Wildcard Wednesday: Crazy about the Kitchen & Breakfast Nook

Throughout this year you've seen glimpses of my Spring & Fall decor.....typically little touches here & there.  Christmas, however, is a whole other story.....I tend to go crazy with the Christmas decor!
In fact, the past 2 years, I've had a Christmas tree in almost every room.  In other words, I've put up six Christmas trees...all a different theme or color scheme!  That doesn't even include all of the other decor! 

Now, I must admit, this year is going to be a bit different.  As much as I LOVE decorating for Christmas (it's a creative outlet for me), being 7 months pregnant & spending every weekend working on the nursery, I'll be doing good to get one tree up.  So I figured I'd just revisit some of my decor from last year!  But just a word of warning, these posts are going to be overloaded with photos!  Hope you enjoy!

Today I'll start my tour in the kitchen, where a 2 ft. tree adds some Christmas spirit behind the sink.

Little chef & baker fairies (by Mark Roberts) sit here & there, ready to do some Christmas baking. 
 Glittery grapes in shapes of green & purple continue the theme, while burgandy tulle acts as a tree skirt.

Other touches of Christmas are scattered throughout the kitchen as well.....

.....a cute little stocking dresses up a cabinet door.....

.....while the glass canisters you've seen so many times are filled with ornaments in coordinating colors....
{click here & here to revisit them through the seasons}
.....Christmas cookbooks & oven mitts are ready to be used for baking.....
.....and of course, the cake stand gets its seasonal makeover.....
....with a Chocolatier Fairy (by Mark Roberts), glittery candy canes, & pomegranates. 
In my opinion, the more sparkle, the better!

The breakfast nook, just off the kitchen, also gets a few festive touches.....

.....a glittery swag above the doorway.....

.....and another fun stocking in lime green & red (I have a thing for stockings!)......

The reason I chose this stocking is because my tablescape in the breakfast nook is filled with lime green & red.....but you'll have to wait 'til tomorrow to see the table! 

Okay, I'll give you one little clue as to it's's a peek at the chandelier above the table.....
.....are you starting to get an idea?

Well, come back tomorrow to see the chandelier in more detail & the fun tablescape below!
And be sure to check back next week to see the 9ft. tree in my living room, my Christmas mantel, & other decor!
