Nothing gets in the mood for the Christmas season like a decorative refreshment in the dining room. Warm and cozy for the family to enjoy dinner and each other’s company. Bryan Fiveash from DIY dad and his family decorated their dining room with the help of The Home Depot. See how he overcame this style challenge below.
Since summer comes to an end every year, I always look forward to the change in season. In my area, cooler temperatures and falling leaves make me think about hot chocolate and possible snowflakes. I am happy that this time is coming again!
For my Home Depot Style Challenge, I want to show how my wife and I have embellished our dining room with a mix of the latest product offerings from The Home Depot and some of my own DIY projects.
For the past few months, traveling and in-store shopping hasn’t been an option for our family, but that hasn’t slowed my DIY projects down a bit! It also didn’t affect me getting the products I needed for this style challenge. As always, The Home Depot has everything you need to decorate your home with the latest in seasonal decor and super convenient ways to buy it.

It’s easy to be green
Our goal for this style challenge was to combine the cold of the winter season with the warmth and comfort of our dining room which is a primary family destination in our home. With this LED-lit artificial wreath with micro-dots we added a touch of green and this Norwood fir 9 ft. garland. The branches on both look so realistic it’s hard to believe they’re artificial! The wreath also has a timer for easy on and off. My wife added bows to the wreaths she made herself.
We purchased an additional garland to accompany an easy DIY project pictured above. This is a protocol that is equipped with several LED tea light candles. The project is so simple that all you need is a drill and a spade. I love the warm glow of these tea lights and the soft flickering of the LED flame! These decorations look great on my DIY wood and concrete pallet buffet table, which also regularly features my wife’s delicious cupcakes.
The shelf below shows some Behrens 2 qt. and Behrens 5 qt. Galvanized steel buckets full of artificial snowballs and lit with Home Accents Holiday mesh lighting. To top it off, my wife added some ribbon decorations back to the buckets, as she did with the wreaths and our candlesticks below.
I see snowflakes!
We have expanded our theme for the winter season with a metal snowflake garland and a couple of snowflake blackboards. Their rustic look is the perfect complement to those rustic white pallet wood shutters.
The pleasant glow of LED wax candles
In addition to these LED tea lights, I also bought these LED wax votive candles that can be operated by remote control. Like the tea lights, the votive candles emit a warm light with a slight flicker in the LED flame. They also give off a subtle vanilla scent.
When deciding where to put these votive candles in our dining room, my wife and I came up with two more DIY projects – a centerpiece made from wooden planters for our table and pallet wood chandeliers. Isn’t that LifeProof luxury vinyl plank floor I installed almost a year ago and still look good?
Cool and cozy thanks to The Home Depot
Finally we added new glasses and cutlery for our dining table. All of the seasonal decorating products I have bought from The Home Depot really help add to the cooler temperatures. But they also give our dining room a cozy atmosphere.
Hope our dining room remodel has provided you with ideas and inspiration! Don’t forget to visit HomeDepot.com for the latest and greatest seasonal decorations.
