Front Door Christmas Decor

Last year I purchased this flocked garland from Pier 1 and I added some flocked picks and pine picks to a wreath I had made a couple of years ago. I did not add any color, keeping it neutral. It was boring, so as my mother suggested, this year I added color. I found some red berry picks and red velvet ribbon. I had planned to drape two strands of the red ribbon on the garland but it was too wide, so I just tied a strand on each side. I also had two little black planters with mini Christmas trees beside the door last year but I decided the planters were too small. I thought about bringing out my blue and white fish bowl planters and putting mini Christmas trees in them with red bows but since I have the little juniper trees right by the door, I think the garland and wreath will do.

Christmas Patio

During past holiday seasons, I purchased burlap and rustic Christmas decor to use along with my collections of pinecones, acorns, cotton stems, galvanized buckets, and magnolia stems. Last year I used my rustic Christmas decor on the back patio. But this year, with all my black and cream decor, I just added a few touches of Christmas. I found a cute doormat to layer over the tan woven rug at Pier 1 last year. I found this cute sign at Kirklands this year. It matches the pillow cover I used in the rocking chair. I hung the magnolia wreath on the garage door. I also found a cute Christmas garden flag last year on Amazon. I will be decorating the front of the house next. I am adding red ribbon and red berry picks to everything since last year the front looked a little plain. SHOP THIS POST

Christmas Foyer

The foyer houses a few antique-store-finds and hand-me-downs. I found the old potato basket and wood folding chair at antique stores in North Dakota. The table belonged to my grandmother and my mom bought the rug for me almost ten years ago from Lowe’s, which I think I am eventually going to replace with this cream/dark grey rug. The jute twine Christmas trees came from the bargain section at Target and could easily be made with styrofoam or paper mache cones, a glue gun, and some twine.
