Welcome to my front porch, decorated for Christmas!

Rudy is always ready to say welcome! He loves having guests visit, so let’s start this tour.

Front Porch Planters

This year I wanted the DIY faux galvanized planters to be a focal point of the porch Christmas decorations. My husband and I were inspired to make the planters last year to look like the antique European olive barrel that we use for our Christmas tree.

I began by filling them with fresh cedar and magnolia leaves from the front yard. Then added, pinecones and berries to brighten the arrangement.

Finally, I added a large white jingle bell to the planters. Last year I hung the bells from the porch light fixtures. You can see last year’s tour, Farmhouse Front Door Christmas Decoration Ideas.

The Porch Shutters Decorated for Christmas

Because the DIY Shutters are a backdrop for the planters, I wanted to compliment the arrangement with greenery swag covered with red bells and red berries.

In addition, a red metal bow was added to the light fixture, which adds a more festive color to the shutters.

Vintage Porch Decorations for Christmas

To complete the planter and shutter vignettes, additional holiday decorations were added.

A vintage sleigh and Christmas stocking are next to one of the planters.

A DIY Christmas Y’all sign is propped against the door jam to complete this side of the french doors.

Then, on the other side of the door is a thrift store red wagon which is the perfect planter for the mini Christmas tree.

In addition, a snowman and snowman pillow cuddle on a plaid throw blanket in the Kennedy rocker.

Address Sign

Then just below the DIY Address sign over the french doors is a simple pine garland with pinecones and red berries added to match the greenery and red berries found on the swags and planters.

Cozy Rockers

The front porch is filled with cozy rocking chairs and throw blankets to encourage porch sitting even on cooler evenings.

Another small Christmas tree in a vintage potato chip tin is located beside one of the rocking chairs.

Front Porch Rugs

Because the front porch is so large, I opt for a larger-than-normal rug at the front doors. The neutral rug is perfect to pair with a smaller Happy Holidays Christmas rug.

At the other end of the porch is a cozy seating area just off the master bedroom.

Rudy considers this his territory also. LOL

Rudy welcomes you to the farmhouse porch seating area with swing and vintage wicker chairs.

Each year I like to decorate the porch swing with a garland, and each year, it is different. This year, the porch swing is draped with real cedar garland and twinkle lights.

In addition, the swing is filled with a cozy throw blanket and several pillows. A few small, minimally decorated trees also surround the porch swing.

Fortunately, the porch swing overlooks the ponds and is another favorite spot for watching the sun go down.

Next to the master bedroom french door is a vintage cabinet filled with thrift store clay pots and vintage shiny brite ornaments. Additional fresh greenery, a sweet angle holding ornaments, and a thrifted wreath fill the porch corner.

Vintage primitive cabinets hold vintage shiny brites, thrifted clay pots and vintage copper from thrift stores.

Finally, after taking several photos, I felt the porch swing needed an additional touch. Being a more is better kind of girl, I decided to add some repurposed white jingle bells to the cedar garland.
