Front Porch Christmas Decorating



I can’t deny it.  Until this afternoon, there were bins and quite a mess on our front porch.  And I can’t believe that on December 10th, I spent some time outside decorating – in my t-shirt!  This weather is so crazy!  As much as I have lots of red pops inside, I found myself keeping it neutral and simple on on our front porch.




I used one of my favorite and quick tips – I used some hanging brackets to hang ribbon around the door instead of roping or garland.  It is a simpler look, inexpensive, and quick.  Plus, you can reuse the ribbon when the season is over.  We also put some lights around the door.




I so wanted a little tree out here, so I added a blue spruce in a  maple bucket and paired it with some lanterns, greenery and ornaments on the bench.  I leaned our vintage sled with some greenery and a bow using the same ribbon.  Our little tree is a quite crooked, but I think it is perfectly imperfect.  You should see the tree we picked to use inside!  Crooked seems to be our theme this year.




I put together some more lanterns, a tray, ornaments and greenery on the vintage box we keep between our rocking chairs and added  a no-sew throw blanket.




I made two more bows to put on wreaths that we put on the sugar house and called it a day.   I could be crazy, but I feel like this is simple enough that it can last a little bit past Christmas as well.  If you ever wondered how I make my bows, I made a video some time ago, but it is all still the same.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
