Welcome to the Storybook Cottage 2018 Christmas Kitchen. I am so happy to be participating in the Kitchen Decorating hop and is hosted by Tammy of Pink Peppermint Design.
If you are coming from Haneen’s Haven thank you so much for visiting. Her black and gold touches are SO glamorous!
A Little Cabinet Hutch
Recently Mr. Decor cut out a section of our old cabinet doors so that glass fronts could be created.
I couldn’t wait to decorate the interior.
Because this to me represents Christmas past.
I have my great-grandmother Lenora’s teapot and teacups belonging to her daughter, my Grandma Mary.
On my father’s, there is the Bavarian china that belonged to my Great Grandma Emma and was passed on to me by dear Grandma Jingles.
The kitchen is cottage sized but full of good things.
Hearth and Home
Would you like a cup of pink peppermint cocoa?
It’s yummy! So the recipe will be shared in an upcoming post.
I collect antique French copper and love to display it at Christmastime.
You can read how the pot rack was made for less than $10 HERE.
This year’s kitchen tablescape was inspired by wee gingerbread houses decorated by each member of our family.
Because they do look good enough to eat!
Red (also called pink) transferware that we collected while stationed in Germany is a family favorite.
A simple antique linen runner is topped with beaded garland and my mother Karen’s old Shiny Brite ornaments.
O Christmas Tree
The sparkle and shine help lead the eye to the wee tree in the bay window.
It was placed in an antique German wagon for height.
A tree skirt didn’t look quite right so I improvised with piling on beaded garland to cover the base.
We have been enjoying the Christmas magic the kitchen tree brings at dinnertime.
The directions for the Victorian-inspired table runner are HERE.
I hope you have enjoyed this year’s Christmas kitchen. The theme changes every year. You can view past Christmas kitchens under the Home Tours tab.
Next up on the tour is This is Our Bliss. You will love her kitchen!
