I love the way fresh cut greenery can add so much warmth to a front entry! The dark blue/green of the fir looks especially nice with the beautiful wood front door. The holly berries add a pop of color and the leaves add nice texture. I used tall twigs in the center and spray painted them gold for some added height and drama.
I used pine roping on the mailbox post and then wired in fresh holly branches and gold berries for color and texture.
I also wanted to share some pictures of the beautiful stockings that my husbands grandmother knits for all her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and all spouses. We've had ours for a few years now but I don't think I've ever shared a picture. I was able to choose which stocking I wanted from a pattern book that she has and I knew right away when I saw the beautiful stiching, white yarn, and ruffled top on this stocking that it would be the one! I look forward to hanging them every year and I even had my husband build me a faux fireplace so I would have somewhere to display them!
