My husband made an island for me that moves but most of the time I keep it against a wall under a black wrought iron pot rack.
On the island I have a small Christmas tree with red lights. The wine bottle dressed in his festive sweater is a birthday gift from one of my dear friends who often shares a glass of red wine with me.
I don't hang pots and pans on my pot rack anymore because after we installed it we found my husband is so tall he was always hitting his head on the pots. So now it usually hold coffee cups and we use the island mostly to serve beverages. Today it holds my Christmas mugs from Hallmark with some holly, red berries, and red birds tucked in to make it bright.
I made a quick center piece by using a green glass bowl, nestling together a soft garland of holly and a few velvet poinsettia.
I almost never put a tablecloth on this table as this is where we eat daily and my husband is afraid he will get the tablecloth dirty. So I just add some colorful napkins with Santa riding his reindeer.
On a small rack above the stairway is a small wrought iron rack that usually holds vintage kitchen tools but now is host to my fishing Santa's.
