Stirring Up Some Old-Fashioned Christmas Cheer

Hello everyone!
 
I'm happy to finally reveal my kitchen decorated for Christmas!  I still have a few things I'm waiting on to arrive in the mail that I want to add in here, but for now I think I'm ready to show you what I've done so far.
 
The first thing you'll notice is that this room is a bit of a departure from the rest of the house, which is decorated in soft neutral colors for Christmas.  I wanted to add a little fun to my kitchen this year, so red seemed the perfect color. 



 
 
 
A bit of greenery and pops of red accent my white dishes.
 
 
 

 
 
Coffee station ready
 
 
Our newly made gingerbread house.
 
 
 
 

 
A little chalkboard humor for the holidays.
 

 
 Our dog's stocking.
 
 
 
An olive bucket is filled with Christmas greenery and cotton branches.
 
 
A red and white snowflake runner completes the table.
 
 
 
 


Jute upholstery webbing adorns the wreath.

 
 
 
 
 
So that about wraps up my kitchen!  I'll be sure to post the additions I make once the other items arrive.
 
Now, that the decorating is done, I can begin to bake and share some yummy recipes with you!
 
Thanks for stopping by!
 
~ Kelly ~

You are so good at adding in all the little ideas to make your home look festive, but my favorite is the chalkboard humor. I might copy that.

Just stunning christmas decorations. I love the wreath with the burlap. It is beautiful.

Linda said...

Beautiful - but then we didn't expect anything less!

I had a TON of that jute upholstering ribbon! Louis Dean's father in law was an upholstering genius! Too bad they are at home 250 miles away! I'll tuck this idea in a corner of my brain and use it next year!!

Love the quiet peaceful charm that is your home!!
