Christmas Kitchen

Our main living area is an open plan that includes the den, breakfast room, and kitchen.  Today, I am sharing some of the Christmas decorations in this area.

This is the shelf where I usually display my fish platters and plates.

All the Christmas plates were purchased at a wonderful boutique here in town.  Half price the day after Christmas!! 

I have one more square plate and 8 more round plates in various designs. 

This is the shelf over the stove.  The rabbits in their little velvet Christmas attire were gifts to  Alexandra and Caroline years ago.  I have the photo of the girls all dressed up, holding them that Christmas!  I always display that photo somewhere every year.

I love these colorful pine cone lights.   I hung the canvas snowmen that Caro and I made here.

The main Christmas tree is located in this room, also.

  14. Good Morning Sweetie...
    Rhonda everything looks so absolutely fabulous. I love the way you displayed the little Christmas plates. You have given me an idea for my China cabinet. I am going to make it a little seasonal I believe. I love this idea.

    Your garland is just beautiful. I love it that you still have the rabbits. I have some bears that are really old that were given to my kids.

    Everything looks so beautiful sweetie. So beautiful. Thanks for sharing this morning.

    Please stop by and say hi. I so love it when you do.

  16. I love your beautiful Christmas decorations. I loved the tree, and I am so inspired by your beautiful table with the shelf above it. I have a very pretty table by my door that needs something above and I was thinking of a mirror but I really love your shelf. I may just have to have the hubs make me one... hmmmmm. LOVED it all, your home is truly beautiful.
