Christmas In the Kitchen
And just like that....my 9 days off is over. I am truly thankful for the time I had though. I was able to get so many things done and checked off my list. I wanted to thank you all for the sweet comments you left about my dining room Christmas decor. You are the sweetest! Today I am sharing my kitchen decor which is also pretty simple. Again I used fresh greenery and a few things I had in my house. I love the simplicity of it.
These are the shelves to the left of my kitchen sink. Just a few pops of red and green does the trick.
Love the fresh cedar and berry branches in my milk pitcher.
My ironstone muffin pan looks so pretty with tea lights in it. A gingerbread cookbook and the tiny tree I got from my mother-in-law's craft shop completes this corner.
The window holds three of my small pitchers and creamers filled with fresh greenery as does the green bottle on the sink. I made a new curtain with the black and white gingham I also got from my mother-in-law.
So pretty! I like the reflection of the tree lights in the window glass.
To the right of the sink are my other two shelves. Again, just a few red and green pops of color.
The hand print plate is Dakota's from 3rd grade. He was in 3rd grade the year I started teaching and I made these with my class using paint for porcelain that is baked on and food safe. I tried it out with him before I made them in my class. I added some red and green peppermint look paper straws in a little milk jug and stacked two of my red jars from Target.
The other side of the kitchen just got some greenery on top of the cabinets. I also put some Christmas recipe books in the corner.
I hope the poinsettia will be OK inside. Do you have any tips to keep it alive and healthy indoors?
And, that's it. Simple but pretty and I am enjoying it.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have a great week ahead. I am excited to see all my kinders in the morning and get the Christmas season underway! Their excitement at this time of year is contagious!
Until next time.....
