For years I had wanted a kitchen Christmas tree
filled with goodies and surrounded by gingerbread
houses and candy trees and fun nutcrackers
and last year I created this one.
But the little table I had displayed it on didn't
do it justice, so this year it was moved to the
kitchen island where it could spread out and
have a bigger home for the Christmas season.
It's only 14 days to Christmas, probably less by the time you read this
post and we try to make it magical here at Purple Chocolat Home.
That's my job at Christmas,
to create the magic,
and I enjoy it more than anything!
I just love to see the sparkle in the little ones'eyes
as they explore all of the magic in the house.
I think the grandkids enjoy it more than my own children did!
This tree got some new additions this year with these
adorable cloche ornaments filled with a sparkly cupcake.
The cupcake cloche ornaments take center stage on our
Sugarplum Tree Tablescape.
The tree is decorated in bright pink and green.
So I chose these fun scalloped chargers and alternated
them across the island.
I don't have much in the way of plates in these fabulous colors
so I stacked white plates on top.
Pink frosted glasses are perfect with the tablescape.
Bright green oversized butterflies morph into
oversized napkin rings.
They reflect the pink and green butterflies on the tree.
What child wouldn't be happy to sit here?
The island gives me so much more room to display all
of these fun sugarplum items.
The sparkly pink tree is filled with candy and cupcakes,
Gingerbread and ice cream cones.
cookies and more!
It is topped with giant lollipops in pink and green.
This cupcake snowglobe is filled with a miniature gingerbread house.
Of course we have to include a magical elf who is decorating
the gingerbread house.
Although this house looks edible, it isn't, so we can use it
year after year.
I love Krinkles too, so there are several Krinkles collectibles
included in the island display.
I have been collecting nutcrackers since we were married
and although these two aren't expensive, they are some
of my favorites. They are perfect for the display.
Don't you just adore his cupcake hat and his ribbon candy staff?
A cupcake ornament gets a little attention on a mini cake pedestal.
Fantastical trees adorn the display too.
And since I had some homemade sugarplums, I thought they
should show off a little until someone eats them.
I always hang ornaments from my ceiling in the kitchen.
Here is a shot of that.
Several have asked, so I am going to update and tell you that I
just thumbtack the ribbons to the ceiling. Our ceiling is hand rubbed
plaster so it chips just a little but you can't see it from floor level. I
often choose the same hole. I have been hanging things from the
ceilings for over 15 years now. I was inspired by some retail
stores one year at Christmas. I have now inspired many friends
to do it too.
And this is how everything sparkles at night.
I even caught the blue hour out the dinette window.
I hope you enjoyed our fun Sugarplum Tree Tablescape today.
