Mad for Plaid Christmas Entry
We’re excited to kick off our holiday home tour with our Mad for Plaid Christmas Entry along with some of our favorite bloggers. A big thank you to our friends, 2 Bees in a Pod, for hosting this Come Home for Christmas series.
It’s good to be back with you guys after enjoying a long holiday break with our families over Thanksgiving. I hope you guys had fun celebrating too. If you’re new here, welcome, we’re so glad you’re here!
Our home is an open concept home so we almost always pick one color palette each season and repeat it throughout the entire house. This year, I happened upon this black, white and red plaid at Joann Fabrics one day while out shopping for clients and totally fell in love with it. I’ll share how we used this fabric in other areas of the house as we go through the week but today I want to share with you how we used this plaid to decorate for Christmas in the entry.
This fabric is pretty soft so it seemed like the perfect choice for the bench seat in the entry. When this bench isn’t piled with pillows and presents we use it to make the mornings and afternoons run as smoothly as possible.
My mom found this vintage sleigh bell wreath at a yard sale a few years ago. I know! She’s always finding fun stuff. We love how the sleigh bells have aged over time so it’s one of those holiday pieces we try to use each year.
We usually have the wreath paired with a pretty bow but this year I decided to pair it with a swag from the same collection of greenery we’ve used in the adjacent dining room, living room and on the front door too.
Have you guys started shopping for presents yet? We use this gift list printable to help keep us on track with gift giving. We’ll be celebrating Christmas in multiple cities this year and some of the gifts will be shipped and others will be personally delivered.
We usually choose a few different wrapping papers and give each city a specific color or pattern which really makes packing and shipping so much easier.
We’ve been using this planter to hold seasonal flowers in our coffee bar area but it was the perfect size to hold this burlap wrapped tree we found on sale at Michaels. These mini poinsettias are super cute to include in gift baskets for teachers and neighbors. They were around $3 each. It was SO hard not to put fresh greenery all over the house this year but since we’ll be traveling for the holidays we decided to embrace a mix of fresh and faux.
With most of the rooms in the house already decorated, I’m hoping to get the porches finished this week. It’s always fun to hang out sipping hot chocolate relaxing at the end of a long day on our wicker couches. The hustle and bustle will be here before we know it, you guys.
I’m getting so excited about the holidays and I hope you are too!
I’ll share how we’re decorating the dining room this Christmas with you tomorrow and don’t forget to check out how these fabulous ladies are celebrating the holidays in their homes all week as well…

I love the addition of plaid to your entry! It looks so festive with all of the greenery and the little touches you have added. That jingle bell wreath? Hello! That is gorgeous. Great hopping with you Coco!
Thanks so much, Nancy! I was so exited to see the jingle bells on your front door piece too – you did such a great job styling it! Hugs, CoCo
That planter is so awesome! I’d use it all year. Your entire space is beautiful!
I appreciate it, Brittany, thank you! I found that planter at a thrift store for about $20 I think and it’s been making me happy ever since ha ha. Hope your day has been a fun one, CoCo
It is all beautiful, and my favorite is the sleighbell wreath, not to mention the greens are excellent!
Thank you! I know you love to treasure hunt too so you can definitely appreciate how exciting it was to find the sleigh bell wreath. It’s one of my favorite pieces as well! Love all the updates on the little white house and I can’t wait to see what you have in store for this blog hop. Hugs, CoCo
LOVE all of the warm touches of plaid! And that explosives box is too funny.
Thanks so much, Rachel, that explosive box is how I feel about having to make sure all the gifts get delivered on time to three different cities before Christmas morning, ha ha 🙂 Hope you’ve had the best day, CoCo
Everything looks so festive!! I love that entryway bench you have!
I appreciate it, Meg! I’ve had that whole suite of bedroom furniture since I was 2 years old! I was just too sentimental to let it all go so we’ve repurposed several of the pieces and use them around the house now including the headboard and footboard you saw in the entry. Sending you hugs, CoCo
This is such a beautiful space! I bought some of the same fabric this year. 😉 That wreath is spectacular! Swooning over here! I love all of the greenery you used too, it feels so Christmas-y!
Thanks so much, Lydi! Love your style too lady. There are so many pieces you had in your entry I would have used in a heartbeat. Everything you did looks really good! Hugs, CoCo

Girl you outdid yourself! Absolutely love all of the plaid elements in your entryway. From the pillow to the blanket to the gift wrap, it’s all beautiful. And don’t get us started on that rustic wooden box. We need that! Such a warm welcome.
I appreciate it ladies! it’s been so much fun to see how everyones creativity and holiday decorating have come to life! Thanks so much for hosting and bringing us all together. Hugs, CoCo
I adore using black at Christmas. It’s fun to create using a different color than expected. Beautiful entry.
Thank you Jeanette! This was our first year using black and it’s been fun to try out something different! Hope you’ve had a fantastic day, Coco
Your color scheme is perfection!! Love the bench and that little sleigh is so cute!! What a lovely space to come home to. Merry Christmas!??
Thanks so much, Sarah! We made the bench from my childhood headboard and footboard and the sleigh was a thrifted find for about $2.99! Hope you’ve had the best day, CoCo
Perfect as usual, CoCo! Also – that different gift wrap for different cities idea is BRILLIANT!!!! I am absolutely using that this year! Thanks. 🙂
I can’t tell you how many times we’ve used that different wrap for different cities trick over the years! It really does make packing, shipping and delivering so much easier. Sending you big hugs and thank yous for your sweet words, CoCo
Everything looks SO cozy and welcoming! LOVING all the plaid and that gorgeous entryway bench!
Thank you so much, Kristi, I really appreciate it! Hugs, CoCo
I’m always so inspired by the creative ways you bring in so many neat pieces into your decor. The love the planter you used for the mini tree, those sleight bells, and that fabric! I might need to take a trip to Joann’s to see if they have any more. Beautiful job, CoCo!
You’re making me melt, Jenny, thank you! Finding the fabric helped to set the tone for the entire house this Christmas so you should definitely see if they have it in your area. Check to see if they have a coupon before you go too. That’s what I did which made it nice because we had to buy so many yards to be able to use it all around the house. Every little bit helps, you know? Sending you big hugs and thank yous for your sweet words, CoCo
