Christmas, Christmas, Time is Near! Time for Fun and Time for Cheer! Blogger Stylin' Home Tour: Christmas Edition 2014

Welcome back to Eleven Gables Christmas Home Tour (part 2)!  If you missed part one, don't worry, you can catch up HERE!  I am so thrilled to be participating in another installment of Blogger Stylin' Home Tours hosted by Lindsay of The White Buffalo Stylin' Co .  If you are joining me from Jenna at Rain on a Tin Roof, Welcome!!  If you missed her tour, be sure and stop by.  

Today, I am showing you around the kitchen and keeping room. The new kitchen is where we spend the majority of our time, so it was important to keep the decor clean, simple, and colorful.   




 Blue and White is the anchor in my kitchen.  My wedding dishes are Spode Blue Italian.  I loved adding in Red and Green this Christmas.   






My boys decorated this gingerbread house all on their own.  This year, I purchased a preassembled gingerbread house and it made a world of difference with the littles!!

For my kitchen tree, I dug out my copper cookie cutters and tied them to the tree.


The vent hood mantle got a fresh boxwood wreath with a red bow and little deer mount.


The hot chocolate station is ready to go!!












The Keeping room:




2015 will bring new slips to Eleven Gables!  The floral needs to go!  But Mr. Eleven Gables put the breaks on my shenanigans this year after the porch remodel.  The plaid wreaths on the windows were my mother's.










The side table holds china ornaments and sharpies at the ready for my whims!


My latest hobby is hand "painted" ornaments.  I wrote an easy tutorial for you HERE.


  


Thank you for coming on my Christmas Kitchen tour!  
Next week, I will feature an easy & delicious cocktail you will definitely want to keep in your Holiday Pinterest file!! 


A few glimpses of my Christmas Tour, part one:





The children are nestled all snug in their beds; with visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads...






Next up on the tour is Burlap and Lace!

    2. Are the "You are Loved plates" available anywhere that you know of? I love using it for Christmas, but also love the birthday plate idea! Would love to get them for my 4 adult "kids" to use for their children's birthdays! Sweet tradition!

  16. Timeless. Elegant. Charming. Inviting. These are a few of the many words that come to mind when I take your home tour! I love how you used the wreaths and red bows to tie everything together into one big Christmas bow. I also love how your Christmas decorations have such meaning and thoughtfulness behind them. So many Christmas decorations out there seem so random, but yours have reason for being present. I also love how your decorations create intimate spaces for gatherings. I want to spend Christmas morning brunching in your kitchen! You have created a haven of beauty and joy! Thank you for sharing and inspiring with your signature decorating style!
