I am not a decorator so I had to hire someone to come and decorate my front porch for me last year. Luckily I have the same things I had last year and was able to put it up this year. I am minimal and try not to go overboard when it comes to Christmas Decorations. I am also cheap but I like nice things. This year I want to give you all a peek of my front porch which is not really a real porch but it’s the outside of my door lol. Let’s start with the thing most people want to steal when they come to my front door…..Rudolf
Every time someone comes to my front door they try to take my baby. They can’t have him. I am going to be selfish and won’t even tell you where I got him from you will have to google him. He is the main attraction to my front door
Next is my light up tree. It’s the other highlight of my front porch.
Of course, your front porch or door won’t be complete without a wreath. I love wreaths that don’t look like everyone else. Try to shop on Etsy so that you can be different. You know everyone goes to Target and Walmart for their wreaths try someplace new or have your handmade
My entire front porch setting cost around 80 bucks and these are priceless pieces that can be reused over and over again.
Now let’s talk about some unique trends I’m seeing this holiday season
- A cardbord box Christmas tree….yes I know this is for the laziest of lazy people but hey it works. I would not put this in my living room but maybe a child’s room
- Stockings that aren’t your regular stockings that you can get from anywhere. People are going all out for their stockings this year and you should too
- There are a few things I love from this list….never thought about a Hawaii tree
However, you decorate your front porch just please make sure you don’t do anything tacky. Some people look like they just stand in their front yard and throw things on the porch and hope they land somewhere neat and nice.
Do you decorate the outside of your house for the holidays? Where do you shop besides the normal places like Walmart and Target?
