you enjoyed it!



I would love to have you visit again!
