My 2010 Christmas Kitchen




I received an early Christmas gift from Mr. Flu bug so I will be giving you all a glimpse of last years inspiration around my house. I will be back as soon as I feel a bit better.............

Christmas Kitchen in black and white:

You all have seen my kitchen dinette with its black and white color scheme.

 I also carried it into the kitchen  with just one little touch of red. I used red in the adjacent family room so it was a perfect little tie-in!!

Here is a picture of my dining room just for a reminder of the direction I am taking this year.

Now you can see just a small touch of the red that I will be introducing into the family room.

A few more tiny red touches. I have my silver Revere bowl full of scented pinecones and pomanders made out of limes. This bowl smells delicious!!

I put my crystal bottle stoppers in some of my glassware. I loved the repetition of the black stripes!!! Plus they look so sparkly and I do love sparkle at Christmas time.

I purchased two of these balls at Pier I. I thought they might work on the table, but they just said too much for that setting. I think they are perfect inside my cupboard.

How about some Jingle bells for your cupboards. I used napkin rings around my knobs for a festive little touch.

One last picture of my mini cypress trees with just a very small dash of sparkly glitter………

The kitchen is a warm place to be at Christmas time. Mulling spices in the Crock pot and the red lacquered tray ready for tea or coffee.

Candles are lit on the window sills. I have my crystal chandelier dimmed so it looks like candlelight. I just enjoy being in there so much.

Even washing dishes is fun this time of year!!! Boy I wish that feeling would last all year long!!

Merry,Merry Christmas from My Kitchen to YOURS!!
