For a blogger who normally posts roughly twice a week, this season has sure been busy! Hopefully you’re not sick of hearing from me, as I’m sharing another holiday home tour post today. This time I’m joining the 12 Days of Holiday Homes Tour hosted by 11 Magnolia Lane and Evolution of Style, and I’m excited to show you my Soft & Subtle Christmas Front Porch!
I love decorating a holiday porch, and I love looking at them, too. For me, it’s actually one of the most important parts of your holiday decorating as it sets the tone before anyone walks through the door.
If you’ve been here before, you know that this year has been the year that I introduced pinks and soft blushes into my Christmas decorating. Totally a new thing for me 🙂 And though I love the palette, pink on the porch didn’t really seem appropriate. So, I went with some soft blush in my ribbons, and otherwise, a lot of traditional greens and pine cones. It’s a slightly softer version than last year’s porch, and I love the way it turned out!
This year I’m lucky enough to be featuring two gorgeous natural wreaths from Lynch Creek Farms and I’m loving them. I chose the Blended Bay Wreath and it’s absolutely gorgeous! And it smells amazing because of the fresh bay leaves! I received their wreaths last year as well, and I can tell you that they are truly beautiful. Grown in the Pacific Northwest and shipped to your door they are definitely a worthwhile treat for the holidays!
The garland is live cedar garland from Home Depot. But you could definitely get the same look from faux if you prefer.
The Lynch Creek Farm wreaths were already gorgeous on their own with the cedar and bay leaves, but I embellished them just slightly by adding some eucalyptus.
I kept the porch decor simple, with white poinsettias, a lantern filled with mini pinecones, and a vintage olive basket filled with greens and more pinecones.
I love the contrast of the vintage rusty olive basket with the pretty blush ribbon. The basket is filled with some faux garland to take up space and fill up the bottom. Then I just piled in live green clippings, pine cones, and some brass bells.
This live cedar garland even had little pine cones still growing on it! How cute is that?!
