Christmas Front Porch

craftsman-front-porch-2 Well!  We can’t take a Christmas tour of practically every room in my house without including the front porch now can we?  I think not.  And yes!  It’s another fun Christmas tour so aside from my Christmas porch, you’ll also be able to check out other beautiful Christmas porches.  Because who doesn’t love a porch decked for the holidays!?  Anyone?  I think not.  :)

Chris from Just a Girl is hosting a week long “Welcome Home Tour” and I’m thrilled to be joining in the fun.  I’ve met Chris and can honestly say that aside from being such a talented blogger, she is also incredibly down to earth and kind.  And funny!  Like really funny.  She always makes me laugh and I love her personality!  If you are visiting today from Katie at Bower Power welcome!  You can see other rooms I’ve shared that are decorated for Christmas in this post.  And my formal living room here that wasn’t included in that round-up. :)

For today.. on with the porch!
(*affiliate links used) craftsman-front-porch-christmas So.. for my beloved regular readers this porch decor probably looks pretty familiar!  Because it’s the same as last year.  Mostly.

christmas-porch-with-trees-and-presents I had plans to mix things up.  I really did.  But then the inside of my house sort of took over.. and my little trees were calling my name.  They said “Use us!!  You are short on time and we are still lovely!” craftsman-christmas-porch-sunny-side-up So I caved and said “yes.. yes you are!  And ok.” :) christmas-front-porch-green-topshop-coat Then I put on my favorite new coat I recently shared in my latest fashion/pajama party  post and knew I’d made the right decision keeping my porch the same this year.  Cold weather (cold to us!) + a cute new coat + my favorite porch Christmas trees = a happy me. :)  And when mom’s happy.. everyone is happy.  Am I right?  Of course I am. ;)porch-christmas-trees There is one minor change.  Last year I used my white lanterns and filled them with ornaments. christmas-red-striped-rug This year I used my new black lanterns with candles in them that I bought for my Halloween Porch.  See!  I DID mix things up.  And here you thought my porch was same old.  ;) front-porch-bench I also left out my bench from my Halloween porch and added my potted trees, some poinsettias and a friendly little deer pillow who greets our visitors. craftsman-porch-sunny-side-up craftsman-christmas-porch-decor craftsman-front-porch-sunny-side-up-2 mudroom-dutch-door snowman-rug black-porch-lanterns coastal-craftsman-home-sunny-side-up It’s simple, but I love it. sunny-side-up-craftsman-porch-night-lights Especially at night! christmas-front-porch-sunny-side-up craftsman-porch-decor-sunny-side-up black-dutch-door My little mudroom tree glowing through our dutch door takes the cake. :) white-molding-craftsman-style-sunny-side-up sunny-side-up-craftsman-home-christmas-lights So that’s it!  My new/old Christmas porch.  And the outside of my house decked for the holidays.  I hope you enjoyed it! Again. ;)

  1. Wow, Erin! I know I’ve said it before, but your home is so gorgeous, every inch of it! You are so talented in many ways! I think I need to hire you for my decorating needs! I’m not joaking! The outside of your home decked out for Christmas is amazing. I love the traditional red and white. Can’t forget that little mud room door, it’s so sweet! Thank you for letting me into your Holiday Home. I know I’ll be coming back to it! xo!

    1. You always say the sweetest things Nancie! I’m so happy you like my house decorated for the holidays! I wish I could have you over to really let you inside. :) I love the red and white too.. it has always been my favorite! Thank you so much for your kind words! I’m so happy you like it all! xo

  2. Lovely porch! Hey, don’t apologize for not changing things up too much. If it worked so well last year (and it did), you could just say you started a tradition with the way you decorate your porch and you don’t want to mess with tradition. :) Don’t mess with perfection! I love all the decor and how homey and welcoming your porch looks. Thanks so much for sharing, Erin! Have a happy day! :)

  3. So pretty, Erin! I love all the touches. Do you guys hang your own lights on the house or hire it out? It looks terrific. We are always too lazy to do any lights. xxoo

    1. Thank you Pam! We always hung our own lights until we moved into this house 3 years ago. The roof line is so steep and dangerous. Our builder actually told us to not ever attempt to hang lights on that roof by ourselves. So we hire the roof out and then I hang lights/garland on the balcony and decorate the porch. :) xo

  4. Erin, your posts are beautiful and fun! Have you ever or can you share how you store your decor go each season (?) It’s tricky to store pillows and things as they take up so much space! Are you a bin girl? A bag girl? A drawer girl? Thanks!

  5. The first time I came over and saw your little trees (last year), my eyes grew two sizes. Love at first site!!! I was coming on here to look at your gallery wall but had to stop at this cute post first. :)

    1. Oh you are too kind Ann! I love that you love those little trees so much. So fun hearing from you on my blog! I had a total flash back to our early days… ha! ;) Love you! xo

  6. Oh my! I can’t keep up with your posts these day, Erin! I love the porch decors. My motto is if it ain’t broke then don’t fix it. So I’m glad you used the same trees. Do the trees come apart for storing? These would be great for my future plans if I can find them. Can you share where you bought the trees also?

    1. Thank you Debbie! I know.. I was posting fast and furious for a while there. :) These trees do come apart! I store them in the boxes they came in. They were from Home Depot. Hope that helps! xo
