Christmas 2015 Entryway

Hello again!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!!

Today I have some pictures to show you of our Entryway decorated for the holidays!  

Our house has a very open floor plan so when you walk in our home through the front door, you are simultaneously in the entryway, living room, dining room,  and living room because it is literally one big room with zero walls to break it up. 

I'll start with a few pics of our sideboard by the front door, decorated with pinecones and greenery...

This year I decided to use everything we already owned in this area of the house add elements from nature that were free!  I kept seeing an endless supply of pinecones on the ground around town so I thought they'd be perfect! 

And some pictures at night...

So when you're standing in our entryway and you look to the right, you'll notice that the entry flows right into the dining room which contains our china cabinet.  If you missed the original post on how I restored our china cabinet you can read about it here.  A couple of times a year, I usually decorate this cabinet with various holiday decor.  Here are a few pics of the outside of the cabinet decorated for Christmas....

I couldn't hang our stockings on the fireplace mantle this year because a certain someone could pull them down!  So the china cabinet was the safest place...


Well that's it for today!  I'll be back soon with some more holiday decorating pics!  

Remember, when life hands you lemons, turn them into something lovely!
