Entryway Christmas decor inspiration to help you decorate your home this holiday season.
This is our first Christmas in our new home and even though this will be our 8th married Christmas together it almost feels like our first.
Between 4 Christmas’s during dental school, 2 during home renovations/house selling, and our last one in which we were living in a 1 bedroom apartment above my parent’s garage (while we finished building our home), we didn’t have a lot of Christmas decor to decorate our new home.
Roger sweetly gave me a Christmas decorating budget so that I could fill our home with a little bit of the Christmas cheer that we’ve had year after year in our hearts.
I tried to evenly spread the budget between 3 areas in our house, our kitchen, the living room and family room, and our 2 entryways.
If you are subscribed to my bi-weekly newsletter (if you aren’t – and would like to be – you can do so at the bottom of this post) then you know that originally I had planned to share our kitchen Christmas decor last week.
But I ran into a shipping snag and needed to rearrange my posting schedule.
This means I may be sharing 5 new posts next week!
Well, if everything goes according to plan…
But as for right now, I am really excited to share with you how I decorated our foyer entry and our mudroom entry.
I am keeping things a bit minimalist this year and while I love how it turned out, I am looking forward to adding to our Christmas decor in the years to come.
Little by little, with items we love and cherish!
And if I’m completely honest, I did use part of my Christmas budget for this beautiful beige settee.
But at the last minute, I decided to purchase something that could be enjoyed and used year-round next to the staircase.
And I’m so happy I did!
At first, Roger wondered who would ever sit under our stairs.
Then he decided it was a great idea to use the money for something that would be used year-round.
And after it arrived and we had put it together we were both really happy that we would have more seating for family gatherings!
And while I liked the Christmas garland, I ended up returning it and purchasing this garland because it came with twice as many lights and was a couple of dollars less expensive.
I ended up also returning the eucalyptus garland and opting to order these eucalyptus stems.
The eucalyptus garland was pretty, but the vine had more of a light green plastic appearance than I was looking for.
Plus the eucalyptus stems were less expensive, looked more realistic, and I had more control of where and how I placed them on the garland!
I then went into our woods and cut some stems of 2 different types of evergreen to add throughout the garland.
Layering fresh and faux pieces is definitely key to a fuller and more beautiful garland!
And while the DIY for this isn’t live yet, I do plan on sharing it next week and will be sure to update this post with a link as soon as it’s live. Here is the link to the easy DIY Neutral Wreath!
When I shared a sneak peek of this area mid-decorating early this week on LIKEtoKNOWit I had our little fiddle leaf fig tree sitting in the corner.
While I was cutting some fresh stems for the garland, I found this beautiful evergreen that I thought would look perfect next to the couch.
I placed it in a basket my sister gifted me last Christmas (you can find similar ones here) and found that it was just the right height for this area.
And as for our little mushroom entryway, I kept things extra simple and fresh.
And I tied the evergreen look together by adding some fresh evergreen stems to a metal bucket at the base of the bench. (I couldn’t find this particular metal bucket online, but here is one that is similar but even prettier!)
Since this is an area in our house that gets dumped with random things as we go in and out of the house I didn’t want to overload it with too many decor items.
And honestly, I love the simplicity of this entry.
Now that our entryways are festive and cheery for Christmas it’s time that I finish up our kitchen Christmas decor!
I hope these Christmas entryways inspire you as you begin decorating your home for the Christmas season!
