85 degrees today on the coast! Time to head to the beach? Or decorate our porch for the holidays?
I say both! But porch first.
We are feeling all sorts of festive around here now that I’ve turned our porch into a mini forest! I have to get my winter fix one way or another. :)
This really was the easiest Christmas porch and didn’t take long at all to set up. I put a few command hooks on the ledge above the door and then layered garland across the top. (Tip: Wait 30-60 min to add the garland after you place the command hooks. I’ve learned the hard way NOT to attach items right after you put the hooks on! The command hooks need some time to really stick and secure where you’ve placed them.)
I pulled out my long time favorite faux Cypress trees, placed them in baskets to add some texture and then added smaller trees around them.
You might remember this fun plaid red rug that I’ve had in my dining room during previous holiday months. I bought a smaller size for the porch and love it! What better to layer with the crown jewel.. my fa la la mat. ;)
I hung bells from the door with a wreath hook and called it done! Come on over! We are ready to welcome friends and family for the holiday.
And then all head to the beach.
*I shared a quick video here of me styling this porch if it’s helpful!
