Christmas In My Farmhouse Kitchen

| | | |

I am very excited to share with you all my decor ideas for Christmas in my new farmhouse kitchen!

This time last year, we were in the throes of a total kitchen remodel and my kitchen was nowhere ready to be decorated for Christmas.  Shoot, I was proud of myself for even managing to get a Christmas tree decorated and the presents wrapped!  But I’ve made up for it this year.  There is barely a corner of my farmhouse kitchen that didn’t get a little Christmas love.

Farmhouse Kitchen Decor

My decorated kitchen is a long room, with the functional part of the kitchen at one end…

Farmhouse Christmas Kitchen with a wreath hanging above the stove, and mini wreaths on the cabinets.

…and the breakfast area at the other.  We have two turrets on the back of our house, which I love, and the breakfast area sits in one of them.  The window gives us wonderful panoramic views of our backyard where we frequently are treated with deer trotting by.  I’ve never shown my breakfast area in its entirety before as there was always some renovation project or other that wasn’t finished.  But everything has been completed in that area now, including window treatments, new diy rustic shelves above the sideboard and a new modern light fixture.

The dining room all decorated for Christmas with a Merry Christmas banner.

We’ll look at more of the breakfast area in a minute.  First let me show you around the functional end of the kitchen.  I”m enjoying the first Christmas in our remodeled kitchen so much that I couldn’t help but take a lot of pictures.  So grab a cup of cocoa and sit back and relax because this is a photo heavy post!

Farmhouse Kitchen Ideas

A Christmas garland added to the vent hood above my cooktop was my jumping off point.  Tiny battery operated lights add just a bit of holiday sparkle.

There is a garland on the range hood of the stove.

I added pretty wreaths with ribbon to the white kitchen cabinets.

Little wreaths are hanging on the white kitchen cabinets.

I mixed in Christmas touches with the everyday items that live on my kitchen counters all of the time.  Touches of pretty black and white ribbon were worked in all over the place.  In fact, I bought every single roll of black and white checked ribbon that two different Michael’s had! Love that stuff.  Small pops of red were added here and there to bring it all to life.

A cloche with a red church figurine underneath it.

I love the mix of rustic and elegant in this wooden box that holds a bit of my gold rimmed Christmas china, along with some sentimental cookbooks and a rustic star.

A wooden carrying box filled with kitchen plates, ribbon and mini Christmas trees.

The island sports a squatty snowman on a red sleigh and a couple of snow laden trees.

A snowman figurine is on a sleigh with mini trees.

The other side of the kitchen, opposite the sink, is where the ovens, microwave and pantry are located.

The kitchen island has the snowman figuring on a sleigh.

You might have noticed that that’s where the most important thing in the kitchen is located too.  The coffeepot.  For our upcoming Christmas family gathering, I set the entire area up as a hot drink bar.  The long container in the center has a space for cocoa pods as well as regular and decaf coffee.

The Keurig coffee maker is in the corner with a mini tree with Elf treats, and holiday cups beside it.

There are jars filled with mints, chocolates, and marshmallows for hot chocolate.

Now onto the breakfast area.  You may have seen that I shared my brand spanking new diy rustic shelves a few days ago.  Nothing really changed on them, except that I added a glittery Merry Christmas banner and a few red touches to tie in with the rest of the kitchen. I’m still trying to decide if the holiday banner is overkill, but the more that I live with it, the more I like it.  What do you think – too much?  I won’t spend a lot of time on the shelves today since this post is already so long, so click HERE to take a closer look at them.

Rustic shelves in the dining room are decorated for Christmas.

There is a mini house decorated for Christmas porcelain figure on the shelf.

I mentioned earlier that I had made several changes in this area of the farmhouse kitchen.  It sure has come a long way since we first moved in a little over a year ago.  I’ll be doing a separate post later to go over the details.  In the meantime, I’m loving the view from my spot on the couch.

Rustic shelves are above the wooden console table in the dining room.

I still have the same bench and framed printable on the other side of the breakfast room. By the way, I made this large size printable and also a 9″ x 11″.  It’s free, so click HERE if you’d like to download and print a copy.  I called this printable Each Day.

There is a picture on the wall above the sitting bench decorated with a mini wreath.

Presents, ribbon and a Noel bird pillow are on the bench.

And lastly (bless you if you’ve stuck with me until the end!), I created a simple holiday centerpiece for the table.

A centerpiece for the table with a mini tree, ribbons, candles and bells.

There is a silver chipmunk in the centerpiece.

A lantern with a candle in it is displayed in the centerpiece.

Thank you for letting me show you around my Christmas kitchen today.  I’m sending my warmest Christmas wishes to you, your friends and your family as we all celebrate the joyous occasion of our Saviour’s birth.

Pin it for later!

    1. Thank you so much, Shellie! And thank you for the feature! I’m honored and will be on the lookout for it.

  19. suzy your kitchen is amazing!!!! it looks beautiful decorated for the holidays- so warm and inviting! also not sure if it is just me but your header doesn’t scroll with the page and ends up taking up half of my screen so it’s harder for me to see your gorgeous home. i wanted to let you know.

    1. Thank you, Cassie! And thank you for letting me know about the header. Still trying to get the kinks worked out of the new blog design. I saw your next comment though, that says it was working properly. Merry Christmas!

  20. I love every nook and cranny of your magnificent home! I enjoyed looking at each of the different rooms! Just fabulous! Thank you for joining the 12 days of Christmas Blogger Tour Link Party! Merry Christmas!

