I hope you all are enjoying December so far…and that it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in your homes! Today, I’m welcoming you to our casual and simple Christmas foyer. Everything is very understated, and I used a mixture of faux and real greens. The Norfolk pine garland I purchased in July is the star of the show. It definitely looks real, and has short plastic needles. It drapes beautifully, and all it needed was a string of white lights to finish the look.

I wanted this year’s Christmas foyer decor to be extremely simple…almost minimalist. I filled my market basket with fresh Port Orford cedar branches, just so I could breathe in the scent of pine when I walked through, which I do multiple times a day. If you’re wondering, I moved the market basket to the corner after these pictures were taken, so it wouldn’t be in the way!

The only other foyer Christmas decor I included this year is an arrangement that I put together in my thrift store tureen. I mixed real and faux greens, added red berries, and placed the tureen on a round basket.

I picked up the fresh greens and berries at my grocery store, and simply placed them in the tureen with some water. I surrounded the tureen with shatter-proof red ball ornaments in various sizes. I purchased the red ornaments several years ago, and they make an appearance in our Christmas decor every year. They have moved from room to room, and they add that lovely and festive pop of red.

Sometimes, I am guilty of over-thinking things. I so want to give you all good ideas that are simple to do, so I take great care when I’m sharing inspiration. I couldn’t get this arrangement just right at first, and honestly, I got very frustrated. So I did what I always do. I walked away for a while, and then came back with fresh eyes. I had started out with a pitcher, and it just wasn’t working. The minute I switched to the tureen, everything fell together. All of this to say that when a decor project isn’t working, don’t give up. Walk away for a while, and when you come back, the tiniest little change or adjustment will make all the difference.

We’ve had our first snow, I can see Christmas lights outside my window, and I’m getting ready to begin my baking. I am trying very hard to keep some semblance of normalcy, and prepare for Christmas like I have done in the past. COVID or not, I am doing my very best to savor the season. I hope you will do the same. Until next time…
