A French inspired Christmas front porch, decorated with natural greens and neutrals, is a simple but elegant take on the holiday.
Hello again! For a blogger who normally posts only once, or sometimes twice a week, this season has sure been busy! Hopefully you’re not sick of hearing from me, as I’m sharing my last holiday home tour post today! This time I’m joining some fellow blogger friends for their 12 Days of Holiday Homes Tour hosted by 11 Magnolia Lane and Evolution of Style, and I’m excited to show you my French Inspired Christmas Front Porch!
Though I’m showing you the porch last, it’s actually one of the most important parts of your holiday decorating as it sets the tone before anyone walks through the door. 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 natural 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 better!
I’m in love with my little pine tree! I love chubby trees and this one is just the perfect size for my vintage olive bucket. I swear 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, I featured them in my dough bowl as part of my kitchen 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 just tie it on with a simple ribbon.
