Christmas Foyer

12.07.2015

Today is the first day of the All Through The House Christmas Tour hosted by Jennifer at Town and Country Living and Barb at The Everyday Home which runs all week with a different room featured each day. You'll find all the links at the end of the post.
Today it's all about our foyers or porches.


What has snow, a sleigh, a reindeer, some bottle brush trees, a few ornaments, a lantern and a pretty wreath? My foyer decked for Christmas, that's what. Every year I like to change my Christmas decor up a bit and when I knew I was sharing my foyer in this blog hop this idea using the reindeer and sleigh that I already had popped in my head.

Of course a little plaid got tied around the reindeer's neck.



I reuse the blanket of snow each year. I just roll it up and store it in a plastic bin.

I placed a few bottle brush trees in the snow.

I usually end up hopping from one thing to the next when I'm decorating and I had these ornaments in my hand and set them down in the snow to do something else and I liked them there so I left them. I love accidental decorating.

I put the lamp away and brought out this old lantern.

It's hard to see, but I have a string of lights in the sleigh that change colors when I have them on at night.

Shot from the balcony.





Across from the chest I placed this antique Belgian bulb basket and filled it with a live tree.

I placed this pillow that I've had for some time on my antique French chair.


I hope you enjoyed the tour of my foyer.

Check out my foyer for 2014 here and 2013 here. You'll see I have a thing for deer.
