I finally took the Christmas tree and garland off our front porch. Many of you told me that Christmas was still on your porch too! It is a tricky season for decorating it, depending on where you live! In Connecticut you can’t find any real plants. Luckily I had a few plants that stayed alive through fall and December.
I still love our front door color, Salmon River Run from Sherwin Williams. I found a wreath that I really like. Normally I am not a fan of faux green wreaths, but this one is pretty! I did add some sprigs of fresh eucalyptus to liven and thicken it up.
The planters I have had for awhile, I added the real greenery into the one planter and then stuck more fresh eucalyptus to make it look a lot more full! The boxwood has been in that pot from the fall and doing well!
I also kept the tall metal house on the porch with the logs in it, still looks pretty for winter! Combined with the greens, we now we have a cozy winter porch!
Front Door Wreath Ideas-
Olive Eucalyptus Leaf with Berry Wreath (with extra fresh eucalyptus)
Front door wreath idea…but it’s not a wreath! I have done baskets before on the front door, but this narrow basket works really well hanging. I put fresh eucalyptus in the basket, which will dry beautifully!
This is a pretty wreath option too, the white berries still give a winter feel. What do you think? Ready to tackle your front porch post-holiday?
