Welcome to my Coastal Christmas Kitchen with Starfish!
Kitchens can be tricky to decorate, especially if you love to cook. My kitchen is extra busy around the holidays, so it’s important that my decorations don’t get in the way. I want to enjoy being surrounded by pretty lights and Christmas decorations without having to move them around every time I need to cook something.
Here’s a view of my Coastal Christmas Kitchen from the Keeping Room right beside it. You can see a doorway opening at the top left. That’s where the butler’s pantry is located as it leads into the Dining Room. To the right is the breakfast table.
The butler’s pantry is a small space, but adding a tiny, lighted tree brought it to life.
The tall, thin Santa figurine is one of the very few red decorations in my house. I bought it several years ago at a craft fair with my Mom. Seeing it always reminds me of that trip with her.
I found this wallhanging at Michaels. As soon as I saw it in the store I knew it would be a perfect addition to my kitchen.
The cooktop is used almost daily, so I didn’t want a lot of decor pieces cluttering this space. There are 2 small wreaths and a candy dish on the counter with soft peppermints.
The wreaths are continued around the kitchen but only on the large cabinets.
They are simple wreaths hung with burlap ribbon. I ordered the starfish on Etsy and attached them to the ribbon with hot glue.
The starfish wreaths are a simple decoration with a big impact on the room. Plus, they are up and out of the way which makes them perfect for my hard working kitchen.
On the countertop by the breakfast table there is a lighted ceramic tree displayed on a wooden tray with sea urchins and a couple more starfish. I’ve also displayed two framed Christmas prints. They are available to print HERE.
Arranging a lantern, starfish, glittered grapevine ball, and a mercury glass votive holder on a wooden tray allows the vignette to be moved easily. So far we’ve placed it on the kitchen island, breakfast table, and on the counter by the breakfast table.
Inside the lantern you can see the tiny Christmas trees I created by stacking sea urchins. I used hot glue to hold them in place. They are nestled in cotton for a snowy effect. I love how they turned out!
Thanks for stopping by my Coastal Christmas Kitchen!
