Christmas Kitchen----Part 1

I have been patiently waiting for our Thanksgiving cooking to be finished so I could start decorating the kitchen for Christmas.   
  Our family gathered in the kitchen to cook over the Thanksgiving week end and it really needed a deep cleaning before we begin all the Christmas cooking.     I cleared everything off the counters and washed well as the cupboards.......then I was ready to start decorating.

I started decorating  the counter to the left of the sink first.     I don't know why,  but I always start my seasonal and holiday decorating on this counter and move around the kitchen.

I have several kitchen fairies to help me with the Christmas cooking this year.   It's going to be great to have them here to help with all the goodies I plan to make!

This fairy's name is Candy Cane and he will be in charge of making all the candy we'll need for holiday entertaining

The next Christmas vignette was so much fun to create.....

This fairies name is Apple Jack and he is my head baker.     

Since my kitchen has a farmhouse theme going on year round,   I added buffalo check ribbon to all the fairies so they would fit!

Apple Jack is a master cake baker and the decorated cookies he makes for Santa are to die for!

Next is the stove.    

I created a vignette on each side of the stove.....and added a Christmas garland and sign to the galvanized metal back splash.

I also added some b/r check ribbon to the existing b/w check ribbon to my white enamel lid burner covers.

This is Apple Spice.....he is Apple Jack's helper

This is the last counter I decorated today.....still have more counters in the kitchen yet to do!

This little guy is the first Mark Roberts fairy the kids bought for me many many years ago.     

He will take care of making all the pie's we'll need over the holidays.

     Apple Pie is my favorite fairy,    

I still have lots of Christmas cheer to spread around  in here,   so I'll be back soon with a tour of the entire kitchen!
