Decorating Your Front Porch for the Holidays
The holiday season is officially upon us! No matter what you are celebrating or who you’re having over this year, your front yard and porch should look their best for any potential guests.
Here are some options for those of you who want to add some holiday cheer to your front porch. Whether you want something elaborate and bright or something minimal, there are options for you here.
Our Favorite Ideas for Decorating Your Front Porch
These are our top suggestions for decorating your front porch just in time for the holiday festivities.
1. Lots of Greenery
For those of you that really love the more “natural” look, and by this we mean greenery, there are some great options out there. Depending on the layout of your porch you could incorporate wreaths, greenery on the porch rails, mini (or even full-size) Christmas trees, etc. You can never have too many plants and trees!
If you are interested in getting a little more crafty with the task, you could even make your own live wreath instead of buying them. Adding Christmas trees can be simple and natural, or you could light them up and/or decorate them as well.
2. Lighting It Up
Adding additional lighting, both to your landscape and to your front porch decorations, is a great way to illuminate your home. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing and festive, it also makes it a little safer for your guests who may be visiting your home and need to walk up to your house.
You can get really elaborate with the lights and add them to greenery, the porch railings, the edge of your roof, or even down the walkways. You could also add candles (just don’t leave them unattended for a lengthy period of time).
3. Adding Lots of Color
Even if you don’t want to add extensive lighting to your front porch, splashes of color are another great way to incorporate the holiday spirit.
Color can be added with winter-hardy flowers and plants, Christmas ornaments, ribbons, and other holiday trinkets.
4. Making it Vintage
Last but certainly not least, you could incorporate a more vintage look to your outdoor holiday decorations. You could do this fairly easily, as there are a lot of lovely vintage Christmas and holiday decor options. Here are some beautiful and affordable ones!
Doing this could also allow you to incorporate everything else on the decor list. You could also add lights, greenery, and lots of colors while keeping it very vintage or even rustic.
