I love adding some holiday flair to our front porch to make it feel welcoming and festive.

I love using fresh garland outside because it will last all season in the cold. I usually don’t use it inside as it dries too quickly, especially on the mantle over the fireplace. But the freezing temperatures here mean that it stays fresh (well, actually freeze-dried lol) outside.
The fresh cedar garland smells so good as you walk through the front door and it drapes beautifully compared to faux! I usually get mine at Home Depot, or you can always check your local garden centre or make your own!
I love a pretty wreath on the front door for the holidays. These ones are faux cedar and are lit for some extra twinkle at night. I added some pretty bells and a bow made with soft gingerbread coloured velvet and pale pink silk ribbons.
We usually put our Christmas tree in the living right in front of the window so that you can see the lights as you pull up to the house at night. By adding some faux lit mini trees outside it almost looks like the outside and the inside are blending together! I’ll snap a picture at night and update the post soon so you can see!
I found these cute sparse trees at Canadian Tire. They still had the smaller 4ft size in stock the last time I looked!
Adding some cozy accessories is a must for a Christmas Front Porch! I usually have a blanket sitting out for snuggles on the porch swing and this year I added some pale pink candles. I love the simple, Nordic feel of the real candles and fresh garland together.
A simple doormat adds some warmth the front step and of course I had to put out some cute boots, just because they are cute lol!
We heat our house in the winter with a wood-burning stove so we always have chopped wood coming into the house. It’s handy to keep it stacked on the front porch where it’s easy to grab a few pieces. But even if you don’t have a real fireplace, it looks warm and inviting to stack a few logs by the front door!
I hope you’ve enjoyed these easy styling tips for decorating your Christmas Front Porch this season! 2020 has been a hard year and I think it’s important to bring a little holiday cheer to your home if you are able!
