Christmas Porches

There's nothing like a front porch all decked out for the holidays.
These are my easy peasy curb-appeal inspirations for Christmas porches.

This is a very simple but very lovely arrangement.  It's so easy to drape some greenery around the door frame.  The appeal and surprise are the green apples tucked evenly in the shrubs.

How easy is this?  Wrap some topiaries in burlap.
 Then, stack some boxes and join them with ribbon.

This entry is fabulous on its own.  Adding a garland and wreaths makes it spectacular.

How fast could you pull this together?  Add some ornaments to an existing shrub, place an unadorned wreath on the door, add a lantern and an egg basket with greenery.  I'll admit that the snow helps.

This porch has a similar look.  It's just as lovely.

Lights make everything look good.





I've been seeing three wreaths in a row on front doors.
The only thing you need to add is a sled with skates and some garland.

White door, white urns, white Christmas.
 Magnolia cuttings are always easy and they last a long time.

Wrap your porch posts with garlands and
 suspend over-sized mercury glass ornaments from the ceiling.


I especially like the bulbs in a bag on the door.

Via

Dark facade, white trim, and all you need is a red wreath for a pop of color.

Via

I love this idea. The dark house color makes it work.

I know this isn't a porch, but what a lead to the front door.  These are clear quart canning jars with votives (you could use the battery votives) placed inside a wreath and outlining a walkway.

What have you done on your front porch to celebrate the season?
