The Obama’s love their dog Bo, who joined their family shortly after they moved into the White House.  Their Christmas decor for 2012 includes not just one but SIX hand-made decorative replicas of Bo! If you were to be so lucky as to go for a stroll through the White House this Christmas, you’d never know where Bo would turn up.  Incorporating Bo into their Christmas decor shows the Obama’s love their their furry family member, and their sense of whimsy and humor.  This version of Bo, shown above,  is crafted from plastic pom-poms!

The intimate family dining room at the White House where just the family gathers. The Obamas have been criticized by the opposing party this year for putting up too many Christmas trees, however, there are only a few more than the Bush’s typically had when they were in the White House.

Christmas Decor Ideas - Dining Table with Candles and Ball Ornaments

We love simple but creative Christmas decor ideas like this one. A row of overturned large clear glass water goblets is placed up the center of the dining table.  An assortment of smallish purple, pink, and cream colored glass ball ornaments is placed within each overturned glass. Positioned on the top of each glass (really the bottom of each glass…), a small ivory pillar candle. Its a clean, modern, linear look, and really, really pretty.

Modern Christmas Decor Ideas – Dining Room with White Christmas Tree

A gorgeous setting is created in this modern dining room,  decorated for Christmas. Situated near the dining room table, a white Christmas tree, illuminated by clear lights, nestles into the corner, decorated with blue and gold decorations which coordinate perfectly with the large piece of blue and artwork handing on the wall behind it.

The white and gold theme carries through to the the dining table decorations. All set for Christmas dinner, the table is ready with white china at each place setting, a grouping of seven modern geometric crystal candle holders of assorted heights, holding white taper candles. And a scattering of tinted gold glass votive holders with white votive candles aglow inside.

A stunning example of clean, simple Modern Christmas Decor Ideas.

Christmas Decor Ideas – Entry Table

Christmas Decor Ideas - Entry Table

Christmas Decor Ideas – An Entry Table decorated for Christmas with snowman ornaments in three different sizes, a pine branch, a miniature (very miniature!) table-top tree in a silver urn, decorative acorns, flocked pine cones, and ball ornaments. Winding its way through this festive display, a sting of clear mini lights causes the glitter on the ornaments to sparkle and shimmer, and brings the little scene to life.

On the right hand side of the table, a slate colored urn  holds real spruce braches, silver sparkle twigs, and pre-lit branches with clear lights.

Cozy Christmas decor ideas like this one on an entry table offer a wonderful welcome for guests at the entry to your home during the Holiday Season.
