French Country Christmas Breakfast Room


A little French, a little rustic and a little Christmas in the breakfast room. I just put together a few things to create a Christmasy vignette on my vintage French farm table. Next weekend this table will be set and surrounded with family and a big Christmas breakfast.

I gathered things I had on hand for this vignette.

Everything sits on a vintage grain sack.

A vintage enamelware pitcher with a tiny grain sack stocking and a piece of greenery tucked in.

A stack of linen napkins and vintage silverware.

Plates I bought a few years ago at HomeGoods.

Oranges fill an old French bread basket.

Did you notice my fancy new crown molding? That is part of the kitchen reno and we still keep staring at it. Now, we will need to add some trim in the great room some day. One project leads to another.

Come back tomorrow to see the Christmas kitchen with the new look!


  1. What a beautiful table to greet your family on Christmas day and throughout the season! Love the oranges in the French bread basket!

  2. It looks very festive. Love the crown molding.
    I have launched the Great Curtain Making Project. Many doubts and regrets. It's one of those things where the sewing itself isn't difficult--rectangles--but getting the measurements just so and everything straight with such a huge (12') hunk of fabric....I may be bald by Christmas from tearing my hair out.

  3. Love your table, and the vignette is so festive - enjoy the holidays!

  4. Beautiful Kim. Ohhhhh love the crown molding. Gorgeous.

  5. Love your Christmas vignette in your kitchen nook. I posted clove oranges yesterday along with a hint. I love your new molding. Can't wait to see everything!

  6. I always love crown molding. What a pretty setting! Your family will feel like royalty.

  7. Kim, I would love to cozy up to this pretty offering on Christmas morning or any morning for that matter. The new molding is fabulous. Great look!

    The new crown molding is a show-stopper. Your rubbed golden lantern still looks great. Looking forward to seeing your kitchen renovation.
