Welcome Home: Christmas Front Door & Entry

Hi friends! How could I forget my front door for Christmas this year? Oops…kind of did that until I got the friendly email reminder saying, “get ready! Just A Girl’s Welcome Home Tour is coming!” I still had my Thanksgiving wreath on my door. Shameful. Especially when my entire home is decked out inside with five Christmas trees. No fretting here (just a tiny bit). I got busy and added some Christmas cheer to our front door just in time.

I met Chris at the Haven Conference this past summer and was super excited she invited me on this tour with some incredible bloggers. For those of you coming from Marie Flanagan Interiors, welcome!

If you tour around our home you’ll see that I dress our home like I dress myself. Black tulle on our living room Christmas tree, buffalo check pillows in just about every room (here & here), and leopard print in our family room, and all of our gift wrap. Your home should reflect your personality and match your style!

Before we go inside, let’s have a look at our front porch (ahem…front door).

Our wreath has a funny little story behind it. If you want a good laugh you can read about what happened when I styled it in our master bedroom {here}. The front door is a better place for it (wink).

I’m crushing on navy blue this year. I had this pretty blue ribbon left over from our holiday styled loft and thought it would pop against the door I recently painted. I combined it with glitter gold ribbon and black + white stripe ribbon for this big trio bow.

Doesn’t that wreath look real? My little Homegoods treasure.

Our little topiary trees got adorned with some jingle bell strands. I’m all about simple and easy this year. I found an old box of outdoor holiday decor in our garage attic and these bells were hidden in there.  I love when I find old goodies.

The wire basket is for the UPS man to drop our packages. I’ve done most of my Christmas shopping online this year and have not missed the shopping crowds one bit. I borrowed a few gifts that were already wrapped under our tree just to make it look cute for photos.

Our new rug peeking through. Rather than buy a holiday rug, I opted for this one to keep out after Christmas.

Brrr! It’s really cold outside so let’s step on in.

The first room you see in our front entry is our piano room.

My little sidekick, Gucci is always the greeter. He (yes, he) wears bows, and tutus. He wants me to clarify he’s a boy, but I really pretend he’s a girl and play dress up. Hey, I have 3 boys already. I needed a girl fix.

We’ve been busy wrapping presents in here.

Just beyond our piano room you can see straight into our living room (see more of it here).

A glimpse of the Christmas tree with black tulle. Matchy matchy with my skirt!

Thank you for stopping by! Gucci and I had fun giving you a little tour. I tried one last photo with him but he wasn’t having it…haha!

  1. LOVE that wreath! Real-looking fake things are my jam! They look great and you don’t have to re-buy them every year! Your home looks so great for Christmas.
