Are you finished with your Christmas decorating? Well, if you still need some ideas, come take a tour of our kitchen decorated in simple farmhouse style. Hopefully, I can inspire you to try some new things in your home.
Farmhouse Christmas Decor for the Kitchen:
With the craziness of the holiday season, I like to keep my Christmas decor simple. Since my kitchen is white, just adding a bit of color can make the room feel extra festive. This year, I bought a set of red and white buffalo check curtains and I am thrilled with the way they stand out against the white cabinets and chairs. Of course, now I wish my walls were white and not tan…but I am not about to repaint just to match the curtains. After all, I only plan on keeping them up for Christmas.
In keeping with the farmhouse look, I set a simple table using Christmas greenery and some galvanized metal accessories.
For the centerpiece, I just mixed fresh and faux greens in my galvanized metal container. You can’t get more casual-farmhouse than that.
From there, I stacked simple white plates on my galvanized metal chargers. Since I love plaid this time of year, I added some red plaid napkins then anchored each setting with a black and white checked place mat. I love how the red ties in with the new curtains.
White pitchers work so well with farmhouse decor so I flanked the metal container with two pitchers filled with greens.
And since I still had cranberries left over from Thanksgiving, I filled some glass hurricanes with them.
To continue with the farmhouse theme, I wrapped mini gifts with plain craft paper, tied them up with red and white baker’s twine and added a sprig of fresh greenery. Of course, these “gifts” are purely decorative. Inside, they’re just wood blocks from the kids’ old toy box in the basement!
Most likely, I will just recreate this tablescape Christmas morning for the four of us anyway. Each year, I try to come up with something different for our family breakfast. In fact, I think my boys would be disappointed if I didn’t create something special each year.
Even though I mix real and faux greenery on my table, last year I tried an easier way to decorate my chandelier. Now I will never bother with the hassle of fresh greens on the chandelier again!
Farmhouse Christmas Decor Throughout the Kitchen:
Let’s step away from the table and take a look around the rest of the kitchen…
Across the room, I added a few holiday touches to the stove area and cabinets. The rustic deer and pine cones tie into the brown of the table and island for a casual look. For the past several years, I’ve been hanging mini wreaths on the cabinets. I love the look and since I leave the hooks inside the doors, each year it takes just minutes to hang the wreaths.
To carry the red throughout the kitchen, I used red and white checked ribbon to hang the mini wreaths. The buffalo check towel ties in nicely too.
Recently, I attended one of those craft/painting parties and made this wood Merry Christmas box. Well actually, the box was already “made” but I stained and stenciled it. I think it makes the perfect addition to my island.
As you can see, we had a beautiful sunny day today. Unfortunately, it was freezing! Although, I guess I can’t complain since it is December after all…
At least my kitchen is feeling warm with all the cozy farmhouse decor!
And before long, there will be snow out these windows….Fingers crossed for a white Christmas!
