I scavenged the kitchen for cookie cutters, measuring cups and anything which I could stick into the kitchen tree. This little tree certainly has a more "classic country" feel than our living room beachy tree. I guess since I grew up on a farm, that part of my childhood has stuck with me.
While I decorated the tree, Liz decided to bake the hubby and I some Pumpkin Muffins. Isn't she a sweet daughter?
Christmas Tree Supplies....measuring spoons, blank gift tags, cookie cutters, tea cups, old silverware, torn fabric strips, starfish, twine, scissors - check.
...and tah-dah!! It's magically all decorated!!!
I love gingerbread men!
The "beautiful tier cakes" and "Hershey's" fliers were my mom's from the 1950's; which I found in an old recipe box of hers.
You can see part of my "My Ice Cream" hand-stamped spoon from Beach House Living(tm). They are so cute. If you aren't familiar, we recommend you check out their store.
We wrote favorite food words on the blank gift tags...The Pineapple Upside Down Cake is another recipe from my mom. I even stuck a candy thermometer in the tree!
The bistro sign at the top usually hangs on one of my kitchen walls but it worked perfectly as the topper. It was really fun adding new and old kitchen gadgets to the tree.
and Minnie seriously couldn't care less!
(We found her sleeping with her head resting on this package so we tossed the bow on her and she never moved!)
I'll show you my Kitchen window tomorrow...
