Can you believe it’s that time of year again?! Today I’m sharing my first Christmas post of the season, and I can hardly believe it’s been a year since last year’s holiday posts!
I’m joining an amazingly talented group of 15 other bloggers for our annual Seasons of Home Holiday series, hosted by Kristen of Ella Claire & Co., and we’re all sharing our Christmas kitchen decor. I know it can seem a little early for some (especially my husband, haha! 😉 ) but our idea in sharing early is to give you ideas for your own holiday decorating. I find that when I’m planning I start looking on Pinterest for inspiration and ideas around this time, so we want you to get inspired ~ even if you’re not decorating for a few weeks yet!
And personally, I love starting with a touch of Christmas in the kitchen. It seems like a place where you can add a few touches without going full force. And this year, I have a bit of a surprise for you. In fact, it’s a surprise for me, too! Last year, I did a Christmas that was mostly neutral, with touches of blush and copper. But this year I’m going in a different direction. Of course, I’m still decorating in mostly neutrals, but this year I’m adding some French blue to the equation. And funny enough, I’ve never loved blue in Christmas decor. That is, until now…
The first place I usually add Christmas kitchen decor is to this little corner of my counter. A gathering of a little vintage Santa, some ornaments, and a paper mâché house featured on a cake stand. I love using cake stands as decor in the kitchen! They make anything look cute and special – they’re not just for food!
Can I tell you a secret? This little blue velvet Santa is the thing that inspired this entire season ~ and I bought it last year! I literally saw this little guy late in December and the second I saw him and that gorgeous soft blue color, I knew it was going to be my color palette for this year!
I usually add this little tree in the kitchen, too, just for some added texture, greenery and sparkle 😉
More ornaments, a little tree and another vintage Santa decorate the counter on the other side. I love using ornaments as decor ~ it’s easy and so festive, and it doesn’t involve buying anything special!
A couple of white trees, a little bottle brush wreath and some eucalyptus decorate the stove mantel.
The great thing about using mostly neutral Christmas decor, is that you just need to buy a couple of boxes of ornaments of whatever color you want to add! I purchased 3 boxes of new blue ornaments, the blue Santa that started it all, and some blue ribbon. That’s it!
These little frosted wreaths were a new purchase last year (except I used cream ribbon) and they are out again because I love them so much!
More silver and blue ornaments in my antique French ironstone tureen. I broke the top so it’s the perfect way to continue using it!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope this inspired you and got your juices flowing for your own holiday decor! And be sure to visit my talented friends for more Christmas kitchen decor inspiration ~ they are so good!!
