Christmas Kitchen & Family Room

 Hi there friends!!
Today I'll be showing you some of the Christmas cheer I added in the Heart of our Home...
the kitchen and family room. 
This is one big open space...it's where you'll find us spending most of our time!

 I kept the decorations pretty simple in the kitchen because I added this lighted garland and real wreath to the window this year and it makes a nice statement all on it's own!

 Here's a pretty night shot...and can you see I tweaked it a little too by adding the pretty red glass ornaments. 
I can never leave anything as is!!


 Can you tell how much I LOVE red! 
It's a color that stays around my home even after Christmas.
~~~
Now let's head on into our family room.

 Looking in from the breakfast area...




 This is the third year we have a real tree in here...we love it! 
It's a 9ft. Frasier Fir...it's smells divine and holds it's needles well!
 Thanks so much for stopping by today!
If your new to Northern Nesting I would love for you to follow along!
