Hello, friends! Thank you so much for the kind comments on our holiday home. We are all about spending time with people we love this time of year and enjoyed having my parents for dinner last night. The glorious thing about having my parents over is that they don’t mind the frozen lasagna I rolled with! More time to relax and chat. Speaking of making dinner, I am excited to be a part of the Deck the Halls tour hosted by Decor Gold Designs and Randi Garrett Design and am sharing our kitchen today. We just added a few touches to make it feel more festive and fun this time of year.
If you are popping over from Shabby Fufu, welcome! Janet’s styling skills are out of this world. My jaw literally dropped when I saw her blush pink Christmas decor. She is an amazing talent.
A CHRISTMAS KITCHEN
We kept things very simple in our kitchen. I added a wreath above our home (thank you Command Strips!) and some fresh greenery to the stools and lanterns.
ADD FRESH GREENS
Tying ribbon around each stool with a bundle of fresh greens makes the kitchen smell so good. These do dry out quickly so I recommend doing it before you entertain or plan on swapping them out once they are dry. It was the cutest because my 8 year old son came home from school and immediately said, “Oh! Mom! Love the stools. Thank you.” Made my week.
These lanterns are from Restoration Hardware and I just tied a bundle of fresh greens to the bottom for a festive touch.
I’m all about keeping things simple during this time of year. Adding fresh greens does the trick for dressing up a coffee cake.
Before I host, I swap out the faux wreath for a boxwood wreath. They tend to dry out so I wait until closer to Christmas to do that. I just love the simplicity of a boxwood wreath. Trader Joe’s is my favorite spot to buy those.
Our breakfast nook is looking a bit more holiday ready with a boxwood wreath and some gifts on the barcart. Simple and nothing I have to store once Christmas has passed.
