The sweet aroma of gingerbread, twinkling fairy lights, and the unmistakable hum of carols - Christmas is just around the corner, it is time to decorate and organise your kitchen. With the festive season nearing, it’s the perfect time to get your kitchen in tip-top shape, blending functionality with festive flair. Thanks to the experts at Pretty Little Designs, we've curated a list of seamless ways to ensure your kitchen sings in harmony with the carols. Dive into our Christmas kitchen guide to ensure a smooth and merry culinary journey! So, without further ado, here are ten easy ways to organise your kitchen for Christmas. 

1. Organise Your Countertops to Decorate

Are you looking for tips to simultaneously organise your kitchen and decorate for Christmas? Want a festive and functional kitchen? Start by decluttering and cleaning those countertops for a clutter-free zone. This will give you space to prepare food, display festive ornaments, and serve friends and family. 

2. Appliance Accessibility 

Your oven and microwave are the festive feast heroes! One of the best kitchen organisation tips is to ensure they're spick-and-span and in tip-top condition, so there's no culinary hiccup when Santa comes visiting. If you're fortunate enough to have the extra space, consider organising your frequently-used appliances in easily accessible areas. I personally prefer storing mine in crates at the bottom of my pantry. With Pretty Little Designs' clear and pretty labels & tags, not only will you know exactly where everything is, but everyone else in the home will too. It's a game-changer for smooth festive cooking!

3. Prepare Your Pantry 

Organising your pantry will help massively with preparing your kitchen for Christmas. A well-organised pantry is your secret weapon. Stock it with essential ingredients, pre-plan meals, and maintain a grocery checklist so you are stress-free come December 25th Our favourite go-to for pantry organisation products are the push-top containers. Airtight and leak-proof, they not only ensure your ingredients stay fresh, but their clear design also allows for easy identification of what's inside. Say goodbye to rummaging; with these containers from Pretty Little Designs, you get to enjoy swift access to everything you need during your festive cooking spree.

4. Organise Your Fridge 

Get rid of all the lingering items and expired foods accumulated over the year. This will give you space to store fresh, delicious ingredients for your Christmas dinner and provide adequate space for the inevitable leftovers.  Our Fridge Keepers are designed to keep your food fresher for longer, ensuring your ingredients remain at their prime. For a touch of festive functionality, our Milk Cartons are perfect for storing and pouring homemade eggnog – a Christmas favourite. Pair these with the rest of Pretty Little Designs’ fridge organisers, and every shelf in your refrigerator will radiate holiday readiness.

5. Arrange Storage for Left-Overs 

Speaking of leftovers, there's no need to embark on a Tupperware treasure hunt post-feast. Ensure you're equipped with ample storage solutions, and elevate your organisation game with our specific labels. These not only streamline your storage but also keep the chaos at bay in both your fridge and cabinets. Plus, with our brand-new product release - the Lid Organiser, you can swiftly match containers with their corresponding lids, making leftover storage a seamless task. Dive into effortless festive food preservation with ease.

6. Organise Cabinets and Drawers to Decorate

It can seem daunting but clearing your cabinets and drawers will help massively. Take out everything you have not used in over a year and prioritise seasonal decorations and themed items for a Christmassy twist. Who said cabinets couldn't join the Christmas party?

7. Build Up Your Entertainment Supplies 

Be the host with the most by pre-stocking on serving dishes, crockery,bowls, festive tablecloths, and napkins. This ensures you're always ready for impromptu gatherings and carol sing-alongs. Don’t be caught unawares; prepare ahead of time, building up a fun, festive collection of supplies you can use repeatedly. 

8. Optimise Your Clean-Up

One of the most challenging parts of Christmas celebrations is the clean-up. So, why not plan and make this part of the day as easy as possible? Be ahead of the game: keep those tea towels handy, designate festive bins for waste, and stock up on cleaning agents. Remember, the quicker the cleanup, the sooner the relaxation!

9. Organise Your Utensils

In many households, utensils seem to vanish without a trace. If you get ahead of the game and build up your supply of forks, knives, and spoons, then none of your guests will be left eating with their hands come the big day. 

10. Invest in Simple Storage Solutions
