Highlight Your Entrance With Some Floral Decor And Lamps

Flowers are considered very auspicious for weddings, so we thought of decorating the entire foyer area with fresh flowers and toran. You can keep the decor minimalistic and simple and make the foyer unit your focal point. Place a Ganesha idol on the foyer unit as a symbol of happiness and prosperity. We have also kept some unique kalash decor, a floral Ganesha motif on the wall and a floral rangoli on the floor to amp up the space’s oomph factor. The foyer unit with a seating arrangement, shoe cabinet and the pegboard wall with hangers help keep your guests’ shoes and bags and other essentials in an organised manner. This entryway decor is intricate, functional and sure to grab your guest’s attention and works well even for small apartments.
