Holiday Kitchen Tour for Christmas

Christmas Decor in the kitchen - a holiday tour for people on a budget.

It's time to celebrate Christmas with a tour of my kitchen. The workhouse of any house. 

Since there is always a blonde barefoot in this kitchen making something, I kept is simple with the decor.

But in other ways I went over the top. Literally.

Adding holiday style to kitchen cabinetry.

The white icy garland on the chandelier is always my favorite. So I repeated it again this year. While taking photos I had a little photo bomber.

Ok he isn't so little. But it is ironic almost every dog we have usually matches our decor.

 I tried to nudge him into another room with treats but he wouldn't budge.

He found a nice warm floor to nap on and wasn't interested in his master needing that spot for her tripod.

 I did some rearranging in the butlers pantry too. I brought out the red stemware and my metallic holiday dishes.

It's still functional though for us. The large white mason jars hold snacks and the galvanized bins hold our festival of bread, muffins and tortillas.

I'd like to go on record and say that the floor is spotless. 

In this house that's the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest. Especially in the winter months when there is salt on our sidewalks.


 If you stop by however in a few days you will see our version of normal.

 I took everything off the tops of my kitchen cabinets. For some reason this holiday season it was bugging me.

So I added branches from an old faux christmas tree, that we cut up.

And I was going to to just move my cast iron skillet to another room for 5 minutes to take this picture, but


welcome to my home.

 I hope you have enjoyed touring the kitchen all decked out for Christmas. Starting tomorrow I will start working on my Christma Day timeline. I like to write out what to do and when to do it, so I don't have to use my brain. I can have all the alcohol I want and not screw up my evening meal.

 For this holiday meal I am looking at twelve family and friends for Christmas dinner.

We are doing everyone's favorite "Steakhouse Fare".
