Festive Holiday Entry Ideas

We’re sharing festive holiday entry ideas today!

When it comes to decorating the entry for the holidays, I’ve never shied away from saying it’s THE hardest space in the house to decorate because it rarely ever changes.

We intentionally keep it simple because our spacious front porch is always the star of the show, and we want the transition from one space to another to feel seamless.

Still, the transition is an important one and deserves a little extra effort. Especially, for the holidays.

When I first started planning our holiday home, I imagined a Candyland theme with lots of pale pinks, seafoam greens, and muted blues.

But once our travel plans changed, I decided to fully embrace one of my favorite quotes…” she leaves a little sparkle everywhere she goes…” as our holiday theme this year.

While I was up in the attic, I came across a silver tinsel tree my parents gifted me years ago and knew it would be just the right amount of sparkle for our entry area.

We mostly try to keep this area as clutter-free as possible, but I couldn’t help but place a few extra packages around the tinsel tree.

When my Mom was here helping me decorate for the holidays, she added the riding boots with a basket of greenery to help round the area out.

Greenery, ornaments, and ribbons are always a really easy way to make things feel festive and budget-friendly too.

Every season I say I’m going to replace the horse print with something else and each time I just can’t let it go.
