Our porch looks similar to what I’ve done in past years, but I added a
couple of new things.

I’m showcasing my vintage white wicker table by adding magnolia, holly, and
nandina clippings. And I added a pretty
wooden lantern
with some red satin ribbon attached to it to anchor the branches.

There’s a story behind this table. In our old house in Nashville, we had an
elderly lady that lived across the stree and she had this table and a pretty
wicker armchair on her front porch. I would see it every time I went to the
mailbox or outside at all.

When she moved to an assisted living facility I told her grandaughter, who I
actually went to school with, that I’d love to buy those pretty wicker items
if they ever wanted to sell them.

Well, they had a big estate sale and I got those two items plus some
beautiful alabaster lamps that I now have in our
master bedroom. And I always think of Ms. Betty when I see them. Her father was a
doctor back in the 1920’s and travelled all over the globe. She had some
very nice things.

Back to the present, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do for this year’s
porch decor and did all of this a bit impulsively. But I think it turned out
pretty well.

Fortunately we have several bushes and trees in the yard that are perfect
for clipping and using for Christmas decor. The
wood lantern
is from my shop, and I just added a bit of greenery, a
battery operated candle, and a pretty satin ribbon.

Over near the center of the porch I have a vintage basket that I found at a local sale. It stays here all year. I added a faux
wreath with red berries
for a holiday look.

And on our white adirondack chairs I added
plaid throw blanket, some
wooden snowflakes, and my favorite little
white enamel snow gear mugs

The red plaid throw blanket is one I found a couple of years ago. I’m kind of addicted to plaid
blankets at the holidays. You can see how I used them in several areas of
our house this year here → Cozy Christmas Home Tour

A little church made from salvaged materials and a
small stoneware tree
add a bit of Christmas to the little accent table.

Next to the door I placed a
small rustic Alpine Christmas tree
in a vintage stoneware crock in my dad’s old
radio flyer wagon. This also stays on the porch all year but looks especially happy at
Christmas. 

The
vintage snow shoes
are a new addition to the porch this year. A friend of mine was selling some
of her collections and I happily bought these from her.

I always have so much fun decorating this area and love seeing it each time
I come home.

  1. I look forward to seeing your Christmas porch each year. My eagle eye immediately spotted your snowshoes and I wasn't surprised when I read that they are a new addition for this year. I love them and they look great behind your red wagon that is so beautifully decorated. Anyone coming to your home or passing by is sure to admire how nice your porch looks decorated for Christmas.

    1. Thank you so much, Paula. I've always loved old snowshoes but they aren't easy to find around here. I was so glad to get these when my friend was downsizing her stash of decor.

    1. Thank you, Marlene! The porch is definitely ready for Christmas now! Can't say the same for all of the house though.

  2. I always love seeing how you decorate your porch, Angie! Love the red wagon. I just got my dad's old 50's wagon and am so excited to decorate with it:) And I'm actually repurposing our old childhood one, so I can enjoy it a couple different ways;) Pinned!

    1. Thanks, Lora. I can't wait to see how you decorate with your wagons! You always make everything look amazing.

  3. I’m glad I hopped over to get the story of how you acquired that pretty wicker table. Love all the details including that old tobacco basket with the wreath inside, your dad’s wagon, and the snowshoes. It’s so awesome and welcoming.

  4. Such a sweet story about Ms Betty. You’re the perfect steward for her wicker pieces. I bet your neighbors love seeing your porch decor as much as you enjoyed hers. I love all the holiday touches!

  5. I LOVE Miss Betty's table! Such a great story about how it came to live at your home. Your porch is always one of my favorites each holiday season!

    It was fun hopping with you- have a wonderful holiday season!

  7. Angie, what a wonderful Christmas porch you decorated. I love that you were able to purchase the wicker table that you’re neighbor had. I am obsessed with the oversized tobacco basket and those adorable Winter mugs. It looks like the perfect spot to sit with a cup of cocoa!
