We rarely do any Christmas decorating in the kitchen!  But , this year, we’ve added lots of sparkle for the season!

We’re sharing our Christmas decorating in the kitchen ideas and joining a great group of bloggers this week.

Thanks to Kelly from North Country Nest for organizing this amazing tour where you’ll get lots of Christmas decorating inspiration for living rooms, kitchens, porches and more!

I don’t like a lot of clutter in my kitchen so I never really decorated for Christmas in there.  This year I decided it needed a little something.  The dining area was decorated last week and the kitchen next to it looked a bit empty and sad.

I dressed up the dining table to coordinate with our coastal Christmas theme.  Our oyster shell ornaments are the perfect little accents to each place setting.  We found the sparkly silver chargers and silver threaded napkins at Home Goods. 

If I am going to make a purchase of Christmas decorations I usually go with something neutral colored so it matches lots of different color themes.  That makes it affordable to change things up every year.

I couldn’t resist this sweet little Magnolia terrarium that I found on clearance at target.  This piece will be displayed year round in our home, probably filled with flowers in the Spring.

To keep the terrarium and the mini tree corralled on the counter, I popped them in a wooden tray with some candles and loose ornaments.  Woven through our Ball jars, every day dishes and demijohns are white twinkle lights.

Glass ornaments in bowls or dishes look so cute and festive!

There were three backless stools at our island (you can see them here) but I wanted to change it up at bit so we brought these stools down from the studio.  I tied simple wreaths to the back of them and to the dining chairs.

After I took the pic above I realized the cake stand was looking a little boring so I added (no surprise here) some loose glass ornaments that I had gold leafed.

So far, I am loving the Christmas decorations in the kitchen.  I purposely kept them away from the area where I work most often so I don’t think I will have to be moving them too often.  What do you think?  Do you decorate your kitchen for Christmas?

  1. Your kitchen looks beautiful, Leen! I love how you style your shelves with Mason jars and lights. It looks so pretty and I’ll bet at night it really glows. I also like the wreaths that you attached to your bar chairs, so pretty! I’ve enjoyed all of your coastal Christmas decorations this holiday season.
