Switch out the usual holiday decorations for some DIY holiday decorating ideas and you won’t have to worry about getting a head start on the decorating this year. Well before the month of December approaches, department stores seem to decorate their stores from head to toe with garland and extravagant wreaths. Soon follows the eager homeowners who bring down their holiday decorations from the attic as soon as the Thanksgiving pie is served. Living rooms are strung with lights and presents await to be opened by the fireplace door. However, many people forget to decorate their kitchen, arguably the best room in the house (we may be a bit biased)! Morris Black has quite a bit of experience in the interior design department. It’s no wonder we have a few skills in the holiday decorating department as well!
Your kitchen island is the “hub” of your kitchen. It’s where all your food prep gets done and the place where your children decide to procrastinate their homework. The center of your kitchen of course needs an extra special centerpiece! To create a look all of your guests will love follow these steps:
Grab your favorite holiday colored serving platter (rectangle works best)
Place a few holiday scented candles across the center in a line
Toss fresh cranberries with craft glitter and gently place around the candles
Place a few pinecones around the candles
Light the candles and enjoy!
A simple centerpiece like this is perfect if you don’t want to take away from the natural beauty of your kitchen island. Morris Black Designs is able to create the perfect, custom island in a shape that works best for your family (and all of the holiday parties).
Kitchen cabinets and doorways tend to look a little drab compared to the rest of the icicle-lit house. Spruce them up with some DIY Holiday Decorating Ideas, like edible garland! Check out this recipe for a homemade gingerbread garland. Not only is this garland adorable, but you can customize the garland ribbon to provide a color accent in your kitchen. If you have one of the classic white kitchens try using a red ribbon for a pop of color.
These DIY Holiday Decorating Ideas are perfect for those on a budget. Store boughtwreaths tend to be expensive. Creating your own wreath with items you have on hand leaves you more money to spend on all of those holiday gifts. Your kitchen pantry serves the important job during the holidays of storing all of the homemade cookies. Give your pantry door some love by adding a festive wreath. Take a few old cookie cutters and spray paint them a holiday color. Place in a circle and stick them together using a hot glue gun. Add a sparkly ribbon on the top and you have a homemade kitchen wreath. Of course, using kitchen tools to create the perfect holiday kitchen decoration makes absolute sense! Custom kitchen cabinets by Morris Black only make this look more more complete!
The holidays are about spending time with family. A well-decorated kitchen serves as a place to host meaningful gatherings. It all starts with the basics of a functional kitchen.
