Holiday decorating in the Kitchen

Sometimes…I get something stuck in my mind.

ok…all the time…I get something stuck in my head…

Like red and white. I heart those colors together at Christmas.

I screams tradition…well…more whispers…but you know what I mean.

I loved dressing my white cabinets for Christmas….here is what I pulled together…

Fa la la la la…la la la la… I had most of these decorations from years past.

I did buy 4 sheets of scrapbooking paper to make some fun snowflakes to stick on the cabinets. Easy, cheap and fun! Also used a new product that I will tell you more about in another post. Paper ribbon. Love, love, love.

On the open shelves I used some 2 inch grosgrain ribbon…along with some paper ribbon to dress up the shelves. The lanterns have some garland and berries (just secured on with some floral wire).

Joy to the World….the pretzels look so pretty…(I could go on….you know I could…)

Ok…I’ll stop…now go forth and make some snowflakes.

Your family will love you.

Your friends will just roll their eyes at you…again ;)

They will love you anyway though.

Do you need a kitchen table? Coffeebar in kitchen (kitchen design)

Do you remember last year…..and I told you about my crazy idea to NOT have a kitchen table in my kitchen? (Here is that post)

Well, I just wanted to give you an update on this space….we have come to cherish. It is the favorite spot in our house.

At the end of the day….(when it becomes a wine bar;) we sit and catch up…during the school year the kids sit and read here….in the morning….they check in on the internet before they hop on the bus….I sit here and sip coffee while I plan out my day. It is cozy and comfort…and welcoming…and I love it all.

It is hands-down…the best decision we have every made….to remove the table from the kitchen. The dining room serves a perfect purpose now….for dining. It has really made all the difference. I would encourage you….if you are feeling low on “chill” space…consider this….it will become a favorite space for you too.
