Holiday Home Tour – Christmas in the Kitchen

I must admit I’m definitely feeling festive and really starting to get in the holiday mood!

Thanksgiving was last week, and I’ve been busy finishing up the decorating over the last few days. (Which also means I now have permission to blast Christmas music daily!)

And I’m excited to be joining 14 fellow bloggers for a Holiday Home Tour today! These holiday home tours are definitely my favorite posts to do all year. Not only do I love decorating for the holidays, but I get so much inspiration from looking at all the other houses dressed up, too!

Today I’m opening my doors and sharing my Christmas kitchen. I’m continuing with the same palette of green and cream that I used in the living room and dining room on my first tour. Of course, the kitchen is a smaller space and I don’t want to do so much that it makes it hard to cook or use the room since I’m in there daily!

Just enough to add a little cheer to the space, and to make it festive. I concentrated on bringing in greens, both faux and natural, and I love the contrast against the white room.

To create my Christmas kitchen, I’ve added my preserved boxwood wreaths on each window. It was too early to get live when I was first decorating and I found these at Target for a great price. I love the look, and to me, they are a step above plastic.

I do prefer live greens whenever possible, but sometimes it just doesn’t work! In that case, these are your best friend. They are the next best thing to live!

Another perennial Christmas favorite for me is my bottle brush trees! I love these so much I wrote a whole post devoted to them last year! Their vintage-y charm just gets me every time. Mine are a mix of both vintage and new.

And little trees in pots, unadorned, both real and faux, are also spread around the room. This one above was from Home Goods this year, but I found several similar ones and linked them below.

As I’ve shared before, my stove mantel is one of my favorite areas to decorate and I tend to change it with each season! Here I combined a vintage bread board, a little boxwood wreath, a wood Christmas sign, and two more little faux Christmas trees.

 Here I used an old scale filled with mercury ornaments along with vintage French bread boards to create a little vignette on the counter.

As the centerpiece on the kitchen table, I filled my antique dough bowl with white poinsettias. One thing I love about having a dough bowl is the many ways you can style it!

You can get more ideas on styling them for all different holidays and seasons in my Antique Dough Bowl post.

Live swags of greenery add some interest over a console table. Below are two of my Belsnickle Santas (I’ve been collecting these for years) and two little live cedar trees that I wrapped in burlap bags.

Thank you again for stopping by. I hope you’ve enjoyed my little Christmas kitchen tour, and I also hope you’ll pop over again later this week as I share the other areas of the house in two more upcoming tours!

Don’t forget to scroll to the end of the post and take a peek at the other Christmas decorating being shared!

  1. Hello! Love the look of your kitchen! We are currently building a farm style house. Your treatment of the range hood over the stove is perfect!!!’ Do you know what brand/style your hood range insert is? I am having a hard time finding one I like. Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Jean and thanks for your kind words! Sadly, I don’t know the brand of our range insert. I can tell you it was inexpensive and it’s not very good! I was going to buy the Wolf (my range is Wolf and they sell one to go with it) but the salesman talked me out of it saying it wasn’t necessary. Now I wish I would have spent the money on a higher quality one as this one doesn’t work very well. I do love my Wolf range though! I recommend going to an appliance store and telling them you’re building a custom range hood and you just need an insert/fan – they know most of them and can guide you from there.

      Good luck with your kitchen!

  2. I love your kitchen! Can you share details about your kitchen counter?
