We are so excited to be partnering with World Market today for a fun “Christmas in the Kitchen” post! My girls and I love to bake, and we especially love Christmas baking this time of year. In fact, I’d say during the fall and winter we usually bake several times a week. One of my favorite places to shop for kitchen gadgets is World Market – they have items that are not only functional, but also so pretty to look at! I love when you can have every day items like mixing bowls, measuring cups and spoons out on the counters and they still look beautiful and add to the decor.

I absolutely love this White Melamine Batter Bowl. It’s the perfect bowl for baking!

Lillie and I used it to make some cute little mini gingerbread houses. Well, technically we didn’t make gingerbread houses, we made one batch using our pumpkin bread recipe and we made the other using a Salted Caramel Bread Mix we got from World Market.

How cute are these gingerbread village molds?!?!

It’s such a quick and easy way to make a gingerbread village! We were planning on using icing to make doors and windows but ran out of time so just sprinkled some powdered sugar on them and that still looked cute.

After we made the gingerbread village we made some sugar cookies. We used this hammered gold bowl and the copper measuring cups and spoons.

And then Lillie loved using these adorable cookie stamps! One says “Home Made” and the other says “Made With Love”.

I love all their copper and gold mixing bowls, storage bowls and kitchen tools. They look so festive during the holidays but can be used year round as well!


World Market has more than just baking items for the kitchen. Pretty much everything you see on this counter is from World Market. I love the warmth the oversized cutting board adds to this wall and the Bay Leaf Candle adds such a delicious aroma throughout our kitchen for the Christmas season.

I also love these marble patterned canisters and this is the prettiest coffee maker I’ve ever seen! And I love their gold faceted glass vases. I got them in a couple of different sizes.

We added some of these bell clusters to a stocking on our pantry door as well as on some doorknobs in the room.

There are so many other great festive touches you can add that can still be used throughout the rest of the year as well, like this faux cowhide rug that is cozy under my feet during these cold months and a tea kettle with gold accents.

Here’s another angle into our kitchen. We got these chairs at World Market several years ago and I still love them just as much as when we first got them.

Be sure to head on over to World Market and check out all of their amazing kitchen items and all of their beautiful holiday decor!!!

World Market launched their Golden Llama Treasure Hunt! Each day until November 22, 2017, five golden llamas will be hidden throughout the store. Daily clues will be shared through social media and online and customers are invited to search for a golden llama in exchange for a reward coupon valued at $20, $50 or $100 to be used for merchandise in stores. That’s over $1 Million in Total Rewards! For rules and how to play go to www.worldmarket.com/hunt. I am hoping to head on over today or tomorrow to hunt for one!

    The gingerbread houses are darling. I actually think I prefer them just sprinkled with the powdered sugar, looks like a light dusting of snow on the rooftops. Everything looks so pretty. You have made great use of the space you have.
    I need to make a trip over to World Market. So many pretty yet functional things for the holidays.
