Christmas in the Kitchen - Santa's Kitchen

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones!

And of course, the day after Thanksgiving (other than Black Friday Shopping of course), marks the official start of Christmas Season! Hooray!!!

And as you've seen last week, I have been on a decorating frenzy for Christmas and have shared with you the rooms that have only "subtle" decorations ( Library HERE & Bedroom HERE). well that all changes today. ;-)

Let's start of with our Kitchen Christmas Decorations!

My Modern Santa's Kitchen 
 Because of my little daughter, I wanted to have a kid-fun Christmas and the kitchen is no exception.

Do you see what I see up above?

Yup, my milk glass collection got it's rest and my Christmas village is out!

I spray painted some of the gold houses red and pink since they will blend in the background if I didn't.

Santa is everywhere!

What's a Christmas kitchen without sweets? A lot of mine aren't real though! ;-)

Hot Cocoa Station is a must during Christmas and winter in our household

Added LED lights underneath my crystal cake stand and topped it with my sweet ornaments

I added some of my snowflake ornaments around the chandelier by the sink! 
Our Simple Advent Calendar

Moved my, I mean, Mrs. Santa's Brass Collection atop the Office area...

... and added snowflakes all around
I switched the chairs out too from the Dining room to the Breakfast area.
The North Pole is Ice cold and I think the "Ice Chairs" are perfect right now.
Snowflakes on the ceiling as well cast a beautiful glow at night!

Of course the lighting got some tinsel too!

The first Christmas tree that went up in our household -literally
I added 4 sets of LED lights on this baby and also sewed on (yes I do sew, a little) little jingle bell ornaments on. 
I had to hang it way up since little Sophia went crazy jingling the whole thing when it wasn't hung way up!

Added Natural garland on my windows - simple and pretty I think.

Mistletoe and pinecones smell oh-so-heavenly at this time.
I hope you enjoyed this room tour!

  11. Your kitchen is enchanting and I know Miss Sophia is just delighted with everything...the candy, the village, the advent calendar. I love everything--you are so creative! I don't know where you get your energy with kids, your work, a big home. I so admire you!

    Now let me ask, since we are working on our home at the lake and I'm choosing kitchen stuff, what is your backsplash made of? It looks like white brick. And the counters, wood? I'm in love! Totally undecided on a backsplash and may stick with the simple subway tile I have.
