Dining rooms/areas during the holidays...
I was hoping people could share pictures or ideas about their dining rooms/areas, during the holidays. Do you decorate? Do you entertain lots of family/friends? Does you dining room always seat many people or do you move to another area for the holidays?
My mom just got a new dining table that seats 8! We've been pushing tables together for years and this is the first time we'll all be sitting down at one big table in at least a decade. She found a beautiful table on Craigslist and it came with 6 chairs.
So, we're looking for ideas how to use it for holidays and how to keep it from overwhelming the kitchen when there's not a need for seating 6-8. She has a big kitchen (12' x 20') and the table will be on one end, by the windows.
Thanks in advance! I'll try to take a picture, when she'll let me (LOL) since she's still moving furniture into other rooms to make enough space :)
