Christmas on the Porch

I have a very special Christmas porch to share this year! It's not that it's spectacular in design or that I have really outdone myself this year, although I really did try! :-) No...the extra special part of my porch came from a wonderful surprise that came to my house yesterday... early Christmas snow! Here's what I saw when I looked out of my window this morning!

Can you believe it?

It snowed in Georgia...and right before Christmas!

So now I can share my porch with you all decked out in snow!

At the heart of it all is this wonderful galvanized stocking...a fabulous clearance sale find from Bed, Bath and Beyond. I knew you would want to know! ;-) I filled it with frosty greenery and berries and tied it up with a red velvet ribbon.

Surrounding the door is a realistic evergreen garland decorated with red ornaments that make me think of berries.

On one side of the door I have arranged a sap bucket filled with more greenery, icy twigs and berries. Two lanterns are tied with more of the same, one filled with red and silver ornaments and the other holding one of the fun STAR-SHAPED CANDLES that I shared with you earlier.

On the other side is another grouping of lanterns and another sap bucket. It's pretty simple this year. My porch just kept telling me less is more. And that's not easy for a more is more person like me! lol And just in case you are wondering, I keep my blinds open a bit so that little furry faces can look out and see the snow, too!

And here it is! Isn't it just perfect that snow arrived just in time to become the star of my porch?

And stay tuned because my dining room is next!

Remember to pin it!

  1. How lucky you are to have snow so early in the month. It must really get you in the mood for decorating!

  2. We’re still waiting for snow in Ohio. Glad you are enjoying it, and your porch is beautiful just like everything you do. Merry Christmas!

  3. It is so pretty! We in Athens just missed the snow and my Grands were disappointed, me not so much! Hugs!

  4. That galvinized stocking from Bed Bath and Beyond is err, beyond fantastic! I immediately went to the BBB web site and ordered it! Will be using your styling tip with the ribbon, too -- thanks for the great inspiration!

  5. Oh, and meanwhile here on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, we still have no snow. Shades of the movie, White Christmas!

  6. This surprise snow dumped 10 inches at my house in N GA. It is beautiful but I'm ready for it to melt now. Your porch is lovely.

  7. Love Love your porch and thank you for sharing

  8. Your porch was already lovely for Christmas, but the snow makes it that much more beautiful.

  9. Beautiful front porch and yes our first time in Georgia to have an early snow

  10. Everything looks beautiful all dressed with SNOW!!! What a surprise for Georgia! We got some too but I didn't get any pictures. LOVE that galvanized stocking and how you filled it!

  11. Hi Debbie! I absolutely love your front porch and how it's not overdone but has just the right touches. That stocking is the most adorable accent! Now, all I need is some snow drifts on my front bushes to complete the effect. (We're not likely to get the real thing here in Houston!) - Crissy @ First Day of Home

  12. What a special treat to have snow! Makes your decor even more special!
