Welcome to the last stop on my 4th of July home tour and it’s the kitchen! After sharing our dining room and mantle earlier this week, the kitchen also got a little 4th of July farmhouse kitchen love. (P.S. – don’t forget to enter the summer giveaway!)
Our kitchen is divided into two zones: the “work” side and the “eat” side. On one end of the island is our bar area, with three bar stools. I used some World Market dish towels as placemats, and layered our regular Noritake Colorwave plates with some cute dessert plates and napkins.
I mentioned yesterday that I spent a total of $12 on my 4th of July decor this year. It was for a new 4th of July topper for my Nora Fleming platter. A family friend gave us one a few month’s ago and I love it! I also bought a golf topper to use for our Masters party next year.
Above the range, is my other super simple DIY. I wanted a patriotic platter to put up here, but didn’t want to buy anything new. I already owned an off-white platter with the red stripe, and cut a star out of some leftover card stock to stick in the middle. And by leftover card stock, I mean a piece from my scrapbooking kit that I haven’t used in probably 10 years. #hoardingforthewin
I’m currently on the hunt for a pretty planter for my new snake plant, so it’s living in a plastic container for now. And the fiddle fig is still going strong!
This is the view from where the fridge is, looking towards the dining room on the right. I don’t share this view too often, but wanted to take some new full shots to share in a kitchen round-up soon.
Happy 4th of July!
