Welcoming Christmas Foyer

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year to all my readers.  At this busy time I am just posting a couple of photos of my foyer, decorated and ready for party guests.

The garland of fresh mixed greens was added to the planter prepared a couple of weeks ago along with large faux poinsettias and wide gold ribbon tied in simple bows to attach the poinsettias.

Last minute can be a good time to decorate as area decor stores have up to 40% off at this late date!  Alternatively, grab the pieces that go with your decor after Christmas when nurseries and decorating stores are slashing prices even more, and you will be set for next year’s decorating way ahead of time.

All the best!

    What a fantastic foyer to be able to decorate. Stunning. I’ve always had to wait for the sales, it started as a necessity, now a habit. I just bought all my gift wrap and bows yesterday for 70% off…that feels good. Cheers

    • I think that your story of having to wait for the sales and this becoming a habit applies to almost everybody. I don’t know who it is that is paying full price to these poor businesses, but it isn’t anyone I know!
      It was really timing and luck, but I think, what could be better than getting your wrap a year ahead for 70% off!
      Have a lovely Christmas.

  3. Your foyer is lovely… I have molding envy.
    Have a very, very, very Merry Christmas!

    I love that staircase. It makes me homesick for my old house, though our stairs were no where near as long as those.

  9. Breathtaking foyer! That is my dream foyer! Love the color of those walls with that white trim and the beautiful simplicity of the greens with the white poinsettias and bows. It looks so natural.

    This is such a classy way to decorate your entrance for the holidays! A lot of people tend to overdo this, but this is just perfect. I can’t wait to get a house of my own to decorate and put some personal touches both inside and out!
