festive front entry

Saucy's collection of red and green ornaments made their way into the front entry this year.

Nothing says fun and funky at the holidays than red and green, especially if the green tends towards a hit of lime.

The presents under this small tree are colour - coded. If it's wrapped in red and green, it's one of the gifts that goes out of the house. Once this tree is bare underneath, Saucy knows all of her shipping and deliveries are finished.

The awesome glittery sign is from Dollarama. Hell, most of Saucy's decorations are from the dollar store, but you knew that already.

The spool of baker's twine is from Anthropologie. Saucy's kicking herself that she didn't get the green one also.

The light from the tiny staircase window catches the glittery stuff on the tree and it sprays sparkles all over the walls.

It's magical.

The candy at the front door disappears quickly.

Also magic.

I LOVE that you've got it down to a science - the tree by the front door with "outgoing" gifts is sheer brilliance. This year I could barely get a glimmer of spirit, but I hope next year it finds me and I can enjoy it again.

Merry Christmas, my friend.

I dig lime, too. I found awesome lime Christmas gift wrap at Hobby Lobby.

Beautiful tree & decorations. That lime colour makes everything fresh & modern. Colour-coding the gifts is a brilliant idea plus it really adds to the overall effect. Wishing you & all your loved ones a safe & happy Christmas!
