Having a home that exudes "hygge" -- that safe, cozy feeling that makes you want to come in and snuggle up with a warm, fuzzy blanket and a steaming cup of hot cocoa -- is something most of us strive for during the holiday season. Whether you're staging to sell or just decorating for your own pleasure, one of the first steps in establishing that welcoming vibe for your home is to create an inviting entryway. This space is literally the first impression people will have of the interior of your house and sets the tone for the rest of the house. And during the holidays, you want visitors, as well as potential buyers, to feel that your house is a place where they can relax, unwind, and feel at home.

What if I told you I can give you the tools to recreate a Pinterest-perfect Thanksgiving table without spending a fortune? You'd be pretty excited, right???
