Today’s holiday tour features simple Christmas decorating in the kitchen! This year I’m channeling a more European-inspired feeling, with a simple, neutral palette and lots of greenery.
This year I’ve gone very simple in my holiday decor, evoking a sense of European style. A neutral palette, with lots of greenery is the vibe I’m going for. Because the holidays can feel a little crazy or stressful, it feels so good to have a calming, peaceful feeling in our home.
Welcome to my French-inspired Christmas kitchen….
Last year was full of touches of French blue and the year before, I had blush pink accents! But this year I really wanted to simplify. Not that I ever go too crazy, but whatever glitter and bling I did have are gone, and in their place are lots of neutrals and greenery, with pops of white.

I always love to display a little vignette in the corner of the peninsula, and this year I used white roses and eucalyptus in an ironstone pitcher, with a teeny tiny tree, some pinecones and a vintage Santa.
The vintage Santas feel very European to me and I’ve scattered a few of them in each room this year.
This tabletop Noble tree is a favorite new find! I bought two and featured one in the family room strung with dried oranges, and this one lives in the kitchen in a vintage French bucket.
I’ve purposely left it bare except for the lights – I love the cheer it brings to the room!
On the counter is a little faux cedar tree in a vintage pot, another little Santa, and some ornaments in a vintage scale.
The mantel over our range is a favorite place to decorate! This year I added another little pine tree and a teeny tiny wreath, along with some cedar and eucalyptus branches.
Vintage linen towels with touches of red bring some subtle seasonal color without going overboard.
The trio of little trees creates a simple centerpiece on the kitchen table, and one that can stay all the way through January. The little trees are faux and I’ve put them in vintage French terracotta pots that I found. It’s probably one of my favorite things I’ve ever done!
A few pinecones and more eucalyptus and greenery are added along the linen runner for a simple take on the season.
I’ve sourced some below similar finds below so you can recreate this, but since I did this I also found a cute tree already in a terracotta pot in case you feel like buying it already done!
Love the vintage pots! They really create the French/European casual vibe I was going for – I might have to keep these here all year! 😉
I hope this simple Christmas decorating has inspired you! And thank you so much for stopping by today. I know there are a ton of tours this time of year, and I so appreciate you coming here and spending time in my little corner of the internet!
