Traditional Green and Red Front Porch for Christmas

Looking for holiday front porch decorating ideas?  Bring some classic charm with frosted garland and wreaths and some bright Christmas red ribbon.

Thanksgiving is just days away, and since most of my readers tell me they begin decorating for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving, I wanted to offer you some decorating ideas before the fact.  And it doesn’t hurt that Christmas decorating is probably my favorite thing to do all year. 😉

I’m excited today, too, to join my sweet friend Ashley from Cherished Bliss who has rounded up a great group of bloggers for a room-by-room Christmas tour.  If you’re visiting from Live Laugh Rowe, welcome!!  Be sure to visit the next stop on the tour at the end of the post for more entryway eye candy.

This year, I was inspired by the sweet little red berries growing in my yard right now.

I wanted simple little touches of red along with lots of greenery.

I found these frosted garland for an amazing price, and it was a perfect bonus that they have those same little red berries.

The ribbon was $4 for 50 ft at Walmart.  The only trick was taming the wind while I was trying to photograph it. 😉

I also painted these planters white (something that’s been on my to-do list for a while now)… And I’ll have a tutorial for you later on how I made both of the wreaths, but in the meantime, I’ll just let you enjoy all the pretty today.  More sources are at the end!

    Thanks!
