Transform your mobile home dining room for the holidays
Now, when it comes to transforming your mobile home dining room for the holidays, where do you begin? We have some thoughts on that.
We’re going to lay out some ideas for you. And you can watch the transformation take place. Are you on a tight budget? Consider which idea will make the most impact on your dining room and start there. Next year, you can incorporate a second idea and so forth.
At the end of the day, while the transformation is important, it’s the hearts that come together to celebrate that truly make the occasion worth remembering!
Start with that tablecloth
Alright, we all know that the table is the centerpiece of any dining room. It’s where everyone will congregate and it’s where the food will be stationed. (Unless you choose to organize a potluck).
Of course, it makes sense to start with your tablecloth. Whether you’re dealing with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year, get your hands on a tablecloth that fits the overall style of festiveness that you’re embracing.
Some may prefer Halloween to have a chic decor style while others like Christmas with country charm — it’s completely up to you. Just keep your style in mind as you hunt for that ideal tablecloth.
Give your table a centerpiece to talk about
Before you drape a tablecloth over your dining room table and leave it at that, consider what you might like for a centerpiece. Flowers are always a win and so are candles. Be sure to color coordinate so that it complements your tablecloth rather than clashes with it.
Additionally, you can make up some fun place cards, ensuring everyone is seated comfortably and with those you think might click well together. Place cards not only help with the awkward seating conundrum, but they are decorative too. It’s a way to up the classiness of any dining room.
Mix and match
And how about mixing and matching your plates, utensils, napkins, and placemats? The right kind of mixing and matching can bring out a fun design or style look. Try alternating colors or creating patterns with the colors of your placemats and how they change every other seat.
Have fun with it and see what works for your mobile home. It doesn’t have to be over the top. Remember, less is more. But don’t be afraid to try new things. You can always go back and adjust your decor. Nothing is permanent — we’re not talking about painting the walls here!
Change up the wall and shelf decor
This is the time to change things up so you can show off your decorative vibe. If you have holiday-specific artwork, you can hang it up on the wall. Want to put the decorative china out? You can take down those old books and put up the things you want to show off but normally hide in a closet.
It’s your time to shine. Old family pictures and valuables could also make for some great conversation starters.
It’s time to be merry and bright
Now you know how to take your mobile home dining room from “every day” to holiday cheer. You don’t have to spend a fortune — all you need it a little creativity and a bit of design direction. Know what you love and what you don’t love, then work from there.
In no time at all, your mobile home will be looking merry and bright! We wish you the best as you open your mobile home to guests. It can be fun sharing a piece of your home life with others.
