Welcome to our Christmas kitchen! There is lots of holiday decor in this space. We will spend lots of time here in the next few weeks, baking cookies, preparing holiday meals and just hanging out as a family.
I added a couple of preserved boxwood wreaths (from Target) to the front of our glass cabinet doors with some red and white gingham ribbon.
It is always fun to decorate the mantel hood over the stove. This year I used a plate my mom gave me (from Macy's), a couple of boxwood topiaries and our "believe" banner from HomeGoods a couple of years back.
We originally purchased the candle chandelier (seen over our island in the picture below) from the outdoor patio department at Lowes several years ago. This year, we hung it over our kitchen island and added some greenery along with red candles. It makes the whole room feel so festive.
When we have guests over during the holiday season, we remove the teal bar stools and create a buffet on this island. I added a command adhesive hook so we can add a wreath.
I added some garland and mercury glass ornaments to the chandelier over our dining table.
I made the red and white check curtains from tablecloths for the front window last year (more about them here). This year, I hung them in the dining area. We hang the Christmas cards we receive on the garland and on these french doors. By the time Christmas day arrives, these doors will be filled with the faces of our family and friends... one of my favorite parts of the Christmas season!
We add a new kitchen themed ornament (purchased at Sur La Table's after Christmas sale) to our small kitchen tree each year. We might need a bigger tree soon.
Some fresh garland and more mercury glass ornaments decorate our kitchen windows along with the cookie cutter wreath that I made a couple of weeks ago.
I painted the tree farm signs last year for our entryway, and this year they are decorating our newly painted hutch.
Next stop on the tour of our holiday decor will be the other side of this space, our living room. I hope you come back to see more!
