Christmas, Home Tour, Winter

Christmas Home Tour Blog Hop {the kitchen}

Friends!

I feel so honored that you decided to stop by my little blog today! Being part of this wonderful group of bloggers to share a bit of our Christmas homes with you. It’s so fun to meet new faces or welcome some new…so whatever category you might fall into…WELCOME!

Be sure to check out the beautiful home tours located at the bottom on this page.

Today I would like to share with you my Christmas kitchen.

The kitchen is the heart of our home… basically everything happens here… from food prep to breakfasts, homework, entertaining and even teachable moments for our little ones.

Above the kitchen is my DIY dropcloth Christmas tree sign. I’m working on a tutorial for that one, because I created it a few years ago.

Adding a little bit of faux greenery to this space as well as woods and a pop of red here and there made this space a festive yet functional workspace.

This cute crochet stocking garland was one I found at Micheal’s Craft Store last year. And the bell garland is from my December Root & Roam box. They highlight this monthly calendar and menu of the week chalkboard.

A staple in my Christmas kitchen has to be a hot cocoa station…we are not coffee drinkers, but man ohhhh man do we love our hot Chocolate!

And of course I have to add a bit of whimsy with this little antique Christmas elf (or like we call them Denmark “Nisse” and his little ceramic porridge bowl!

Next is the China Hutch…one of my favorites to decorate for the holiday. I went really neutral this year as I switched out my blue and white dishes to these everyday white ware.

We use these a lot! It took my entire family forever to not open the old cabinet where these dishes used to be, lol! Do you ever do that? Move your main dishes around? Well it set this entire family in confusion for weeks and we all would chuckle when someone forgot the dishes new home! 😂

Also I suggest that if you have little Christmas ornaments that you only have a few of or even one of, they can make perfect little decorations for mini Vignettes throughout your home. I did this with some of my mercury glass ornaments.

Well let’s be honest, I dont have that many and the ones I have are so very unique that I just love to display them separate from everything. One day I would love to have a large collection of these beauties.

A few little gift cards, some Noel ribbon and the pinecone mercury glass ornament are all from one of my favorite small shops White & Fig

Well my friends, here is my view right now, 9 pm… of my messy kitchen after an evening of entertaining 16 sweet little girls for a Christmas party that was full of hot chocolate, treats and a service project of tying quilts for those in need at our local hospital. There was lots of giggles, laughter, and fun to be had tonight with these darling beautiful girls, and well as some of the kindest grown up ladies who helped put this all together. This is what this Christmas kitchen looks like most of the time during these holidays.

Messy…but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
