What do holiday front doors say about you?
Does your door say you are festive?
Or full of joy?
No matter your personality or decorating style or front door decor....it should always say....
This front door is classic and elegant. The simplicity of a monochromatic color scheme is calm and comforting.
Create this look by adding silver balls and lanterns filled with candles.
Then order up a little extra snow on your Christmas topiaries for the perfect holiday entrance.
Here's a front door that is full of joy.
Simple sticks are decorated with ornaments and snowflakes and icicles and greenery.
Create your own joyful front door by adding lights to wreaths and sculptured topiaries.
And don't forget a reindeer mat at the front door for guests to wipe off their snowy feet.
For a more rustic front door....wrap brown paper packages tied up with strings.
Line the walk way with different sizes of black lanterns and candles.
Add lighted grapevine trees and an indoor/outdoor rug for color and warmth.
Finish off the entrance with garlands and wreaths strung with ornaments and festive cheer.
My front door is all decked out for the holidays with magnolia and fresh greens and cedar trees full of silver ornaments.
This door is not really classic or elegant or fancy.
But it is full of welcome and joy.
So if you happen to be in Tennessee and want to visit my holiday front door.....just turn right....drive by two cornfields and 27 cows and a snowy horse barn.
I'll save a cup of hot chocolate just for you!
