Christmas Kitchen Decor

As promised, the Christmas cheer is coming your way this week! I’m so excited to be joining in on the Seasons of Home tour Series hosted by Kristen from Ella ClaireToday some of my favorite bloggers and I are sharing how we add a bit of Christmas to our kitchens. Be sure to check out all the amazing spaces my blogger friends are sharing – so many inspiring ideas! Christmas Kitchen Decor

I have to confess, last year I used real greenery in our kitchen and I loved the look. However I’ve finally decided live greenery is best left for non-bloggers, who aren’t decorating for Christmas on Halloween!

It’s just never going to last until Christmas. I finally took it down about a week before Christmas last year after my kids found one too many pine needles in their dinner. I mean they are green right? Basically a veggie ;)

This year, I used a beautiful faux garland above my range hood, and it has really pretty eucalyptus branches and pinecones in it. The key I have found to using faux greenery is finding garland that has several different kinds of branches and greenery in it.

Lots of questions last year on how I attach things to my hood – I used 3 – 3M strips (the 5lb hook kind) and they worked great. You do have to follow the directions carefully, but they removed with no marks just fine last year.

I found this cute “Rosemary” sign at Hobby Lobby for $8. It wasn’t with the Christmas decor, but rosemary sprigs always feel holiday to me. I like that it can transition to winter decor too.

While I skipped the live garland, I did find some cute “Christmas-y” live plants at my local nursery. I found this little juniper tree in the bonsai section of Fruitbasket Flowerland (my fave local spot for plants). I love the thought of having my own little Charlie Brown-esq Christmas tree to last me all season and through the winter too. My ever present bowl of oranges gets a little holiday twist with some cinnamon sticks and a pom pom garland.

I also found this little Jerusalem cherry tree for a pop of color – beware if you buy one of these, they are poisonous, so have a talk with your kiddos about not eating them! I love the holly vibe they have…

And it detracts from my attempt at decorating a gingerbread house myself. Fun fact – the Mr. is in charge of the gingerbread efforts at our house every year and now I know why! I’ll leave it to my kids and stick to my day job.

Christmas breakfast nook

The breakfast nook got a little festive with a jar of tree clippings, because you know I’m always shopping my yard!

I’m hosting several Christmas parties this year and I always use this counter space back here to set up the beverage area. I’m a big believer in buffets over formal sit down dinners when there is a crowd to feed, so the breakfast nook doubles as a the “grab a plate” station.

These little bottle brush trees and reindeer add some fun without taking up too much space, and will easily be moved aside for ice buckets and beverages.

christmas pantry decor

Of course I had to add a little bit of cheer in my newly wallpapered pantry (check it out here). Just a few ornaments and branches from the yard since this room is the most used in our whole house.

There we go, just a few simple touches to bring Christmas in the kitchen. I will be churning out cookies, pies and comforting meals here all season – sans pine needles this year!

  1. Hi Kelly! I am in love with your kitchen! Just bought the book chairs and love the nook table but the link just goes to generic Wayfair table search. Are you able to give me more info on that table? Thank you!!

    1. Hey I think that table is either sold out or discontinued – sorry about that! I actually bought a new table from Crate and Barrel to replace this one.

  2. Hi! I just found your blog while searching white backsplashes. I love that black hanging rod with hooks above your range! That would be perfect to help cover up the really horrible tile job my builder did on the backsplash. He ruined beautiful hand crafted white subway tile. Can I ask you where you found that? Thank you!!

  3. Absolutely stunning kitchen! Can I ask where you got your oven hood from? I’m looking for something exactly like that :)

  4. Love it Kelly! Just the small touches that make the big splash!

    The kitchens below yours are divine as well… thank you for sharing these.

  5. Absolutely beautiful. I am in love with your breakfast area. All of this is so pretty. And now I am on the hunt for the Rosemary sign. Darling.

  6. Kelly!!!! Love all of it. Your kitchen is ah-mazing. I love all the Christmas touches and the blue is such a pretty accent. Thanks for sharing!!!!

    1. Thanks Jane! I have so much blue in my house it’s sort of hard to get away from even at the holidays, so I’m making it work :)

  7. Kelly your kitchen is so gorgeous – one of my favorites for sure! And I can’t believe your husband did that gingerbread house!!! Can he come over and do ours too?!! Funny because, like you, I always did real greens everywhere then last year when mine were up for like 3 months, needles were coming out of our eyes! I, too, have succumbed to faux and I have to say, your faux garland is SO gorgeous and real looking!! LOVE!

    Great to be “hopping” with you!


  8. I love this! Like others have said, you’ve done just enough simple touches to make things festive for the season without being overpowering (or too much to take down later!). Planning something similar this year myself. Enjoy your holiday season!

    1. Thanks Meg! I’m trying to keep it more classic and simple this year but we will see where that goes with the rest of the house!

  9. This looks amazing. I just love how simple and pretty it is. There’s something to be said for less is more. I really like the garland. May I ask if you doubled it by any chance? The photo on Hayneedle’s site doesn’t look as “plump” as yours.

    1. Hi Becky, so the garland is 6 ft long and it’s folded in half for this look, so yes essentially it’s doubled – thanks!

  10. Beautiful! I too have the blessing of a home on a lake in Illinois! Never gets old! Could you please share where you got your bottle brush trees? Everyone I find the branches are smooshed!

  11. Just beautiful with just the right amount of decorations.
    What make is your gas range?

    1. Hi leslie this is from Monogram it’s the bigger 36 inch, 6 burner version. I think it’s from their pro line? Thanks!

  12. Gorgeous as always! And I’m enjoying the tour of like-minded ladies. Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season….wasn’t Memorial Day just last week?!?

  13. What I always love about your decorating, Kelly, is that your home is so beautiful but not cluttered. Your sweet little touches of the season will certainly elicit a smile from your family and guests. So well done!

  14. Love it! The link to the garland isn’t working…can you share which one it is that you bought?

      1. Beautiful! The link is now working, just wondering if you doubled up the garland over your range hood or cut the length? I saw that it is 6 feet long.

    1. I’ve had it for about 10 years so I don’t honestly remember! I think Hobby Lobby has similar ones as does World Market.

  15. Looks perfect! Just a touch of holiday cheer without the clutter! Love the bright airy space and the use of some live plants. Hit it out of the park once again ??

  16. Love it!! Your blog post was the perfect distraction I needed this morning…the day after the elections! Such a “calm after the storm”!!

  17. Kelly, your little gingerbread cottage is just delightful, so pat yourself on the back, please. Your greenery all looks festive without “screaming” about it – I love it! Too bad pine needle soup is off the menu this holiday season, it’s good for you ?

    1. Thanks Chloe! Absolutely loved your kitchen! And you are welcome for coffee anytime, although I need to come your way so I can meet the goats :)
