Christmas Decor

Today our Home For The Holidays Linky Party is continuing.
Link up at the end of the post and show us what you’ve been doing!
 
Today I’m sharing my foyer decor.
Hopefully soon, I’ll have enough pictures to give you a little tour of our Christmas home.
I have to wait until the oldest gets home from boot camp tomorrow 
and decorates the tree first!
 
Welcome to our home….
Let’s go inside!
Looking through the arched doorway to the living room
I love lots of greenery at Christmas.
I get all of it free anywhere they cut Christmas trees. 
The leftover branches are always given away. 
Most of this greenery came from Home Depot.
I like to mix real and faux so I get the nice scent!
This arrangement started with a faux ball of greenery that was pretty faded. 
I added a faux garland wrapped around the original ball to make it really full. Then I added real greens and dried bittersweet branches!
More fresh greens stuffed on top of the secretary.
Even the little iron deer with the broken ear ($5 at Home Goods) 
gets some fresh greens!
I wrapped another garland around and around the banister to match the urn. 
I let garland hang down and added icicle lights. 
More faux garland goes up the railing.
I took a picture from upstairs….my favorite view of the foyer!
At the bottom of the stairs is a bench.
Tucking fresh greens over pictures and mirrors is something I love to do. 
It’s simple, fresh and very pretty.
Looking from the living room into the foyer.
 
Thanks for visiting! 
Hope you enjoyed seeing how I decorate for Christmas!
 
Make sure to link up YOUR pretty decor!!


See you at the party!!!

  13. Beautiful, Lorraine! I think I’m going to try mixing fresh with faux next year. I’m in love with your floor! I’ve always wanted a black and white floor like yours.

  16. Hello,
    I visited your blog today – I saw you on sweet Celestina’s blog. I have always loved this black and white flooring, it is stunning. While I see so many houses out there that are adorned with white furniture, it is so nice to see the traditional dark wood here. What a lovely blog you have, and your name is so unique. Me and my daughters also have a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you, and getting some decorating ideas in the coming year. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
