Christmas in the Kitchen

Come on in, and let me show you around the kitchen. 
We'll start with the table and make our way around the kitchen.

Snowman plates are part of the Jolly Holiday Collection from Pier One and rest on a stack of everyday white plates, I dressed them up with square lime green chargers and a red placemats

as you can tell the color scheme is red, green, and white all the traditional Christmas colors

ornaments are even hanging from the light fixture...

Sorry for the poor pictures, we have been under cloudy skies for several days, and you may notice some pictures were taken in the evening as well….I was trying.

Pom-pom garland nestled among the holiday figures adds a touch of whimsy to the table.

The snowman figure is a salt shaker from the Fitz and Floyd collection; a gift I received from my son last Christmas.

The red spiral stemware adds a festive touch to the holiday tablescape

as do the red napkin rings.

I have been collecting Mark Roberts figures for a few years and the cooking elf was my first, he is very special since Mr. SB purchased him for me.

In this corner of the kitchen I have a beverage station along with a Fitz and Floyd cookie jar.

On the other corner I created a little fun space with a few more snowmen figures.
 Yes, I know I have not shown you my whole kitchen, but you see…. I have dark cabinets and in a blog world full of beautiful white and sage green cabinets…..
Well you know.

Okay, I will show you this one picture looking from the  dinning room into the kitchen and nook area, and as you can see this picture still has the reality brochures on displayand no green paint on the walls.
That's a lot of brown wood! 

But hey we love it for now and Ms. H loves it too!
Merry Christmas Y'all!

 Thank you for visiting,
