On an Entryway Table – Adding seasonal items in the entryway sets the tone and creates a cozy atmosphere right as someone walks in. Here I’ve stacked wood to give texture and a natural vibe. This could last all throughout fall and winter. All I will need to swap out for the full decor idea is the pumpkins for some Christmas ornaments.
