A few additions

Well I wasn't feeling like my entry was complete for Christmas so I went ahead and added live garland to my staircase. It's  mixed greens which I like for the added fullness and I just added a simple bow using my favorite ribbon. I also used this ribbon to tie the garland to the rail.
 Much better!
Another change I made was to the table in my breakfast room...remember the before...
 and now the after...much more festive!
      Just a little more Christmas cheer mainly using things I already had!
              Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Love how you decked your entryway for the holidays...love the subtle colors with touches of holiday accents:) That pretty ribbon is my favorite as well, complements the garland so charmingly! The tabletop vignette with the wicker tray and pine cone candle brings wonderful holiday cheer to your entry! Merry Christmas! Hugs, Poppy

I like the railing. I keep trying stuff on ours but it seems to just get in the way. Tight space at the bottom of our stairs. Lovely home decor, Martina.

That's pretty, Martina. I am waiting on my greenery to be delivered.
