I am so excited to show you my Christmas decorated kitchen today!
I never really have done any Christmas decorating in the kitchen other than a seasonal towel and maybe some kind of display behind the sink. But this year I was going to go all out and I couldn’t wait!
Because when you kitchen has gone from this…
to THIS, it deserves some Christmas decorating! You can see the process and links to all the steps in our kitchen makeover in this post.
So let’s start the tour with the breakfast room… This is the view from the living room in to the breakfast area.
The table is adorned with a plaid Christmas tablecloth from the BHG collection at Walmart, green mason jars and fun red/white striped straws, some placemats from IKEA, and my Winterberry Christmas dishes.
The painted mason jar centerpiece is a DIY project – tutorial here. And those cute little stocking and napkins I picked up thrifting.
I added some free tree cuttings in the chandelier and hung a thrift store mirror from the panty door. Since I used my red JOY letters in my Christmas bedroom this year, I made a new set of red letters spelling NOEL this year (just paper mache letters from Hobby Lobby spray painted with Rustoleum Red spray paint)
I love the light that comes through the bay windows in this room during the day.
Then stepping into the kitchen, I had fun adding some Christmas touches! I decided to do a card display on the cabinets this year – we have just started receiving cards in the mail and as I get photo cards I will probably replace most of these with photos cards – those are my favorite. I just taped strips of red ribbon to the back of the doors with some clear packing tape and secure the cards with clothespins. Easy, quick, and inexpensive.
My open cabinets already had some red and green dishes in them so I just added some sprigs of greenery.
I found this vintage remake of a candy dispenser at a yard sale this past year and moved it into the kitchen this year with some little bottle brush trees and a little deer I grabbed from my nephews toys. The deer has since been removed since I was getting asked multiple times a day when he could come out and play again. LOL!
These wreaths were a DIY project almost 5 years ago and I love using them every year. I adore them hung over the cabinet doors (again I just taped the ribbon on the back of the cabinet doors). Some greenery and Christmas mugs added to our coffee station and it was complete.
This display of items all found at Goodwill fills the area behind the sink.
I didn’t want too much clutter as the kitchen gets used so much during the holidays for baking and cookie decorating! But I couldn’t resist adding a hot chocolate station that will stay here throughout the winter.
It makes grabbing a cup of hot cocoa easy and looks festive too!
Here’s a closer look at the open cabinets.
Some simple Christmas ornaments and cookie cutters in a pretty tiered server grace the stove when it is not in use.
On this counter I just added a little tree, a treat jar from my Winterberry collection, and a set of salt and pepper shakers.
Aren’t those snowman cute? I enjoyed pulling out some of my Winterberry collection to use and display this year. My collection was built over several years getting pieces each Christmas as gifts from family when we first got married.
I saw this idea I think over at Thrifty Décor Chick and I couldn’t resist adding some cookie cutters tied up with bakery twine to my glass canisters! And yes here in the south, tea bags go with the baking staples because sweet tea is a Southern staple!
Oh how I love the simple and inexpensive updates we did in our kitchen (new countertops we installed ourselves, painted cabinets, new cabinet pulls, and a DIY beadboard backsplash) – I truly enjoy and love this room now!
And I am loving it all decked out for Christmas.
