Christmas Home Tour Part 3
Welcome to the last of my Christmas home tour for 2017, if you have not checked out my other two tours go here and here to see what you might have missed. Let’s not forget about my first ever video that I did about my Christmas tree and village.
In the first tour, I showed you all the front of our home, the foyer, and half bath. The second tour I talked about our Christmas tree, snow village and showed you some other decorating idea’s I did in our living room.
This week I’ll show you the simpleness I have going on in my dining room and kitchen. Come on in and have a look around.
We have this sidebar in our dining room that is the perfect size for my little Santa and tree collections. Like most of my Christmas decor, I have found a lot of my Santa’s and trees at Goodwill or at my favorite stores at the end of the season on clearance.
On the other side of the dining room, I have my corner cabinet. A little backstory on this cabinet, it was my grandmother’s. When I was little I can remember standing in front of this cabinet and also my great grandmother’s china cabinet, admiring the dishes and china that were in both. Sometime after my husband and I were married my Grandma called me to ask me if I wanted the corner cabinet. What makes the corner cabinet even more special is on the bottom shelf is my great grandmother’s china, I cherish them both.
I didn’t want to take away from the cabinet itself. So I added a couple Christmas bowls that I found at T.J. Max and topped the cabinet with another Goodwill find. I’m not thrilled with the blue lights in the tree, I would have preferred white.
I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do for a centerpiece on the table this year. Then I remember I had this milk carrier and jars. One jar has Chocolate cocoa, another has white Cocoa, and the third has mini marshmallows, my girls love that this is ready and available whenever they want.
A little green to make it more festive and some cute salt and pepper shakers tucked in here and there. My placemats we picked up at Kohls and the table runner I found at Target in the dollar bins.
Moving on to the kitchen, I decorated above my cupboards with cookie jars, teapots, garland, and lights. This is the cupboard on the left side of my kitchen sink. Both the snowman and Santa are cookie jars but the tree is a teapot.
This is the cupboard to the right of the kitchen sink. I wanted both of these cupboards to mimic each other. The snowman is a cookie jar, the tree is a music box and Santa is a teapot.
To give the cookie jars high so they can be fully seen, I placed pieces of wood under them that was left over from our deck project.
This is part of the cupboards that are over my stove. Last January my grandmother passed away. When we started to clean out her house, I was blessed with finding this cookie house to add to my collection.
This is the cupboards on the other side of my stove. Since my cupboards are castigating and we don’t have all that high of ceilings, I only have four that are low enough that I can decorate.
I didn’t have a cookie jar that would fit in this place until I found this car one. It reminds me of the car in my snow village that I talked about in my video.
Last of the tour
This Believe plate was a gifted to our kids when they were younger by family. I thought it tied in well with the other items in the kitchen and dining room that say Believe.
My favorite place in the kitchen, my baking center. I would have liked to put this cookie jar house up on the cupboards but it was too tall and wouldn’t fit. I found that I do like it here on the counter, last year we put our K-cups in it. This year my husband and I have a stash of candy in this cookie jar, shh don’t tell the kids.
Since this shelf is also a towel rack it was the perfect place for this believe towel and the last of my Santa collection.
Thank you for stopping by and letting me show off my Christmas home. My mind has been racing with many ideas’s for next year, I can hardly wait.
Many Blessing ~ Jenny
