Christmas in my Kitchen

Blogland has been buzzing with all the wonderful parties going on. I've been trying to keep up with it all, joining in and also visiting everyone, but let me tell you, it's been hard! My son has been sick all week long, so that hasn't helped matters either, I guess.

I'm sharing Christmas in my kitchen today. I don't decorate a whole lot in the kitchen because my kitchen is kinda small and also because there's a whole lot of cooking & baking that goes on in here.

I added a small tree, my baker's tree, if you will.

There are cute ornaments on this tree, like this pastry stand of goodies.

My nephew bought me these glass snowmen bakers (set of 3) from Williams Sonoma last Christmas.

 What baker's tree would be complete without a red stand mixer?

I added a few Christmas pieces to my glass door cabinets, a gingerbread house & a couple of snowmen.  The red & white polka dotted trim that I added this summer, see here,  is still going strong!

This little gingerbread girl sits on the countertop.

On my kitchen table, I have this Santa Claus centerpiece that I've had for ages.  (I think it's starting to look that way too!)

I hope you have enjoyed Christmas in my kitchen.  Watch out though...flour will be flying around here real soon!

  24. How cute! Love your little Baker's tree. My kitchen is small too, but since it is open to the living room I always like to add a little Christmas cheer here and there. Your kitchen looks great.

    Mucho love,

  25. Your kitchen is adorable!! Love the trim added to the front of the shelves. Great finishing touch. Wish you had linked this to Wow.

  26. Oh my gosh I was looking at your kitchen and I just bought some of the red polka dot trim at a nearby educational store but haven't put it up yet. I hope it looks as cute as yours does.
