Our farmhouse kitchen just got cozier with a new kitchen island! I waited until it arrived before decorating the kitchen for Christmas. Hubby and I assembled the island in two hours flat. Now that it’s complete, I’m ready to share Christmas in my cozy kitchen. I’m joining other bloggers for our Seasonal Simplicity holiday tour, so be sure to visit their blogs listed at the end of this post. Thanks to House by Hoff and The Happy Housie for organizing today’s tour! (This post contains affiliate links.)
Isn’t she beautiful? Sigh. At least, I think this island is pretty special.
My new kitchen island has a drop leaf that lifts up when you want to use it as a breakfast bar! When you’re done eating, just slide the legs back into the island and drop the leaf. My flea market stools are too high though, so we either need to cut the legs down or find new ones.
I’m so excited hubby and I can enjoy breakfast or any meal here at the new island. I pulled out last year’s deer plates for a nice little brunch setting.
Paper mache ornaments with white patterns fill a dough bowl. You might remember these from the first part of my Christmas home tour. I bought two boxes of them from HomeGoods so I have plenty for a couple of rooms.
A few small touches add a bit of Christmas cheer in the kitchen. I found the stoneware crock at the local flea market just five dollars! It’s my favorite one.
Small wreaths from Magnolia Market hang at the windows while pretty red poinsettias fill a corner on the counter.
The sideboard gets a few holiday embellishments of its own.
A French mug drying rack displays colorful holiday coffee cups. Friends and family can grab their mug of choice for coffee or cocoa.
Christmas greens fill my favorite sheep planter. I just love their little faces!
But for now, the star of my cozy kitchen is the new island. She’s slightly larger than my old one and has more storage.
