Morning Sunshine in the Dining Room

Hello everyone!

This weekend is going to be beautiful here in Georgia.  No more rain and lots of sunshine and warm temps are finally here!  It will be a busy weekend here too.  Tomorrow, we'll be celebrating my youngest son's 14th birthday.  We'll also be celebrating Mother's Day (early) with my MIL.  On Sunday, my husband is planning on grilling all day (which I'll share with you).  It is one of our favorite things to eat and it has to cook all day.  Yum!  Be on the lookout for that soon.  

In the meantime, I wanted to share some of these rays of sunshine shining in my dining room today.  It gets the most sun of all of my rooms.  



In the center of my dining table, I placed this wooden pedestal (that I finally found).  I placed some white hydrangea flowers in a glass jar and voila!  Instant centerpiece!





I moved my glass demijohn crate in here too.


And there's one thing I can count on every morning..............


This is where you'll find Max.  He loves lying on the warm floor in the sunlight.  

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by.

The wooden pedestal is gorgeous, and I've been looking at white flower arrangements just this morning as I want something similar for our bedroom - love your hydrangeas!

Doreen@househoneys said...

Max reminds me of my granddog...always sleeping lol. Come to think of it, so does hubby!

I have some pieces with the same kind of wood as your pedestal, but none as unique and useful as that!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Have a great weekend with your celebrations....I have that same pedestal and love it...it is actually on my dining room table too!...Beautiful room Kelly!

I have seen wooden pedestals for display, but wouldn't know where to look for one. Yours looks lovely.

foxandfinchantiques said...

Good Morning Sunshine! I bet you feel like being in the dining room in the morning. I know I would probably have the table covered with the project of the day. Your home is lovely and I was pleased to see the base you are using on the dining room table. I have a distressed green painted (primitive) in my shop and in my head I thought someone could use it the way you used yours. ~Ginene

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

That wooden pedestal is great and I love the chair slips and pillows you have in there. Can't wait to hear what your hubby is grilling! We've got perfect grilling weather right now. :) Oh BTW, I couldn't help myself...I binge watched the entire Aussie version! I personally think the American one is MUCH better. There's much more character development in our version. And I don't know why in the world my sis-in-law loved the house so much in the Aussie version. I didn't like it at all. Lol!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Your dining room looks so pretty Kelly...enjoy your weekend!

Cynthia said...

Becca said...

I love the sunlight streaming in (obviously, your sweet pup does, too)! Your new centerpiece is awesome ... always looks beautiful. Have fun celebrating with family (pretty sure I can smell what's cooking on the grill from here ... jealous)!

Babs R said...

Your wooden pedestal is a GREAT piece. Have a great weekend. We have sunshine!

Ron said...

I LOVE the wooden pedestal and the entire hydrangea arrangement. Enjoy!

The centerpiece is gorgeous, Kelly! Max looks very content! My puppy likes to lay on the couch in the living room in the sun.
