Deck the Foyer

Today, I am featuring my foyer….

…..although you will only see one side of it as the large tree is not up yet.

This year, I tried to incorporate a lighter color palette…

…..rather than the traditional red and green that I used the foyer in previous years.

How can I describe the “theme”…maybe a Southern Woodland Theme…

…..is there such a theme…did I just make that up?

This owl was on my mantel last year…

This year he is comfortably perched on a bed of cotton atop a candlestick…

…..and his friend perched below.

I have added my cotton to lend to the “Southern feel”….

I had won a Christmas decorating contest last year and received some beautiful ribbon…

…..resembling birch bark.

I decided to wrap packages with this beautiful ribbon…

…..and use cotton to make “bows”

Great idea if I say so myself!!! 🙂

I wrapped more packages with craft paper and the birch bark ribbon…

…..and placed them in a basket under the table.
