We brought Christmas to our front porch! Just wanted to show you. Nothing fancy. Just cleaned the steps. Hung the lights. Strung the garland. Bought a Charlie Brown Tree. Done. And had a handsome, helpful husband by my side. Just wish there was a skiff of snow! Just a pretty blanket of snow.
This year I used all fresh garlands and tree from Home Depot. I had the baskets I had found at Home Goods and since our porch is covered, I thought they might do just fine. Especially since we have had that hanging door basket on our door for well over a year and no weather damage.
Our front door is painted in Coral Perfection from Sherwin Williams. Still loving the pink. I considered painting it black, dark gray or a rich green. But can’t bring myself to paint it….yet.
Added a bunch of fresh greens to the door basket. I am sure there are many of you who could go to their yard and clip some greenery for their basket! I did venture out to my local Home Depot for that as well. (Our door basket is from here, some have been able to buy it online and pick it up at their local store. Our bells are older from Target, I found these cute bell!)
I could have power washed around the windows! But that is what the snow is for! I LOVE having the lighted Christmas wreaths hanging over our front windows (find wreaths here).
