Holiday Decorating : Day EIGHT

By July 18th, 2018 No Comments

Originally I was going to write about entryways for day 8 of my holiday decorating series, but after seeing so many beautifully styled kitchens I decide to change directions. In most houses the kitchen is  the heart of the home.  So why not make it just as festive as the rest of your house.  To help you,  here’s are some of my favourite ideas for the kitchen.

I actually helped style the shelves shown in the background here for the Leaside Holiday Home Tour that took place a few weeks ago. I was only there for a short time but it was a lot of fun and I’m definitely going to look into getting involved again next year!
