12 Jul Decorating Your Kitchen for Christmas
Filled with delicious scents and a constant supply of mince pies, boxes of chocolates and roasted nuts, your kitchen needs to look the part as well as smell delicious. Have a read of our festive ideas to get your kitchen suitably wrapped up for Christmas.
We’d usually favour minimal clutter on open kitchen shelves, but during Christmas time the usual decorating guidelines can get a little blurred! You could put the fairy lights on your shelves, or even a fake fir tree branch for something a little different. Spread some Christmas trinkets, fir cones or homemade crafts for extra festivity. Poinsettias look the part at Christmas and would make a lovely, festive addition to your open shelves.
Spend some time decorating your dinner table and you could turn it into a real focus point in your kitchen. National Trust have some lovely Christmas kitchen accessories, from Novelty Santa Jumper Napkins to Christmas Drinking Jars and Christmas Robin Tea Towels to decorate to your heart’s content. Choose a theme and stick with it to keep it looking classy. If you try and introduce too many ideas it might end up looking cluttered and a little tacky!
