Decorating in my kitchen isn't possible as it is super tiny...I do however have a breakfast nook and I decorate there....
Since I'm away from home for a few days I'm sharing last years kitchen tree
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

This gets me in the mood for some Christmas baking!  
How about you?

Since Atlanta is my hometown, I agree that we love our "co-cola" in the South.

Happy Christmas Hugs to you and yours!

I love your festive breakfast room! It's so cheerful! Your Pillsbury Doughboy is my favorite but I love your Coke ornament too. Our family has enjoyed visiting The World of Coke in Atlanta several times. It's such a fun place!

Linda, I love your kitchen tree!! I also put a tree in my kitchen, and I think I have more fun decorating it than I do my big tree. Hope everything is going well for you!

Sue said...

What a cute little tree for the kitchen, Linda! I have 6 Santa's that I bought from Kohl's last year, but your guy wasn't available. I ♥ all of your ornies- and the doughboy is perfect as a topper! BTW, little Tiger is a cutie pie- glad he likes playing w/his new train. :-)

Bird said...

Yay! You're Christmas Kitchen Tree. That is such a joyful little tree. Makes me want to do something like that in our kitchen.

Mary said...

Linda, I love your kitchen Christmas tree. I especially like the muffin tin ornament. But, they are all so darling :)
