Christmas In Our Kitchen and Dining Room

Do you decorate for Christmas before or after Thanksgiving? I know this seems to be the hot question lately and obviously I have already decorated.

Either way, I say do what brings you joy! And today’s post is all about inspiration and bringing that joy. So whether you tuck these ideas aside for after Thanksgiving or you have already gotten started, my hope is that you leave here today with some fresh new ideas!

Celebrate Christmas Home Tours

Welcome to Our Home!

Before we get started I wanted to welcome you to our home! And give a small warning, I have broken this tour into two parts because I took a ton of pictures! So after Thanksgiving I will share the rest of our home and I hope you will join me.

Kelly of The Tattered Pew in her Kitchen

I am Kelly and I live in beautiful Colorado with my awesome family and two dogs. I thrive on hunting for unique and budget friendly finds on-line, at consignment shops , flea markets or even Home Goods! I’m new to full time blogging after leaving my 20 year teaching career and loving it. I survive on Jesus and coffee and the occasional bit of whiskey in a tea cup.

Oh, and I LOVE all things Christmas! You can see my last year’s Christmas tours here and here! I’m all about celebrating Jesus and his birth and I was born on December 22nd and brought home in a stocking, so it only seems fitting, right?

Ok, enough about me. Let’s start in the kitchen, shall we ?

Christmas in Our Kitchen

When we bought this house a little over a year ago it was love at first sight for me with this all blue kitchen! Our cabinets and walls and trim are all painted in the color Blustery Sky by Sherwin Williams. It’s a beautiful blue gray color and I love it!

But, with the kitchen being all blue it does sometimes get a bit dark at times.

So I recently changed out the previous lighting over our island for these gorgeous basket pendant lights from Wayfair and I could not be happier!

I love Wayfair’s lighting selection and had fun looking through all of their amazing quality options at an affordable price!

Changing out your lighting is an easy way to get that custom look in your home.

They add a whole new vibe to this space that it was previously missing. I love the warmth they add to the space and the light shines through the weave of the shade so beautifully and gives us that much needed extra light we were missing.

My mom helped me and we changed them out ourselves! You can visit this link HERE to watch the entire process over on my Instagram stories. I saved it to my highlights. We had a lot of fun!

Of course now I want to change out the stools because there is a lot of the same texture and color happening in this space. I have three options in mind.

Option 1: I can paint the current counter chairs white for some contrast. Option 2: I could change them out for these beauties from Wayfair. Or Option 3: try these white outdoor ones for a fun change.

Let me know what you think?

I still love these chairs though. They are actually outdoor patio bar chairs that we got from Wayfair years ago. I can no longer find them but I did find these similar ones if you like the look!

Back to Christmas, I kept things rather simple for Christmas decor in our kitchen. I added three wreaths to our back sliders and tied red ribbon on them.

I also added my favorite faux garland and red berries over the hood and around our wall mounted craft paper roll. The garland is sold out most places but I did find some over on Etsy recently!

Oh, and how cute is this tree tucked into this plaid metal bucket? So simple yet so pretty for Christmas in the kitchen!

The picture below is a peek into our ding room from our kitchen. Let’s head there next!

Next up let’s pop in to our dining room. This room is right behind the wall in our kitchen that holds our oven. The door you see above is the perfect pass through and you can also get here through our family room .

I had a lot of fun setting this table for Christmas! Just like last year’s Christmas dining table, I used a bright and colorful tablecloth. It makes everything pop and adds such a fun pattern!

Candles, pomegranates, greenery and a few gold and plaid accents made this Christmas table come alive!

After laying the garland down I spread out the real pomegranates, then the candles and finally a few mini brass horns.

The gold rimmed couple glasses and place settings were next.

Behind our dining table is one of my favorite consignment shop hutches and it is filled with a Christmas countdown! I shared the full tutorial over on the Miss Mustard Seed blog if you want a better peek!

The traditional reds and greens have my heart this year and this table is no exception! There was a lot of layering.

And of course I could never forget the chandelier. It needed greenery and ornaments too!

These plaid chargers are actually my mom’s. She is always so sweet to lend me items…we share a lot. It was also her idea to make the napkins on the plates look like bows. How cute did that turn out?

And of course I had to use my favorite faux bamboo flatware. I love how it works for every season!

Across from the table I hung this real look greenery wreath over my DIY art work and kept things simple with my wicker demi john collection beneath it.

And now, for a peek at our tree and mantel before I share them next week. I just love that you can see our tree from the dining room table!

It all looks so festive and makes me smile every time I walk in the room.

  10. Please tell me where to search for the plaid bucket. Measurements of the bucket? Size tree you used in the bucket? Have to copy you!

    Also, where can I find the pomegranate print? Like that you used them on your table.

    What size wreaths on on the doors?

    For your kitchen stools, put your white dining chairs at the bar and live with them before going white.
    Keep the stool you have. To lihhten, don’t loose your BLUE. Lots of lighting available today. Add more pots, spot in areas where light is lacking. Think additional lighting not white.
