Christmas Kitchen Counters

The kitchen is one of the first rooms I decorate for Christmas. I start using my Christmas dishes right after Thanksgiving so that we can enjoy them all month long. I love Christmas dishes!
Spode tea kettle, Christmas bowls, trays and a  wooden NOEL sign found in a thrift shop.
Christmas tree cookie jar, lamp shade and recipe basket liner.
Holly spoon rest, Spode cup & saucer and pot holders. 
The lighted wreath looks pretty at night.
The long view.
I used Christmas wine stoppers on the oil and vinegar bottles.
Spode cups are used in the sugar and flour canisters.
 Mug Shots-I store extra coffee and tea in the ornament canisters at the coffee station.
Santa towels are topped with hand crotched pot holders found in a thrift shop.

Theres's lots more, so come back soon!


  1. Great looking counter vignettes.

  2. Simply gorgeous... May I invite you to join in the Christmas decor and delights carnival here..

  3. What a fun way to get into the Christmas spirit -- what a lovely kitchen you have.

  4. Your kitchen looks so festive, Rita May! I think the white makes for a great background for your decorations. It seems kitchens are a popular link up this year ~ I did a counter vignette myself this year.

  5. It looks so fun! I want to come over and have a treat! :)

  6. FAB counters! I need to spruce up my coffee area! Love it! Very inviting!

  7. Such gorgeous stuff, Rita! Thank you for joining our Carnival!


  8. Rita, you have such a delightful explosion of fun Christmas themed items!! You are blessed with lots of wonderful treasures & the beautiful space to display & enjoy seeing them all month long. I get my stuff out the day after T'day, too. ;-)

    That tiled tray at the back of your stove is very unique...I've never seen one like it! And how FUN to put your Spode cups inside the canisters...very original.

    I may borrow your idea for the coffee station accessories for our party here on the 16th. Very cute!

  9. Soo great, love your Christmas kitchen!
