We were blown away by the stunningly beautiful Christmas decor Kristin Jackson created for her dining room. She’s back with a more casual approach to Christmas dining, along with an explanation for the simple approach we all can understand.
Kristin’s Christmas brunch set up is just as gorgeous as anything we’ve seen from the talented interior designer. Kristin writes about design and decor on her very popular blog The Hunted Interior, and she’s sharing her Christmas brunch ideas here on The Home Depot Blog as part of our Holiday Style Challenge series. We sent her and several other prominent decor bloggers mystery boxes of Home Depot Christmas decorations for them to use in creating fresh and practical holiday decorating ideas.
This isn’t just about brunch, though. Kristin shares her ideas for decorating a Christmas mantel, too, and even a clever idea for unique wrapping paper.
Every Christmas, I have grand visions of a formal Christmas Brunch… but after our daughter is up extra early, the gift wrap and ribbon begin to unravel and the questions of “can you please put batteries in this?!” start, my good intentions of a beautiful meal are simply put on the coffee table for the family to enjoy at their leisure.
This year I decided to embrace the inevitable location and combine the two ideas into one. A simple yet elegant brunch that allows everyone to enjoy the wonderment of Christmas morning while still being able to create a lovely experience as well.
Adding a basic tablecloth (a staple in any home) to any table instantly adds elegance. Using this on the coffee table is completely unexpected, and when paired with the surroundings of holiday decorations, your living room can really be transformed to a magical space.
I always find myself perched on the floor anyway, so a throw pillow acts a a great stand in for a seat.
