Christmas Kitchen Decorating Ideas
Hear me out – I am IN LOVE with our new kitchen. I truly am.
However, now that we have opened up this giant wall and have one big space – there is a huge looming question that remains.
Where in god’s name are we going to put a Christmas tree?
In Christmases past, our tree always goes to the right of our fireplace tucked in this cute little corner.
Except now, there is no corner.
Yeah. That corner where that sweet little baby seat is. No longer a corner.
So now I have my sights set on how to decorate our kitchen for Christmas this year while simultaneously stressing about where we are actually going to put our Christmas tree this year.
Because of that, I’ve been eyeing a lot of inspiration and I’m here to share all of that with you gorgeous people.

Bake Your Decor
I love this good reminder that sometimes you can bake the season for treats for the eyes and the taste buds!
Decorated Wet Bar
We created a coffee bar with a super cool arched feature wall in our kitchen and I think having it all dolled up for Christmas would be amazing!
I gotta say, I think our kids would LOVE this but having ornaments hanging from the ceiling is a great non-cluttered Christmas kitchen decorating idea because you aren’t adding things to a surface like a countertop, but instead allowing the eyes to be drawn up to the decor! Love it.
Simply Decorated Open Shelves
In the ghost of kitchens past, we had open shelves that we made and I loved them!
Our only open shelves in our current kitchen reside in our coffee bar area but if you have open shelves in your kitchen, this would be a very simple way to add Christmas kitchen decor.
Bowl of Ornaments
Simplicity. Corralling a bunch of ornaments in one single bowl for gorgeous, minimal Christmas kitchen decor.
Stockings on Bar Stools
I totally couldn’t do this in our current life state because of a very grabby baby girl, but I love adding the stockings on the back of bar stools. Genius idea if you don’t have a fireplace, either!
Simple, Minimal Wreaths
I love the non-traditional type of wreaths on the windows and the range hood. The setup in our own kitchen is very similar to this so I may draw some inspiration for our own kitchen decor from this!
Wreaths and Ribbon
Holiday Soaps and Christmas Themed Canisters
Sometimes just changing out what’s normally on your countertops for more festive red and white can be all you need as simple Christmas kitchen decor.
Another kitchen decorating idea for Christmas: If you already have white canisters, tie Christmas ribbon around them as a more budget friendly option and to save you from purchasing things you’ll have to end up storing later!
Trees on a Serving Board
Elegant Beaded Cone Trees
Wood and Natural Tones
Tree in the Kitchen
I absolutely love this idea. The natural tree with the DIY orange garland (which I have from making it last year!) and then the open pantry shelves with canisters of snow on the top shelf. It’s the perfect balance of what you’d expect from Christmas kitchen decor.
Seasonal Fruit or Food Items
Using things that you see a lot in Christmas decor like oranges, cinnamon sticks, or even cranberries in a simple colander is a great idea for simple Christmas decor!
These ideas have definitely gotten some wheels turning and I will be using bits and pieces of a lot of these as inspiration for our own Christmas kitchen that I’m looking to decorate super soon!
