Episode 115: Winter Foyer

Can you believe it is almost December?  I know so many of you have already finished decorating your house, but we are always traveling for Thanksgiving.  So, I always seem to be lagging behind everyone else.

BUT, I got my foyer done!  Take a look:

This is a totally different look for me...a winterscape!  The two trees also came from Hobby Lobby.  I've had them for years.  I wanted a really BIG tree for the foyer but simply could not justify the cost this year!  All the ornaments came from Hobby Lobby (half off of course).  I used shredded cotton balls for the "snow".  The sled is a family heirloom that three generations of my family have used.  Very sentimental to me.  I LOVE using it in my decor!

So what do I hope that you take away from this?

  1. Try a new color scheme.  I was really uneasy about decorating with white, but I like how it turned out.
  2. Try re-purposing trees that you already have, even if they aren't the right size.  Elevate your trees.  Get creative with a stand.  And GROUP your trees for impact!
  3. Work your sales at the craft stores!  The small icicles were only $0.25 a piece!
  4. Try using what you have. The cotton ball turned snow experiment worked!  And cotton balls are cheap!

  1. I love it! Can't wait to start mine. Only problem is with a 16 month old he grabs everything that he sees! But I will figure something out :-)
    I would love to do the deco mesh on the stairs but don't know how. Will continue to review your blog, it should be here somewhere :-)
    Thanks for all the tips

  2. Hi Angela! Your blog is so cute and I just love your foyer.

    I'm having a, "It's a Social Hop like Crazy" party. I'd love for you to hop on over, grab a button and link up your blog.
