Today, I am sharing our Christmas Kitchen Tour. When Jenna from Wife In Progress asked if I would like to join this blog tour, I jumped on board. Whenever I have the chance to join my blog friends in these tours it is so much fun. I am always inspired by their homes and love sharing all of them with you. (You will find all of their beautiful tours at the end of this post.)
Just like everyone else, our kitchen is the hub of the home. It is our busy room, the place that gets used the most and the room we are in all the time. Just like the rest of our home, our kitchen is small. A couple of years ago, we DIYed a kitchen makeover that has made the biggest difference in our kitchen. The small things we did, made us love our kitchen more. It didn’t function the best before and it was so orange that I felt like I stepped back into a 1970’s sitcom every time I was in it.
Since the makeover, the kitchen has become a fun spot to decorate and “set up” when we entertain.
For this Christmas Kitchen Tour, I set up the kitchen like I will when we are making Moscow Mules and celebrating this season!
It is the simple touches added here and there that make the biggest impact.
This tour was made possible by some frugal shopping. I bought the copper mugs on clearance two years ago. I bought the greenery and a bag of cranberries at Walmart while I was there. The tree was a Target dollar spot find and the Christmas tree stirrers were a Target clearance find last year. The glass pitcher was a yard sale find and then beautiful wood stand is from the Hearth & Hand line at Target.
I would normally never buy greenery at a store, but while I was at Walmart, I couldn’t pass up the big bunch of holiday greenery for $3.50. We have been so busy fixing up the duplex that I am taking all the help I can get to get everything else done.
BUT, I have a question and a confession to make. Is this stuff supposed to smell good? I did not like the smell of the greenery at all when I got it home. I didn’t smell at all like I thought so after I set up the kitchen, I made a nice little display with it on our front porch. (Okay……… I just added it to a galvanized bucket on the porch.) The mess alone made my OCD jump into high gear. #keepingitreal
I didn’t add a lot of decor to the Christmas Kitchen Tour because I don’t want to have to move it all when I am working in there every day. Any more, I am finding that the simpler, the better for me.
A few touches of green in any room makes me happy.
I didn’t have to do a ton to make our kitchen ready to welcome guests and the holidays with open arms. The cranberries alone make me think of Christmas and a Moscow Mule bar is always a welcomed treat around the holidays, don’t you think? 🙂
How do you add Christmas to your kitchen?
