Most people spend a lot of time decorating their home for the holidays, but when it comes to the kitchen, many don’t know how to spruce it up for Christmas. Here are some easy and inexpensive ways to get your kitchen in the holiday spirit.

One thing that adds a lot to the kitchen at any time of the year is decorating above the cabinets. If you have a gap between the top of your cabinets and the ceiling, then you have a great place to decorate! For the holidays, you can put some garlands or greenery. Maybe add some red bows or decorations and little white lights for the season. If you already have decorations there, you can either avoid them or do your best to replace what you currently have with Santa’s, trees, and other Christmas decorations.

You might already give your kitchen table a festive look by putting a Christmas centerpiece in the middle, but why stop there? If your table is big enough, you can put a small tree on it! Maybe one of those quaint Victorian bottle brush trees would look nice? Just something 2 or 3 feet tall and not so wide that it takes up the entire table.

Of course, you’ll want to complete the look by having your table set with plates, placemats, glasses, and silverware in a Christmas theme. Just leave it set up over the holidays and it will add a great festive look to your table. If you’re on a budget, shop at your local thrift store, thrift store, or flea market for Christmas-themed tableware.

Another way to dress up your table is to give it a large festive tablecloth. If you’re really ambitious, you can even make or buy matching chair covers. Even unupholstered chairs can be made to look cozier with fabric slipcovers that slip over the backs. Some cover the seat and the entire chair, while others are made to cover and decorate only the back.

Another place where you can add some Christmas decorations is around the windows. You can place garlands or greenery on the valances or the top of the curtains and put Christmas candles in the window. You can even buy artificial snow for the crystals. A nice little touch is to take a nice piece of ribbon and hang a decoration in each of the windows.

Our last Christmas decorating tip really completes the look and brings the room together with Christmas accents! Buy potholders, dish towels and rugs in a Christmas theme and sprinkle them around the room to complete the look. If you’re really ambitious, you can get cookie jars, jars, and other Christmas-themed counter items. Again, try garage sales, consignment stores, and even antique stores for inexpensive items to use for your decor.
