Holiday front door decor

Is there a warmer way of saying “Merry Christmas” and “Please come in!” than a front door that’s bedecked with greens and trimmings?

The doorway at the top has a swag of bright green holly entwined with red velvet ribbon. The red and green streamers are tipped with Christmas balls. In the center, the half-bucket is filled with greens and bright red winter berries.

At the bottom of the page, oval hemlock wreaths are hung on the side lights. They’re sprinkled with nuts and fruits and accented with red ribbon bows. Another garland of hemlock is draped over the railings. The shrubbery is dotted with twinkling Christmas tree lights!
