A Farmhouse Christmas on the Porch

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Farmhouse Christmas PorchIt’s almost Christmas and I realized that I haven’t shown you my farmhouse Christmas porch! I’ve been enjoying having a rustic farmhouse look throughout my house this year and my porch is no exception!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Farmhouse Christmas Porch8 My porch is very small and there is not room for anything elaborate…but that’s really alright since the farmhouse look that I want is very simple! It echoes what you will find inside…lanterns, greenery and burlap with galvanized accents.

The olive buckets were an unbelievable $10 find at Walmart…yes, you read that correctly! Beside them are the sap buckets that I found at the Country Living Fair. I have filled them with greenery, pinecones and berries.
