There was a time where a lady would not be without an apron. Not only did they wear one for cooking but a good hostess had an array of lovely ones for serving her guests.
My grandmother never wore an apron on the rare times that she was in the kitchen ( my grandfather was the cook). But my great grandmother had a huge collection of them. I remember when she came home from church or wherever she had been, she would take off her hat and coat, change into her everyday clothes and put on her apron. She always wore the full aprons that covered everything, almost like a backless dress.
Although I do have some aprons I don't always where one when I cook, most of the time I really should. At Christmas time though, I really do like to have a Christmas apron. There is just something nostalgic and comforting about the pretty patterns ont them, like this cute striped vintage one from MODECULAR MODERN ON ETSY.
Christmas aprons seem to be making a comeback. I found so many online like these two beauties. They are so lovely I would be happy to have either one of them to wear on Christmas.
Aprons are easy to make but also readily available online and in many stores. Why not get festive in the kitchen this Christmas and treat yourself to a pretty holiday apron.
