Red and White Cozy Cottage Christmas Kitchen 2019

I took a little blogging break, but with the holidays here I'm ready to start sharing again! Sometimes we just need to step back and refresh. To kick of our home decorated for the holidays, I thought I would start with the heart of the home, the KITCHEN!
I wanted to go with a more traditional red and white Christmas theme, with a playful side for the kids. Red just feels like Christmas, but I don't like too much red. 

By shopping my china hutch in the dining room, I gathered all my white pitchers, creamers and even a gravy boat for the open shelves. Sticking with my love for vintage, country style I tried to carry the French linen red stripe theme throughout the kitchen. That way it's a soft touch of red.

We recently pulled out our cabinet microwave and raised the upper cabinet over the stove to make it more open. I love having a large open space behind the stove now and it was the perfect spot to hang the Faux Gingerbread Wreath I made last year. With the two natural wreaths hanging in the windows I didn't want to too many green wreaths in the kitchen, so this is the perfect way to break up all the wreaths in the house.

Carrying the French linen red stripe on into the stockings by just tying a small knotted ribbon with a piece of greenery.
I felt like the hanging stockings on the chairs added that child like feel to them:)

Who doesn't worry about ants? I do! haha So using these plastic candy canes is a great solution if you worry about that problem like me. 

Just adding a little red and white ribbon to the cutting board and utensil holder adds the perfect little touch of Christmas. 
Bottle brush trees is another way to easily bring in the Christmas feel without taking up a lot of space in the kitchen. There are so many different colors and styles to fit with whatever style you're doing.
I used these cream bottle brush trees on the hot cocoa centerpiece. I love mixing white and cream. It's a easy way to make the all white feel less stark. I have a vintage cream doily under the white dishes on the open shelving to add texture and a cozier look.
Since we don't have a lot of counter top space, I thought it would be fun to make a hot cocoa station as a centerpiece! What kid doesn't love a cocoa station?

The marshmallow snowflakes were so easy to make! Just use small marshmallows and one large one for the center, held by tooth picks.

I keep seeing a bottle brush garland on Instagram and had to have one! Since I had a bag of small bottle brush trees left over, I made a garland with them by hot gluing the tops to a piece of lace ribbon.

The little ones love reading the candy cane lane & north pole signs hung on the wall!
They can add letters to Santa in the north pole post box too. 

I've added in some photos of the kids since I did they're Christmas pictures in our kitchen this year. They enjoyed those cups of hot cocoa first to get them in a better mood. 😉


I hope you've enjoyed our Christmas Kitchen for 2019!
