Christmas in the Kitchen


Happy Tuesday friends! Are you all fully into the Christmas swing? I know I am! There is Christmas music playing anytime we are at home, and the tree is constantly lit. It's such a beautiful time of year!

I've added just a few Christmas touches to the kitchen. Nothing too fancy, but I tried to bring in some natural elements and some sparkle to dress it up a bit.


I'm always so thrilled to have these shelves my father-in-law installed for me. I have no idea how I would decorate the kitchen without them. There's really no other space to place anything. The shelves make the kitchen for me! The base of the decor is the white serveware I already had, then I just added some greenery, glass balls and decorative items. I brought in the soft sage color that matches my antique scale (and my KitchenAid mixer, which sits across the room).



Antique zinc pitch pots look wonderful holding some fresh greenery. The zinc chalkboard reads "Joy to the World" but I've found it's hard to read unless you're at a certain angle.


I've had this little Christmas house for several years, and picked it up at Dillon's. I've seen very pretty ones at TJ Maxx the last few years too.


This little bird under glass is one of my favorite ornaments. He gets a place of honor on a cake stand this year, instead of residing on the tree.


I think the easiest thing about Christmas decorating is adding fresh greens. It instantly feels festive!


This little pine tree sits in a white serving bowl atop our fridge. The bow is just a ripped piece of drop cloth left over from our stockings.



Our eating area ready for the season.




I don't think I've show the above angle yet. The doorway leads to our hall, and the door shown is to the laundry closet. Love the "groceries" sign above the entrance.


A simple Christmas kitchen. How have you decorated?
