As I always do, I’m using traditional Christmas colors of red and green in the kitchen. It just goes in there so well, so I go with it and it is my happy place of Christmas cheer. But I have to say, every year it gets more difficult to come up with fresh ideas as a blogger. I don’t go out and buy all new stuff and these things I have collected over the years and love it all, so I just can’t change it. I know it probably gets a little boring to see and as a blogger, we are “supposed” to do things all different from year to year, but it’s hard to do that for me. I can’t see changing things all up so here it is again! You’ve seen it all before, since this is my 10th Christmas in blogland.
I know that reality is many of us do not go out and buy all new things. I try to freshen up my look every year, but for the most part, it’s very much the same. Hope you enjoy!
I did change this up a bit this year and added this old green box to prop my tree in that I found antiquing last year. The color worked perfectly with my Christmas decor.
The tree is still in a red and white metal cylinder and sits in the box.
I love all the sparkly red and green in here, it makes for a festive kitchen during the Holidays.
I collected these ornaments years ago and still enjoy getting them all out.
You might notice there’s a new red and green wreath in the kitchen too! I made this one out of an old grapevine wreath I had, so I’ll be sharing the how-to later this week. I haven’t gotten my hot glue gun out in ages, but did for this project. The biggest ornaments came from Tree Classics and they are shatterproof. I really love how it turned out, it adds so much to my kitchen. Ribbon is from Michaels.
Better Not Pout little sign is one I’ve had for years and fits right in on the wreath.
More of my collected red and green than I’ve had for years. These cheery Christmas colors are the best!
Over on my rustic wall shelves, I just added some pretty red and green things to liven it up for the Holidays.
Red tulle, boxwood wreath, and different ornaments scattered around makes it all festive and cheery.
I love boxwood in so many settings. The Fa La La towel I’ve had for a long time too, probably came from Homegoods.
A little skinny hand painted Santa that came from a friend long ago.
Just by adding pretty and special ornaments on a shelf, it’s an instant way to add Christmas to any flat surface.
I always add this little assortment on my window sill above the sink and love staring at it during the Christmas season. Red bottlebrush trees, nostalgic Santas and a couple of faux paperwhites I picked up while in Birmingham, are the stars of the window. A few little shiny ornaments scattered around add a lot to the season.
My little chalkboard in the kitchen got a crowning Christmas wreath touch.
Along with a Christmas towel and a peek to the dining room, that’s it for my kitchen tour. Thank you as always for stopping by and celebrating Christmas with me!
