Christmas Porch Decor in Copper and Caramel

This holiday porch features lots of greenery with pops of copper and caramel to create classic Christmas porch decor with warm and cozy tones.

From the moment someone walks up to your front door, it’s an indication of what’s inside. The Christmas porch decor really sets the tone for the entire house!

That’s why I like to tie the indoor decor to what I’m doing outside. Each year I tweak the decor slightly, the color or style being slightly different, and I want the porch to reflect that!

So my Bronze and Copper Living Room is reflected in what I did on the front porch this year. This Christmas porch decor is classic, with cedar garland and wreaths, and lots of greenery. But it also has pops of brown with caramel ribbon and bronze ornaments that connect it to what’s going on on the inside.

Not only is the porch important to setting the tone for your holiday decorating, but it’s also one of the easiest areas to decorate! It doesn’t take much to make it feel festive. Even just adding garland and a couple of wreaths makes a huge difference.

And if you choose to add a little more than that, it can really take it to the next level!

On the doors are my favorite cedar wreaths that look sooo real!! What I love about using neutral greenery is you can add any colors or accessories to change up the look. Just by changing the ribbon every year, it’s like a whole new wreath!

I also used my favorite garlands – they look so real, too!! (I used 3 to cover our double doors). This garland is also a great option (and they’re already lit!)

To decorate the wreaths, I added these pretty little gold berries for some sparkle. I usually just wedge them in between the branches. These wreaths have pretty thick greenery and most anything stays in place. But if not, you could easily hot glue them if you want. 

I finished them off with camel colored velvet ribbon and my favorite brass bells. These bells are one of my favorite things to decorate with, and I love how the gold looks against the green wreaths and the black doors!

As for the trees, I added two different, live pine trees to the porch and I just love the look! There’s a small cedar tree and then an even smaller pine. The freshness is so nice (and you can plant them after), and the contrast between the two types adds some nice dimension. But of course, you could easily get the same look using a couple of quality faux trees!

Pine cones are also something I like to add every year and brings a touch of nature.

I often use my traditional metal and wood lanterns, but this year I wanted to change it up while also relating to the gold/brown theme I have going so brass lanterns made an appearance! I used a larger one along with two of these. The brass color brings such brightness to the porch!

A bucket full of greenery decorated with ornaments creates a unique focal point and is a little different than just adding another tree! I added both fresh and faux branches to the bucket, along with gold and copper ornaments for a little extra sparkle.

And you could easily change this look to suit whatever colors you’re using! The brass bells would look equally beautiful with red velvet ribbon, or you could go neutral like I did last year.

  5. Holy guacamole – I’d love walking up to this porch each day! I’ve always wanted to add live trees to our porch but just couldn’t bring myself to spend the money because of my black moldy thumbs and the fact that everything (and I mean everything) I touch dies. I think though you’ve changed my mind! I adore your entire porch and all that live greenery is seriously stunning. I know your neighbors must love it too. pinned

    1. Aww Cindy – thank you!! That is so kind of you!!

      Happy Holidays to you!
