Christmas Decorating In The Foyer

I don't need to tell you that Christmas is a little over a week away...
Are you ready?
I still have so much to do and will hopefully get it most of it finished by this weekend.

At least my foyer is ready to welcome guests!!! I think this is the best the foyer has ever looked. It's a really large space and until recently, it has been pretty much empty and ignored.
The front door used to be  white and I painted it black a few months ago.



Greenery from our large Leyland cypress trees were added to the shelf above the front door. I will have to find another source next year as we are having these trees removed so we can have a larger vegetable garden in the Spring.

I love glass ornaments. The Santa and Snow White are Christopher Radko. Snow White and Winnie the Pooh are part of my daughter's collection that we've given her over the years.


This snowman is my favorite Christmas decoration and I'm not sure why. I just have to smile whenever I look at him.


So glad you stopped by when I know you  are so busy!

Hope you have a great day and get a lot of things crossed off your list!!!

  14. The black door is very commanding and takes center stage. The Radko ornaments are so pretty. I am in fairly good shape for Christmas, just cooking brunch on that morning for six people. That will be easy and will clean a bit this weekend. I am trying to relax and enjoy our daughter being home.

  17. You have a beautiful entry! I love the wood floors and the black door. Such a good idea to put lights in the birdcage. I'll have to remember that.
