Well hello there sunshine and happy Monday! How was your weekend? It was actually pretty laid back around here. In fact, I only left the house once. Seriously, have I told y’all I’m a homebody?! It’s true, and my husband teases me about my old lady status all the time. What can I say? I like being home. Plus I had a sick kiddo this weekend, so that adds to the home-ness. Anyway, I hope your weekend was fabulous and you’re ready to start a brand new week. Today I want to share our simple Christmas kitchen decor, and a cute little hot chocolate bar that my kids have been obsessed with lately. They are huge hot chocolate fans and we take it pretty seriously around here. We go all out out with fancy marshmallows, chocolate stirring sticks, sprinkles, whipped cream, etc. It’s so fun, and it’s always one of my favorite things about this time of year.
I love putting this little hot cocoa bar together for my kids every Christmas, and it’s so fun to watch how excited they get over such a simple thing. Isn’t that the best part of holidays? It’s those simple little traditions that make this time of year so sweet. And they pretty much drink hot chocolate every day, so this stash of goodies doesn’t last long!
I kept this Christmas kitchen decor pretty simple in here with just a few little things–garland above the window (from Michael’s last year), a mini tree, a yummy Christmas candle, and a small DIY wreath on the chalkboard. That’s it–easy peasy. I didn’t even decorate the other half of our kitchen!
This weekend, the older kids and I made our first batch of Christmas sugar cookies. I let them do all of the frosting and decorating, and it was SO fun. The kitchen was a total mess, but I loved it. And these cookies are delicious!
Sometimes I hesitate to share things with you guys because I think it might be too simple or not “interesting” enough for the blog, but I always have to remind myself that simple is good. Our kitchen isn’t the biggest or the fanciest by any means, but it’s definitely the heart of our home. I love adding in little pops of Christmas kitchen decor to make it feel cozy for the season. That little cutie helps too!
Thanks for hanging out with me today!! I always appreciate it. Now here’s a few other holiday posts you might want to wander over to while you’re here:
