Festive Entrances

Wintertime and the holiday season brings out the best in doors!  Even an otherwise mundane entrance can be transformed by the addition of ribbon and twinkly lights.

Recently I led a group of friends in a tour of historic Georgetown in Washington, D.C. and took the occasion to snap a few photos of some of my favourites.

English Boxwood Wreath

This was one of my favourites.  Although the greenery surrounds the charming door all year ’round, it still looks more festive when the Christmas wreath adorns the door.

Red doors are the most popular colour it seems.

Some “wreaths” are square to match the windows.

And some are not “wreaths” at all.

The holiday decor comes in all colours, shapes and sizes but they all look gorgeous!  Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Holidays!

    Dear Deirdre,
    Thank you for this wonderful post, what gorgeous pictures. It reminded me that “on foot” is the best way to capture the beautiful details. The charm of these doors cannot really be enjoyed zipping by in a vehicle.
