How to Transform Your Entryway for the Holidays

Hark! The most wonderful time of the year is finally here. If you’re like us, you’ve been counting down the days until you can break out the holiday music and twinkle lights without getting the side-eye from your neighbors. There’s nothing quite like coming home and being greeted with holiday cheer, so we’ve teamed up with Pier 1 to find four affordable and accessible ways to bring the holidays to your very own entryway this year.

1. Lighting

A string of twinkle lights instantly sets a jovial tone so if you aren’t able to hang lights on your railings or doorframes, a few of these clear glimmer strings tucked inside an outdoor lantern makes a festive statement. They are perfect to use indoors as well in a simple glass hurricane like this or you can opt for this mercury one to dress it up a bit. Another big bonus? They’re easy to store (perfect for apartments or homes low on closet space!).


2. Greenery

We’ve all witnessed the transformation a room undergoes when you bring in plant life and greenery, and the same rule applies here. These preserved boxwoods are perfectly festive but also serve as a chic entryway addition year round, so feel free to leave up past December without judgment! Garland is a classic holiday decor element, but purchasing fresh greenery each year can be a tough pill to swallow. We love Pier 1’s Pre-Lit Classic Deluxe Garland so that you can continue to reap the benefits of your investment for seasons to come!


3. Personal Touches


Nothing makes a house feel more like a home around the holidays than personal touches that never fail to make you smile. It’s no secret that we adore our pets here at The Everygirl (might be the understatement of the year), so when we spotted this LED Woven Christmas Dog we knew it would make the perfect addition to our seasonal entryway.


4. Pops of Color

A dose of seasonal color can instantly transform your entryway into the winter wonderland you’ve been dreaming of. We especially loved this classic red and green Holiday Santa Doormat (only $29.95!).

Transforming your entry for the holidays is a sure way to get yourself in the spirit of the season, but feel free to use these tips inside your home as well! Whether you add lighting to your front stoop or garland to your living room, these guidelines are sure to convert your home into a winter wonderland.
