Christmas Foyer 2013

12.17.2013

I guess I should have started with the foyer when I started sharing my Christmas decor, since it is the first thing you see when you come in, but I was hoping my new buffet from France would be here to decorate, but that didn't happen. It is finally in port, but Customs is holding it for a vacis exam. Yep, just our luck. Shirley of Housepitality Designs and I are sharing the container and we now have more fees and the cost of this exam yet to pay. We will be so glad to finally have our stuff from our September trip. I am sure in the end it will all be worth the wait.

Anywho today I am sharing the foyer in it's Christmas finery which is just some greenery, pine cones and woodland critters to keep with the theme this year.

Again using mostly what I already owned except for the deer.

Isn't it cute? I saw it at the Pottery Barn outlet and it was marked down so in my cart it jumped. Yes, they have carts at the outlet. :)

I tied the Christmas ribbon around its neck.

 I pulled this green basket out of my, ahem, hoarding room, and filled it with greenery and pine cones.

This is the same wreath I used last year, but I dressed it up with a red plaid bow and a clip on cardinal.

My favorite look is in  the evening with the lamp on.

Be sure to come back tonight for Wow Us Wednesdays.

See you there!

  7. Your entry looks wonderful, Kim. I'm sure you are disappointed that your French piece didn't make it in time for the holidays, but maybe you can bring in the New Year with it. :)

  9. Your home is beautiful. I would love to know where you got the long leaf pine needle wreath, it makes me terribly homesick but I would love to have one!

  14. Another beautiful post, Kim! I so enjoy your creativity, focus and generosity of spirit (I recently emailed you about the fabric you used on the entry table, you responded within hours) May you have the very best and most Merry Christmas! Thank you for your commitment and sharing your hard work with all of us. It is such a joyful blog.

  16. Your foyer is lovely, Kim. I can't believe how long it takes to get things from overseas. Oh- well, it will be a real treat when it does come. I like things at night with lights on, too-I have a lamp similar to the one in your foyer- xo Diana

  25. Too bad your buffet didn't arrive in time for Christmas, but your foyer does look fabulous. I think you are definitely in a "deer" mood, and he looks perfect on your current buffet. All the natural decor is just so pretty. I wish there was a PB outlet near me...although that could be dangerous!
