TIS THE SEASON

Tis the season for lots of baking and yummy goodies!  Here in my breakfast nook I have my Kitchen Tree!  So enjoy! 
Merry Kitchen Christmas!
Cute Santa's helping with the cookies
I missed getting this ornament last year but they did a re-issue this year.  It is so perfect for the tree!
This year Cupcakes!  These are Hallmark ornaments
I used the $5 coupons found in magazines so I paid under $5 for each of them!  
Perfect cupcake for this tree!
Pillsbury doughboy and Coca Cola Bear
We love our Coke in Atlanta
Other ornaments include gingerbread cookies in cute shapes
Under the tree is a gingerbread house, candy cane tree and mini cookie cutters
I used red and white kitchen towels for the tree skirt
Oh look it's a Cookies for Santa plate, found at the thrift for only 99 cents.  Add some gingerbread cookies and we are ready for Santa!
I got this guy on sale after Christmas last year at Kohl's
He adds a really fun element to the display
I'm joining the party
A Few Of My Favorite Things


and also

Happy Day! 
Linda

Oh, I love your tree. I've always enjoyed trees that have a theme. Do you think I should load my tree with black pens, hi-lighters, research articles, and call it a PhD tree?? Yuck:)

That is so adorable Linda! I just saw some of those at the Hallmark store. I actually bought a friend of mine the Charlie brown and Lucy therapy one...it is hilarious when you push the button it is Lucy giving Charlie therapy ( this friend always calls me with her WOES) Have a great Sunday....stay warm and keep baking.

Linda, I adore this idea. I have a strange kitchen with totally limited counterspace. I'm going to send this link to my daughter, though. She has a ton!

Really a wonderful, happy post today!

Thanks for brightening my morning.

Sarah said...

Linda, your kitchen tree is adorable. You have some sweet little ornaments. It's fun to have a special small tree. I have one with roosters, hearts, and a few other folk art type ornaments. Happy Holidays! ~ Sarah

Your tree is so cute. I particularly like the cupcake ornaments. I think both of my daughters-in-law would like cupcake ornaments as they are avid bakers. Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed your post.

Those little ornaments are so cute! They make such amazing stuff in miniature these days. Such a pretty post!

~~Carol~~ said...

Merry Kitchen Christmas to you too, Linda! I love it all, especially the baker Santa. I'm finding that more and more of my decorations are ending up in the kitchen. If I have to cook, it might as well be merry in there too!

Sue said...

Linda, I love all that color on that amazing white tree!! And Santa from Kohls is a cutie. I wanted him, but they were out when I went shopping for him. Ordered a wine Santa instead. LOL I love my Coke here in Ohio. Grew up drinking it in NM, where we called everything, "coke." LOL
