Ever since we moved into our new home I’ve had a love/hate relationship with our kitchen. Our new kitchen is the exact opposite of our old kitchen, in both good and bad ways.
- The cabinets are amazing quality but dark wood with a scalloped valance above the sink, and a rail above the crown molding.
- The countertops are real granite but are an orange color, the opposite of my perfect white marble dreams.
- The walls are dark red, combined with the dark cabinets, it turns our kitchen into the darkest room in the house.
All very opposite from my dream kitchen consisting of white and gray cabinets, white marble or quartz Torquay countertops, and brass hardware with soft gray walls, the perfect backdrop for all of my teal dishes.
Despite all of that I had a lot of fun this year decorating my kitchen for Christmas.”
The kitchen plays such a prime role around the holidays. It’s the center of so many holiday activities, like baking Christmas cookies, decorating gingerbread houses, and roasting the perfect prime rib for a Christmas feast. So it makes perfect sense that the kitchen should get into the holiday spirit too with some fun Christmas decorations.
Despite the red walls I still tried to stick with my no red color scheme on the first floor with our Christmas Decor.
I used lots of greenery through my kitchen accented with black and white striped ribbon and some fun kitchen accessories. (Like these star cookie cutters that I hung from each counter stool.)
This faux pine garland hangs on our kitchen valance to add some more green to this red kitchen. It’s a really beautiful faux garland. I’ve used several of this same garland around our front door, on our mantle, and on our Master bedroom headboard. The mix of the many styles of greenery makes it look so real.
I changed out our usual kitchen utensil caddy with these white painted Ball jars that I have used so many times since painting them for our wedding. I think they’ve made it to every room in our house and every event we have ever hosted.
Adding some fresh cedar sprigs with black ribbon to these jars was a super simple update. It takes such a small amount of greenery to add some cheer like this, I just snipped a couple sprigs from the cedar bush you can see out of my kitchen window.
Every year I have loved hanging a wreath from my one and only glass front cabinet door. This softly frosted lychee wreath is so festive and trendy.
This basket creates a nice centerpiece on the countertop that can easily be removed when it’s cookie baking time.
My Christmas cookie cutters came in handy again and acted as the ornaments for the two mini trees. Another great way to add a festive touch to your kitchen with little cost is to keep your holiday baked goods out for all to see. Festive Christmas cookies look amazing on a cute cake plate. Or decorate gingerbread houses and place them in glass cloche or in a glass pantry jar for easy Christmas Kitchen Decor that’s beautiful and festive.
What festive Christmas touches are you adding to your Kitchen this year?
