Today I am sharing my White Kitchen Christmas Tour instead of a Thrift Shop Thursday. I am running behind on my tours and wanted to get them in before Santa arrives. A quick shout out to my Dad…Get better soon Dad, we love you tons and miss you and mom!
Now on with the Kitchen Tour…
If I haven’t mentioned it before I will do so now, I love decorating for Christmas. I enjoy looking at all the old ornaments and decorations with all the special memories they hold and the stories they tell. I especially love the decorations that my boys made in preschool and Elementary School. I use these to decorate my kitchen tree. They are so sweet. I can’t believe I am going to say this but I miss those days!
Since I love tradition, I use the same decorations year after year and add a little something new as well.
Check out the Angel on the top of the tree. My middle son made that in preschool. He had the most artistic teacher. It still amazes me that he is a freshman in college! In the background, you can see my DIY Christmas Countdown sign. Since my husband wakes before the rest of the household, he is the one that changes the days. It is such a simple thing but it is something we all enjoy. Even though it is making me a little antsy to realize Christmas is only 8 days away.
My kitchen Santa stands next to the glass Christmas Tree candy jar that belonged to my dad’s mom. To me it’s all about the memories and I hope this is something my boys will carry with them when they start their own family one day.
My mom bought me this feather tree a long time ago. It’s one of those things that hold special memories for me. I added the vintage reindeer that I found at a consignment shop. Just another thing that reminds me of Christmas from my childhood.
I start decorating with this vintage truck last year. This was my husband’s childhood toy and I am sure it holds special memories for him.
This is a view into our family room (and a reminder that I still have not switched out my chandelier).
(The picture above is from last year but I had to share because I love this image of our Elf, Harry Frost)
Our Elf has reappeared everywhere but under the vent hood this year but there is still time! Well, that is our little tour of the kitchen, tomorrow I will share my home office and the dining room.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the Christmas Kitchen Tour.
Until Next Time,
We Party Here:
