This is the first year we added a Christmas tree to our foyer.
Come on in and take a look!
I have had this artificial tree in our basement for years. We always get a real tree for Christmas so this was the extra tree for those years I wanted two. (I only put it up one or two other years!)
At first, I envisioned the tree in our dining room but after my son and I started unpacking the tree, the foyer seemed like a better place. After all, we changed all the flooring to hardwood this year and we also updated our stairs. What better way to celebrate than with a Christmas Tree!
I kept the decorations simple with burlap ribbon and red ornaments. I love the way the burlap looks with my new stair runner.
I just used a tablecloth for the tree skirt. It was looking a little sloppy here…
I love how the whole foyer glows in the evening now.
It just says ‘welcome’ to me!
It should feel extra festive when the boys descend these stairs on Christmas morning…
And here is the view into my living room where the real tree stands. As you can see, we always use colored lights on that tree…traditions…
The white lights on this tree tie in with the banister better.
And I kept the mirror on the wall behind the tree. I love how the lights reflect in it. Like I mentioned, this is the first year we have put a tree in the foyer. Normally this space looks like THIS or THIS at Christmas.
I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Foyer!
I know this added so much more to my Christmas clean-up list
but I do think it was worth it!
Do you have more than one tree?
