Christmas Foyer

Hello everyone, today I’m sharing our Christmas foyer. It’s surprising but none of our friends or family come to our front door. Truth be told, we use our front door for UPS and Fed Ex deliveries.

No one may enter our home through the front door but that doesn’t mean it gets neglected.

For example, you may enjoy this post to read and see the huge transformation I gave this Bombay chest.  It’s truly amazing.

This is our foyer as you enter the front door.

I also made the French Trumeau mirror from thrift store finds and plywood.  It’s another great project that may inspire.

By the way, the sconces you see the transformation of these thrifted sconces in this post.  It’s also a simple technique that may interest you for a piece in your home.

Let’s get back to the Christmas foyer, shall we? I tend to keep the Christmas foyer simple. As an example, I enjoy this simple classic Cedar wreath hanging with a blue check ribbon.

The Bombay’s chest has an ornate terrarium I received as a gift and is filled with flocked boxwood garland.

The battery operated flameless candles are beautiful in the evenings and they have timers.  During this time of year, candles are perfect for warmth and a touch of romance.

A crown and antique books add some texture, color, and interest.

These large candleholders are a staple in the foyer. A moss ball and an ornament that holds a special place in my heart look pretty.

Lastly, our smaller German twig tree is placed inside a Mercury glass urn for added height. It also adds a touch of French elegance.

The tree is filled with German and Polish ornaments collected over the years. You may notice A Reeses and Peanut towards the bottom of the tree representing our fur babies.

I hope you enjoyed our Christmas simple foyer. I would love to know in the comments. Also, follow me on Pinterest and Instagram to see DIY crafts, decorating ideas, and painting projects so you don’t miss a thing.

  1. I giggled reading your comment about people not entering through your front door. The same is true here but the front door still has wreaths which at least can be seen from the street.

  2. so beautiful, love the tree! Your Bombay chest is gorgeous, I’m heading back to the link to read about the transformation! Have a wonderful week, Cindy.

  3. Cindy, your foyer is just beautiful with all the pretty Christmas decor. Your bombay chest and french mirror are gorgeous! No one hardly enters through our front door either. It seems everyone always enters the house through the side door or back door. Happy Tuesday, sweet friend!
