I’m so glad you stopped by the cottage today! I wish you could stop by for a little glass of bubbly to celebrate the season with me! I like any excuse for a glass of my favorite prosecco!!
Today I have photos of our kitchen and dining area to share…as I mentioned in and earlier post our kitchen and family room are really the hub of our home… it’s just one big open space and I love it that way!
I was really going for a Florida style Coastal Christmas this year so I kept things simple with palm fronds, a wreath and some fresh flowers for the kitchen…
For the kitchen wreath I added a big burlap bow and two wooden spoons- so cute!!
Moving on to the dining area… our big farmhouse table is set for a yummy holiday brunch!
Don’t you love brunch?? It’s the best of breakfast AND lunch!!
For The centerpiece I used my big wooden tray with rope handles filled with evergreen clippings, hurricane candles along with some tall palm fronds and fresh hydrangeas and of course, a starfish!!
This big table really is my favorite place in the whole world… I love to sit down with family and friends and share a meal- any time of year, but especially at Christmas!
Here’s a look back into our family room…
This year I stumbled across the most beautiful napkins at Homegoods. I have been searching for napkins like these for as long as I can remember and they finally appeared a few weeks ago! They are white and ruffly and big and made of a thin wrinkly linen fabric…
They look fabulous with my Etsy shop Starfish napkin rings! Click HERE for more details. They are so pretty I doubt they will ever see any real use (hahaha!). I love them so much I’d hate to see taco meat and spaghetti stains on them!
You may not know this, but in Florida there are very few fireplaces (we really have very little need for them) so hanging stockings can be a bit tricky.
I have just always hung the stockings on the back of my kids dining chairs, which looks great and is fun to fill with little treats throughout the weeks leading up to Christmas!
I recently restocked my Etsy shop for the holidays, so CLICK HERE to take a look, I have so many beautiful gifts for your favorite coastal style friend or loved one!
Thanks so much for joining me today wishing you all a wonderful week!
