Decorating Your Porch with Holiday Cheer!You love to bring fun, seasonal flair to your home each winter. But decorations don't have to be indoors only! Having a jolly entryway design helps you celebrate winter and get into the vibe of the holidays. The extra curb appeal makes your home stand out, and the cozy feel of the decor appeals to your visiting loved ones. Here are four ways to elevate your porch decor this winter.
1. Porch PotsMany local florists prepare seasonal arrangements, often dubbed 'porch pots', highlighting winter greenery for our holiday entryway! Pots of poinsettia are a Christmas classic, as are arrangements of colorful winterberry and fragrant pine branches. Beautiful bunches of white and blue or red and green are common color schemes that quickly brighten up the space. For a vibrant splash that contributes to your community, shop local and pick up some outdoor winter pots for your porch decor.
2. Miniature Holiday DecorationsMiniature, outdoor Christmas trees add charm to any porch. Fresh or artificial trees look beautiful, and can be decorated with lights, ornaments, and garlands, making them unique to your family. Consider setting out several trees of varying heights to bring even more interest to your entry. Other winter holiday decor can be used on your porch to add fun, too! Use an outdoor coffee or patio table to display your most festive menorah or star statue. Hang a variety of ornamental dreidels from the edge of the roof along with some lights. For all-inclusive decorations, snowflake ornaments or yard stakes can be found in many stores, and real or artificial greenery garlands look lovely draped over railings or over your door trim.
3. Light it upTwinkly string lights are a classic addition to your porch decor. The soft illumination brightens your home and lightens the mood across your neighborhood. Who doesn't love walking around and admiring all the holiday light displays? Depending on how much time and energy (and access to ladders) you have, you can localize all the lights to your porch or decorate the entire front of your house and yard. Lights look beautiful simply wrapped around railings or pillars (maybe interspersed with that greenery garland we mentioned earlier?) or neatly lining the fascia all along your home. Choose from a classic white strand, or icicle look-alikes, or add nostalgia with multi-colored bulbs. maintaining the privacy you need. Our inserts are also energy-efficient so you don't have to worry about driving up the utility bill.
