A porch filled with updated and festive Christmas porch ideas for a welcoming entry to your home.
This time of year sees a lot of visitors coming to Worthing Court, so decorating my front porch for Christmas is when I pull out all the stops and create the most welcoming entry that I can!
I’m so excited to be participating in the annual Christmas Porches Tour, hosted by Amy from Atta Girl Says! If you’re in need of outdoor Christmas decorating inspiration, you’ve come to the right place! Scroll down below for links to more than a dozen Christmas porches.
When trying to come up with Christmas porch ideas this year, I let the Christmas tree in my family room set the tone for my outdoor decor. What??? Well, anytime that I decorate my porch for a season or holiday, I want all of the decorations to flow throughout my home, starting at the front porch.
The trees in my family room (yes, there are multiple!) this year are filled with black and white buffalo check ribbon and ornaments, red and white striped ribbon, lots of eucalyptus and pops of red everywhere.
So, it was only natural that the wreath hanging on my front door, along with the rest of the Christmas porch decorations, be a reflection of what you’ll find on the inside.
This easy wreath was made by poking a variety of stems between the branches of a grapevine wreath, with some floral wire added for support, and the addition of a beautiful, over the top bow. This is probably my most favorite Christmas wreath that I’ve ever made!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you might have been a part of the great debate about where I should place the bows on the topiaries. The vote was split close to half between the tip-top or on the front of each one.
It finally occurred to me that the best place for the bow would be tucked tightly underneath the foliage of each one. This looks so much better than placing the bows anywhere else!
In addition to the topiaries, I added baskets filled with greenery, my favorite lanterns and a few red Christmas baubles. Mini Christmas trees with tiny bows complete the display on each side of my door.
The festive red, white and black theme is even carried down to my new welcome mats. Aren’t they so fun?!?!
You can find links to both of these mats (and more) in my Favorite Christmas Finds Amazon shop. While you’re there, be sure to check out the Christmas Entertaining shop and the Christmas Storage shop too!
Our front porch is a wide and deep Southern style porch, which I decorated very simply on each end. You’ll find us sitting in the Adirondack gliders quite often in warmer weather to watch the dogs chase squirrels.
