Kitchen Christmas Ideas For The Holidays
I’ve got my Christmas tree up in my living room, I’ve done my holiday decor shopping, I’ve even made my own lantern—next up on my list are kitchen Christmas ideas! Most people just focus on the living room, dining area, and garden during the holidays, but kitchen Christmas ideas are just as important. A festive kitchen can help you get into the mood, and it will show your house guests how well you pay attention to detail. And I don’t know about you guys, but I spend a lot of time in the kitchen during this season! I bake cookies, whip up a few mugs of hot chocolate, and bond with my family in the kitchen just as much as I do in the living room. So there’s no reason why you shouldn’t try some of these kitchen Christmas ideas!
1. Wreaths By The Window
Place some wreaths by the window, by the counter, on your cabinets—anywhere! These wreaths by the kitchen sink will make washing the dishes and cleaning up a bit more festive, don’t you think?
2. Ribbons ‘Round Chairs
Here’s an easy way to add some festive cheer to your kitchen: wrap ribbons ’round your bar stools or counter chairs! You can even throw in a festive wreath for a show-stopping decor idea.
3. Small Christmas Trees
Christmas trees are some of the simplest ways to bring holiday cheer to your kitchen. But I know we don’t all have space for a full-sized one, so a mini tree will work just as well. I love the cheese grater ornament on top!
4. Festive Mug Displays
You’ll be drinking lots of warm beverages this season, so why not make a functional display a bit more holiday-ready? All you need are red mugs, candy canes, and a few red and green ornaments!
5. Christmas Signs
Get creative with your Christmas signs! Don’t just stick to “Merry Christmas” or the usual phrases. “Elf treats” is just one of the many creative signs you can use for the holidays. Your guests will love the ingenious labels for sure!
6. Gingerbread Displays
Gingerbread displays are Christmas staples I always love having around the kitchen. Upgrade yours with miniature Christmas trees and other Christmas decor to create a gingerbread wonderland, right in your own kitchen!
7. Hot Cocoa Stations
Hot cocoa is, without a doubt, one of the best parts of the season. Don’t you agree? So having a hot cocoa station can remind you of the holidays every time you step in to your kitchen! It also makes peppermint hot cocoa even easier to make.
8. Warm Shades
If you’re not ready to go full-blast with the kitchen Christmas ideas, try a more subtle approach. Pops of red and white, as well as warm wood furniture can give your kitchen a cozy holiday feel.
If you’re the type who needs flowers and plants in your kitchen, go for festive flowers! Wreaths are great, but poinsettias are eye-catching pops of color you’ll love to have around the kitchen.
10. Hanging Ornaments
Ornaments aren’t just for your living room. Hang up some Christmas balls or ribbons around the kitchen. It’ll also make your living room and kitchen decor more cohesive!
11. Holiday Farmhouse
The holidays are all about spending time with loved ones and family at home. So farmhouse-inspired kitchen Christmas ideas can instantly turn your space into a cozy sanctuary! Baskets, touches of red, and sparkly trinkets are all you need.
