Adding Christmas to My Front Porch

I am sure I have said this 5 million times, but I LOVE to decorate my front porch. I am so excited to show you how I am adding Christmas to my front porch this year!

Adding Christmas to My Front Porch – Filling Planters

Instead of pulling my planters into my garage this year I decided to fill them up with greenery instead.  I found all the greenery from Afloral, even the tree. Can you imagine how nice it is to look at wintery planters instead of empty or dead ones? What a nice change!

To fill the planter I used 3 different kinds of greenery and a mini tree.

I first added the 24″ tree, partially burying it in the dirt… but not too much as I didn’t want it to get overly messy. Then I added in my first color of greenery, followed by some holly berry.  I wanted to add some red and I love the shape and color of their leaves. Last, I added in the long cedar that was a bit more vibrant to fill in and hang over the sides. I like to mix different greenery because it adds depth and it makes it look real!

I also added the greenery to my hanging pots.  It sure makes them pop off the white brick.

Garland

My garland is real cedar. I found it at Costco for only $17. It did take 2 of them to do my whole porch, but I love it! I accent my garland with white light strands, but you can also use bows or ribbon that would look just as beautiful.

Tip: to keep real cedar alive longer, soak it in the bathtub before putting it up and then spray it with a squirt bottle every few days! Yes, even in winter.

This classy green look is especially gorgeous once there is a fresh coat of snow!

Accessories

I used so much greenery I really wanted to bring in some more red. I did that with my accessories.

  • Christmas cutout – A fun Christmas cutout is a great way to bring in color. I decorated with my ho ho HO sign. I sold this in my shop… but that is now closed, so sorry!  But you can use any sign that is red!

Christmas throws and pillows

The Christmas tree burlap pillows are from CB creations. They are so fun because you can change them out for every season. And you can never go wrong adding in a throw like this one.Christmas lanterns

  • Lantern – I also filled my lanterns with leftover Christmas ornaments and added a few wrapped empty boxes for a fun element. The neighbor kids always think there are presents in them!

  • Wreath – If you want to create a true front porch appeal, always add a little something to your front door. This year I chose a wreath that I have used before (similar one here),  and then my Ikea trees that compliment my decor for any season.

I hope you enjoy how I added Christmas to my front porch to create this look! Happy decorating!
