It's officially starting... the #dbsobsessed holiday decor series! So many fun makers, ideas and DISCOUNTS are coming your way. Get excited! Let's get started with the entry, as it's the first thing people will see when coming to your place!
Just because you live in an apartment, you don't have to forego the outdoor holiday decorations that make the season bright! At least, not if you have neighbors who love Christmas just as much as you do!
Here is what I did this year, to bring Christmas spirit to my entry! Luckily, there are killer discount codes for the Dovetails and Sash store (based in Concord, CA!), as well as the After Infinity Shop, so you too can get a fabulous wooden sign for the season...
With the blessing of my across the way neighbors, I decided to put up some of this gorgeous garland on the bannister of our building, with some battery operated fairy lights. I LOVE the look. It is classic, clean and so lush. I took some twine and tied and garland up, around the lights I had wrapped around. SUPER easy, because I purchased the pre-made garland from ourlocal Walnut Creek Tree lot, Toby's.
My neighbor's adorable Boston Terrier, Buster, stopped by to supervise. He assured me that he approved.
I mean, do I even have to say anything about this doormat? I didn't think so, but I will anyway. It is EVERYTHING. This (and every other) mat from AfterInfinity are SO clutch for making an otherwise drab apartment entrance, super chic.
How fun is this? I took pieces of various types of Christmas trees, and popped the branches into my existing succulents at the front door. They look FAB. So lush and different. The real belle of this ball is the Countdown to Christmas sign from the lovely Becky at Dovetails and Sash, a fab shop on Etsy!
I opted for writing 'too many' so as to avoid the need for any upkeep, but if you have little ones, it could be really fun to actually count down! Becky has a ton of great signs available on her shop page, and she is a pleasure to work with. I very highly recommend checking it out for yourself, or as an option for Christmas shopping!
Finally, a simple Target sign on a command hook, and voila! The outside is complete. Stay tuned as we venture indoors in the days to come...
