I am so excited because I am finally sharing our kitchen all decorated for Christmas.
Disclaimer: There are also affiliate links in this post. But I only share things I love, and think you will too.
The legendary letter board holiday wreath made an appearance, naturally.
I know these tin bells look vintage, but you can actually buy them on Amazon, Etsy, or even eBay. HERE’S where I got some of mine.
You know, I just realized that I still have’t blogged this awesome butcher-block island Silas built me?! I promise to do it early next year. I’m obsessed with it.
One thing I REALLY wanted to do was a Letters To Santa Garland. So the kids and I made one & I am hoping to add to it with new letters from the kids each year.
I added the garland a little DIY letter ornaments to my Alpine Fir from Balsam Hill. This one is the 5 ft version, but I built a stand so it could be a little taller.
These gingerbread houses are actually made out of pallets. They are a hit every year, and I seriously need to make more. Check out the tutorial on how to make them HERE.
I’m a big fan of having a theme for every space. So having similar items sprinkled throughout is a must.
Okay, like half this post is going to be photos of this garland. Haha!
You thought I was lying! Seriously obsessed with it.
I LOVE using copper LED lights. This year I upgraded to plug in ones. My battery operated ones just ate through batteries too fast.
On my island I have my antique candle from Antique Candle Co. This one is Cotton Stem’s collaboration candle, “Country Pear.” I love how they make candles in one of a kind antiques. This one is my favorite.
From this view you can see my Ikea pot rack that I built (tutorial HERE!)
Moving back into the dinging room portion of my kitchen, I have my hutch full of fun things like these DIY pomegranate candles, and some Christmas tree lot signs I made as homage to my husband’s family’s farm which used to be a Christmas tree farm. How cool is that?
Check out my salt dough recipe for homemade Christmas ornaments HERE.
This space just has ALL those cozy feels.
I got some metal mugs, after the kids broke one too many of my other ones. So these might be a permanent addition to our home decor.
The Santa mugs on the other hand.. those are all vintage finds from eBay & Etsy.
Over on my counter, I carried over the “Letters to Santa” garland theme.
Aad I know you guys are going to ask about the muffin tin. It’s also a one of a kind candle poured into an antique piece from Antique Candle Co. They do restocks on these type of candles all the time, so keep a look out!
Like these DIY Snow Globe Jars I made? Check out my tutorial HERE.
I tried to keep a good ratio of decorated spaces vs blank spaces. I find that rooms need to breathe. So having areas in the house that aren’t all decked out are a good way to balance out heavy clusters of decor in other areas.
Here’s a good example of some subtle decor next to a space left blank.
I love how a tray of cookies looks out in the open. I should seriously make some gingerbread cookies just for that purpose.
I LOVE this little home of ours. Sometimes I can’t believe how far we’ve come. It just seems like it’s always supposed to have been exactly like this.
Can you believe that there used to be a WALL separating these two spaces.
The fact that we have been the ones to renovate this house with our own two hands just makes me so proud. It’s been a TON of work, but it’s so beautiful now.
You can see the “Before” walk through HERE.
I treasure each and every memory we create together around this table as a family. Every dinner, every art project, and even the memories of building this table.
Yep you heard that right- Silas built me this table. The building plans can be found HERE.
Funny thing is that as long as this table is… I had him make me a second one so that we can add it as an extension for big gatherings like Thanksgiving… and all the art painting parties I host here. You can see both tables in this photo.
All those projects and hard work have lead us here…
Making so many cozy memories in this kitchen…
So that’s a little tour of my Christmas Kitchen.
