10 Minute Decorating in the Kitchen

Quick and easy kitchen decorating ideas - love the collection of cake stands on display kellyelko.com

Most people stock up on bread and milk before a blizzard.

I stock up on fresh flowers since I knew I’d be trapped under two feet of snow.

Priorities people!

Make your kitchen sink a happy place with some fun accessories (love the paper towel holder)! kellyelko.com

I wonder how many hours of our lives have been spent in front of the kitchen sink?

As I wait patiently for the snow to melt, I can dream of spring while I’m getting dish pan hands.

I’m all about surrounding myself with functional things in the kitchen. But functional doesn’t have to mean boring.


This green cake stand reminds me of vintage jadeite and it’s the perfect way to elevate a favorite plant. Is there anything better than the smell of hyacinth?

Even the lowly paper towel can look fabulous if it’s stored in an old ice bucket.

Great idea for a paper towel holder - a vintage ice bucket! Love these quick and easy kitchen decorating ideas kellyelko.com

I love monochromatic flower arrangements and mixed tulips with ranunculus in an old silver champagne bucket.

Hands off my mug. I love keeping my collection of Rae Dunn mugs on display and they make tea time much more fun (especially with my Pug in a Mug tea infuser).

  1. You’re my kind of girl! When a hurricane is coming I rush to the nursery knowing all the flowers there will be destroyed and buy them out. I keep them in the garage to plant after the storm. ☺️ It’s so barren ugly following the storm and planting colorful flowers is affirming of new growth/life. BTW the link for your blog on some of the other participating blogs is linking elsewhere, not to you.

  2. Yep…I am with you Kelly…before a snow storm, I head to Trader Joe’s to stock up on pretty flowers that keep me smiling during the storm!….then I go to for the eggs and milk…Love your kitchen…it is always a very happy place!
