Decorating the shelves in my butler’s pantry has become one of my favorite things to style for the holidays. Today I’m inviting you inside to share a closer look at Christmas in my Butler’s Pantry. I’m also sharing a sneak peek at some of the other spaces I’m decorating around my home.
I’m so happy to welcome you back into my home today for a little more holiday magic. It’s extra exciting as I’ve teamed up with my Seasons of Home blogger friends again. Each of us are taking you inside our home to share how we’ve decorated for the season. I adore this group and each of their spaces is more magical than the next.

Christmas In my Butlers Pantry
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I’m still working on decorating my home for Christmas. (I’ve been doing my best to share a behind-the-scenes look at my process, so be sure to follow along HERE if you’re interested.) I feel a bit behind as it seems everyone else got a head start this year. However, I’m doing my best to take my time and just enjoy the process. This time of year is one of my favorites for decorating, so I’m savoring every step.
One of the first spaces I decided to decorate was my butler’s pantry. If you’re new here, last year I completed a major kitchen remodel (see the reveal here) and added a butler’s pantry to my home. One thing I wanted in this space was a wall of open shelves so that I could put my favorite kitchen items on display.
For Christmas, I decided to add pops of red in this space. I love how it works with the sage green color of my cabinetry. (You can find all the details of this space in my kitchen reveal post HERE.)
A couple years ago I started a collection of Santa mugs. Some are new. Some are old. It has been such a fun thing to hunt for when I’m out on my antiquing adventures. Some of the newer Santa mugs are from Pottery Barn. They have a standard size mug HERE and some of the mini mugs HERE. It’s a great place to start if you’re looking to begin your own collection.
I also have a couple sets of Santa and Mrs. Claus salt and pepper shakers. They are newer. I’m particularly fond of the pair that is kissing. They got a more prominent display on my shelves. After I put my collection of mugs and S&P shakers in place, I filled in with some faux greens. This is such an easy way to make a space feel more cozy and seasonal.
Another one of my favorite additions to this space is my little ceramic light-up tree. This one is vintage. I found it at an antique store a couple years ago. It adds a touch of nostalgia, whimsy, and color.
Opposite the tree, I have a window and sink here in my butlers pantry. This area doesn’t often get photographed because it’s at such a strange angle. However, I did want to show you that I hung a small wreath with a piece of red satin ribbon on this window. It matches the wreaths I’ve hung in my kitchen.
I also added a couple of small Christmas touches to my vintage tray wall. I swapped out one of the trays for a “Season’s Greetings” tray and added a small bottle wreath to another.
Just outside the pantry, in my kitchen, I tucked a small tree into a large bowl. (The tree I found at a local store HERE and the large bowl I found HERE.) I think I’ll add some lights and decor to it as well – perhaps some cookie cutters as ornaments.
I also have a peg hook under my clock. Here I hung a small faux wreath and some bells. It’s just enough to make it feel like Christmas.
Now I know a lot of my Seasons of Home friends are sharing a larger and grander look throughout their entire home. I’m still over here decorating, but I did want to give you a peek at some of the things I’m working on and how the rest of my holiday decor here at Bayberry House is coming along. So here’s a sneak peek at what’s to come:
And that’s a wrap, my friends! I hope you enjoyed this little Holiday Home Tour of my butler’s pantry and are excited for what’s to come here at Bayberry House as the season unfolds. It’s always such a joy to bring you along on this adventure. My goal in sharing is the hope to inspire you and give you ideas for adding a little magic to your own space.
