Foyer Table Arrangement


Happy Friday! Whew, the week went by fast! Today, I would like to share our foyer table arrangement.  
I found this canister at Home Goods years ago and love it!
I made this arrangement several years ago and placed it into a new pot.  I was shooting for a Tuscan/Spring look.
Y'all know how I love garden balls, so I sat one beside the arrangement!
This is the foyer...
And this is how it used to look before the arrangement.  Now....onto my question>>>
Ok, I've got a question for you ladies. See the chandelier above, well, I was playing with the idea of heading to Hobby Lobby to buy a few springs garlands to drape around the chandy!  Obviously, the garland in the picture is not full enough for my liking, but I do want something that drapes and cascades downward a bit, what do you think?
 Whatever garland I find it will need to fit in with this look. I have a few ideas....
Why do builders always hang the chandelier so high? This bothers me, so I thought, a good way to balance the chandelier with the room is to make it appear lower by adding spring garland.  I would love to know your thought on this.
I think a little spring around the chandy will look pretty.  I will post some pictures if I find what I am looking for and see what you guys think. Have a fabulous weekend! xo, Liz

  1. Love your foyer!! I think a garland on the chandelier would look beautiful! I love adding a garland and changing it out with the seasons, such a fun way to dress up the dining room! :) I also love your Tuscan/Spring arrangement. You gave me such a great idea for my formal living room coffee table. I have all of the exact items you used in your arrangement (minus the vase) I'm going to go make it right now!! Thanks for all of you're inspiration Liz. Have a great weekend.

  2. I think a spring garland on the chandy will look great! It'll definitely help to make the chandy appear a little lower and you could even switch it out with different garlands for different seasons/holidays. :) I love the diagonal wood pattern in your foyer too. So pretty!

I really love when you use the grapevine or twig rope I think it's called like the one you use in your fall decor that would look really nice with some spring garland what you think about that also just wanted to know if you are going to do your video's again cuz they where AWSOME !!! Once again I'm so glad your back with your creative self lol!

  5. Hi Liz! It looks great. How about if you added some ivy to the forsythia ? Ivy may give you the fullness that you want and you can incorporate the spring foliage. I'm sure what ever you come up with, it will be gorgeous. Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Hi Liz. I think that might look really good. I don't know why so many people hang their chandeliers/light fixtures so high above dining tables. I like it better when they are lower.. I like the idea of something drape-y and springy looking. xo Diana

  9. What a cute foyer- love the angles. Your entryway table looks great! The stacked boxes below are cute and I do like the green container too.

  10. I really like the wispiness of the forsythia and would probably not add too much more. What I'm wondering is if the chandy could be lowered. Sometimes there are extensions that builders remove so the lighting is out of the way for all the finish work that goes on. They don't want anyone bonking their heads or risk damaging light fixtures. I think you can even purchase extension kits, but it might require some rewiring which isn't difficult. Just a thought!

  12. Your foyer looks great. I love tuscan style. I think a little greenery or moss covered twigs would look good and give the chandelier warmth. I can't wait to see what you find. Thanks for sharing. Denise

  16. Liz, the chandelier can be dropped. The extra chain can be purchased at Home Depot. I bet there is enough cord to make it work. At least 3 inches. I do like your idea of more drapery! Oh question. Have you thought about painting the interior of your front door black? I think it would be amazing. Or doing some sort of wood faux paint treatment. Maybe make it look like alder wood?
