Even though it has been a few years since I have had red in my house, I wanted to add a bit to my kitchen. It just seemed so festive, and I love the idea of just a hint of red. I wanted to add Touches of Red and give you a little Holiday Kitchen Tour.
I love this table runner with a hand-stitched look. The red snowflakes are so festive and it has a french look to it.
I love the look of pomegranates at the holidays. My kids love to eat them and beg for them every day. I’ve found It’s not so bad peeling them under water in a bowl. I think they are so pretty and add just a pop of color. There is nothing like a dash of juice and some seeds in some champagne. 🙂
After the first picture, I swapped out the green avocados for pears and I like it much better. I really love how they look with the small boxwood wreaths hanging from ribbons on the hutch.
I found this plate at Anthropologie on sale for $7. I thought the deer was perfect and I liked the little red dots with the winter scenery.
A couple of candy canes in a jar are perfect for bribery. We buy the ones from Whole Foods that are colored with natural beet dye. My little one is allergic to some red dyes. While they aren’t a bright red, they still taste yummy. That’s why there are only about 6 left and I just opened them about 5 days ago.
For a fun touch of decor, a mug from Goodwill holds a little holiday nest.
And I love switching the mugs out for more festive ones on my vintage bottle drying rack.
And I had to show you this little, red chair I picked up this last fall that goes so well in my kitchen.
I bought it at The Kane County Flea Market. I had intended to sell it, but now I just can’t part with it, it’s so darn cute; and the kids love sitting on it. Maybe I should make it the new time out chair 😉
