Deck the Halls - The Foyer

The holidays are fast upon us..... like- this weekend! So here is another installment of the deck the halls series... the foyer! I had grander plans for the foyer this year, but never seemed to find the right decorations. The plan was to adorn the staircase with 3 wreaths, like this image on pinterest:



But, I never seemed to find the right wreath- I was looking for boxwoods, and for some reason- they have been hard to find this year. They are either too expensive or in the form of garland. I'm not ready to give up yet, however- I can still find some early this week in time for holiday entertaining! The search is not over! Here are some decorations that are up in our foyer:






The first two images show our bench decorated with a small tree wrapped in burlap and a bow. Also on the bench, is a large holiday book and whimsical bird. Future plans for this space include a large, oversized mirror above the bench. (Santa, do you shop at home goods???)
Leading into our living and dining rooms, there is a small table set with a winter white scene. It's not overly colorful, but I thought it was fun to let your eye take a break from all of the traditional holiday colors and set the table to remind me of snow. Also in the foyer, is a small mirror with hooks, suitable for an oversized glittery stocking and a fun, whimsical sign. The hand on the shelf is actually made out of paper mache and is supposed to be for placing jewelry, but adds a touch of whimsy to the vignette.

How about you- are you still adding last minute touches???

Love your little Christmas tree, it's adorable. We are still doing some last minute holiday decor shopping. In fact, I just got my Christmas tree today! :) Talk about last minute work!

I just love your wallpaper. I didn't do a lot of decorating this year. I just put wreaths on all the lights in the front of the house and a small tree on a table and some lighted branches that I bought this year.
