Elegant Fall Entryway

Impress guests with this chic living arrangement.

Make a seasonal statement in your front hall with a slender Japanese maple standing on its burlap-wrapped base. Majestic but not manicured, it gives the foyer a fab, unfussy feel. Keep a saucer under the root ball to prevent water damage to furniture. Post-party, pot and keep the tree indoors or, if the killing frost is at least six weeks away, plant the tree outside.
