I have to hustle here getting our home posted for Christmas. Thanksgiving being so late threw me out of whack. Christmas is almost here, time is just moving so quickly.
Today I am showing the rest of the kitchen. I made sure I added some touches to our hood this is fun to decorate. I have a love of bottle brush trees and found these to at craft fair I went to last year in an old castle we attend in NJ every year. They use this as a way to raise money for upkeep and it is such a beautiful place.
I saw these and was excited to add them for my décor this year. I placed them on decorative boxes I purchased from JoAnn’s. I also bought this garland at the same fair and I love that it drapes so well and has some brown touches to give it a realistic look.
I didn’t feel like hanging my kissing ball this year. It is pretty so I placed it on a Christmas plate I had from years ago. Next to that I used a glass jar and added a candle and placed a French ornament that I won in a giveaway. I also have many pieces of beaded fruit so I place a bunch in an antique pitcher from John’s aunt they she brought back from Ireland many, many years ago.
Then I decided to add just a bit to the shelves where the microwave is and used two small cloches. One holds small items, a piece of wrapping paper I rolled up and tied with velvet ribbon, a small bottle brush tree and ceramic skates that holds toothpicks. I decided to tuck a piece of greenery inside. My other cloche holds a winter bird house I found at Michael’s. I also used a small Christmas tray found at the same craft fair I mentioned earlier.
On the other end of the counter I wanted to use my blackboard art with another bottle brush tree I found at Home Goods and used a ceramic Cocoa mug I received as a gift a few years ago.
This is the other side of the kitchen where I placed some gilded artichokes I purchased from a store Ivanka’s. I go to this shop around the holidays every year. I wanted to use this sparkly final I had with a touch of greenery to add warmth.
There you have the rest of our kitchen for Christmas.
