Im back with the second Holiday tour of the season and today I am featuring my festive Christmas kitchen. I love adding cheerful touches that speak to the holiday without creating too much clutter. After all, its the most used space in the home…esp during the Christmas season.
I’ve joined a few of my favorite blogger friends for a little Christmas fun. We’ve all linked our tours together to provide you with loads of inspiration of all different styles and beauty. You can find links to their tours at the bottom of this post.
A festive Christmas Kitchen with fresh greens and pops of blue
Creating a festive kitchen doesn’t mean you have to load up your counters with Christmas statues and cover every surface with garland and beads. In my opinion, a festive kitchen is created with seasonal foods, some fresh plants, and a touch of glittery shimmer. Some of my favorite places to add some holiday interest are actually not on the coulters at all. Think focal points like range hoods, windows, and barstool backs.
A simple mixed green wreath on my kitchen hood brings some color up high. I added the same blueberry sprays that I used on my living room mantel. You can click here to see my holiday living room tour. You’ll see that everything is cohesive and flows seamlessly from room to room.
A few live branches are soaking in the sink, soon to be added to my front door, and 2 tiny Christmas trees flank my kitchen window. I added some shimmer to my black windows with 2 stands of my favorite mercury glass garland. I’ve had this garland for years and have used it in so many different ways. Since the days are shorter and the nights are longer, the extra glow of Christmas lights really adds to the mood.
My barstool backs each got a pop of green. I made these inexpensive mini wreaths from two-$3 garland strands. I simply cut each garland into 2 ft lengths, hooped them, and secured them to the backs with twisty ties. I finished the look with a blue silky bow.
Holiday kitchen vignettes
Vignettes are my favorite way to add a little merry touch to my counter tops. Vignettes are small groupings of assorted objects that create a focal point. I love using pieces that would naturally be in a kitchen like cutting boards, utensils, fresh fruits, cake stands, pots, and dishes. Then when you add seasonal flowers or greens, and other decor it just makes sense. Here are a few examples in my Christmas kitchen.
I hope this simple kitchen tour helps you create a cozy and festive Christmas kitchen in your own home. Be sure to check out my holiday living room tour to see how it all fits together.
