This year I enjoyed putting Christmas in the kitchen!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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…
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! Please make sure to visit my sweet friends below and all the beautiful things they are sharing!

Penny Thomas says
Everything looks beautiful and elegant. A small touch of red would do the trick! Love your simplistic style!
Penny so glad you like it, thanks so much!
Love your simple, elegant style and I love your hammered metal bowl, can you tell me where you bought it?
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!
Jane McDermott says
Love the green and white. Where did you get the ornaments in the bowls?
Jane thank you so much! Those are shatterproof ones from Hobby Lobby and they are great!
Daniel thank you so much! I appreciate that!
