Christmas Front Porch

Today I’m sharing our Christmas front porch as part of the Atta Girl Says Christmas front porch tour. Amy hosts this tour every year and her porch is simply amazing. There are seven festive porches on this year’s tour to inspire you. Be sure to visit them all at the bottom of this post.

This is always such a fun tour, even if my theme doesn’t change all that much. I try to use what I have and pretty much just rotate things around year after year or change the ribbons. Let’s see how I decorated our porch for Christmas this year.

My old tobacco basket has been in this spot for years and I always hang a wreath or sign here during the holidays. It’s very rustic and I have no idea how old it is. I bought it from a barn sale many years ago and it’s really old and has sections missing. Lots of character.

For the past few years my mom, sister, and I have made wreaths with clippings from trees and bushes in mom’s yard. This year we were joined by my niece and her little one, and my daughter. We always have lots of fun and the wreaths are perfect for the holidays.

This year we added little vintage bells, and I tucked in a couple of strands of plaid ribbon on mine.

Mom’s old cedar trees were full of little juniper berries. They’re my absolute favorite thing to add to a wreath. Probably because I love blue and green together.

Here’s a view of the entire porch. I didn’t do as much as I have in the past. We’re having all of our windows replaced next week so I’ll have to move most of this out of the way. I didn’t want to create any more work than necessary, lol.

Our white Adirondack chairs have cozy plaid throw blankets and festive throw pillows for the season. I added a wooden lantern and little Christmas tree to the wicker table for a bit of color.

And I borrowed my dad’s old radio flyer wagon from the deck for a jolly little display. I added some vintage birdhouses and an old watering can and red and green vintage garden tools. The vintage snow shoes add to the holiday theme.

If you’re ever visit our home and are very lucky, you might be welcomed by our boy kitty, Wizard. But he’s really shy so that probably won’t happen. He really wanted to come outside and “help” me, but he’s an indoor kitty so he had to watch from the inside. He’s looking out over the new doormat that I picked up at Homegoods yesterday. I love the punch of green on this rug.

Little Lucy is much more friendly and will probably want to get belly rubs from you. She thinks she’s a dog, lol.

Our delivery drivers are well taken care of. I put lots of good treats out in a little plaid fabric basket for them, and they always take something. They work so hard this time of year.

If you want to print this sign for a similar treat basket, I’ve made it available in my free printables library for download. I placed mine inside of a clear page protector and attached it to the basket with clothespins. You could use a picnic basket or plastic tub or whatever you have. Your delivery drivers will love your for it! See my collection of driver goodies and baskets here: Driver Appreciation Basket Kit

  1. I so love that we all find creative ways to reuse and repurpose our Christmas decor for afresh look every year. I love seeing how you decorate your dad’s wagon and the tobacco basket every year. Alonso, I’m so jealous that you got a pic of the cats. Mine watch me decorate but skedaddle when the camera comes out.

  2. I love so many things about your beautiful porch decor, Angie! The fact that you make your own wreaths with items from your mom’s home is wonderful. I never would’ve guessed! I also love the snowshoes and the fact you leave treats for the delivery people.. That’s something I’ve been wanting to do this year too. Pinned!

  3. Love the wreath with the juniper berries inside the tobacco basket! Those are quite common around here as a lot of tobacco used to be grown in this region but I don’t have one myself! How exciting to get new windows!

  4. Love your front porch, it looks so pretty and a nice place to spend some time. Your wreath is so pretty and what a great time you must have had with family while making it. Have a Merry Christmas.

  5. I love your wreath tradition. I’m thinking I may need to start that myself! The cedar berries are so pretty. All of our cedar trees in the woods are full of berries this year and that isn’t the case each year. Your porch is so pretty!

  6. Angie, there are so many beautiful elements that you included in your front porch decor. I love that you leave things for the Amazon delivery people. Your cats are
    just so adorable and I love that you all make the wreaths. That is such a great idea
    Thank you so much for sharing. Merry Christmas!
