GATHER ROUND: Dazzling Dining Rooms & Perfect Tables

I can't think of a better time than now, during this holiday season, to feature the dining room.  For many of us, our dining table gets little use, except for during the holidays.  Whether you are entertaining or having a festive family meal, the dining room table is always the star.  I just love entertaining in the dining room and setting a beautiful tablescape.  Unfortunately, in my current home, I don't have a lot of space to work with, but as long as the table is the appropriate size for your space, it will always work.  Don't worry all my big city, tiny apartment readers.  I have some great examples for you!

But first, these spaces below are wonderful examples of a dining room fit for a delicious holiday dinner or a fabulous cocktail party.

For those of you with limited space, a small dining room or just a portion of another room can still be so chic!
