  3. Kate you dining room is magazine worthy my friend! It belongs on the cover of BHG or Southern Living! I love that both of us live in Texas but you know that when other non-Texas people here that they might think we live close to each other. 🙂 If you decide to sell tickets for a tour, I’ll be the first in line. Always love hopping with you. Your home is so beautiful and I totally want those napkin rings. Where did you get them?

    1. Wow thank you Cindy!! I got those napkin rings years ago at Dillards and haven’t seen any similar since. I wish we did live closer because I would love to meet – you crack me up girl!! Maybe we can wrangle together a DFW blogger lunch next year. Merry Christmas!

  4. Kate, your home is beautiful. I love the centerpiece down your dining room table. It is so nice when you can see the person across the table from you. The napkin rings are lovely and you add the perfect ribbon. Happy Holidays.

  6. Oh Kate take a bow! Your classic Christmas décor is absolutely stunning. I adore the pops of red paired with the magnolia leaves. It’s always such a delight to be on tour with you!

  8. Kate, I love how you beautifully set your table. The magnolia garland is such a great idea!

  9. Your Christmas tablescape is so stunning Kate. The wreath hanging on the mirror is a gorgeous red and the star of the show. I’ve never seen anyone use a place card the way you have with the velvet ribbon. Brilliant! I love the look. Thank you for all the inspiration. Happy Holidays.

  11. Kate, It’s been a dream of mine as long as I can remember to be Southern! When I see stunningly decorated southern homes like yours I just can’t get enough! You do red and green proud! Your table is just so beautiful and festive. Thank you for the step-by-step tutorial! I love that you broke it all down for us! It doesn’t seem so daunting when we can see how you created your beautiful table a bit at a time. Merry Christmas!

    1. You’d definitely fit right in down here Yvonne – you’re a decorating inspiration for many women I know! Thank you so much for your sweet words. You’re always so encouraging to this “club” of fellow home decor bloggers. Merry Christmas to you and your family and enjoy those precious grandkids!

  12. Your table is set so beautifully and I love the tutorial on how to achieve your design. Using the red napkins as a base for the chargers was genius, they look amazing and add the perfect amount of red to each placesetting. The garland down the center is stunning, I need to remember that for my own home. It really does make the perfect centerpiece. Thanks so much for joining the tour again this season, your home is always so fun to tour.

    1. Thank you so much Marty!! I’m beyond thrilled to be a part of your Christmas tour. It’s such a long standing holiday house tour tradition in the blog world and always filled with such talented ladies. I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season!!
