CHRISTMAS KITCHEN DECORATING IDEAS

The holidays are here and most people LOVE decorating for Christmas! They want to share their festivous with the rest-of-us by displaying holiday trim on every wall, tabletop, entry and mantle - which is wonderful! However, in a kitchen, that can get a little tricky. Since the kitchen is the heart of the home, it also gets the most traffic and needs to remain safe & functional - especially at the holidays. Keeping in mind the need for kitchen surfaces for all the extra holiday baking, cooking, entertaining, gift wrapping and even crafting happening in the kitchen at Christmas, here are some festive ways to add a little Christmas charm without causing a fire alarm. A great place to start is at the kitchen window...



Double wreaths + gingham + buffalo check prints...


Mini wreaths + ribbon - great to make from herbs, boxwood or evergreens...

One large wreath + a rosemary tree...

Wreath option: Pinecone + Garland...

Wreath + urn with paper-whites... 



Besides windows, a hutch or built-in displaying your favorite collection of dishes can be dressed for the holidays, and still be accessible, by framing it with garland to create a festive focal point...


Eating areas can be simply decorated allowing space for gatherings, buffets, crafting and card writing...

Have a banquet breakfast nook without windows? Add charm & light with salvaged architectural windows, converted to mirrors. Hang wreaths with simple ribbon + bow...

Galvanized pails are great containers for the kitchen table - looks festive, fresh, and easy to move...

Even a kitchen cart can get dressed for the holidays: Just use everyday items in holiday colors to keep this small space clutter free...


Speaking of everyday items - This is probably the best way to keep your kitchen clutter free and functional while still being fun and festive for the holidays...

Great to make and give as gifts, PLUS display and use in your own Christmas Kitchen: 
Hand Stamped Wooden Spoon Utensils
(learn how to do at The Idea Room)


Switching Kitchen Textiles to green or RED (especially in a white kitchen!) can be a small change that creates a crisp Christmas look...


Williams-Sonoma has tons of beautiful ticking prints to work in almost any kitchen for Christmas... Add festive flair with aprons, mitts, pot-holders and/or tea towels!


A simple white ceramic pitcher  with fresh rosemary also looks wintry and wonderful...


Other kitchen containers and jars can create unique vessels to add charm to your Christmas Kitchen...


Another way to add charm in the kitchen for Christmas is to use cookie cutters en lieu of ornaments, mixed with fresh cut greens...


The kitchen door is another place to decorate, with-out interrupting to flow & function of your Christmas Kitchen...


 Scents are another important piece of the Christmas presentation puzzle...

This looks like it would smell HEAVENLY and a must to try!


 Dried citrus and small oranges can create a bountiful wreath arrangement for the kitchen...


Small Laurel Wreaths can add a pleasing aroma  plus they are easy to hang on handles of a built-in cabinet or hutch...Learn about the laurel and How to Make a Laurel Wreath at About Garden...


A small arrangement for the kitchen table - with mixed citrus + cloves + fresh greens - can also be a simple way to add a fresh & festive look to your kitchen for Christmas!


Top Three Safety Tips: 
1. IF you are using any candles in the kitchen (or your home) be sure they are either flameless OR if they are wax - Keep candles away from fresh greens, branches, decor & trim: Place wax pillars inside of glass containers, and decorate the outside of that container (with your ribbons & greens).

2. Keep holiday trim - like heavy trimmed garlands or wreaths - away from heat sources (for example: keep greens, wreaths, and ornaments away from the stove back-splash or countertops on either side of the stove).

3. IF you decorate your chandelier over the kitchen island or kitchen table, make sure it's far enough away from heat sources like candles on the table or an island cooktop.




Hope you're inspired to create a festive, and safe Christmas Kitchen. Keep it simple, fun and fresh! Now it's time to put together a gathering + menu and entertain!
