Today I’m sharing one last space in my home decorated for Christmas – the kitchen and dining area. You can see the holiday decor in our den here and living room here. I’m linking up again with Jennifer Rizzo’s Holiday Housewalk Link Party. Her Christmas blog tour is one of my favorites, and I highly recommend you paying her a visit for some holiday inspiration.
Our main floor living space is open, so the dining room is really just the space between the living room and the kitchen. I’ve kept the dining table simple and uncluttered with a gorgeous silver vase I found at the Goodwill. I filled it with white lilies, eucalyptus and a bit of cedar – it smells amazing and has lasted so long. I gave our dining table a makeover recently, and I am really happy with how it is functioning in our small space. You can see the before and after here.
Kept clear, the table makes a great gift wrapping spot.
The kitchen is the hub of our home, and a total workhorse. I didn’t go overboard with holiday decor in this space, just a few festive touches. I added blue ribbons to the pendant lights over the island. The clear glass globes remind me of Christmas ornaments. It’s just a simple small touch, but kind of fun.
I picked up a few faux pine trees from Hobby Lobby this year. I placed one in an old trophy cup vase that I have had for at least 20 years. It’s one of my old standbys.
I hung a faux boxwood wreath on the vent hood. Command hooks work perfectly for this. I switched out some of the decor on my open shelves. Nothing crazy, just a few sprigs of fresh greenery and some bottle brush trees.
This old scale is one of my favorite Goodwill finds. I’m sure it spent many a year weighing packages just like this.
Baked goods on our island are always welcome in my home. We made some sugared cranberries with our left overs from Thanksgiving. They look so pretty, and my kids liked snacking on them, too.
Thanks so much for taking a look around my home. I hope you have enjoyed my simple Christmas kitchen.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
