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!
Good morning friends, and welcome to my first Christmas post of the season! I know it’s a little early for some (ie; my husband, haha!), but as bloggers we love to decorate early and, hopefully, inspire others. So on that note, today I’m joining the most amazing group of bloggers for Ella Claire’s Seasons of Home Holiday Series. This group is so talented and full of style – I just know you’ll find all kinds of inspiration from them!
French Inspired Christmas Front PorchHudson 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 (wink, wink)!I used natural garland which I purchased at my local Trader Joe’s and added my own lights. The wreaths are courtesy of Lynch Creek Farm.I’ve always used natural garland on the porch and usually I’ve paired it with this boxwood wreath, but this looks so much better. Now, I feel like the two go together better, and I couldn’t be happier with the fullness and beauty of these wreaths! 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
Farmhouse Inspired Christmas TourI used a live tree in the family room with a burlap tree skirt. This little cabin/house was a find this year at Home Goods. I have bought and collected the little white houses before, but for some reason, this just spoke to me! The frosty white trees are old but these are almost exactly the same!
The urns are Pottery Barn.

There are so many things to love about Christmas – from the music, to the lights, to the tree, but I must say, one of my biggest loves, is holiday wreaths. They are such a welcoming sight hanging on a door; there is nothing that sends quite the same message! I love that they are old-fashioned, yet modern at the same time.
