Christmas in the Kitchen

I’ve cleaned the cookie crumbs from the counter and swept up Sushi’s dog hairs just so I could bring you Christmas in my kitchen.

Hopefully, you’ve taken my main Christmas Home Tour HERE but if you missed it, make sure to check it out.

Now let’s get cooking and check out my Christmas kitchen decorations.

In my ongoing KISS quest (keep things simple stupid), I sprinkled a few festive touches around the kitchen.

How fun is this huge red metal bow. It reminds me of red solo cups!

My tip to make your kitchen look more high end, take the tile up to the ceiling. I’m still loving this chevron marble tile I chose over eight years ago.

This tiered tray serves double duty as an easy place to grab often used things plus it makes a perfect display for my salt and pepper shakers. My girls painted the snowmen years ago.

Obviously, I’ll never win Cupcake Wars. I used one of my favorite new cedar placemats underneath my Trader Joe’s gingerbread chalet.

This vintage cookie jar was on top of my refrigerator when I was growing up. I had to drag a chair over to the fridge and climb on top to be able to reach inside and pull out a cookie.

This little bench separates my kitchen from my family room and I knew just what to do with this trio of bowls when I found them.
