35 Stunning Ideas to Create a Warm and Inviting Christmas Front Entry

Transform your front entry for the holidays with these 35 stunning Christmas decorating ideas! Whether your style is farmhouse or transitional, your guests will be delighted by your festive display!

Can we share a secret?

Even though we’re decor bloggers with active social media accounts, sometimes we don’t get our homes decorated for Christmas until way later than we “should.”

We know we’re supposed to have everything all set and done for the holidays by the beginning of November so we can start sharing it early enough that our readers can plan what they want to do a month or two later.

Sometimes, life gets in the way.

Or we just aren’t feeling in the mood to decorate for Christmas when it’s only just started feeling like fall!

So you know what we do?

We decorate our porches and our front entries.

It looks like we’re on top of things!

Proper decor bloggers.

These finished areas give us something to share. While we slowly work our way through the 537 tubs of Christmas decorations piled inside our houses… LOL

If you take the time to make the first spaces you and your guests ever see look Christmasy, you can get by with nothing more than a tree and a Christmas-scented candle in the rest of your home!

Today, we’ve rounded up some fantastic ideas to help you look like you’ve got your act together when it comes to decorating for Christmas too.
