A French inspired Christmas front porch, decorated with natural greens and neutrals, is a simple but elegant take on the holiday.
To me, the porch is actually one of the most important parts of your holiday decorating as it sets the tone before anyone walks through the door. Not only does it welcome visitors and friends, but it greets anyone who walks or drives by with its seasonal decor. Is there anything more cheerful than a front porch all decorated for the holidays?
So welcome and come on over….
Hudson says welcome, too! He wanted to come outside and “help” today so he came and hung with me. And no, he didn’t get in the way at all! 😉
For this year’s Christmas front porch I used natural garland and wreaths and I’m loving the way they look!
I’ve always used cedar garland on the porch and I’ve usually paired it with boxwood wreaths, but this looks so much better. Now, I feel like the two go together so much better!
And if you don’t want to or can’t find natural greenery, I’m sharing some of my all-time favorite faux options below that seriously look so real!!
I’m in love with my little pine tree! I love chubby trees and this one is the perfect size for the porch. I plunked it in a vintage olive bucket, but it would equally cute in a basket. It makes me smile every time I walk by! 🙂
An old galvanized tub holds some extra greens, logs and pinecones.
I love poinsettias and usually have the white ones scattered around. Inside, you can see them styled in my dough bowl as part of my kitchen holiday tour. The bucket is vintage French zinc.
These wreaths originally came with a red bow, however, since I wasn’t doing red this year I replaced that with my own tan ribbons.
I also added the little gold and coppery beads and I’m loving the result. With all of the simple greenery on the porch it’s nice to have just a little bling!
Even my bench got a little decorating! I love to add a small wreath here and tie it on with a simple ribbon.
