For our porch, I went with a rustic and casual style using vintage items and greenery.
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.
Some wrapped packages sit in my old ironstone wash bowl. A few sprigs of Christmas tree trimmings dress them up just a little.
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.
An old plaid throw blanket adds a little color, and the vintage wooden crate is a fun addition to the table as well.
SHOP THE LOOK
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.
I made a bow with some festive plaid ribbon and attached it to the wreath for some color.
Hemlock, cedar, and juniper make up most of the wreath. I love the tiny pine cones on the hemlock branches.
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.
The scarf, ice skates, and sled make it look like winter here, although we’ve really not had much cold weather yet.
And my snow boots are ready and waiting for the fluffy white stuff to fall from the sky, if that ever does happen.
