The place we gather. The place we laugh. The place we drink. The place we feast. The place we pray.
The kitchen is truly the heart of the home so why not make it the heart of Christmas?
We decorate our entire home for the holidays, but in particular I find one spot to make the center focus and this year I chose the kitchen. I envisioned having mamas over for wine, baking cookies, creating elaborate gingerbread houses and it all happens in the kitchen! This year it was a no brainer this was my “special spot.”
My husband is a fan of traditional Christmas Decor and I love the pinks and non traditional color pops so we met in the middle for a modernized farmhouse style buffet.
Each year I search for custom pieces to add to our little decor collection as a family. The search is constantly on for custom pieces. This year I found the company Withermenots and fell instantly in love with her boho style pieces that you can dress up year round and use for multiple things. Then I learned she’s a fellow Mompreneur and had to share her story with ya all.
“I’m a stay at home mama of two boys and after having made a lot of diy florals weddings and showers (I have 2 sisters & 4 nieces and nephews ️), I started making floral letters to sell. I love all things home decor and floral so this is my combo of both! ️ I quickly saw how much I loved it and expanded a little to wreaths and wall hangings. I put a lot of love and time into each piece and truly enjoy doing it so so much! Surprisingly, the best part of this for me has been the love and support of my customers! Every happy message and positive review from them has brought so much joy to my heart!️ I know that this is only the beginning so I am looking forward to how this little business will bloom”
YAY FOR SUPPORTING OTHER MAKERS AM I RIGHT?!
When decorating I find pieces to use seasonally and then pieces that are going to be permanent fixtures year round. With every new Season I love to create a main space that is warm, cozy and inviting.
Now its time to spill the secrets – The buffet I styled with almost everything we already had and just added a few things here and there to spice it up.
- Buffalo Plaid Table Runner – Wayfair
- Candle Holders – Antique Shop
- Lamp – Goodwill
- Sign – Hobby Lobby
- Garland – Walmart
- Rings – Withermenots
We have this fun little tradition we do every year as a family where we buy one ornament and one village piece for something fun that has happened the previous year. For example in 2014 we got married so we bought a chapel village and an ornament with the exact replica of our cake. In 2015 my husband took a job with the San Francisco Fire Department so we bought a fire house village. Every year when I get our decorations out these memories just make me smile. It makes you truly focus on the good throughout the years. Let’s swap some traditions and maybe adopt some new ones!
