Christmas In The Kitchen

Only a few more days until Christmas!  Is everyone ready? I think I finally have my shopping done. I've been out at the mall three days in a row! lol...Nothing like last minute shopping and fighting the crowds. It really puts me in the Christmas spirit!
 
Before it's all over I want to show you my Christmas kitchen. I will be showing the dining room on Christmas eve if you would like to come back. Anyway, I have been decorating the kitchen in the gingerbread/candy cane theme for several years and still love it. Candy just makes me happy!!
 
This vignette is on my island. I found the Santa at Pier 1 Imports this year. I set him in the middle of a decorated wreath with a gingerbread house and added some fun candle holders.
 
 Here is my kitchen table decorated in the gingerbread theme...
 
 

 My gingerbread tree...I decorated the top with candy canes and shiny red curly sticks.
 
I love my cute gingerbread plate!
 Here is an arrangement I made...please excuse the glitter/dust on the counter top...oops!
 
 More cute gingerbread accessories...my friend gave me the cookbook several years ago and it has some great recipes in it.
 
 Here is my gingerbread terrarium made from sugar and real candy. The gingerbread men are ornaments.
 
 
 This gingerbread tassel hangs on my kitchen island.
 
 I decorated the tops of light fixtures with ribbon, large Christmas picks, and glittery curly sticks.
 

I hope you enjoyed the tour!!
 
Merry Christmas!!

At that time the standard on the covering fabric also as the digesting level is not high. Layout [URL=http://www.nfoutletonline.net/#1062]north face outlet online[/URL] ended up compare lusterless. The content of cashmere was minimal although the quantity of filler had been cheesy. What's worse, the look was unsightly.
