The kitchen is the heart and soul of the home. Here are some easy steps on how to decorate the kitchen for Christmas.
Often I hear from family and friends, how do I make my kitchen look festive? What should I decorate with on the kitchen counters? I have a few tips for creating a beautiful kitchen space for the holiday season.
First, let tell you something wonderful! Today, I’m participating in the Celebrate Christmas Home Tours Hop with some of my talented blogging friends, hosted by Leen from Sand Dollar Lane.
If you have come over from Lindsay, Aratari At Home welcome! I love how she styled her bookshelves for Christmas.
decorating your kitchen counters
How to decorate kitchen counters? It’s easy to make your counters look festive. You can leave your regular items on the counter. Add a couple of seasonal décor item.
I added a snowman to the existing counter vignette. The green vintage scale already has that Christmas color. The snowman spruces it up to add a touch of whimsy.
By keeping it simple there will be less to pack up after the holiday.
Adding a few Target Dollar Spot trees give this space a holiday feel. It was budget friendly and could be kept out for the winter.
Jars with glass lids could hold holiday candys and be placed on the counter. Try adding some Epsom to a jar and place a white house and bottle brush tree to create your own a winter scene. I made one for my table.
A fun item for the counters would be create a hot chocolate station.
You can add some of your favorite holiday mugs. A tray to gather up containers with some marshmallows, peppermint candy, hot chocolate mix, etc. It’s a family favorite around my house.
decorating your kitchen island
How to style the kitchen island for Christmas? There are some many options. Here are a few of my favorites:
Create a vignette by using a tray, cutting board or riser. Always use odd amount of items such a 3, 5 or 7. Here I have a Christmas Tree with pinecones in a white pot; a small wreath; a candle that was tucked inside the wreath, a metal star with tea light (battery operated); and a three miniature glass ornaments. It is simple yet beautiful!
Trying adding a dough bowl. You can fill it with fresh or faux greens and ornaments. You can fill your bowl with fresh fruits. I love oranges with cloves. It smells amazing! Vintage books and holiday décor item work well in a dough bowl. The options are endless.
windows, doors, Cabinets…
One of my favorite items to add to the kitchen for Christmas are wreathes.
Wreathes can be placed just about anywhere in the kitchen. I have a vintage Jell-O mold wreath on my pantry door. The bow can be changed out to match holiday decor.
Try hanging faux wreathes on kitchen or pantry doors. A window over the sink is the perfect spot for a wreath. How about hanging small 10″ wreathes from ribbons on your cabinet doors? I love the look of a wreath on the vent hood. I hope this gives you a few ideas for your kitchen.
