Simple Christmas Kitchen Decor
Well, it’s that time! My first official Christmas post of the season is up today. I’m teaming up once again with a bunch of my fave bloggers in the Seasons of Home Tour hosted by the fabulous Kristen from Ella Claire & Co Everyone is sharing how they like to add a little bit of Christmas cheer to their kitchen’s this time of year.
I’m trying to keep things pretty simple this year in order not to drive myself crazy with clutter by December 15. The Mr. has teased me in the past about dismantling the Christmas tree while our kids are still opening presents, haha.
This is entirely an exaggeration, I waited until at least after breakfast last year to start taking it all down. ;) Don’t get me wrong, I love all the fun of Christmas decorations, but they start to make me twitchy by the end of the season. I always crave a fresh and clean start for January.
I started with a pretty branch print that I found at Hobby Lobby and a few cute juniper plants from my local nursery. I like their little simple Charlie Brown tree vibe.
An old Balsam Hill wreath I have had for years got an update with a new green velvet ribbon and those brass bells I mentioned in last week’s post. I love the warmth and a little bit of shine that they add to the kitchen.
Once again I trudged through the snow to snip a few branches in the woods. I found this pretty green glass vase to add some drama and a plate of pomegranates for a pop of color.
Bonus I love pomegranate seeds in salads, so these have been slowly disappearing over the last few days. I’ll have to restock them soon!
I swapped out the pillows in the breakfast nook and hung a wreath up in the window.
I promptly took it down 2 days later because it was driving me nuts as it was blocking my view of the kids playing basketball outside, ha! It was pretty while it lasted though.
I told you I’m being pretty cutthroat about this twitchy eye thing when it comes to Christmas decor this year. I’m basically like the Marie Kondo of Christmas decorations – if it’s not sparking joy off it goes!
A little green ribbon wound through my cake stand was festive with my pumpkin spice bundt cake (I used this muffin recipe here and just added frosting – so good!)
Now be sure to head over to all of my friends’ gorgeous kitchens and check out their fun ideas!

thanks so much for this
Gorgeous!! Love this!!!
Kelly I love all your simple, organic touches – just the perfect amount of holiday cheer! The wreath looks gorgeous on your hood, and I’m loving the brass bells! I have a similar set but the size of yours are so cute (might have to get those, too!)
Happy holidays to you!
Your Christmas decor is beautiful! I love the wreath with brass bells – where did you get them? I have been looking for some for my outdoor wreath. Love your blog!
How do you hang the wreath above the stove? I’m so nervous to ruin my vent hood b/c sometimes the command hooks just don’t come off easily.
I use a command hook just make sure to follow the instructions exactly and I haven’t had any issues. Good luck!
Love, love, love the simple elegance of your Christmas kitchen. It’s beautiful, Kelly, but I’m worried Charlie’s going to be upset when he finds out you didn’t include him in your post! ; )
haha! I’ll make sure he makes it in the Christmas tree post :)
Love the brass bells! Ordered some for myself.
Oh good I hope you love them!
Beautiful decor! How did you attach the wreath to the area above your range? Thanks!
I used those command hooks!

love the simplicity of it. Less is more for me too ❤️ Quick question. I used your muffin recipe to make a Bundt cake a few weeks ago. It was a huge success. How long did you bake for ? The timing on the cake mix box seemed a little off.
Thank you ?
25-30 minutes I believe!
Really cute “Charlie brown” vibes. So in love with that green velvet ribbon and by the way, your kitchen is gorgeous.
Thanks so much Shanna!
Love the bells with the wreath …so pretty! I agree about the Cmas decor. I’m ready the day after to take it all down!
Me too!! I love it while it’s up but then it needs to come down!
I laughed reading this! You are so not alone with the twitchy thing and Christmas decorations. My tree comes down Christmas night or the day after. I can’t take clutter either and have decorated and then marched most of it back to my basement the next day. Your kitchen is beautiful and the Christmas decor is perfect. Not over the top.
Thanks Kim! It feels so good to start fresh the day after Christmas :)
Love that print above the oven! Simple but effective adding Christmas cheer to your beautiful kitchen!
That wreath above your range is everything!! It’s gorgeous. I also love that simple pine branch arrangement on your island. It’s just perfect! Merry Christmas!
Thanks so much Michael!
Love the simplicity of this! I never seem to have time to get decorated until right after Thanksgiving so I leave everything until January 2. Enjoy!
That makes sense, Thanksgiving is SO late this year!
