Christmas in the Kitchen

Hello everyone!

I spent almost all weekend finishing up my Christmas decorating.  So, I thought I would share my kitchen with you today.  I did not want to do a lot in here because I'm going with a simple country look this year that doesn't include a lot of fluff.  Also, the kitchen is often in use so I don't have a lot of extra space for the "fluff" anyway.  LOL! 

In the main part of the kitchen, I only added some candy canes, red and white linens, and  pomegranates. 












In the eating area, I went extremely simple in there as well.  A simple wreath hangs in the window.





And paper whites are surrounded by mini crab apples on top of the cabinet.






This year, I'm loving simple things.



Thanks for stopping by!

Lovely Kelly. Plus very simple to undo it when you are ready for that. Just like my unadorned tree:}

A few candy canes and touches of red are all you need to bring a festive look to your kitchen, Kelly. After the holidays we'll all be wishing we kept it simple. I hate packing it all away in January!

Kelly, I love your kitchen!! I like that you use neutral colors so it's easy to incorporate any holiday decor. I have white appliances too, and every time I see your kitchen, it makes me want to paint my cabinets white. I love how yours look. I need to get some of those candy cane sticks...they're my hubby's favorite. :) BTW...I love your coffee, sugar, and tea canisters. :)

I'm so disappointed that I forgot to get some paper whites. Oh well.
It all looks adorable, Kelly. It's amazing what some candy canes in white will do to make it look Christmasy.

Kelly, love your touches of Christmas in your kitchen. Very pretty, love the wreath. I like to keep the kitchen simple because we entertain during Christmas. Well, not this year, LOL.
