If you recall, I said that my plan this year was to limit the Christmas decor to the foyer and living room.
But, when I opened the box with my nutcracker collection, I had to set them out. So, in the kitchen they went.
Then out came the red kitchen towels, and the Christmas mugs,
and my Christmas with Southern Living cookbook collection,
and the little tree that my daughter made for me when she was in Pre-K. It looks the same today as it did when she gave it to me. I love thinking of her in class adding the ribbon and ornaments to the tree and calling it done.
Lastly, a wreath replaced the vase of sunflowers on the island, and then I called it done. Like mother, like daughter. :)
If I can find my ribbon, I’ll make a bow for the wreath. And I considered adding cloves to the oranges, but those are for snacking. So, no decorative oranges.
I think my kitchen looks really festive and all I did was incorporate a touch of holiday cheer with my everyday things, and change out a few everyday items for seasonal ones. These simple Christmas decorating ideas prove that decorating for the holidays doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated.
See you in class,
