Christmas 2021

Seasons greetings and welcome to our home for the holidays! If you’ve seen previous holiday seasons here at the home of Tina’s Chic Corner, then many of the decorations might look familiar to you. I like to re-use my decorations in different ways and in different rooms in order to give the items new life. Plus, I have fun creating new looks. One of the reasons why I start decorating the week before Thanksgiving is because I like to move bits and bobs around until it feels right. The entry way greets you with a warm winter feel. I used …

Christmas Dining Room 2021

I couldn’t be more excited to get back to holiday hosting this year so I decorated the dining room with a cozy elegant natural look. I kept the color scheme neutral with whites and greenery, but I added a pop of color using my mom’s ornaments. They were hers when she was a kid so they have a special spot to shine. I seem to drop an ornament or two every year when I’m decorating the tree so adding delicate ornaments to a bowl is a great way to showcase them and to hopefully avoid breaking any. Cozy means lots …

Christmas 2020

Merry Christmas! I usually start decorating our home during Thanksgiving week, but this year I started even earlier. Maybe right after Halloween?

I was inspired by this Santa and so I thought I’d go just go with the flow and move him here (and hope that maybe my husband wouldn’t notice Santa made an appearance mid November). Since our dining room has become puzzle central and we’re not entertaining …

Seasons greetings! I’m the kind of person who starts listening to Christmas music right after Halloween. (Don’t judge.) I also like to start decorating the home for Christmas around Thanksgiving. Since Thanksgiving was late this year, I pulled out the bins the week before Thanksgiving. My husband wasn’t exactly thrilled because he prefers his holidays to be in the normal order. I have a process that takes time, so I wanted to get started. I like to decorate my home a little differently every year for Christmas and I’m a visual person so I’ll probably decorate an area two or …

Christmas Dining Room 2019 and Tips for Easy Entertaining

This year’s dining room is probably my favorite.  I lined up a collection of trees on the buffet and most of them light up, which adds a warm ambiance at night.  When I use a lot of decorations for the buffet, I like to have a simple center piece on the dinner table.  I used my favorite table runner and lined the center with a variety of sizes of candles.  It’s so simple but I absolutely love the way it came out. I love to entertain during the holidays.  There’s something wonderful about being surrounded by friends, family, and good …
