The Christmas Porch (Holiday Decorating 2013)

Sorry for the silence this week, the site was down for some much needed maintenance.

Today I’m wrapping up my Christmas tour (check out my Holiday Decorating on the right side bar) and showing you all my front porch.  It didn’t change too much from last year.  I tend to keep the same decorations for a few years but switched it up a little bit.  This will be the last year for the red and silver outside.  (Mainly because the red ornaments are starting to fade and are turning a slight shade of orange!)

Here’s a reminder of the front porch last year.  You can also read about it here.

And this is this year’s Christmas porch!

I love how it snowed perfectly just in time for me to take my photos.  It’s so pretty!

I sprayed my monogram silver.  I have a feeling I’ll be spraying my monogram lots!  I also cut down the shrubs in front of the door that I had used for my fall porch.

That’s washi tape on my planters.  I love how pretty the ornaments look on the bottom of the planters.

The ribbons were actually left over from last year’s gift wrapping.  The silver bow is from Target.

The red snow flake pillows are from Target and are probably 4 years old, the black and white one (also from Target) was super popular on all the blogs this summer, in fact I used it this summer too.

The silver bucket actually holds our drinks in the summer.

So that’s it, the only thing bought were the stars that I placed in the tree.  Seriously I feel like I’m always more creative and happier with the final project the less money I spend!
