For our porch, I went with a rustic and casual style using vintage items and greenery.

Lots of pretty ideas for decorating the porch for Christmas.

Going with the theme of this year’s decor, I’m using mostly things I already had on hand mixed in with some natural elements. Here, I added a simple wreath I made a few days ago to our old tobacco basket. A couple of holiday pillows found their way onto our Adirondack chairs for a pop of color.

Wrapped packages are just one of many great Christmas porch decorating ideas on this site.

Some wrapped packages sit in my old ironstone wash bowl. A few sprigs of Christmas tree trimmings dress them up just a little. 

Such sweet little trees! Lots of other great ideas for Christmas porch decorating on this site.

My baby cypress trees look right at home here on the front porch. This is the first year I’ve had these and will be using them from now on. I love the soft texture of their branches.

My mom, my sister, and I all made wreaths a couple of days ago using clippings from my parents’ place. I used a grapevine wreath as a base for the clippings.

Over next to the door, my dad’s old red wagon sets the scene. The red is perfect for Christmas and it’s just the right size for the old olive bucket and a small tree I picked up. I tucked a few holly branches in the tree and in an old watering can for a bit more color.
