Decorating A Dining Room For Christmas – Coastal Decor
This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.
Today I am sharing how decorating a dining room for Christmas in a coastal theme can be so much fun! Whether you are decorating a living room, dining room or creating a coastal Christmas centerpiece, it’s easy to add a coastal Christmas theme to your home. I am going to show you the dining room “before” we purchased new modern farmhouse style furniture and then the dining room after with the new furnishings and decorated for Christmas.
Our modern farmhouse dining room was one of my favorite rooms at our old house and the seagrass chairs (they are from Wayfair) were to die for! I ended up selling them to the couple who bought the house and this picture below makes me miss them!
Here is the dining room before. Our darker farmhouse table and windsor chairs were left over from my very first house I bought in my 20’s. I loved primitive design (like Old Sturbridge Village style) and this dining room set was my first large purchase as an “adult!” This dining room was actually featured in This Old House Magazine a few years back and that was such an amazing experience! You can see that entire photoshoot and dining room makeover here .
Christmas Decorations For The Dining Room
When we decided to change the entire look of the dining room, we purchased the seagrass chairs and white farmhouse table. We kept the dining room hutch (my gram gave it to me) and the chandelier.
We painted the walls Rainwash by Sherwin Williams and swapped out the drapes and rug for something a bit more modern and coastal looking.
Coastal Christmas Decor
If you click through this post, modern farmhouse dining room makeover, you will see the dining room sporting “non” Christmas decor and setup as an everyday dining space.
Christmas decor in the dining room is easy as adding wooden earth tone Christmas trees and a bowl full of ornaments inside a hutch, a Christmas throw pillow on a chair and ornaments on the table adds a simple beach theme while keeping the design classic.
Simple Christmas decorations to your dining room can be sea glass clear vases, a burlap table runner, a wooden sleigh filled with white, blue and earth toned ornaments and a decorated coastal Christmas tree.
Using leftover Christmas tree decorations, I opted to fill the wooden sleigh to create a coastal centerpiece. Click through this post, DIY coastal Christmas centerpiece for a table to see all the details.
I love how the sleigh from HomeGoods looks filled with shells, starfish and white ornaments.
Coastal Christmas Tree Decorations
Christmas table centerpieces can vary small boxwood tiny trees (like this one in our Christmas kitchen), a bowl filled with ornaments, a poinsettia, a collection of small wooden trees and candles or a simple sleigh filled with pinecones.
The bow on the Christmas tree is made from extra wide burlap which you can purchase on Amazon. I love how the light brown burlap looks with the blue and white ornaments.

The dining room looks just a wonderful as the other rooms! I didn’t think I would like the coastal look but, you made is look gorgeous. You cannot go wrong with that blue you chose or the silver, sand, and white. TFS.
Thank you! Yes this is my first time decorating a Coastal tree. I am kinda digging it!!! ha
Hey there! Where is your chandelier from??
It’s old and from Home Depot like 10 years ago! 🙂
Gorgeous room and tree. TFS
Absolutely beautiful Coastal Themed Room Jess! And that bow! Lol!!! I have to agree. My mom makes a mean bow! Wish I had that talent as well!
Thank you Nicole!!
I just love your coastal dining room. I live in Florida and am working on my coastal tree. I have the same basic color scheme white, silver, blue. I have lots of starfish, sand dollars and some shells. I needed some new ornaments this year since I went from a 7 ft. to a 9 ft. tree. Thanks for the ideas. I did find some at Kirklands. I also loved the rope as garland idea and picked some up at Home Depot. I wish I could find the sleigh at Homegoods, but mine did not have it. That made such a wonderful table centerpiece and I already have tons of things I could fill it with. So glad I found your site! Thanks for the inspiration!
Thank you Lea Anne! You could always fill a bowl too for a centerpiece or even a wooden box or basket!!
Your dining room looks amazing! May I ask where your chandelier is from?
Thank you ! It’s actually 10+ years old and from Home Depot! 🙂
I’m all about red for Christmas, but that is one GORGEOUS Christmas tree!
Thank you Sue!
Could you tell me the wall color (greenish/blueish)? Thank you!
It’s rainwashed by Sherwin-Williams 🙂
I love it!! Where did you get your Dinning chairs from? I’ve been looking for those everywhere.
Thank you! They are from Wayfair. Here is my affiliate link to the chairs:) http://rstyle.me/n/b54ijvxqin
