What an exciting week! Each day I’m sharing a part of my home with you while joining friends in some really fabulous home tours and it has been so much fun to see all of the inspiration that comes from decorating for the holidays! Today I’m participating in the 2019 Holiday Tour of Homes, hosted by my friends Amy & Christy at 11 Magnolia Lane.
I was supposed to be sharing my Glam White & Gold Kitchen with you but, because of a really long story that involved my camera memory card and some tears, I shared my kitchen yesterday in another tour (here) and today I am going to share my Elegant Christmas Entry in Champagne and Spa Blue.

Earlier this year, I received these gorgeous spa blue framed chinoiserie panels and they went beautifully in my entry staircase.
I decided to add spa blue to my Christmas decor this year to compliment and pull out that color from the panels.
It was soooo much harder to find this color ornaments than I thought. There was baby blue or aqua turquoise colors but spa blue was difficult! I found the poinsettia picks at Hobby Lobby and the ornaments too but they were in a pack with a lot of bright turquoise ornaments so I had to toss a lot of them in the garbage and just keep the lightest and muted-colored ornaments.
The other ornaments and picks I’ve collected over the years but I’ll link same or similar below in the “shop the post” section.
My 12’ slim flocked pre-lit tree (with LED lights) is the perfect choice instead of a full tree because it would be hard to pass through here. Trust me…they are 3 times as full. It would be crazy. But I make it look fuller by stuffing it and adding lots of stems coming out of it. That’s the trick! It gives it a lot of dimension!
I found this darling sleigh at a boutique years ago and I love putting it in my entry with this cute faux fur large gift sack from Michael’s I found a couple years ago to hold gifts and decor. I’d like to find some large green garland next year but for now I have this simple frosted green garland (Hobby Lobby) with champagne tinsel ribbon that I made into large double bows.
I wired them on all the way around the banister and used zip ties for the garland. I’ve done it for a couple of years and it doesn’t ruin the wood at all.
I first introduced my glass trees in last year’s Christmas tour and I had to put them in my entry again this year because I really liked having them here when I walked in the door and so did those that visited our home. The lights twinkle on and off and we all love it as a family.
This cute pillow from HomeGoods had to come home with me. I knew it would be a darling addition on my entry bench.
I love creating little vignettes and this sweet angel is one of my favorite Christmas pieces that come out each year. Bless her heart…she’s been glued so many times because of kids and nerf footballs and bad packing…ha! Yet, here she is!
My friends have done the most fabulous jobs decorating their homes so please click on their names below and take a tour with a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy! I promise you won’t regret it!

Summer, I’m so sorry you lost your photos because I know they were amazing, but I’m also glad we got to see this beautiful space instead. Every detail is perfect and THAT MIRROR! So glad you could tour with us again this year. Merry (early) Christmas! XO, Christy
Christy, you’re the best…thank you!!! I’m learning that I can’t multi-task like I used to and I need to stop and slow down and double check things a few times. Omgooooosh haha! What a week! Ugh! But sitting and looking through these tours is such a treat and makes up for it all! Thanks again for hosting! Xoxo
