8 Easy Ideas to Decorate Your Kitchen for Christmas
Today is the first day of December and it is officially the holiday season. I love adding simple and easy decorations to my kitchen that are both festive and functional. With these 8 easy, budget-friendly ideas, you can get your kitchen ready for Christmas too!
1. Add Seasonal Linens
Adding fresh, seasonal linens is an easy and budget-friendly way to add some Christmas cheer to your kitchen. You don’t have to completely change out all of your daily linens. Simply, place a pretty new dishtowel in an eye-catching spot or add new runner to your table.
2. Decorate with Wreaths
Wreaths aren’t just for exterior doors. Add a wreath to an interior door, on the interior of a window or on a your cabinet doors. Along with the greens, the ribbon and embellishments will bring a pop of color and texture to your space.
3. Add Greenery
I love bringing greenery into my home. When you can’t do fresh greenery, use faux. Nowadays, the quality of faux greenery has improved and so many look very realistic. Along with wreaths, adding small artificial trees, garland, and small picks of greens can add a natural touch.
4. Create a Hot Cocoa Bar
Have you ever created a hot cocoa bar? Use a tray to gather your supplies to create a hot cocoa bar. This wooden tray is from Target’s Dollar Spot. Keep it simple with marshmallows, hot cocoa mix, along with a few candy canes. Wouldn’t this be a great spot to warm up?
5. Light a Pretty Candle
Whether you purchase a scented candle or make this Simple DIY Holiday Jar Floating Candles with Boxwood and Cranberries, the soft glow of candlelight will make your kitchen cozy and inviting.
6. Decorate with Ornaments
Christmas ornaments are not just for the tree! Use ornaments in unexpected places to add a pop of color, a festive word, or a holiday touch. This wood slice ornament is being used to as a napkin holder.
7. Use Seasonal Dishes & Mugs
You don’t need a whole new set of dishes for the holidays. Adding a set of holiday side plates or mugs is a great way to bring a festive touch to your Christmas kitchen. I recently found these Santa Claus mugs from Pottery Barn. They are my favorite because they remind me of ones that my grandmother had owned. When I see them, it takes me back to my grandma’s kitchen.
8. Create Small Vignettes
A vignette is a small grouping of decorative items to create interest. I recently made these ribbon wrapped trees. By just gathering them on a Dollar Tree charger plate, with this jingle bell ribbon and greens, I was able to create a pretty centerpiece for the table. What items could you gather to create some vignettes in your kitchen?
