An Entryway Vignette {plus a little tip!}

It's amazing what a difference a little pop of color through fresh flowers 
can make this time of year!

Here's a little tip: Try adding fresh flowers with artificial flowers you keep on-hand. I picked up these beautiful pink tulips at Trader Joe's and arranged them with the white artificial flowers I've had for a long time.

Using artificial flowers with your fresh flowers provides a much fuller bouquet at a fraction of the cost. It also allows you to incorporate flower types you love during seasons where they are harder to find.

To keep the tulips fresh, I put them in a mason jar with water inside the pitcher. I tucked the artificial flower stems into the pitcher - not the water. :)

Using well-loved boots for decoration and easy access is 
fun farmhouse-style accessory...

But my very favorite item in our entryway is the framed canvas of our three sons... They've grown a lot in the fours years since the picture was taken!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope your day is going well...

  3. I love the flowers! I once mixed fresh flowers with artificial,l but put them all together in water. I like your way better. So pretty! Have a blessed week! Diane

  4. Julie, this is a beautiful vignette. I love fresh flowers. Having them in the entry way is a lovely way to greet guests and to brighten and entry. Hugs. P.S. I invite you to share at my Thursday hop this week. xo

  5. Such a pretty entryway! Love the idea for the fresh flowers mixed with faux. The vintage boots are so cute. Love your paper flowers, too! <3 xo Karen

  6. Such a pretty little spot, the sun light looks so pretty coming in. The fresh flowers sure do add a bright bit of life during these winter days, very nice!

  7. I love that idea! i never would've thought to add faux with fresh. Your faux flowers look real too!

  8. I guess you could mix, the faux have plastic wire stems and would do well in water, they all look so darn real here. Love the inviting feel to the entryway....the chest is fabulous.


  9. Julie, I agree that there's nothing like fresh flowers in the home! Great idea to add faux with the fresh. Never thought of doing that. Love that awesome pitcher and your entry way is so warm and welcome! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  10. Love your vignette...everything looks so pretty! Great idea to mix real flowers with fake ones...I thought they were all real until I read your post. Really love the pitcher that you have them in.

  11. I love the tip about using artificial flowers with real ones. I had never thought about it but what a thrifty idea. Happy Valentine's Day!

  12. Everything looks so welcoming! I love that pitcher.
