Make Front Entryway Welcoming

The outside entryway of a home leaves an impression.

Is it welcoming?

Does it give a hint of who lives there?

Is it well kept or neglected?

With these questions in mind, my homemade pink and cream colored rose wreath got placed on the front door.

This little number came from a thrift store. It hangs on a wall above the outgoing mail basket. It’s a nice shape and colorful. It looks very old-fashioned. Does anyone know the origin of this kind of decoration?

This old chair was a steal at $5. It has a nicely carved back. even though the seat needs fixing, it still makes a perfect perch for a small wreath with more pink flowers and ribbons.

On the brick floor in front of the door is a bright rug. This was a post (

The front entry way is now ready for guests or to welcome home all family members.

How pretty and welcoming. I need to do something to make my entry much friendlier!

I love the idea of the chair. I actually have a few I have collected and was just thinking this morning that I needed to work on my entry way. Thanks for the idea!

I agree, entryway of a home does leave an impression even for people that just walk by. You made a good and welcoming impression!!

I love the homey feel of all your decorations.

Most people enter from the back door - just the way the house is laid out. I do need to spruce up both entryways! Love your very welcoming touches.

Your entry looks very welcoming! I have to finish adding a few spring touches to mine yet.

Have a good weekend,

Susan - I am so excited - hubby just put foxfire on my computer and I can leave comments! Whew.

I bet your entrance way is gorgeous and inviting with all those pinks!

I have frogs! Yes, frogs.
