How To Style A Kitchen Hutch

Do you need inspiration for styling your china cabinet?

I have some easy step by step ideas on how to decorate your kitchen hutch or china cabinet with layers that add uniqueness and interest.

I like to do a refresh seasonally on my china cabinet using things I already have.

It works best for me to remove everything from the hutch and start fresh.

Typically, I will start by pulling out some things I know I want to incorporate for that season.

I take one shelf at a time and get the basic arrangement that I like.

When I am done with all of the shelves, I like to go back and add layers of things to add interest.

For example, during the fall, I might add a few white mini pumpkins and a small wheat wreath.

And for the Spring and Easter season, I like to add my favorite faux white tulips and a few Easter eggs or bunnies.
