Nearly Natural 24" Golden Poinsettia Wreath
Thanksgiving was truly magical and helps me remember what I am thankful for every day. As December arrives however, it is time to start preparing for the rest of the festivities of the holiday season.
The magic and charm of the holiday season is often accompanied by underlying financial pressures and a subsequent shopping frenzy. Over the next few weeks I am going to suggest a number of fun, chic and festive projects and adornments that you can make in your home that are wallet friendly and will get your home ready for the festivities ahead.
As always, I am going to start with the entrance to your home. This is where you make your fist impression on neighbors who are dropping in, guests who are coming for a few drinks and there is nothing like a festively decorated entryway to lift your spirits after a long day at work.

Monarch Specialties 2015 Contemporary Coat Rack in Silver Metal
The holiday season is right around the corner with Thanksgiving rearing its beautiful head on Thursday. For many of us this means the start of many wonderful get togethers with dear friends and family. I thought it would be both useful and fun to post some tips on getting your home ready for your company.
Make the entrance of your home inviting by having a large area rug so your guests can feel free to slip off their shoes and leave them by the front door, especially if they are coming in from the rain. Some great, functional and inexpensive area rugs include Barhara Reversible Rug and the Zell Purple Rug, both from Uttermost
Another important and inviting tip is to make sure that you have enough hanging space for extra coats and outdoor accessories. If you do not have a big entrance unit to store a lot of extra stuff, consider investing in a simple portable coat rack that can be easily stored away when not in use. We offer some inexpensive coat racks in both a traditional wood style, like the Super Deluxe 75 Inch Hall Tree & Umbrella Rack from Homelegance, as well as more contemporary silver metal varieties, such as Monarch Specialties 2015 Contemporary Coat Rack in Silver Metal.
