Whilst you may be completely focused on decorating your entrance hall, living room, and even your dining space for your big celebration, there’s one area you might overlook: the kitchen. This year, reconsider by giving the heart of the home the attention it deserves for the holiday season. From preparing dinner with your family to chatting over mince pies and a cup of tea, there is no denying that the kitchen is a high-traffic space during the season.
1. Decorate your Chairs
They may be easy to overlook, but don’t miss the opportunity to make your kitchen chairs a part of your holiday decor this year. Try an elegant red ribbon and fir branches.
2. Gingerbread House
Is there a child out there who doesn’t love a gingerbread house during the holidays? Make your creation a part of your holiday decor by putting it on full display along with your favorite bakes.
3. Festive Towels
Consider a set of patterned kitchen tea towels to complement your dishes, in holiday patterns, ranging from red and white stripes to snowflakes.
Deck out your kitchen island with a pretty combination of white candlesticks and winter foliage. It’s sure to make preparing and serving your holiday food more enjoyable.
5. Pretty Wreaths

6. Holiday Ceramics

8. Christmas scents
For a more natural and understated holiday vibe, look to traditional winter ingredients like pinecones, cinnamon, acorns, and dried fruit. Place them in a bowl and, voila! They look great and the smell with fill the kitchen with Christmas scents.
Pimp up open shelving with green spruce, pinecones and masses of fairy lights to bring that all important magical Christmas sparkle
10. No fuss Tree
For most, the Christmas tree sits in the living room. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have one in the kitchen as well! Opt for a faux tree for easier assembly and clean up.
Have a great Weekend