  21. I just found your blog, and it is amazing. I am about to start a kitchen remodel, and your layout just might “fit.” Would you please share the width of the kitchen? I would love to see if I can pull off this arrangement with just a door replacement. Thanks, Nancy

    1. Hi Nancy. Our kitchen is 13′ wide from wall to wall. Each one of the counters is 25″ deep and the island is 36″ wide. The island is slightly off-centered to give a few inches more space between the island the the wall that the wall ovens are located on. Let me know if you need any more info and I’ll be glad to provide it. Good luck with your remodel!

  22. What a beautiful kitchen! You are very talented.

    1. Hi June. I found my K cup holder at my local Michael’s. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to sell them online, but I did see a couple in my store a few weeks ago. 🙁

      1. June Crawley says:

        Suzy, thank you so much for your reply. Alas, I tried 3 different Michael’s stores and not one. Maybe one day I will get lucky. I will just keep trying. It was so sweet of you to share that information. I am still in love with your kitchen.

  24. Michele Fleming says:

    I’M a new follower to your blog and am hooked! Your house is beautiful and an inspiration to me. I just started decorating my home and am by no means a decorator but with your ideas I’m sure I can fake my way through my house. I’ve searched your blog to see where your kitchen pendant lights came from??

    1. Hi Michele. My kitchen lights came from Home Depot.

  25. Rita W Capps says:

    Love, love everything ~ Where did you find the small trees on your counter with the snowman?


    1. Gosh, Rita – I’ve had them so many years that I don’t remember where they came from! I’ve seen similar ones this year, though not quite as tall, at Hobby Lobby, Michael’s and Target (I think). If you want the snow effect, you could always add some spray snow that comes in a can or even spray paint them with a little white paint.

  26. Suzy, your kitchen looks amazing! I love the black and white Christmas accents and your coffee/cocoa bar. AND your table centerpiece! I love lanterns and anything rustic…this will be an arrangement on my table this year! Thank you for sharing your beautiful kitchen!

  27. Love everything! Stunning and fabulous! And so inspiring!

  28. Your kitchen is beautiful and so ready for the holidays. I love all the greenery and wreaths. You inspire me.

  29. Love the black and white touches. Such a classy kitchen and breakfast area! Yummy.

  30. I love your kitchen…just stunning! I will be stealing the idea of tiny wreaths with a single ornament hanging on the cabinet doors…adorable!

  31. Beautiful! I could see myself having morning coffee at the table. Its bright and cozy. What shade are your walls in the breakfast nook. I love your choices on everything! Very nice!

    1. Hi Cathy. The walls are painted with Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige. Have a great day!

  32. Beautiful! left a comment above. Having a bit of trouble with computer on your site e-mail missing a letter on first comment

  33. Mary Chris says:

    I love everything that you have done. It makes me want to visit. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. I enjoy your blog.

  34. Your kitchen is lovely and very inviting. Now you must have a nice brunch for friends.
    My kitchen /dining has the same layout as yours and it is my favorite room in my house.
    Merry Christmas and may the Lord bless you and yours this Christmas and throughout the New Year.

  35. Wanda Flowers says:

    Mrs. Suzy your Farm home kitchen is beautiful and i did love what you have done so far!please keep your wonderful and beautiful ideals a coming, and i can not wait to see more of your gorgeous home, and your kitchen is so beautiful!

  36. Your kitchen is like “a dream come true”. I love the Christmas decorations in the kitchen. I am stumped as to what to do with the kitchen other than the countertops. Yes, the “Merry Christmas” garland looks perfect. I also adore your “Joy” sign. You have so many talents.

  37. Carol Elkins says:

    Your kitchen & breakfast nook are beautiful!!! I love the little wreaths on your cabinets and the black & white ribbon!

  38. Lovely!
    What is the granite called on your counters—similar to mine on my island.
    Also, where did you get the oiled bronze brackets your shelves are on? I am looking for something similar but w/out success. I too have a b & w kitchen! Love them.

    1. Hi Sandi. My granite is called White Pearl and came from Lowes. I’ve seen the exact same granite from other places called something different. I assume that the shelves you’re asking about are the ones in my breakfast area??? If so, I made the brackets with plumbing parts that I sprayed painted black. You can read all about it here:

  39. Brenda Radliff says:

    What a beautiful kitchen you have! love what you have done & all of your Christmas decorating & special touches. Love the drink/hot cocoa bar!!

  40. Absolutely stunning!!!

  41. Great job! I love all your Christmas touches.

  42. Wow, it all looks so beautiful. I just adore all the things you do.

  43. Beautiful kitchen, love the coffee bar and the box that holds the K-cups. Where did you find that?

    1. Hi Lorrie. I found mine at Michael’s, but they don’t sell them online. Here’s a link to one looks almost identical though:

  44. Nita Hiltner says:

    I love the size of this kitchen, it is compact to make the work easy and quick. Love the eating area with all those windows. I could sit here all day, gazing out the window.

  45. K J Meade says:

    I love your breakfast area! What is the color and brand of paint you have on the walls?

    1. Thank you! The walls are painted with Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige.

  46. Sandy Guy says:

    Love everything!!
    Where did you get your dining table??

    Thank you

    1. Thank you, Sandy! The table came from World Market. I had to order it as they didn’t have one in my store, but delivery to the store was free. Here’s a link to it:
