Christmas Kitchen Tour

Welcome to my Christmas Kitchen!  Today, I am joining a group of bloggers in sharing our kitchens with you in hopes of inspiring and spreading the holiday spirit.  I think you're really going to enjoy the tour!

When it comes to decorating my kitchen, I love to incorporate pops of red, natural greenery and fresh citrus.  They are timeless and classic.  There seems to be an abundance of cookies this time of year and aromas of cinnamon and spice fill the home.

BAKING AREA SOURCES: Glass Jars  |  Crate and Barrel Utensil Crock - discontinued  |  Tartan Spatula  |  Small Red and White Stripe Bowl  |  Large Red and White Stripe Bowl  |  Spode Spoon Rest (similar here)  |  Cookie Jar is from TJ Maxx  |  Baker Santa is from Kohl's 2011  |  Spode Peppermint Canapé Plates

DINING CREDENZA AREA: Mariposa Pineapple Bottle Stopper (similar here)  |  Mandarin Blue Ginger Jar  |  Mariposa Napkin Holder  |  Have a Holly Jolly Christmas Print via Craftberry Bush  |  Tartan Runner is from Marshall's  |  Lattice Wine Collar  |  Metal Deer is from HomeGoods  |  Silver Tray is a hand-me-down from my mom 

We actually don't have a kitchen table... yet.  Mike wants to build one when we get a house, so for now, we eat either at the bar or the coffee table.

The Christmas card display is a DIY project we completed late summer/early fall.  The tutorial we followed can be found on Life On Virginia Street's Christmas Home Tour from 2014, which you may have seen on my Instagram here and here.  I change it out for the seasons and LOVE it!

"TABLESCAPE" SOURCES: Tartan Runner is from Marshall's  |  Tartan Napkins are from Marshall's  |  Spode Christmas Tree Dinner Plate  |  Spode Christmas Tree Salad Plate  |  Brass Napkin Rings  |  Grapefruit Ginger Hand Soap is from HomeGoods  |  Boxwood Wreath

I began my Christmas collection after I graduated from college where I would stock up on holiday décor (ornaments in particular) during post Thanksgiving and Christmas sales.  I've also purchased a good amount from HomeGoods and Marshall's this season, as seen here, to complete some rooms.  This year I decided to not put my Culinary Christmas Tree up, but you can view it here from last year's post.

That wraps up my Christmas Kitchen Tour.  If you arrived here from one of the participating blogs, thank you so much for stopping by-- I hope you enjoyed and will return.  And thank you to all of my loyal followers.  Be sure to hop on over to the other lovely ladies Christmas Kitchen Tours today- I know you won't be disappointed.

  1. Looking extra cozy, merry and bright! I love it all!

  2. Such a fun and festive space! I love the Christmas card display! I hung my on a side wall in our kitchen just on a long gold ribbon but the photo wasn't blog worth enough! ;) Where did you find the Holly Jolly Christmas print? That area is so cute too!

    1. Thank you! The print was a free printable from Craftberry Bush, found here:
