The Christmas decorating has begun and what better place to start than in the first area of my home when you enter. The foyer should give you an idea of what's to come in the rest of the home. This year I'm still keeping the decor simple and I'm sort of going with a winter woodland theme with lots of greenery, pine cones, woodland animals and even a bit of snow.
I was sent these CAKE STANDS from Decor Steals to share a creative way of using them. I am joining two other bloggers, with links below, who are sharing their ideas, too. Be sure not to miss those plus a link to a giveaway.
After the box arrived I thought hmmmm, how can I use these in my Christmas decor? Then some thoughts popped in my head and I started removing everything from the top of this chest except for the lamp. I like to keep that there so it can be on at night.
I had already planned on using this deer on the chest, but wasn't sure what else I was doing so the cake stands were just what I needed.
I opened up the doors on the bottom of this chest where I store things and pulled out the greenery and just started tucking it on each stand and under the deer.
On the top I added this twig wreath/candle ring and grabbed my birch candle from the dining room table.
I tucked three votive candles among the greenery under the deer.
The votives are actually little glass yogurt jars from my trip to France last year. I just poured some salt in them and tucked in a votive candle.
This is all placed on one of my vintage grain sacks, but a blanket of snow would look nice, too. Two large pine cones from my stash and an antler shed finish out the vignette.
So that is my Christmas winter woodland vignette in the foyer.
