Christmas Décor {Kitchen Touches}

In an effort to keep things simple this year, I added just a few Christmas touches to our kitchen. Trader Joes has some fantastic fresh wreaths right now. I scooped up two little ones for the kitchen cabinets. I have never hung them here before, so wasn’t sure it would work but it really was simple. I cut the ribbon long enough to stretch over the door and then taped it on the backside of the door with one piece of white duct tape. It seems to be very secure. kitchen christmas by a thoughtful place It’s nice having the fresh smell of pine in the kitchen. I realize as they begin to dry out they will drop needles so I may have to replace them before Christmas rolls around. At $5 each I am willing to take the risk. I am normally on the side of not putting things above my cabinets, but for this time of year we put the pre-lit garlands on top. I love the glow and I think it really warms up the space for the holidays. kitchen christmas by a thoughtful place     kitchen christmas by a thoughtful place I filled a glass jar with shiny ornaments and it is sitting next to my gray and white frame {Nate Berkus for Target}.

Oh, and I  just noticed my tripod being reflected in our microwave! Oops! Do you add decorative touches to your kitchen during this time? I would love to know what you do.

    I love the wreaths on the cabinets — that looks gorgeous! My mother-in-law puts a big wreath on hr range hood, and I love it every year. :-) Thanks for sharing Christmas in your kitchen!

    Love it all!! So pretty and fresh…and thank goodness for TJ! I like to put small strings of lights in wine bottles on my counters. I may or may not have a large collection. #hiccup

    Love the wreaths on the cabinets! What a great idea!! Wish I had time to get to Trader Joes. For the past several years, I have used all of my snowman decorations in my kitchen. I have several items that my kids have made (snowmen out of bricks and a drawing of a snowman my daughter made when she was 5, that I framed) and decorative plates that I display.

    I have to tell you, I recently found your blog via Janell @ HOF and have been swimming in it (your blog!)! I was up on night (the night I found your blog) till 2 AM!! Ugh! The next day was rough…but, I really love your style and clean-organized look. Now you are one of my "dailies" I look so forward to everyday. Happy Holiday!

    I really like this idea of the wreaths on the cabinet doors, how simple and nice for the holidays… I do not really decorate the kitchen much during the holidays, but I am always baking during this season, so there is always something festive on our counters like gingerbread man cookies or iced sugar cookies.
