Moving along with the Christmas home tour, we’re in my entryway today. Like the centerpiece from yesterday, this area isn’t much different from last year either. But if you weren’t around these parts last year you wouldn’t know that. And I highly doubt that those of you who were around last year remember how I decorated my entryway. Mad props if you do remember.
For the past couple years, I’ve put the ceramic Christmas tree on our entryway table. It’s white and blue so the decor revolves around it. Like last year, I went with a white, silver, and blue theme. A sparkly silver placement (Kohls, circa a few years ago) sits under a silver heart shaped bowl (Target, circa more than a few years ago). The heart shaped bowl is filled with miniature silver and blue ornaments and three candles. I slapped some blue ornaments (Walmart, circa a few years ago) in the pedastal container, and I hung silver and clear snowflake ornaments on the mirror. This entire vignette took me about 5-10 minutes to set up. Probably because it’s the fraternal twin of last year’s vignette.
I love the crap out of this tree. My late Aunt Patricia made a tree for both my brother and I when we were little. My mom used to put them in our bedrooms at Christmastime. It’s one of my most treasured possessions. I can’t wait to put it in our future kid’s room.
Opposite the entryway table is this little nook that houses our coat closet and some empty space. This is where I always put our sentimental Christmas tree. It’s a little 4 footer that I use to display all of our personal ornaments. I also hang a wreath on the closet door.
Brad’s grandparents made this beautiful wreath back in their craft business days. The wreath’s sibling is on our front door.
You’ll find ornaments dedicated to Jack, IU themed ornaments, ornaments we picked up while vacationing, “Brad and Chelsea” ornaments, and some other random ornaments on our sentimental tree.
My favorite ornament has to be this ‘just married’ ornament I ordered from Lenox last year. I still need to find a 2012 ornament. Note to self.
