Welcome to our home this Christmas! I love to create a welcoming entry, especially at Christmas time. And our home present special challenges in the entry, because it is a split level home. If you are a regular around here, I have mentioned many times how I have struggled with creating an inviting entry because of the split level. I have tried to make the most of this space. And I love the way it looks this Christmas, so take off your shoes, and come on in! I’ll try to keep the words to a minimum, and just let you enjoy the pictures. This is the wreath that has hung on our front door for quite a few years now. I think next year it will be time for something new. But I do love the Deer wreath hanger!
View from the top of the stairs.
The opening you see decorated with lights leads to our living room.
I wrapped white lights halfway up each spindle, I usually go all the way up, but wanted something a little different this year.
I bought the ribbon I used on the banister at Marshalls. I mixed white lights in with a simple garland, and then I used some jingle bells that I have had for years, and just tied a few simple bows.
Love this ribbon, and wish I had bought a few rolls.
I hung a red berry wreath right at the top of the railing, and adorned it with the same simple bow and a red ornament.
You might remember the DIY Coat Rack that I made back in November. This thing is getting it’s fair share of heavy use, trust me!
The snowmen are staples around here at Christmas time.
I usually put flowers in this hanging bucket. This year, I draped a red scarf in it instead. Easy peasy! I should Change up my chalkboard art to something more Christmas-y. Laziness I guess…
And this is our beloved shoe cabinet that we wonder how we ever lived without.
In the frame is a Christmas card we received last year. Such cute little Christmas people!
The little mason jar has a string of LED lights in it. Unfortunately the batteries were dead when I took this picture, but have since been changed.
I still have a few places around my home that I have not shown you yet, so stay tuned, I hope to bring you more Christmas cheer very soon! Have a wonderful week!
Check out my what else is going on around Sweet Parrish Place this year fro Christmas!
