A Merry and Bright Christmas Foyer

Good morning, dear friends! I hope that this first week of December finds you healthy and joyous during this holiday season. Today, I want to invite you in out the cold for a look around my merry and bright Christmas foyer.

The French Estanier cabinet is dressed in Christmas greens, red berries, pinecones, and pretty ribbon. It’s a simple way to add a festive holiday touch.

To the side of cabinet, I decorated a smaller tree with special keepsake ornaments.

The Santa and Mrs. Clause was always prominently displayed on my grandparent’s tree.

Garland with red plaid bows drapes the stair railing.

A bouquet of faux Christmas blooms and stems creates a simple arrangement. Being extra cautious, I haven’t been anywhere to buy real flowers. Therefore, I chose to use faux blooms that I had on hand.

I love this glittery Santa that I bought several years ago.

I hope you enjoyed the tour this morning. Thank you for your visits and sweet comments. Next week, I will be back to share my living room and main Christmas tree. Have a wonderful weekend!
