Elegant Dining in Brumby Hall

Welcome to the 175th Tablescape Thursday!

Early this morning I posted a tour of the downstairs of beautiful Brumby Hall.  If you missed that tour, you’ll find it here: Brumby Hall.  For Tablescape Thursday, I’m taking you into the dining rooms.  Yep, Brumby Hall has two dining rooms, probably due to its function as a special events facility now.

This dining area was at the very back of the home.  Isn’t the chandelier gorgeous?  I loved the simplicity of the three hurricanes down the center of the table.

Christmas Tablescape in Historic Brumby Hall


The salad plates depict the Twelve Days of Christmas.  This one is “nine ladies dancing.”  Does anyone recognize the pattern?

Love all the detailed carving on this beautiful sideboard.


This room had built in china storage.


A closer view…


Another beautiful chest…


Toward the front of the home you’ll find a second dining room.


Here we see another stunning chandelier.


Another beautiful centerpiece…


Take a peek at the other beautiful furnishings in this room.  You often see these tall mirrors in entrance halls of historic homes.  This one was lovely here in the dining room.


The room was decorated for Christmas since this tour was in early December.


The dining room had its own Christmas tree.


If you missed it, you can tour the downstairs of Brumby Hall , HERE  and upstairs HERE.

    These dining rooms are elegant. WoW! Those chandeliers are breathtaking! I enjoyed the simplicity of the natural pine boughs and berries for the holiday decor, allowing the furniture pieces, themselves be the shining jewels that they are. Thank you for sharing this lovely home tour for our viewing pleasure…and for hoting this weekly meme!
