Okay, even I’m a bit miffed at myself for posting something about the holidays in September! I have a fairly good reason for getting so far ahead of myself, though. You see, it all started when I got last-minute word late last week about a new styled photography job offer that comes with a holiday theme.
First, of course, I felt a big wave of gratitude for booking a new partnership (hello, entrepreneurialism), but then the panic settled in. After looking at the specifics in the contract, I found out that I essentially need to deck our halls for the holidays this week. Yup, you read that right. I’ll be hanging garlands, setting out reindeer, and flipping the switch on miles of twinkle lights this time tomorrow while it’s in the 80s outside.
I obviously love my job (like “love” love it), but it can definitely feel a little funny at times. This is one of those times. That said, I’m thrilled to have the excuse to jump the gun and think “Christmas” a full three months and 23 days before it actually happens. So, today I’m asking you to make one little exception and dream right along with me! Keep scrolling for dining room décor that fits in perfectly with all the festivities to come this winter.
Holiday-Ready Dining Room Décor:
1. Sway Low Bowls ($14)
3. Orb Upholstered Dining Chair ($299)
4. 2-Piece Metal/Glass Lantern Set ($54)
5. Printed Canvas Wall Art ($175)
6. Hipped Glassware (Set Of 4) ($24)
7. Jensen Round Dining Table ($399)
8. Ceramic Marble Oval Dessert Plate ($14)

12. Chilewich Interlace Sapphire Placemat ($20)
I know I scared you guys with all that talk up there about “holiday-ready” décor, but I hope your stress subsided at least a couple of degrees when you saw that I wasn’t talking full-on “Christmas” with this roundup.
Sure, it all works well with your traditional holiday characters (think: evergreen sprigs, ceramic tabletop trees, and jingle bells), but this collection of dining room accents really works any day of the year. As soon as you tuck all of those holiday decorations away until next year, you’ll be left with a sophisticated space that feels refreshing, no matter what season you’re in.
Now wish me luck because I’m off to go start planning how on earth I’m going to transform our dining room into a winter wonderland during the heat of summer! And in the meantime, let me know in the comments below if you’ve started planning your holiday décor ahead of the big event this December.
