Christmas in a Cozy Kitchen
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.

you have such a beautiful home filled with the spirit of Christmas. I hope you will share at my party, remember to leave a comment with your link number so we can feature your lovely blog. xo
Thanks Katherine! I haven’t participated in a link party for a long time now, but thanks for the invitation. I have to use my blogging time wisely so I mostly just share on Pinterest and Facebook. It’s faster. 🙂
The island is beautiful, Jennifer! I love your Christmas touches in the kitchen. Thanks for joining in on this tour!!
Thanks Krista! I enjoy being on the Seasonal Simplicity tour with you!
Hope you are having a blessed time getting ready for Christ’s birthday. I was noticing your kitchen bar stools and tried to find you make-over but to no avail. Did you feature their makeover? Cute.
Yes, I did feature the stool makeover. Since reading your comment I added a link in the blog to it. You’ll find the makeover here: https://town-n-country-living.com/every-kitchen-island-needs-couple.html
Thanks for asking about that and have a great weekend!
Merry Christmas Jennifer to you and your family! Your house is always one I look forward to seeing every year, and I think your new kitchen island looks like it was meant to be there, it fits in perfectly. Your whole house is beautifully decorated for the Christmas season, once again. Just one question, when can I come by for some coffee?! I’ll just sit in one of your cozy corners with a magazine, and you won’t even know I’m there! Looks lovely!
I would love to have you drop by for coffee! We can spend a few hours looking through magazines and sharing our favorites. So glad you enjoy my holiday home – thank you so much for your kind words! I hope you and your family have a peaceful and joyful Christmas!
I love your new island, it looks wonderful. I love your kitchen and you did a great job making it merry and bright! Thanks Jennifer for sharing.
I still need to move a few more things into that island. I’m so pleased with the extra storage space. This old house definitely needs more storage options!
As always, your decorating is superb. I love your island❤. And even more storage! I think I need one. Husband just chimed in and said I don’t need more storage, I need to declutter. Hmmphh.
Your hubby sounds like my hubby. I do like the island though. I haven’t even filled it up yet. I’m still thinking of more ways to add storage in this old house of ours. It’s a never-ending battle. Hope you have a great weekend!
Sorry to disagree with you, Jen; but the star of your kitchen still remains your amazing tile floor!! 🙂
BTW: Wonderful Christmas cheer going on in that kitchen! Inspiring decor, as usual!
Ha! The only problem with that green tile floor is whenever you drop something you know it’s going to break. It’s a good color for Christmas though!
Your island is beautiful and I love that flea market crock! All of your attention to detail makes everything so cozy for Christmas!
Thank you, Laura! So fun to be on the tour with you!
Jennifer I’m loving all your beautiful touches. We too had the problem with some too high stools and I ended up cutting the legs, worked like a charm.
Thanks for the tip, Jaime! I’ll have hubby cut the legs off. Great idea!
Beautiful! I love that new island and you will love having it for prepping holiday treats. Beautiful decor as always. That lamb planter is my fave too! Have a wonderful holiday – Kristy
Thanks, Kristy! I’m definitely going to enjoy the added counter top space that the new island provides!
Love your gorgeous kitchen, Jennifer! That new island is absolutely perfect in the space. How fun that you can make it a little breakfast spot too! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Adorable ! Love the island !!
