Welcome to my Christmas Farmhouse Kitchen! I think it’s been a while since I shared a kitchen post, so I’m excited to show you my holiday decor today.
First, let me give a shout out to Krista at The Happy Housie for hosting the Seasonal Simplicity Christmas tour this week. It’s a lot of work organizing a bunch of bloggers from across the country, so she deserves some kudos! If you’re coming from Janine’s house at The Happy Happy Nester, welcome!
Okay, so back to my farmhouse kitchen. This is the one room in my home where I like to use red for Christmas decorating. I mean, with my dark green tile floor, how could I not?
If you visited my Christmas home tour yesterday, then you know I didn’t use the color red anywhere else. But here in my kitchen, I think it’s necessary for the holiday. On my table is a throw blanket posing as a tablecloth. One thing I don’t like about tablecloths is that they’re thin. I feel throws protect the table better.
On the built-in cabinet behind the table is a cheery little Christmas sign. In the past I’ve hung small boxwood wreaths on this cabinet.
My favorite poinsettias serve as a centerpiece in a big white bowl. I’ll probably always use this tropical plant in my holiday decor.
To set the table, I brought out my white, rectangle-shaped plates.
Milk glass tumblers like my grandmother’s pair with “Sip It Like It’s Hot” enamelware mugs that I like to use during the winter.
Christmas tree bowls add a festive touch atop holiday napkins embroidered with little bunches of mistletoe.
Little poinsettias pair up with small Christmas wreaths in my windows above the kitchen sink. Waechtersberg Christmas plates handed down from my mother sit in the drying rack.
When it comes to holiday baking, I like to pull out my red and cream mixing bowls along with red utensils. It just makes the task more fun!
The kitchen sideboard gets a few touches of greenery and wood pieces like cutting boards, bowls, and my mushrooms.
I placed a tiny Christmas tree inside the wooden bowl but then …
I thought the bowl might look better with a candle inside!
Thanks for visiting my farmhouse kitchen decked out for the holidays. Next up today is Chelsea who blogs at Two Twenty One. And then you can catch up with the rest of the tours at the links below.
