I love cooking in our kitchen for the holidays whether it is preparing family dinners or cooking for 200 guests for our Christmas party. Today I am sharing how I decorated our kitchen for a Holiday House Tour.
I am thrilled to be a part of a Holiday House Tour and I am so excited to join fifty bloggers as we share rooms in our homes decorated for Christmas every day this week! The tour is coordinated by my friend Krista at The Happy Housie. Be sure and check out her blog! If you are coming here from Home Made Lovely, welcome!
I am so excited to be part of an incredible Easy Summer Styling Blog Tour. Sixteen ladies (plus me) are part of this group and I must say, holy cow! There are some really great ideas and beautiful photos included in all of these blog posts. So please be sure to check them out!
Before we get started, I want to thank Kelly from The Tattered Pew for putting together this amazing group. She has worked so hard to make this happen and we could not have done this without her.
Spring Cleaning. It’s one of my favorite times of the year. It started a few weeks ago with cleaning out our pantry and refrigerator. It continued last week with emptying out of basement. And this weekend I deep cleaned our kitchen. But here is the interesting part. Before I started the “deep cleaning”, I “spring cleaned my cleaning products” first.
The theme for my blog this month is outdoor entertaining. With summer just around the corner, it is the perfect time to get everything ready outside for entertaining. Most of you know how much I love to cook. (Although I should admit that I like to entertain more than just cook.) About ten years ago I talked my husband into adding an outdoor kitchen to our backyard. We already had the barbecue and smoker so adding the outdoor kitchen really meant we were adding the island with the counter and a few kitchen items. It’s one of my favorite “rooms” in our home.
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.
