    O.K. Lory! I would say that you have definitely got your porch and entry foyer decor “right”! Both areas are so beautiful! I think you just need to keep these pictures so you can do the same thing next year! Everything is “just perfect”!

    Sometimes, it takes time to get everything decorated the way we think it should be. I change a lot of my decor in our home but a lot of things remain the same because that’s the way it looks best! The first year we built our home out here by the lake and moved in the November, it was hard to get everything looking right! I ended up just packing some stuff away to use the next year!

    I have a sleigh (from my childhood) on our porch and I just love the look of it there! I have a set of sleigh bells that my Dad gave me from his childhood in the country — and I treasure these. They look so cute on the antique sleigh with the cedar sprigs and a red plaid ribbon.

    We just love Christmas and everything that goes with it!

    I have never seen a red rose wreath. Your wreaths are so pretty and look great over your sconce. Your home is absolutely beautiful! Hope you and your hubby can spend time to just relax and enjoy all the decor. We always enjoy all the twinkling lights on our tree and mantel.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us.

    1. Thank you SO much for your lovely sweet comment!! Your sleigh sounds wonderful, too! Yes, It’s nice to stay home and just appreciate everything this time of year… 🙂

    I also think your little porch looks just perfect. I know from experience how difficult a small space can be to decorate without doing too much or too little. You nailed it with by dividing it up into zones. I wish I had kept my Flexible flyer sled but somehow it vanished. Love your use of bells. I will start serious Christmas decorating next week after I recover from Thanksgiving and have the energy to pack up all my autumn decor and clean before the switch over.

    I think your ideas and spacing are spot on. If you wouldn’t mind one suggestion? Since you are using flocked trees (which I love!) you might want to do a bit of flocking on the wreath and sled greens to tie all the greens together. And maybe stick a few greens or a few bells on the bench between the plaids. I’m going to def keep following you!🎄🎄
