Yesterday I revealed a new red and white farmhouse Christmas tablescape…and today I want to share my red and white farmhouse Christmas kitchen and dining room.
Today I am so excited to be joining up with some of my favorite farmhouse bloggers for the Home for the Holidays Christmas home tour organized my Jenna of Wife In Progress. She is so wonderful to have organized this whole thing! Each day this week there are a new group of super talented bloggers so make sure to check out the bottom of my post for the full schedule, complete with links to each post. If you are coming from Little House of Four, welcome!
Every year I tell myself I want to go minimal. That I want my decor to be so simple, that thew big pieces make a big statement. I even told myself this year I was going to stay away from red and green…..you can see how well that went. Now, give me credit. I kept my cozy living room strictly in greens and blues and really love it! But, alas, I couldn’t help myself in my kitchen and dining room, especially when I decorated my mini gingerbread houses for my red and white farmhouse Christmas tablescape.
So, I went with it. I created a red and white farmhouse Christmas kitchen and dining room.
I recently updated my kitchen, after some serious paint issues, and opened up the space. So decorating my kitchen for Christmas was super fun this year. I kept the decor very simple, adding just a few specific pieces, focusing on the red and white. I added a vintage plate tin to one set of my open shelves, and a red and white platter to the opposite side.
Adding just a few accessories can completely change the look of the entire space. I added a flocked Christmas wreath to the top of my stove’s vent hood, and some pine garland around my window.
Something that I used a lot of in my Christmas decor this year was pomegranates. My mom gave me a huge bag of them and we have been eating them as fast as we can. But, they sure make pretty decor as well!
I found this incredible rug at our local TJ Maxx, and I was instantly obsessed! I have been trying to take a few risks and step outside my comfort zone with some of the rugs that I have picked for my home. I usually go for something super simple, and the bright colors of this rug were so incredible, I knew I needed it. And the touches of red in it go perfect with my Christmas decor. Happy accident? Could be:)
Now, how adorable are our elves on a shelf?
Yesterday my kids made them necklaces and bracelets out of rubber bands. They were so thrilled when they saw that they were wearing them this morning!
I pulled out my Christmas pancake griddle this morning and made some Christmas inspired pancakes. They each have their own design and print the design on the pancake.
Now its time to check out my dining room.
I featured my mini gingerbread houses in my red and white Christmas tablescape yesterday, since they were the inspiration for the whole table decor. I thought I would show you a bit more of the space.
The vintage plate tin in my kitchen held these sweet plates that I used in my dining room. I lvoe my Rae Dunn “naughty” container in the mix. Its a bit whimsical.
This right here. This gingerbread house is my absolute favorite. My kids decorated it! I think they did a pretty great job, and I knew I needed to feature it, especially since it went with my theme.
One of the coolest features in my dining room is my easy DIY craft paper roll holder.
I love using it as a source of decor in the space. It always adds a fun addition to my dining room, and I can customize it any way I like.
As you can see I kept the Christmas decor in my dining room pretty simple, only adding what really meant something and improved the space.
See something you love?
