Hello, everyone!
I normally don't do a post on Monday mornings, since Tuesdays at Our Home link party will be live 
later on this afternoon, but with only ten days left before Christmas (can you believe it?) I figured I better 
get my pictures organized and up on the blog.

Today I am sharing with you our kitchen all decorated for the upcoming holidays.

Our kitchen gets a lot of use all year long, but this time of the year it is one of the rooms where
 everyone loves to gather. 
The decorations are simple, since a lot of cooking and eating will be going on in here and 
I need most of the counter space.
 I did start by setting up a simple vignette on the island.

I made a new burlap runner to match the new pillow covers in the breakfast area.

And a few small Christmas vignettes have been added around the room.

In the breakfast area I added the placemats I had from past Christmas and I used my old Kirklands centerpiece.
This was a Spring swag and all I did was replaced the flowers with some red poinsettias and finished it 
with some Christmas plaid ribbon.

I also made some new pillow covers.

Behind the table you will find the little Christmas tree I set up every year decorated with ornaments 
and memories of Christmas past.

On the window seat, just a couple of Christmas touches.

And on the window over the sink, I added the same little poinsettia wreath I made last year.

And that's it! Simple but cheerful and easy to work around when my cooking marathon starts next week. :)

I thank you all for stopping by!
Tuesdays at Our Home will be live this afternoon. 
Hope to see you there!

Until then!

  6. Maria Elena, you've done such a great job of decking the halls of your home! I love the wreath with the red mesh, and the centerpiece on your table. But my favourite thing is the winter wonderland tray; it's darling!


  7. Love your Christmas kitchen! I know what you mean about needing the counter space during the holidays. I'm always so tempted to bring out more decorative items in my kitchen, but then I remember that I'm going to need a lot of counter space for all my baking. :) Love how you were able to use the spring swag by using some poinsettias! Smart girl! :)
