Antique Buffet Decorated for Christmas

Christmas time is my favorite time of year, and every year I decorate the buffet in my dining room with fun Christmas decor. Last year I had a small tree on top of my buffet, but this year I didn't want to venture that deep into our storage shed to get it! Besides, I found a cool Santa mailbox and a peppermint cabinet to display on my buffet instead...

This year we are having a Seahawks themed Christmas in the living room with our Seahawks tree and Advent Calendar, but the dining room has a red, white, and teal theme. The teal tinsel garland was on a Christmas tree, but I found dark blue garland to use instead, which goes better with a Seahawks themed tree. So I decided to decorate my buffet with the tinsel and other Christmas items.

I was sooooooo excited when I found this peppermint cabinet during a shopping trip. I had been searching for the pumpkin spice cabinet, but I found this one instead. I knew it would be perfect for my Christmasy Rae Dunn Mugs. I also have some Rae Dunn tea light holders in there.

I was also happy to find this Letters for Santa Mailbox. And Pepper, our Elf on the Shelf, is back! I also have my Rae Dunn Nutcracker Dish on display.

I added a floral pick featuring a red bird to the top of my Birdhouse Scentsy Warmer. I have to remember to take it off before I turn the warmer on again!

This teal tray, the Marilyn Monroe alarm clock, black phone, and teal lantern are always on my buffet. I added the tree and the Rae Dunn tea light holders with red candles to make it more Christmasy. 

During a search for Rae Dunn Christmas items, I found this Rae Dunn 'Tis the Season planter. I kept the ribbon and Rae Dunn tag on it because it looked like a gift! And I filled it with red and teal ornaments. I added some mitten ornaments and a bell to the side of the planter.

I also have this Nativity TV on the buffet. It lights up and plays music.

I added little houses in random spots on the buffet, and I have a knit hat ornament and knit mitten ornaments hanging from the door pulls. I think my buffet is ready for Christmas!
