When the very lovely Carrie at Lovely, Etc. asked if I would like to participate in her Very Merry Christmas Home tour, I was flattered. Honored. Humbled …
and accepted right away.
Especially when she added in a PayPal $500 cash giveaway (see below to enter).
I also knew immediately what I wanted to share with you all for the tour.
Christmas in the Kitchen!
It’s a space in my home that hasn’t received much love from me on the blog. Well, until this past summer when I labored over it laboriously for months.
And to celebrate it’s transformation, I thought it was only right to bring Christmas in the kitchen. In red and white.
I haven’t added Christmas to the kitchen in years. Not since way back when we were new homeowners. And I found these cute little wreaths at a store that no longer exists here in Chicago …
UPDATE: I’ve done a little research to try and track down similar wreaths for you. Mine measure about 5-5 1/2″ from end to end. I found a set of 4″ wreaths on Amazon (click here for more).* I also found a set of 6″ wreaths on Amazon — click here for more*.
UPDATE: I attached the wreaths to the cabinets using painter’s tape on the back side of the doors. Other options include thumbtacks or removable Command hooks and/or strips.
Way back then, I hung them on red ribbons on my then-builder-grade-orangey-oak cabinets.
And I called it a day.
But this year, I’ve upped the Merry.
Very merry much so. Starting with the 5/8″ red & white candy stripe ribbon* I hung the wreaths from.
It’s like Christmas exploded in here, starting with my Christmas advent calendar (tutorial here) …
It makes me smile every morning when I walk into the kitchen.
I love looking at my spindley trees while I fill the tea kettle with water.
And then there’s the Christmas tree “You Cut Tree” sign that I color-matched to a favorite pillow (tutorial here) …
I even tried my hand at a Very Merry vignette …
In case you missed it, I shared my Christmas dining room last week (click here):
