Christmas Kitchen Decorating Ideas

Do you decorate your kitchen for Christmas? It’s pretty easy to create a cozy Christmas kitchen with just a few festive touches!

It’s time for another Celebrating the Seasons Home Tour! If you’re stopping by after a visit with my friend Crissy from First Day of Home, welcome! Her Texas home is so lovely! Many thanks to Leen from Sand Dollar Lane for organizing this wonderful tour!

Christmas Kitchen Cabinet Decor

At first, I was going to make wreaths for my kitchen cabinets. But since I have thirteen cabinets, it would’ve been a lot of work! After a trip to Dollar Tree, however, my plans changed. I spotted these fabulous red plaid bows and knew they would be perfect! Plus, the price was right 😉

To keep my kitchen cabinet Christmas bows in place, I used refills of Command Hook tape. They will stay put throughout the holidays.

Kitchen Island Christmas Centerpiece

We have a large kitchen island, so I wanted to create a show stopping centerpiece. My DIY Bajot Table provided the perfect elevated base for the vignette.

I designed a winter scene inside a covered glass cake plate with bottle brush trees, a wood block church and a deer atop faux snow. Outside the cake plate, I created a larger version of the scene.

Kitchen Window Decor

The kitchen windows are flanked by two potted rosemary plants shaped like trees that I purchased at Costco. The snowman sign is from The Christmas Tree Shop.

The rosemary makes the kitchen smell amazing!

I bought this wreath for $8 at our church bazaar. It was placed between the two windows.

Hot Cocoa Bar

I created a self service Hot Cocoa Stand using a tiered tray on a small counter in the kitchen. Besides looking festive, it encourages people to indulge in this seasonal treat!

Other Christmas Kitchen Decor

I always like to mix in some vintage items with my decor, and Christmas is no exception!
