I think this foyer arrangement is just beautiful. I found your blog a few days ago and must say I adore it. I look forward to borrowing inspiration from you. I had a lot of fall decor to get put away myself and now find my house in shreds:-(. Need to keep reminding myself in a few days it will be lovely...Thanks for the Christmas inspiration! I love tinsel trees too!



I am loving that foyer arrangement, especially the pheasant feathers.


well , that decoration reminded me of what we saw this year at the historical socities (sp?????) house. They used a lot of those feathers in their decorations....even on their trees.


Looks so gorgeous and green!!! Can't wait to see more pics:) You have such a talent for detail. Love it!


Looks beautiful so far Allison.
I have a silver tree like yours.
Can't wait to see more.

I love the silver tree. Have a blessed night. Mary


Cute display in your entry way. I love the riding hats. I started my decorating this weekend to, but just made a dent! I too had lots of fall to put away and I feel a little overwhelmed with it all, but will love it when it comes together. I can't wait to see more pix of your house!

Love the tree in the ice bucket. I have an ice bucket exactly like that. Great idea. Nice job arranging it too. When I see horses, riding gear, etc., I think of plaids. I would put plaid bows in that tree. . . maybe because I'm English and Scottish?




LOVE that arrangement in the foyer! You did a great job! Can't wait to see your tree!


Everything looks great!!! I can't wait to see more of your decorations! :)



Soooo pretty!

Can't wait to see more!


Ooh I am loving the trees! You have the perfect "eye" for putting unique and complementary combinations together. Glad you had a good holiday!!


I love it, nice and natural! can't wait to see your tree! it sounds like the kind of tree I would want...not perfectly shaped, like you just chopped it down, you can't find trees like that at tree lots...believe me I have looked.


Such holiday cheer in your post and photos! I'm trying to get things put up in our house - so far I think I managed to put up one decoration! Ah, well! Can't wait to hear/see more about this mysterious tree.


Oh what pretty decorations -- I love your foyer table! Waiting with bated breath for more about the tree. :)


Hi Allison,
What a lovely natural arrangement.... The little robin looks so at home! I am slowly gathering my decorations together too, I look forward to seeing your other christmas decorations,

I love that arrangement Allie and can't wait to see your special tree! Note on my post today that I want my ice bucket to look tarnished and dark like in your photo!!

Hope to get some decorations up this week - time is going by too fast.

I love your floral arrangement!
It would look equally nice during the month of January or even November with some fall leaves tossed into the mix.

I found a star just like yours at the thrift store, today for 50 cents. I had no idea that it had come from Bayberry Cove, although it still did have the tag attached. I couldn't imagine someone giving it away.

Your decorations are so cute and I LOVE your entryway! That stair case is just lovely!

Oh I love your arrangement in the foyer Allison!! What a good idea! And your little silver tree and star is wonderful!!! Bet Evy loves hers too! By the way your comment about the tree being a free spirit really made me laugh!!x

I can't wait to see the rest. Great job so far!


Such a great elegant look! Grand idea! Lori

What a beautiful arrangement Allie! What a perfect welcome into your home during the holidays! I hope that you & your family are enjoying the preparations.

Allison- It looks great. I just gave my old riding hat to my niece! I should have sent it to you!
