My Christmas Kitchen

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 Crockpot 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!!

I was so excited when I saw these great looking cocktail napkins over at Sue’s on-line store, Zhush.com!! I ordered two sets.

The napkins are 5 in. square and they have black numbers on them!!! You know how I love a black number or letter.

They come 6 in a package for only $15. If you order before the 21st you can get free shipping with the shipping code, Freeshipz.

I know Christmas is not over yet, but we all know what is NEXT!!!

Happy New Year’s celebrations!
These napkins would be a great hit at any party.

I suggest you run don’t walk over to Sue’s and order these!!!
Good Luck!! I hope she still has some for you.
