Christmas in the Kitchen

Christmas has arrived in the kitchen and it smells like balsam and gingerbread with a sprinkle of peppermint.

I tried my hand at making wreaths this year.  We cut greens from the yard.  I attached small bunches of the mixed greens with wire to wire wreath forms.  The bows are made with red stripe jute upholstery webbing.

The gingerbread house is the centerpiece.

 There are greens in an old blue bucket tied with a cinnamon star ornament made by my step daughter.  The empty lobster claw shell is from the biggest lobster my husband ever caught – 15 lbs.

There are more candy canes on the kitchen window sill, because let’s face it, nothing says Christmas like candy canes.

    How wonderful is your kitchen?! I love it! You did a great job on the wreaths. Loving the sign over the sink. One of my favorite things to sing to my lovies…

    Just stopping by after seeing your kind comment at Thrifty Decor Chick on my Union Jack Trunk. Thank you for the comment, I am very new to blogging (just started last month) so all feedback is excitedly received.

    I love your kitchen holiday decor, it’s so welcoming!

    I am done decorating with my living room and now my next will be the kitchen. I was thinking of a little bit white with silver theme but when I saw your kitchen decorations, I will go for the green….
