Happy Holidays!!! Can’t believe that is almost Thanksgiving!! Our home has been filled with a nasty flu, and because of that we have cleaned basically every inch of the house. I’m not kidding! Kevin even disinfected the crayons! I wanted to share our holiday kitchen decor with you this week, and since I’m not really up to taking photos right now, I’m going to share photos from last year! I have it decorated the exact same way! And it really does look like this right now, because thanks to all of our cleaning, it’s white and sparkling in here! So much of it is still in stock, or back in stock for the holidays, that I had to share it with you all again!
Holiday Kitchen Decor
Let’s talk about my kitchen holiday decor! Let me start with the wreaths on our kitchen counter stools. This is my absolute favorite detail in the entire kitchen so I have to talk about it first! Basically, I got these beautiful and simple 12 inch wreaths and attached them to each one of our chairs. If you’re wondering how I did it, you’re gonna laugh when I tell you! I attached them using twist ties that you get in the box with your garbage bags. You know those little ties that you wrap around the top and twist to close it off. I basically twisted three of them together to create one long twist tie.
The back of our chairs have little tiny holes in them so I put the twist tie around the wreaths and through the chair and secured it on the other side. Plus the twist ties I used are actually a tan color and they blend in perfectly with the back of the chair so you can’t even see them when you’re looking at the front of the chair. These stools get a lot of use and they have held up so well, I highly recommend them!
And then I used some beautiful wire burlap ribbon to tie these bows and secure them with a piece of command strip tape. I love using wired ribbon for things like this because the ribbon stays exactly how you place it. I also used wired burlap ribbon when I hung the wreath in our formal living room as you can see in this blog post. Anyway, I just absolutely love the wreaths on the back of the chairs in the kitchen. You could also do them on the backs of your chairs in your dining room or your breakfast table. It’s just such a special and beautiful detail that I think people really appreciate! Plus, the wreaths aren’t overly holiday. So they could totally be decorated with some flowers in the spring so you can keep them up all year. To be honest, I might do that this year! I love the little pop of color that these wreaths give our kitchen, while still remaining so neutral!
Next, let’s talk about the garland in my kitchen. This garland is so affordable at only $15 and I only needed to use two of them to complete my entire kitchen look! I basically cut both pieces in half since they were 9 feet each, and then used three of those four pieces to put on the light fixtures hanging in the kitchen, and then one of the pieces above the vent over our stove.
Last year, I did a poll on my Instagram stories and you guys voted that I should run the garland up each light, instead of running them across the 3! Running the garland up the lights won by a landslide, so that is what I did!!! I got so many compliments from my guests last holiday season that I did it again! So thanks so much again for voting for that!
I also really love this garland because it is a wired. Meaning that however you bend it, it stays in that exact shape. The only thing I did to secure it was bend the wire at the top to hook it in the top link of the pendant chain and then wrap it around the chain and it stayed perfectly in place all on it’s own.
The Fresh Cut Christmas Trees sign is seriously the most affordable decor purchase I’ve ever made! It’s not only so pretty but it’s only $10! For a sign this size to only be $10 is mind boggling to me! I just love it!
I wanted to add some festive decorations to the center of the island, so I went with this 3-foot tall tree. I love how it’s not super full like other trees are. It’s the exact look I was searching for and I was so psyched when I found it for only $8! To make it white, I just sprayed it with snow spray! I used snow spray on the real Christmas tree in our house too. You guys know I love white in my house, so I had to add some white to the trees too 😉
I added the silver bulbs that I got out of a pack of ornaments that I used for the tree we have in our front formal living room. I bought this pack of ornaments because I needed a decent amount of silver bulbs for our 9-foot tree in our formal living room. I also added a little scrap piece of garland I had leftover when I was cutting up the garland and put it in around the tree. And used these pretty glass Christmas trees that light up! Molly loves it when we turn them on! I really like that the decorations in the center have a light look to contrast the greenery I used in the rest of the kitchen. Plus, if you don’t have an all white kitchen like we do, it’s great to decorate with light and white Christmas decorations to give the room a brighter look!
Did you notice the wreath I have hanging on the wall over by the fridge in the corner of the kitchen? I love how elegant and understated it is. You probably noticed based on the other decor in my house that I really like to keep things simple because I think they are most impactful that way. So I was looking for a plain green wreath with small pine cones that had a wispy look. And by that I mean it didn’t look super full. So I stumbled across this wreath for under $30 and it was exactly what I was looking for. If you want a classic and simple wreath for your front door or inside your home, this one is a great fit! And I use the same burlap ribbon that I used on the wreaths on the back of our kitchen counter stools to add a simple bow detail. I absolutely love it! In fact, I was able to use one roll of burlap ribbon to create all the bows in my kitchen and I still have some left over!
Oh! While we are here, I will also link to the post where I talk about the decor and furniture in my Kitchen Home Tour. That way if anything catches your interest in these photos, you can get more details. I tried to link some of them throughout this post, but if I’ve missed anything please let me know if you have questions!
Well I think that’s everything! Let me know if you have any questions! I couldn’t be more in love with our kitchen’s Christmas decor, so I hope you all enjoyed this blog post and find it useful to help you decorate your kitchen this holiday season! I’d love to know what you guys think or any other ideas you might have for holiday decor in the comments below. I still have a bunch of other spaces in our home that I want to decorate and I’m always open to other peoples ideas!
