I have finally gotten around to taking pictures of all of my Christmas kitchen decor. The theme is red buffalo check, which is where all of the buffalo check DIYs come into play.
I hope you get many ideas for your own Christmas season decor! Without further ado, here goes!
Our kitchen is a small galley type space, so this is the best “overall” picture I have.
I placed my two check wreaths on the cabinets above our stove and microwave. I think the wreaths came out great. These cabinet door are the perfect place for them. To make your own wreaths, see my red buffalo check wreaths tutorial here.
On the countertops below the wreaths I placed a white mixing bowl that has a red trim & reindeer with its own adorable mixing utensils; the spatula has a cute little reindeer. I bought it at Marshall’s a few years ago.
The salt & pepper shakers are sweater-clad reindeer; also from Marshall’s. My mini Santa baking dish will come in handy in the next few weeks of baking.
To the right of the stove is a small faux Christmas tree with green and black buffalo check material for its tree skirt. It’s about 7-8″ tall and came from Target.
On the opposite side of the kitchen is our coffee station. The candy cane wreath on the laundry room door & two wreaths over the microwave left these cabinets looking bare. I painted a “Merry & Bright” sign white & made a bow from my red buffalo check wired ribbon. See that tutorial here.
To bring some festive cheer to our coffee station, I wrapped the red buffalo check ribbon around the milk and sugar containers. They are blue, but with the ribbon, they go perfectly with the theme. I took our white coffee cups from the cup tree and replaced them with the Christmas themed cups that we’ve acquired over the years. I put Splenda packets in a green Christmas tree shape glass dish.
Next to the wood tray I put a sign from Michael’s that is red buffalo check that says, ” Home for the Holidays.
The sink is to the right of the picture above. I have a Christmas hand soap from Bath & Body Works. It’s vanilla bean noel scented that smells so good. It’s great to have since we are all washing our hands so many times a day. It doesn’t dry our hands out either.
I got a really good deal at Michael’s and scored a Christmas tree in a galvanized metal type bucket. It’s very farmhouse looking. I got 70% off a few days before Thanksgiving. I did change the bow that was at the top. It was very “grandmother’s old stuff” but not in a vintage good way either! I had a pick from Michael’s that was a sled clad in red buffalo check, so I removed the old ribbon and pushed the pick into the tree so that the sled is the topper. It looks great! This decoration was placed in front of the sink on the raised bar.
Next to the sink on the left side is a white cookie jar from Target. It’s really plain, it only has “Cookie House” written in red, but I plan to spruce it up with some vinyl. The white and black tree farm tea towel is the match to the towel on the stove. It hangs on the really handy bar that hooks over a cabinet drawer or door. We needed something to go next to the sink so we didn’t drip water all over the floor getting to a hand towel. I love that little thing.
There is a vanilla cookie dough scented three-wick candle by the jar. It smells amazing. I got in a Black Friday sale at Michael’s, 3 for $24. They are normally $24 each. The scent stays around, and spreads really far. Definitely worth the money!
Here’s a final look at our kitchen Christmas decor. I hope you like it and that it will spark your imagination to create your own Christmas season look.

Next the two buffalo check small wreaths. Here is the tutorial on my red burlap reindeer wreath that has light on the back which illuminates it beautifully.
