We’re so happy to be sharing our Christmas kitchen today for the Simply Christmas Home Tour!
If you’re coming over from Decor Gold Designs, I’m so glad you’re here!
Our kitchen is a room that usually gets neglected when it comes to Christmas decorating, which doesn’t make a lot of sense, because we spend so much time in this room.
So this year I decided I wanted to add some holiday touches to the kitchen and breakfast room areas.
Family and friends always come in our back door which opens into the kitchen and breakfast room, so it’s usually the first room that’s seen.
It definitely needed some Christmas cheer!
The french blue commode that sits right inside our back door is so easy to decorate and I usually switch out the decor seasonally.
It sits on a wall between the dining room and the family room and it’s definitely the focal point in this space.
The commode is such a fabulous color of blue, and it inspired me to stick with the blue theme for the holiday decor.
I started out by moving two old stone angels to the center of the commode and surrounded them with garland…..
…….and added embellishments of blue ornaments, dried hydrangeas, and fresh clippings from the yard.
Adding the sparkly gold trees were the icing on the cake!
Our old farm table, that belonged to my grandparents, sits in the breakfast nook in front of a curved bank of windows that overlook our patio.
I keep an antique dough bowl displayed on the table most of the time and I just change out the contents seasonally.
It was quick and easy to fill the dough bowl with moss balls in different sizes, tuck in some greenery and blue ornaments, and done!
I have boxwood wreaths all through the house, so I added a couple of small ones to the dry bar….
…..one tied with luscious blue velvet ribbon.
About twenty five years ago, I found some grapevine trees at a outdoor nursery and fell in love with their rustic look.
I ended up purchasing them in several different sizes, and every year at Christmas, I will pull them out, adorn them with white lights, and place them throughout the house.
They add such a simple look, and they work year after year.
I placed three of the grapevine trees on the kitchen counters, along with an old silver mini tree that I’ve had for years.
I placed it in one of my most recent finds, a large French mustard pot.
Another recent find was a fabulous antique French milk pitcher with “Lait” printed on the front.
It’s holding a simple arrangement of clippings from the yard.
Standing at the base of the sparkling trees is a precious lamb.
I love lambs and sheep because of their spiritual symbology, and this precious fella is the perfect adornment for a holiday vignette!
I love the simple Christmas touches in the kitchen and breakfast room.
It looks so festive now and we’re enjoying seeing the white lights glowing through the windows!
Rumor has it that there’s a sweet little girl in our house looking for Santa Paws……..
…..Miss RubyLou claims to have been a very good girl this year, albeit a bit precocious.
What do you think……..will Santa Paws find her?
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little tour of our Christmas kitchen!
