Tour of My Christmas Kitchen

Please come in for a tour of my Christmas kitchen. Candy canes and gingerbread are the theme for Christmas decor in our vintage kitchen. Everything is original in our 1958 kitchen.

Gingerbread Christmas tree - kitchen Christmas tree

I think of all the rooms in the house, I love to decorate the kitchen the most. Maybe it is all the gingies or the bright colors I use in here. My Christmas cookie tree sits in my kitchen window cheering me on while I wash the dishes.


The coffee station needs its own Christmas spruce up. I swapped out my usual coffee sign for this fun vintage themed one.





Red towels dress up my old oven perfectly.


All ready for baking.





A vintage looking tablecloth was an after Christmas snag from last year.


Of course my new old shelf is my favorite corner right now.



I have had that little Christmas tree on the cutting board for about 15 years. It comes out of the box ready to brighten up a corner every year.


I hope you enjoyed a tour of my 1958 Christmas kitchen. Of course lots of goodies and family meals will come out of here over the next few weeks just like they have for decades past.

  15. Came here from Pinterest! Love your kitchen. You have given me some ideas and I have been playing in my kitchen and with my Christmas stuff. Also I have a couple of the graters like yours that you have on your wall. Mine are on the wall too and used to belong to my hubby's grandmother. Because of that I treasure those. Love that bookshelf with the drawer. I have a perfect spot for one of those is I ever find one! In the meantime I have a bookcase there that my father made years ago. I supposed I could dress it up and paint it.

  36. I absolutely love your 50's kitchen. So, so beautiful...love everything about it. I recall my late mother had a 'red' ceiling in her kitchen in the 50's. Sounds weird but it was gorgeous with her white cupboards. I have joined your followers list and would love to have you join me as well. Season's Greetings. Hugs, Gayle
