As I sit here and realize our house is finally decorated for the holidays, I can catch my breath for a minute. As much as I loved decorating every room in our house, decorating the kitchen for Christmas was a special experience.
I think that is because I am going to be spending every single minute in our kitchen for the next three weeks cooking for our party. (Actually that’s not entirely correct. Next week we are filming a movie for six days so I won’t be able to do anything in my kitchen for six days.) And yes. It’s true.
Today I am thrilled to be part of a blog hop with seven other bloggers. Be sure to follow the links to their posts which is at the bottom of this post! Special thanks to Janine from Happy Happy Nester and Ashley from ModernGlam Home for putting together this blog post. I am so excited to share with you my Christmas Kitchen Tour.
So I had to keep the decor simple as I need every counter surface for pots and pans and cooking prep! I am cooking for 200ish and it’s a lot of food. Trust me! My favorite decoration I put in our kitchen are fresh wreaths on the windows. They smell so good!
I went with a very traditional Christmas color palette this year. Red and white with a tiny bit of green. I know it’s not that creative but I am a traditional girl. And I love it. Next year I want to make Christmas floor cloths. Or I guess I could buy Christmas themed carpets for our kitchen. Either way, I think it would be festive.
I do know that it is a lot easier to decorate a kitchen that is white with green walls. This paint color is my most frequently asked question. It is Farrow and Ball and the color is Cooking Apple Green. How awesome is this color? I love it.
The wonderful sign on the counter is from my friend Kasey at Crafting in the Country.
Do you recognize the cookbook in the holder on the counter? It’s my favorite all time book, Entertaining, by Martha Stewart. Who knew it was red underneath that gorgeous cover. The cookbook holder is part of my collection at Curtis Creation.
There is something about this photo that I love. It starts in the kitchen, goes through the family room and then into my craft room. I love that!
Just adjacent to our kitchen is our family room dining table. I love this area and it’s where we always gather fro breakfast. We dine here for almost every meal. Although occasionally we do make it in to the dining room for a nice meal.
The kitchen is my heart and sole of our home. I love everything about it. And decorating the kitchen for the holidays makes sense. Thanks you for joining me for my Christmas Kitchen Tour. I really am in here from 8:00am to 11:00 pm for 7 days before the party. I simply cannot wait. It is going to be fun.
