Christmas on the Porch

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Christmas on the PorchYaay! We are finally having rain and then a cold spell! It feels like Christmas is really on the way! It’s actually been ready for a while so I think it’s time I shared my Christmas porch. It has lots of red with tartan plaid and galvanized accents…a little hint of what’s waiting for you inside!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Christmas on the PorchI have a small porch so I have to choose my pieces to have a big bang in a little space and still leave room for visitors to get to the door! And I will be honest…there’s a lot of Lego chaos going on inside courtesy of the little grands so I am finding clean and simple quite attractive these days!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Christmas on the PorchOn one side you are greeted by an olive bucket containing a boxwood tied off with a plaid bow. It’s flanked by a lantern filled with red ornaments and my new favorite…a pair of rain boots filled with frosted berries and greenery. The boots are actually a Walmart sale find!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Faux Magnolia WreathOn the door you will find my POTTERY BARN INSPIRED FAUX MAGNOLIA WREATH. It has been rotated from the mantel a couple of years ago to the porch…a great way to keep something fresh and different in each location.

But with a 5 and 6 year old in the house, there’s always lots of excitement!

And for more idea for a small space, here’s a look at my FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS PORCH. And stay tuned for my mantel reveal…coming in a couple of days!

Remember to pin it!

  1. Very welcoming, Debbie. I know you are going to have a fun Christmas with those little guys close at hand. We had a very wet few days, but now it is just grey and cold. Perfect weather for sitting by a cozy fire, drinking a cup of hot tea, and catching up on favorite blogs. Merry, Merry! ~ Sarah
