I always enjoy decorating the shelf in our entry. It’s much deeper than our mantel which gives me a lot more options when decorating!
Lately, I’ve left my old weathered window frame up there to hang wreaths from. I change out the bow, depending on the season. Or the wreath if I have a season appropriate one.
Here is the view as you enter my house…
I didn’t realize that Elfy snuck into the picture below. That sneaky little guy!
After decorating for Christmas this year, I realized I have an issue with lanterns…apparently I love them! I counted 8 lanterns as I decorated. EIGHT! Doesn’t that seem a bit like overkill?! Maybe I need a lantern intervention. Even though it seemed like a lot, I did put all of them to use throughout my house and front porch….
The lanterns in my entry are filled with pine cones. The red bow at the top adds some needed color.
The cubbies are simple. Very similar to my mantel….fresh greens from my yard with fake berries. And a candle for a little evening glow.
And on the bench sit a small collection of Christmas pillows. One of my favorites is the belted red santa pillow…
I love how my entry ‘mantel’ turned out! Very fresh and fun. Here’s one last look…
