Christmas Is Starting In The Kitchen

Little by little I started doing a bit of Christmas decorating in the kitchen.  It is always such a fun place to start and I always love a bit of whimsy in my kitchen too.

I had a couple of really small wreaths, perfect for above the range.

A few years ago I found these two fun "ladies" at Goodwill and just couldn't pass them up.  They are so fun with their pretty gingham dresses and aprons.  I imagine them getting ready to bake up something wonderful like a big batch of cookies or maybe a fabulous pie.

I love my little Santa Chef too, he is such a fun guy.  He needs to start cooking too.

My little pixie Elf plopped himself down by the tree.  He is such a really mischievous little guy.  I need to keep an eye on him.

I'm working on a breakfast room tablescape.  I love these sweater reindeer, they are so fun.  This one is resting, I guess he's tired - -

but not this one, he is up and ready to go.

I need to get my act in gear - OUR 2017 CHRISTMAS HOME TOURS begin in just 3 short weeks, so I need to get my decorating done.  Be sure to mark your calendars, we have 30 of the most fabulous bloggers opening the doors to their homes and sharing their Holiday Decor.  30 homes over 5 days - December 4th thru 8th.

Ok, I have a ton of work to do and a lot of decor to get done.  I am hosting Thanksgiving, so I need to get the table in the dining room set and get my shopping done.   I am also knee deep in baking for all the holidays too.  How about you, are you starting any Christmas yet?

  1. Very pretty - I love the sweater-wearing deer. I haven't started decorating yet but the day after Thanksgiving it all gets unpacked! Enjoy your weekend, Marty!

  2. Marty I ADORE the wreaths, sweater deer and the cute teatowel. I went out yesterday and got all the supplies I need to transform my front room and formal dining area into a Charles Dickens Victorian Christmas. I can't wait for the tour!

  3. Love those sweater deers! No we start the day after Thanksgiving.

  4. I still don't know what I'm planning to decorate with at Christmas. I haven't even figured out what I'm eating for Thanksgiving! It will be so much fun for you to decorate for the holidays at your new-to-you home!

  5. I always get such great ideas from you and your blog! I love those wreaths on your kitchen cabinet doors. I never thought of doing that and now I can't wait to get our new home built so I can do that! And I just adore your kitchen chef santa...I NEED one of those! ;) Also, thank you for being one of the tour hostesses. I always spend much too much time looking at everyone else's beautifully decorated homes, but I have to tell you, it gets me into such a wonderful Christmas spirit! Thanks!
