Decorate your Kitchen for Christmas

   With all the holiday cooking that happens in our kitchen, it is a regular gathering place for the family.  So, I want it to have the same holiday feeling as the rest of the house.    I decorate the counters but I keep the island cleaned off for cooking and serving!
The "food" on the counters is all "fat free", but there will be plenty of holiday goodies on the island.

I spotted this ceramic three tiered cake at Hobby Lobby the other day and thought it would look perfect with my other ceramic food.  I also got my Chef Nutcracker there....  

I have had this hand painted cake plate for many years....

it is almost always out on the counter.   I hope you aren't tired of seeing it!

We have the Keurig set up on this side of the kitchen and a regular pot on the other side by the sink....we've found it's handier there.

I have a large coffee cup and plenty of flavored coffees for holiday entertaining.
We have a friend in Alaska that sent us these wonderful flavored coffees for the holidays...yummy

Don't forget to decorate your kitchen for Christmas!


  1. Oh i love it all, how pretty. That tiered cake is amazing, what a super find. Hugs, Marty

  2. Love your crocheted doilies and the background they provide! So pretty!

  3. Oh Penny, your kitchen looks sooo festive and cute!... I LOVE all of your nutcrackers!... I spent this morning searching all of the places you told me about trying to find me some cute ones... I did find a cute Baker nutcracker for my own kitchen, and a set of four small pastel colored ones... but nothing like yours darnit!... I even called Hobby Lobby and they said they only had orange ones... your coffee station looks so fun and I LOVE your pink cup!... you have got to be the Queen of Christmas decor right now... I love it all!... xoxo Julie Marie
