In a comment on my last post, the Queen of Halloween made a suggestion that totally changed my front hall dilemma from confusing to totally making sense. Thanks QOH! Sometimes it's just a little thing that makes all the difference in decorating.
I moved the flowers to the floor by the bench and scored a sale lantern for $16.00 at Hancock Fabrics, which now resides where the flowers once were.
I'm loving it!
