Christmas in the Kitchen

This year I enjoyed putting Christmas in the kitchen!

A white kitchen with a rolling island and a floral centerpiece on the island.

Hello friends and welcome to our home as I start to share it all decorated for the Christmas season… It’s hard to believe it is that time already, but it is! And today I am honored to be joining Kristen from Ella Claire as this tour is part of the Seasons of Home Holiday Decor Series!

A side view of the rolling island with the floral centerpiece in a bowl, plus bowls under the island.

The kitchen is one of my favorite rooms in our home and thus makes getting ready for Christmas that much more fun! This year we are a bit in-between renovations, so I chose to keep things simple and fresh (which is the direction I am going in general this season).

The most extravagant decor I used here was the stunning floral centerpiece ;)…I love using bowls on islands or tables, as their profile is nice and low, so that you can still function around it with your everyday activities!

White flowers in a bowl and greenery on the island.

I grabbed whatever pretty white florals Trader Joes had and went to arranging! I made sure to incorporate some lovely green foliage as well (some even from our backyard trees).

Next, I hung faux evergreen garland around the doorway that connects between our sunroom and kitchen. I love this easy addition and the impact it makes without a lot of fuss!

A wooden bowl with glitzy ornaments in it on the shelf in kitchen.

To make things a bit more festive, I threw some glitzy ornaments into a small wooden bowl that I had sitting on our counter.

Again, this wasn’t a difficult thing to do, but the detail it adds to the space can’t be beat!

A glass jar filled with Christmas cookie cutters.

And of course I had to utilize my large glass container for housing beloved cookie cutter shapes. We use these so often throughout the season that it is nice to have them accessible.

A green Christmas wreath, bells and a basket hanging on a coat rack in the kitchen.

Across the way, we have our wooden kitchen rack where I took full advantage of the hook/wall space. Here is where I hung a cheerful letter board with brassy holiday bells.

I think that the evergreen wreaths may be my favorite to use in the kitchen! This basic one brings the pop of green to the space that I have been craving.

And more carefully placed ornaments…

A very small Christmas tree on a shelf above the sink.

I kept the heart of our kitchen pretty quiet this time around, other than a tiny faux tree. I think it still steals the show though ;), haha.

It is amazing how a space can come together with some special little touches here and there!

Now it’s time for lots of baking, memory making and jolly tunes! I hope this inspires you as you get your homes ready for the season and thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Everything looks beautiful and elegant. A small touch of red would do the trick! Love your simplistic style!

    1. Melanie thank you very much! The bowl was actually copper from Target and I think they still have them. I ended up using their gold spray paint to give this a more brass look, so unfortunately it wouldn’t be food safe, but I still love it for decor!
