Christmas in the Kitchen

I like to decorate the kitchen right after I do the breakfast room. We do cook so I try not to overdo it as it has to be functional too. Here's what I did this year. I start with the buffet area and do what I call my "Gingerbread Bar". It started out one year with a gingerbread luminary candle holder. From then it grew to this, and I love it all. I didn't get a close up of the candle holder, it is the piece on the left.
 These are Mr. and Mrs. Claus holding their gingerbread houses. They are Byers Choice dolls.

 This large, lit gingerbread house was a gift from Joe several years ago.  I add the "Kindles" which are the little bakers also by Byers Choice.

 I found this runner several years ago too and knew it would be perfect for here.
 These candy trees were found at CTS (Christmas Tree Shops).
 This was found at CTS also and Joe drilled a hole in the back for a light for me.


 On top of the fridge is a snowman made of SUGAR!, my scale with a snowman and a lit package.
 This year I put Christmas dishes in my glass front cabinets above the gingerbread bar.

 And these little packages.

 I created this little vignette on the counter by the sink.

 I placed the lamp on a sled and surrounded it with snowmen and flocked trees.
 Love the matching lampshade. This was a gift from a friend years ago and I treasure it.

 Looking around the kitchen, another Mrs. Claus and my candy tree that I will share later.
 and a baking Santa. Both are from Kohls.
 My utensil holder is filled with red utensils at Christmas.
 An Led Candle sits here. The holly dish was made by my best friends Mother and that is where Joe puts his wallet when we come in.
 On the breakfast bar we have more snowmen.
 And I found 2 plaid LED candles.
 This Snowman came from Kirklands and goes SO well with my kitchen tree. I will share that later as this post got TOO long;)


Thanks for your visit at this VERY busy time of the year! I can't believe how quickly Christmas is coming! I hope you are enjoying your Christmas season....or whatever holiday you observe.

  3. Pinky: This post is a favorite of mine. I love the gingerbread area and I am crazy for your snowman. But I especially love the view into your family room and seeing that gorgeous Santa I so love. A happy and festive kitchen and I know anything baked in this space will be grand.
