The mantle over my stove and the space above the refrigerator were the only Kitchen spots to get much Christmas attention this year.
I’ve had the burlap wrapped twin trees for years and they’re still one of my favorites. Can you believe when I first bought them I covered up the burlap with velvet and toile. They looked really cute that way but now I’m loving the burlap.
The space above the fridge turned out really cute. I finally got around to recovering the plain square white lamp shade (that had bugged me forever) with burlap. Now I like this lamp much better.
The large star is actually a tray that I placed standing up with a bit of fresh greenery and a gold glitter “Peace” sign.
I think this is my most favorite vignette I’ve had in this space.
This is how my kitchen table looked for days on end. My girls and I began working on an advent calendar, which you can see on the wall behind the table, but it’s still missing 7 days.
Oh, well. Kaleigh told me that this was the year to make it and next year would be the year to use it! Sounds good to me.
The random lamp you see in this picture was displaced during a bought of furniture moving and had yet to find it’s new home. You’ll be glad to know it’s no longer sitting in the middle of the kitchen.
When I finally cleaned off the kitchen table just before a Christmas party there was no time to mess with a center piece. So I threw what fruit we had into a large dough bowl with a bunch of fresh greenery and called it done.
I actually love the look of the oranges against the fresh greenery.
The dining room center piece is a collection of three items including my favorite holiday decor purchase this year.
I found the silver tree last year at LaurieAnna’s...
and the over sized glitter jingle bells (which I also used on the front door wreath) were a 2013 LauriAnna’s purchase…
But my favorite find was the driftwood deer from HomeGoods. Isn’t he cute!?!
