2011 Christmas in the Cottage Kitchen

Good Afternoon everyone ~ I am a bit behind in sharing my Festive Cottage Décor with all of you ~ so I am going to quickly share what I can within the next couple days!  In this post I will share with you my festive kitchen area.  This is the place where we gather together with friends and family.

Over the past year, I have been collecting white pitchers to put on the hutch in the dining area.  I am adoring how they look mixed in with the holiday decorations.  Excited to share with you my newest paper houses ~ next year I hope to add snow and some bottle brush trees to their area.007002

 

The simple centerpiece on our family table is this sweet nest filled with shredded paper and glittered white birdies.

Here are the Anthropologie inspired shaker jars that I recently created and shared with you.  These two are the ones I decided to keep for myself and the others were given as teacher’s gifts.

 

Sitting on the butcher block island of the kitchen is the bottle display that now holds Christmas mugs for the family to fill with Hot Chocolate and apple cider… also a wired Christmas Tree is tied with The Porcelain Rose gift tags “12 Days of Christmas”.
