Today, I am sharing the first room of our farmhouse decked out for Christmas, the kitchen. Our newly renovated kitchen and dining room have truly been a joy to decorate for the Christmas season & I CAN NOT wait to share each & every inch of it with you guys! If you are on the lookout for even more Christmas inspiration, I am sharing our Christmas kitchen & dining room with some of my favorite blogging friends.

Christmas Kitchen & Dining Room

It seems fitting that I should share our Christmas kitchen & dining room first after all the hustle & bustle in these two rooms last week. Jason & love to host & our farmhouse is the heart of all of our family gatherings.
We had 22 here for Thanksgiving dinner.
Now that the dishes are washed, the leftovers are almost all eaten & everyone is home safe from their long travels home I can turn my attention to the Christmas season!
I placed almost all my vintage Christmas decor in our kitchen.
They remind me of Christmases past when I was a little girl excited for Christmas…and I can’t help but smile when I see these vintage Santas.
Christmas cookie baking with my Nana, Christmas shopping & wrapping with my mom, fancy Christmas dinners at my aunt’s & of course matching Christmas dresses with my sisters. They hold such sweet memories in my heart.
It won’t be long till the kids & I start our Christmas baking in here.
Our new kitchen island will be the perfect spot for rolling out all that cookie dough.
Mmmm, I can almost smell those sugar cookies baking. I have been thinking about hanging a Christmas wreath to our DIY range hood since before it was built, ha!
It just amazes me that we were able to reuse our old kitchen cabinets to give us the farmhouse kitchen we were dreaming of!
Moving into the dining room…which we have just recently started renovating. We just recently added shiplap to the walls & I can’t get over how much brighter this room is now!
The white walls (which we still need to paint, Oy) really make the oak on our farmhouse table pop. Our farmhouse table is one of my favorite DIY projects to date! I still can’t believe the transformation of it.
I added a simple DIY advent candle holder with some fresh greenery to the top of the table. (DIY here)
The greenery goes well with my DIY Christmas Wreath on our dining room mantel.
And… we found another church pew (whoop, whoop) to add more seating to the dining room. I started to panic a few days before Thanksgiving when I realized the kids had broken a few chairs & we no longer had enough seating for everyone. A quick Craigslist search found this 8 foot long church pew for sale just 5 mins away. For $20 it was a steal & will go down as one of my best finds ever!
A quick sanding from Jason & it looks just as good as the church pew we added to our living room.
If you want to see the rest of our farmhouse decorated for Christmas, you can find that here…
Be sure to stop by Ashley’s from Bigger than the Three of Us who is next up on the Very Merry Christmas Home Tour as well as the other Christmas tours from the links below!
I hope this inspires your Christmas kitchen decorating. Merry Christmas!
