Christmas in the Kitchen

Welcome to Day 3 of the Cozy at Christmas Holiday Tour 2017.  Thanks to Katie at Let’s Add Sprinkles for hosting. I am so honored to be included this year! Once you’ve finished here, I hope that you’ll take a few more minutes and visit the rest of my friends on the tour!

Decorating for Christmas in the kitchen is always one of my favorite things to do. It’s where my family and I spend a lot of time, so what better place to have a little decorating fun?

In my family, it doesn’t matter whether we are eating, cooking or just hanging out, we always have fun!

This years table is a mix of traditional items and a little bit of whimsy.

For the past few years I’ve really been loving plaid. My table has a gray and black plaid scarf for a runner, along with black and white buffalo plaid napkins.

What better centerpiece than Santa delivering Christmas trees in his vintage truck?

We cut down a tree here at the Castle earlier this year, so I had The Hubs cut a few slices of wood from the tree to use in my Christmas decor.

Traditional red snowflake placemats, followed by black chalkboard Merry Christmas chargers are a great base for my holly Christmas dishes.

The hutch gets a few decorations too!

I add my Holly dishes to my year round white ones. The dishes are not only functional, but they are too pretty to be put away in the cabinets!

A few evergreen sprigs, berries and pine cones added here and there give it a festive feel.

Naughty or nice? That pretty much sums up my family for sure!

I keep the decorations in the rest of the kitchen to a minimum. It is a working kitchen after all!

Above the sink is the perfect place for some poinsettias and Santa to hang out.

We don’t have an elf on the shelf here at the castle, but we do have a few elves that like to hang out!

I guess they are just like everyone else, they just want to be in the kitchen where all the fun, food and love is happening!

I hope that you enjoyed Christmas in the kitchen, but don’t forget to check out my other blogger friends at Cozy at Christmas Holiday Tour 2017

  8. Tammy, I love your Christmas kitchen! I have had a love for plaid for many years. Your table is just delightful! Love your cute elves in the jars. Good way to keep them from causing to much havoc around the house. 🙂 The kitchen is the heart of the home and one of my favorite places to decorate as well.
