We’ve added simple touches to create a timeless Christmas foyer this year. Just a little greenery, candles and vintage glass ornaments is all it takes for a simple, yet festive home this holiday season!
Hello friends! I’m sharing my first Christmas home tour of the year today. I always get so excited to share the first tour each year. If you’re coming from 11 Magnolia Lane, welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. Christy has such beautiful homes. I’m so thrilled to be sharing along side of them!
Let’s kick off the tours with our foyer. Each year I keep things fairly similar, however, this year I decided to go with a faux garland for the bannister. I’m usually a strictly real garland kind of person, but after finding this very realistic garland at The Cotton Mill Exchange, I decided to change things up a bit.
Adding garland to our bannister is something I look forward to each year. It makes our foyer extra special. I secure the garland with clear zip ties and added three bows made from fringed velvet ribbon. Each year I like to change the ribbon and color to keep things interesting. This navy ribbon is from Hobby Lobby’s sewing department.
Mercury glass ornament garland and faux blueberry stems add some color and shine to the garland. I love the thick, layered look when using greenery.
We try to stick to simple, natural elements when decorating. I like our home to be festive but to be free of clutter. A couple greenery stems and ribbon makes for the perfect touch above our coat hooks.
Vintage glass ornaments make for simple, inexpensive decor. Adding just a few to a small plate or bowl gives a room a little magic.
Small tea light candles, tucked between the spindles on each step, add a sweet glow in the evenings to our staircase. Although, I love the glow of real candles, we usually use battery operated ones for this.
With just some garland, glass ornaments, candles and greenery, our foyer is transformed into a festive and magical space. I love that you don’t need tons of over the top decor to get your home Christmas ready. Simple truly is the best!
I hope you’ll stop by tomorrow to tour our living room and den. Be sure to hop over to The Pink Clutch Blog to check out Paige’s beautiful home all decorated for Christmas. Have a great week and happy decorating, friends!
