I wanted to share more of our holiday decor. I added a little extra holiday cheer to our kitchen, but kept it pretty simple since we use the kitchen regularly.
I started by adding the silver peacock tree in the large window. I decorated the tree with collected peacock ornaments and coordinating blue ornaments. I also picked up a pale gray and silver sequined tree skirt from target. You can see all the details of the tree here.
Then using items I already had, I added a little extra silver, sparkly decor to fill the large window.
I took my glittered peacock feathers and stuck them along the sides of a glass vase and added a candle. I love how this turned out; I think I may leave this up year round.
You can see the tip of one of the glittered feathers that I used in the vase:
And here is a close up of the vase with the glittered, silver peacock feathers:
I then added a silver, glittered bird. I placed a silver ornament on top of a mercury glass vase to add varying heights and added a silver reindeer surrounded by flocked greenery.
I picked up this silver ice/champagne bucket with reindeer handles from Home goods and added a red poinsettia. I really didn't decorate with any red this year, but I love the pop of color that the red poinsettia adds.
I wanted to keep the island really simple because we use this as our everyday table, so I just added a clear glass cake stand and decorated it with candles and small and medium silver and gold ornaments.
I displayed a Christmas tray that one of my best friends gave me for my birthday one year and my Santa salt and pepper shakers my mom gave me for Christmas one year.
In the small nook between the pantry and refrigerator I put a Christmas carol book from the MET that I picked up one new years in NY and an apothecary jar filled with candy canes.
The final thing I added was a wreath on the back door between the kitchen and family room. The wreath is made of real tree clippings from Lowes, and it smells wonderful! If you're looking for a way to bring in some real greenery, I recommend Lowes wreaths; the selection was great and they were only $10.
I had intentions of jazzing up the wreath with ornaments and beading, but I really liked the natural simplicity of it mixed with all the glitter and glam of our other decor. The only thing I did was add our crystal "H" wedding cake topper for just a tiny bit of glitz!
