Ok, I’ll admit it. I’ve done a very small portion of my Christmas shopping so far even though I said things would be different this year. I promised myself I’d get on it, I’d be organized with lists and objectives and timelines. But none of that happened. Instead here we are at December 12th and I still have sooooooo much to do. But as soon as I finish writing this post I’m going to start online shopping, so that’s a start, right?! Oy. I’m such a procrastinator. It’s a problem, but at least I recognize it, right? Maybe that’s something I should focus on for the new year. No more procrastinating. Anyway, I hope your Christmas shopping is done and you’re worry free for the next two weeks until the big day. I also hope you’re enjoying a yummy snack or beverage right now because I have a fun little tour of our farmhouse Christmas kitchen and breakfast nook for you today. Per usual I went a teensy bit crazy with the photos, so get yourself comfy and let’s get on with it!
We’ve been drinking hot chocolate by the gallon lately. Seriously, my kiddos are little hot chocolate addicts. They want it morning, noon, and night. So instead of dealing with a zillion little packets of hot cocoa mix, I decided to buy the mega size container and just dump it in this jar. And of course we have to have mini marshmallows. I mean, it’s pretty much required for hot chocolate.
Old scales will always be one of my all-time favorite things to decorate with. They just add so much charm to any space. All it took was this yummy holiday candle, a few cinnamon sticks and a bit of greenery to spruce this baby up for Christmas. Easy and simple!
I snagged this wooden Merry Christmas sign from Michael’s this year for super cheap and I love it. What is it about old red trucks?! They’re just so darn cute and perfect for Christmas.
I added a little bit of Christmas cheer to our breakfast nook area with a few wreaths and a couple of wooden Christmas trees. Not much, but just enough to get this space nice and jolly!
I gotta say, it was lots of fun to decorate our new snazzy kitchen for Christmas. I’ve pretty much skipped it the past few years, or done very little, but I was excited to do it this year. You guys know this kitchen has come a loooooooong way over the past two years (you can see the big makeover post here). We definitely don’t have the biggest or the fanciest kitchen, but it’s perfect for us. And now it’s ready for Christmas!
Well let me know what you think and if you have any questions. I always LOVE chatting with you guys!
