Christmas Entryway


  My guests will be a day late so that gave me time to get another area of my home decorated- a little:)

 This room is only used as a pass thru to the rest of the home and mainly how one gets from the front door to the  family room/breakfast room/ kitchen area..  Which is, of course, the HUB and where All  rush too..     I think often of how much a Large Family would enjoy all these rooms and all this space but thats a topic for after the holidays, that maybe I can discuss and get some opinions about from my bloggy pals..


 As I said in a former post, my plants and pretty much other decor stays where it is and I just added holiday touches in small amounts.
  I hope you like it.

  Fresh greenery swag came from Whole Foods.  I love that place~!  The smells , the sounds the food and specialty selections.  That's one of my favorite places to browse and I always seem to meet up with folks I know, especially in the vitamin and herb section ..  I was even able to get myself a few fresh mangos.. YUM

  I used white and gray beaded picks, some sheer white ribbon and flocked pinecones. Nothing fancy and just enough to be attractive without going over the top.    This year, the quieter decor suits my needs.
  I also have a sofa table in this room and the newest Reindeer from Hobby Lobby sits on it with some fresh greens.     My daughter saw this while shopping with her pals and got it for me.  This one piece sorta set the tone for this room and I love it.
 I'm playing at My Front Porch to Yours- Pam's Party

Ivy and Elephants linky party 

 do go see all the great Holiday posts for many inspirational ideas , Plus- those folks will be so tickled to get a visit from you.  I know I sure am~!

 Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to come and visit me.  It wouldnt be nearly as much fun for me if I couldnt show it to Ya'll.
Christmas Blessings to ALL of you.

Sonny, I really like that deer. It's perfect. I cut some branches from a pine and put into flower pots outside. Then added red ribbons. Cheap enough. Smiles, Susie

Sonny, your Holiday decor looks so beautiful and elegant! I love, love all your plants. Growing up in Spain, my mother and grandmother always had plants growing in the house and every time I see your pictures, you remind me of them.:) I have to say, the reindeer is gorgeous! Perfect addition!

This year the quiet, neutral look is so appealing to me...I love what you have done, it's beautiful.

Hmmm wonder if I can dismiss the denim blue walls of our hallway that we inherited from the previous owners, and get it done in the next few days....nope, not going to happen.

But I can look at your photos and dream.

I love this, Sonny, it's just perfect! I love everything about your entryway -- the table, the lamps and mirror, and all your wall art! Your Christmas touches coordinate beautifully. I love that swag, and I'm going to have to pay a visit to Whole Foods to look for one of those. :)

Have a great day.

Sonny, Your Christmas touches are stunning! I am so behind in my blogging, so I went back to your two previous posts, too! Enjoyed browsing through them! I love your reindeer tree, and collection of other reindeers ...all beautiful! And the fresh sway from Whole Foods is so pretty!

Hope you have a wonderful visit with your guests! :)

Stacey said...

Your entry way is perfect. Just perfect. :)

Suzy said...

OK - I'm officially drooling! Love, love, love all the silver and white and greenery mixed together. You're smart to keep your regular decor out and just decorate around it. I wind up having to find places to stash everything until Christmas is over.
