Holiday Décor Ideas for any Kitchen 
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Homes all across America are being decked out in garland, twinkle lights, and Christmas trees of all shapes and sizes. Christmas décor isn't just limited to one part of the home. Families are decorating their entire homes, inside and out, in celebration of the holiday season. We've gathered up 10 of the best Christmas kitchen décor ideas that we've seen for the 2022 holiday season and put them together in one place for you to enjoy!

1. Simple Glam Christmas Kitchen Décor 
Sometimes simple yet festive is the way to go! This gorgeous white kitchen above with natural wood tones and Christmas décor fits in perfectly! We love the use of statement items on the island like the large glass vase, tall wooden Christmas trees, and a large candle which gives the room an elegant focal point.

2. Traditional and Festive Christmas Kitchen Décor 
With so many unique holiday trends filling Pinterest and Instagram these days, it's nice to see some traditional red and green holiday décor in the mix. This kitchen below has the cutest décor on the more traditional side like the red and white stripe ribbon. A festive touch that this kitchen incorporates are the wreaths on each upper cabinet. We love seeing creative touches like this that add pops of character.
3. Cozy Farmhouse Hot Cocoa Bar
What says farmhouse Christmas décor more than a dreamy hot chocolate bar? If you have a little coffee nook in your kitchen, we highly recommend transforming it into a hot cocoa bar for the holidays like the kitchen above! We love the classic white shiplap combined with the warm wooden open shelves. They also made a spectacular 3-tiered tray decked out in all things farmhouse Christmas!
4. Cozy Kitchen Sink Décor
Your Christmas decorations don't have to stop at the garland over the fireplace. Making all the little corners in your home festive elevates the space as a whole. We love what this homeowner did with their kitchen sink tray below! Their tray provides a place for their matching soap dispensers to live and provides a little extra space to add some décor like a delicious scented Christmas candle.
5. Elegant Christmas Kitchen Décor
If we closed our eyes an envisioned the most perfect glam Christmas kitchen, this kitchen above would be it! Everything from the stunning gold kitchen hardware to the simple yet elegant garland around the window and even the soft twinkle lights make this a kitchen to remember. Another great feature is the small wreaths hanging over each glass cabinet door. The ribbon adds a delicate touch that softens the décor while keeping things cozy.
6. Wreaths to Spruce Up Blank Spaces
The range hood in your kitchen can be a big blank space. During spring and summer when the décor is on the simple side, it's not really an issue. However, Christmas is a season where people are eager to decorate every corner of their home, the range hood included. This homeowner below added a gorgeous wreath complete with a red ribbon to her range hood and it really ties the entire kitchen décor together!
7. Christmas Village in the Kitchen
We are huge fans of Christmas villages. When we saw how this homeowner above incorporated a Christmas village in their kitchen décor for the holiday season, we fell in love! It's an elegant village with neutral colors and soft lighting. The lighting really glows at night and creates a magical space within this kitchen.
8. Warm Garland in a Neutral White Kitchen
Clean white kitchens like the one below are very popular right now and for good reason. They can easily be dressed up or down for any holiday or occasion. If you're looking for a more neutral Christmas décor look then garland is the perfect go-to holiday décor item. By simply placing a few pieces of garland and other greenery like wreaths around the kitchen, the space is easily transformed into holiday mode!
9. DIY Snow Globe Canisters
These DIY snow globes above made with glass kitchen canisters are such a cute idea! They also make great centerpieces for the kitchen island and are also a great way to decorate the kitchen counter for the holidays.

10. Candy Cane Lane Décor
Sometimes a simple color change is all a space needs to show off your holiday spirit. By adding in a few red accents in this white kitchen below along with some actual candy canes you have an instant festive space without a lot of fuss.
Project Spotlight!
This ranch house in Columbia took it's remodel to the next level. At first glance you may not see much of a change but check out out more photos of this project on Facebook or Instagram and you will see just how much of a transformation this home took! The biggest problem area for this client was the refrigerator area. There was a very narrow counter/cabinet between the refrigerator and tall oven cabinet which was useless, and they could not open the fridge door all the way to pull the interior bins out. We redesigned the footprint of this space to give a TON more storage and hide that angled soffit. Another problem area were the base corners. No client wants to dig into a blind corner cabinet trying to find items that become lost for years. Now every corner has more useable and accessible storage. The entire project is jammed pack full of all the most popular accessories including blind corner pull-out, trash pull-out, base corner lazy susan, cutlery divider, towel pull-out, tray dividers, spice rack, and pantry roll-outs! We used the Wynnbrooke Drexel door in custom paint colors chosen by our client from Sherwin Williams. Handles are the It Series from Atlas Homewares. Check out more photos of this project including the adjacent laundry room and close ups of all the accessories on our Facebook Page.

This Month's Feature Recipe
Easy Cranberry Brie Bites
We recommend serving the assembled bites warm, but room temp also works! If you're looking for a make-ahead holiday appetizer, it doesn't get much easier than these bites. Simply prep them the night before and keep in the fridge until you're ready to bake the next day. 
Some great tips....
  • Keep the cheese super cold before slicing. Freezing isn't necessary, but a good chill will make slicing a breeze. Dipping a butter knife in hot water before slicing makes for cleaner slices as well. Leave the rind on! For cheeses with an edible rind like brie, leaving the rind on will help keep the cheese from spreading too much while baking.
  • When cutting the crescent roll squares, try to get them as even as possible so that they fit evenly into the mini muffin pan. Centering the dough in each muffin tin will ensure that the dough comes evenly up the sides, creating an even nest for the cheese.
  • Each brie bite needs about 1 teaspoon cranberry sauce or chunky preserve of your choice.

  • 1 (8-oz.) tube crescent dough
  • Cooking spray, for pan
  • Flour, for surface
  • 1 (8-oz.) wheel of brie
  • 1/2 c. whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 c. chopped pecans
  • 6 sprigs of rosemary, cut into 1" pieces

  1. Preheat oven to 375° and grease a mini muffin tin with cooking spray. On a lightly floured surface, roll out crescent dough, and pinch together seams. Cut into 24 squares. Place squares into muffin tin slots.
  2. Cut brie into small pieces and place inside the crescent dough. Top with a spoonful of cranberry sauce, some chopped pecans, and one little sprig of rosemary.
  3. Bake until the crescent pastry is golden, about 15 minutes. 

Crescent roll dough and brie aside, the best part about this recipe is its balance and versatility. Create your own combos of creamy, sweet, salty, and herby! Here are a few genius pairings to get your creative juices flowing:

*Crumbled goat cheese + apricot preserves + toasted almonds + thyme 
*Camembert + cherry preserves + crumbled bacon + black pepper 
*Brie + hot pepper jelly + candied pecans + thyme
*Gorgonzola + fig chutney + mint + toasted walnuts
