You may think it’s a bit too early to start your Christmas decorating, but it’s never to early to start gathering ideas!  Especially, if you have a few challenging areas around your home, such as a small porch.

Each one of these featured small porches presented challenges because of their size, but a little outside-of-the box thinking resulted in small porches that are big on Christmas style!  Whether you have a big porch, small porch or just a door with no porch at all, you’ll be inspired by these holiday styling ideas.

If your porch isn’t very wide, try flanking your front door with pencil trees in narrow urns.  It there isn’t room for two urns, one will do!

Is there anything prettier or more welcoming than a vibrant red front door?  It will make your small porch pop and automatically looks festive at Christmas!

If you have room for a small chest or table, it’s the perfect spot to add a few special decor touches.

If your porch is so small that it doesn’t have much floor space, go vertical with an old door turned into a chalkboard.

Another option for going vertical – an old screen or window.  Such a pretty place to display a Christmas wreath.

Christmas decorations don’t have to actually be on the porch.  Consider adding decorations leading up to your small porch instead of actually on it.

Don’t forget about your back porch too!  Screen porches and decks make great spots for adding holiday cheer like these adorable twig deers.

  1. Love your front porch ideas. Our porch gets a lot of wind and snow, so I have to be careful about what to put on it.

  2. Thank you for this post! My front porch is so tiny, I rarely bother to do any decorating for it, but you have inspired me!

  3. Thank you for sharing! My porch is small, but now I have a few ideas to make it look beautiful this holiday season.

    Oh my what beautiful porches … I love waking up to beautiful decor and you are amazing!!! Thank you for inspiring us. May you and your family have a blessed Thanksgiving… God bless

  5. Beautiful inspiration for my small porch! Thank you so much!

  6. Great ideas! I’ll be pulling Christmas decor out right after Thanksgiving. I will head to my porch

  7. Hi Suzy, thanks for these ideas! My porch is really just a small step that is also blocked by a metal door frame. After the holidays, that is my #1 thing I’m changing about my entry. Until then, I am planning to have a small planter with greens and a lantern I think. Awesome ideas for inspiration!

  8. Love it all! Many great ideas from which to draw inspiration!!

  9. I love all of these porches. I was recently shopping and I was looking at Christmas pillows, not knowing where I would out them. Your post made me realize I have two chairs on my front porch that would be perfect for those pillows. I had only been thinking of where to put them inside!

  10. I love all the wonderful ideas. I just can’t wait to start the decorating! Happy Thanksgiving!

  11. Fun ideas. Thanks Suzy! Blessed Thanksgiving!

  12. I love all the different ideas you shared with us! I have plans for a different look this year on my front porch and you just started the wheels turning!

  13. Love these ideas! Our porch is fairly large, but empty! These ideas look doable for a new-to-us house!

  14. Thank you so much for including my porch in your collection! All the others are so inspiring – my head is swimming with ideas right now 🙂

  15. Such pretty porches! They inspire me to get busy and do something with mine. Merry Christmas!

  16. All of these porches are bigger than mine lol. My porch is also hidden by two metal columns, so really all you see is a little bit of concrete and the front door. I tried putting garland around the front door last year but it got in the way of using the door as a door. We couldn’t open and shut it without garland getting in the way. So that came down after a few days. Then i tried wrapping the metal columns in garland but the wind took care of those, they were either in my yard or fallen in a pile at the bottom. Not sure how to keep that from falling. I need help! 😂
