One of my favorite things about Christmas is walking in the neighborhood to see the decorations!
It’s great fun to dress up your porch for the holidays, and having decorations inside and out is a wonderful way to welcome your guests. Let them hear the sleigh bells ring even before they press the doorbell. Here’s our guide for decorating the outdoors for Christmas.
Spruce up your doors with a modern twist. Everyone will love these hip and unique square wreaths, welcoming in a contemporary and fun Christmas vibe. Its simple structure accented with silver bows and ornaments are an elegant touch, and complements well with the white and silver hanging ornaments.
Triple the fun this season with these wreath trios! Hang traditional round wreaths in this cascading pattern on your door to create some flow. The bold red ribbon is an eye-catching streak of festivity.
For starry nights, adorn your wreaths with Christmas lights and star ornaments. We love the white town cut outs that add a lively scene amidst the greenery.
Silver and blue is an excellent color combo for Christmas. This elegant door looks put together, with a silver wreath to dazzle during the holidays. Filled with silver pine cones, twigs and a touch of pink, the wreath is a nice finish to the light azure blue entrance.
Christmas vignettes are a beautiful addition to the porch that set the mood for the holidays. For a modern vignette, tie up large stars in a black or metal finish along with gold and white fairy lights. It blends wonderfully with a basket of evergreens to balance the neutral shades.
Bring a tree out to the porch. Layer faux fur under the tree for extra warmth.
There’s nothing like seeing the first signs of snow on a holiday morning, and rushing out to play. This rustic vignette sings out winter wonderland and rides the waves of nostalgia, with white skates adding a personal touch to the porch.
Mix textures and patterns and put them out on display in a bucket. Bring together a few logs, branches from the back woods and add a splash of pine cones for a frosted feel. The plain silver buckets are a great way to keep them all tucked together and wrapped up with fairy lights.
Welcome Christmas in with a playful peppermint themed vignette. The pastel blue ladder makes for a lovely makeshift tree to display your ornaments. Drape lights over a ladder and watch your porch glow with fun.
Bring in a Bit of a Breeze
Deck your windows with colorful rattan balls to upgrade the classic pine cone and berry mix. Extremely easy to care for, rattan makes for a great decorative item for all seasons.
Warm up the cool winter nights with a collection of blue and green bottles and use them as candle holders. It complements incandescent indoor lighting and creates a unique window accent. Want to stick to traditional green and red window decor? Try hanging wreaths in red ribbons. They are beautiful on wooden windows and hard to miss from far away.
Let your windows dazzle with a window wreath wrapped in lights.
Lay It All Out
Have a table by the porch? Make it festive by placing a bowl of ornaments in the color of your choice. This one is a great example with a seaside touch! Throw in a sand dollar or two, a starfish and a few shells for easy coastal Christmas.
Everyone’s looking forward to indulging in a delicious feast this holiday! With this fruity table runner, you’ll be reminded to feast lavishly and healthily. Traditional and festive, this is a runner that’s easy to assemble.
One Step at a Time
Lead your guests to your doorstep in a magical way this season for a celebration they won’t forget. The red accents add richness to the white backdrop and go well with decorative cushions on your porch chair.
These silver ribbons are adorable pieces to guide guests to the front door. Consider using a chalkboard to spell out your favorite Christmas lyrics or season’s greetings for a personal charm.
Don’t forget about your mailbox this season! In this example, the gorgeous blue and silver ornaments with burlap ribbons are refreshing colors to decorate with. Did you already send your letter to Santa?
Spread joy every day by wrapping your red mailbox with a matching ribbon and berries.
Let the holidays overflow with evergreens draped over the mailbox. We think the plaid ribbon is a nice textured finish to offset the green.play
