Here's a Christmas decorating tip that will put your kitchen into the holiday spirit!
You probably decorate the rest of your house for the holidays, but when it comes to the kitchen most people don't spend a lot of time to spruce it up. But you can make your kitchen just as festive as the living room with a little bit of effort and minimal cost.
One thing that really adds a lot is to decorate above the kitchen cabinets. Unfortunately, not everyone can take advantage of this Christmas decorating tip, but for those that can, you can really make the room festive by adding holiday decorations to the cabinet tops.
You can keep it simple by adding some garland with maybe just red berries, bows or colorful ornaments or go all out by replacing what you currently have up there with Santa's, trees and other holiday decorations.
If you get really ambitious, you can add some white lights just on the edge which will give the area a great holiday glow!
Decorating your kitchen table is a Christmas decorating tip that most folks already make use of by putting a holiday centerpiece, but why stop there? If your table is big enough, you can put a small tree on it! Maybe one of those quaint Victorian bottle brush trees would look neat? Just something about 2 or 3 feet tall and not so wide that it takes up the whole table.
Of course, you'll want to complete the look by leaving your table set with a Christmas theme dishes, placemats, glasses and silverware. Just leave it setup all during the holidays and it will add a great festive look to your table. If you are on a budget, shop at your local consignment store, thrift store, or flea market for holiday themed tableware.
Our final Christmas decorating tip really rounds out the look and pulls the room together - holiday accents! Buy pot holders, kitchen towels and throw rugs with a holiday theme and splash them around the room to complete the look. If you are really ambitious, you can get cookie jars, canisters and other counter top items in the Christmas theme. Again, try yards sales, consignment stores and even antique stores for inexpensive items to use in your decorating.
