Kicking off the holiday house tour with our simple Christmas entryway. Every year I try to use what I have and add a few more festive touches without feeling too busy or overwhelming. I shared a few of my plans in my simple Christmas styling guide and I surprisingly stuck to them. I’ll be sharing more areas of the house in the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned!

I added garland to our coat rack and hung vintage-inspired bells. The garland is from Grandin Road and no longer available but this one is similar. It is folded in half and secured together with green floral wire. I love that it has lights already incorporated. I have them set on a timer to come on every night.
Our front door is red which is always perfect for the Christmas season, even if I do hate it during the rest of the year. It looks the same as in previous years, but I added a new wreath from Crate and Barrel. I’m hoping to start working on our exterior next year. I have big plans for it and some new paint colors.
On our entry table, I added my record player for easy access to my favorite Christmas albums. The great thing about this record player is it also has Bluetooth. So, even if I don’t have the record I can still play Christmas classics and new versions with a music app on my phone.
I also added a mini pine tree with a concrete base to complement the faux cement lamp that I DIYed earlier this year. I found these wood houses in the Target Dollar Spot this year and I love the warmth they bring to this little vignette.
Starting into the living room, I added a few Christmas touches to the built-ins with little faux trees and my favorite white ceramic houses. This year, I’m using battery operated tea lights with a remote to turn on all my houses at once. It’s so much easier and instantly makes our home feel so cozy.
Our simple Christmas entryway is just the start of the holiday house tour. And I can’t wait to share the rest of our home over the next couple of weeks! The holidays are definitely different this year. But we aren’t letting it stop us from enjoying our home and making new traditions.
