Moving on to the rest on our Christmas decor in the kitchen!
It is not much, like I said before, just a few touches here and there, but just enough 
to make our home a little happier for the Holiday Season.

We are expecting to have a very quiet Christmas, just the four of us, so the truth is, this year our decor is very simple.

I did not buy anything new.
I used everything I already had from previous years.

Please come on in!

First thing you see is the breakfast table to which I just added a centerpiece I had from Kirklands and put two small Christmas picks on the candle holders I usually have on the table. I also added two Christmas pillows to the end chairs.

And, in the back, my little Christmas tree sits on my small table, also from Kirklands, that my husband bought me for Christmas three years ago. 
You can read about this tree and ornaments here

On the island, I used the items I already had, like my tiered metal basket.
 On the top, I added a Santa, red poinsettias, 
a couple of little Christmas trees and some little gift ornaments.

On the bottom, a candy dish full of chocolate kisses, (couldn't help myself LOL) candy canes, more of the same flowers and some ornaments. It sits on a new runner I bought several months ago and I hadn't had a chance to use yet.

On my Fleur de Lis candle holders I put the candles I bought at Kohl's last year 
and decorated my old jar with some ornaments.

 And the only thing new in the whole kitchen is this little bird nest ornament 
that my daughter bought for me a few days ago. Isn't it cute?

And, on the opposite counter, just added more flowers and a wooden apple Christmas bunch to the metal box.

 And, this is the view leaving the kitchen.
And, now, I better get myself off this computer, get in that kitchen and start cooking. :)
Thank you all for stopping by!

 See you all soon!
