Christmas Entry and Banister

I love to create a welcoming entry, especially at Christmas time. And our home present special challenges in the entry, because it is a split level home. If you are a regular around here, I have mentioned many times how I have struggled with creating an inviting entry because of the split level. I have tried to make the most of this space. And I love the way it looks this Christmas, so take off your shoes, and come on in!
I bought the ribbon I used on the banister at Marshalls. I mixed white lights in with a simple garland, and then I used some jingle bells that I have had for years, and just tied a few simple bows.
I wanted our guests to enter our home and immediately feel in the Christmas spirit.
This is the wreath that has hung on our front door for quite a few years now. I think next year it will be time for something new. But I do love the Deer wreath hanger!
The opening you see decorated with lights leads to our living room. I wrapped white lights halfway up each spindle, I usually go all the way up, but wanted something a little different this year.
