North Pole Bed & Breakfast Entry

Hello Everyone!   
 I'm so excited to share my North Pole Bed & Breakfast entry with you today.....and I also want you guys to see the new furniture in the entry. 
 I've always admired the benches I see in other peoples entry's but haven't ever tried one in my own.     I spotted this bench being clearanced at Hobby Lobby the other day and fell in love with it.    I was first drawn to the simple lines and of course the white paint!

                 This is how the wall in the entry looked last Christmas.....big change for Christmas 2021

I always like to have a theme in mind when I begin decorating an area,  so I hung a North Pole Bed & Breakfast sign over my new bench,    

At a  North Pole Bed & Breakfast one of the activities available might be a sleigh ride    So, I added  a Winter Wonderland sleigh being pulled by a cow with a cute buffalo check trapper hat on to the vignette on my bench seat.    If you have been following my recent entryway posts,   you will remember seeing this cow pulling a different sleigh in an earlier post.    I had to move her.....long story.....tell you a little more further down this post.

                                       I made a frosty floral design to set on the bench seat......

On the table by the bench I have a vintage white ceramic tree ........

And next to the ceramic tree,    I stood a thin Santa with the sweetest face......and he's all dressed in white

I have a small table on the other side of the bench with a couple of metal tree's,   a buffalo check reindeer,   and another standing Santa all dressed in white.

I didn't do much decorating on the wall across from the "bench" wall.     I kept the same wall art that has been in there for a while.

The only change I made was to hang a Winter Barn picture over the big mirror on that wall.

Now,   I'll move on down to the wall where I had to move the cow from.

I completely changed the vignette that I had just designed a few days may remember seeing that!

The little twig tree was the only light in this corner and it was pretty dark.    

I added some lamps that I had on hand......I actually "borrowed" them from some side tables in the family!    By the time I made room for the lamps,   everything had to go and I had to create a whole new vignette for the table.

I left the wreath that was hanging on the wall above the table,   but I added a Mrs Claus & Co Reindeer Inn Bed & Breakfast sign in the center of the wreath

I hope you enjoyed the tour of my Christmas entry as much as I enjoyed you stopping by....hugs
