***Christmas Foyer 2011***

Hey! Today I want to share with you all my foyer all dressed for Christmas. These pictures aren't the greatest, it has been raining the last two days! It is a nice change though, it actually feels like winter. 

Here is the foyer table, I always have the topiary and candlestick on this table, so I added a Santa in a sleigh, reindeer,  a fleur de lis finial and two tea light holders.


Here is a better look at the Santa and the reindeer. I have had the sleigh for a few years, I bought it at Michael's. I got the reindeer at Kohl's last year and I got the Santa from Michael's this year. I just added some left over garland I had with some picks and a ornament.


Here is a close up of the Santa, I think he has the sweetest face! :) 


I added a mosaic candle and ornament candle garland to the candlestick. 



I swagged garland on the staircase. I think it turned out pretty. I ran out of this smaller gold mesh, so I added some of the red mesh I used on my tree as a bow at the top. 


Here is a close up of the garland. I just wove the mesh through the garland and secured it with one of the branches, then I added leopard print ribbon and ornaments.


Here is my other table that I have in the foyer. I added the two candlesticks with gold cross candles and ornaments tucked into the chest.


I added this reindeer tassel that I have for sale in my etsy store to the cross.


Here is a close up of the table.


I added this wreath to the mirror by hanging it on a command hook. Love those! You can see the reflection of my tree in the background.




I got this cute plate set at Kirkland's a few years ago.


I have two candle holders hanging on each side of the wall as you walk into the front living room. I added the fleur de lis tassels that are for sale in my etsy shop and a fleur de lis ball instead of a candle.


I added some garland above this picture. I hung it with a command hook also! 


Above the front door there is a ledge with a window. I felt like it needed something for Christmas, so I added some presents and garland up there. I just had some different size boxes laying around in the garage so I wrapped them with some wrapping paper to coordinate with the colors and made bows for the front. This picture isn't good its really hard to get a good picture of that space, but the garland that I added to the picture in the previous picture is the same around the presents.

Here is a close up of the present. I had to stand on the ladder to take this pic!




Well that's it for today! I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Foyer. I will be back this week with more Christmas decor.


Have a great day!

It all looks so lovely, Allyson! I used some of that same leopard print ribbon on a fall wreath & now the remainder is on my tree -- great minds, right! I bet Jackson is so excited for Christmas. Have a happy one!
