In the midst of a festive season, with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day quite close together, followed by Valentine’s Day and Easter not terribly long afterward, there is much business to celebrate each holiday in our own way. No celebration would be complete without food, decorations, and social activities, whether it is with a significant other or a whole group of family and friends. The home kitchen is a key part of any festivity. Here’s how to create a festive kitchen for any celebration.
Festive Kitchen Design Ideas
Create Central Kitchen Seating
The most festive kitchens encourage feasting, which means a place to sit and gather round a central point with others and wine and dine. If possible, create a kitchen island in your kitchen or between the kitchen and dining or living room where people can sit together.
Connect the Kitchen with the Dining Room
If you do not have space to design a dine-in kitchen, convenient access to the dining room would be appropriate. Dining rooms are still popular today and can double as a home office. The traditional dining room is the formal central point for the most ornate and abundant feasts.
Equip Your Kitchen with Feast-Worthy Appliances
Kitchens are primarily for preparing meals, so design your kitchen to be able to produce as robust meals as you imagine yourself making. Double wall ovens are highly useful for cooking mains and sides simultaneously while warming drawers hold dishes awaiting others to be ready. A decent-sized fridge and pantry can hold all ingredients and leftovers without busting.
Decorating Your Kitchen for Celebrations
A decorative centerpiece on your kitchen counter or kitchen island is simple but effective enough to set the mood. Add a vase of flowers for Valentine’s Day, an Advent evergreen centerpiece for Christmas, or a bowl of decorative pumpkins for Thanksgiving.
Decorations for Accent Lights
If you have pendant lights, you can hang wreaths, ribbons, or other decorations on them to boost the festive spirit. They are already decorative pieces; all you need to do is dress them up a bit.
Festive Dishware, Textiles, Tools, and Cutlery
Invest in some signature holiday pieces to switch in and out of your kitchen with other holiday pieces. You can find loads of seasonal dishes, cutlery, potholders, tea towels, and cooking tools on the market.
