Classic Christmas Front Porch and Entryway

I am so excited today to partner with some amazing ladies for another holiday home tour!

Last year, I partnered with Lynch Creek Farm for my Christmas front porch (which you can see HERE) and I am excited for you to see this year’s Christmas porch featuring another gorgeous wreath from them.

This is one of my favorite home tours to join in each year because all the bloggers are so talented so make sure you check them out at the bottom of this post.

This year, I decided to decorate my front porch and entryway in a classic Christmas color scheme. Since this is our first Christmas in our new home, I wanted a very traditional look for when you enter into our home.

As you can see, we had exterior holiday lighting hung up this year and it was definitely worth it. These guys did an amazing job and saved us a huge hassle with our pitched roof line.

One of the spots we had them do was the arch around our entryway. It is just gorgeous lit up at night!

I wanted that big pop of red on the porch so I selected this wreath from Lynch Creek Farm this year. I love the red ornaments on it. The wreath smells absolutely delicious when you walk in the door!

I wanted a little pattern out here so I found this really cute accent rug. I think it is an indoor mat but honestly I just use these out here for a season and typically pick inexpensive ones like this that it doesn’t bother me if it doesn’t last longer than that. This one is for only $20 which I thought was a steal.

I have had these black lanterns and you saw me use them HERE in the spring. I just tied some red velvet ribbon on these to pop the color from the wreath and accent rug.

I grabbed these cute little pots of greenery ( I wish I knew what they were called!) from Home Depot the other day. The pots were so cute that I just left them in them.

This sign from Aimee Weaver Designs is just everything! I felt like a kid at Christmas opening her beautiful package. It is hand painted on reclaimed barnwood. Aimee has so many beautiful holiday pieces but also gorgeous keep sake ones as well. So be sure to checkout her shop.

When you open the front door, this is the view you see. We have a narrow entry but it flows into the stairway area and then just beyond is our gallery wall into the kitchen area.

For this reason, I love having this lucite console table in here. It feels light and airy, yet gives me a place for some table lamps.

Dress up the entry with classic Christmas décor like a beautiful garland and red and white ribbon. Layered garland creates a fuller look. Add in berries to a vase.

I kept my blue runner in here and I love the beautiful richness next to the white and red accents.

I found this wreath at Tuesday Morning and just wrapped red velvet ribbon around it and attached it with a command strip. I shopped a few similar faux wreaths like this for you below so you can get the same look.

I decided on this gorgeous garland with berries (similar) and then added another faux cypress garland to it to make it chunkier. I think garlands look better when they are full looking.

I am loving this rosemary garland and juniper one. They would be so pretty together.

Berry Garland (similar) | Cypress Garland (similar) | Red & White Stripe Ribbon | Red Velvet Ribbon

I just intertwined the 2 garlands and then tied them together in the corners with the red and white stripped ribbon and the red velvet ribbon. I also weaved through some little fairy lights so at night this all lights up.

One of the best things you can do when decorating is to create levels with your decor. I love to do this especially with cake plates or wrapped boxes.

I have a bunch of them in white and just used the taller one in the middle.

I got these cute little lighted houses this year at Tuesday Morning for only $14.99. They are adorable and are adorned with glitter so they sparkle!

For the center I added in a cluster of flameless candles that are controlled with a remote. Makes it so much easier to turn them on and off. I used the same candles on our Christmas mantle this year and you can see that HERE.

I sprinkled each cake plate with this sparkling snow and it is such a pretty effect. I love to do this on little displays like this.

I had some left over berry stems from the Christmas tree in the stairway and placed them in my vases on the bottom shelf. It definitely needed this bold color pop here so the bottom shelf didn’t disappear from the garland.

I added another cluster of trees and a candle to the bottom level on top of my design books. I wanted to add more of the sparkling snow here but Sasha our 1 year old cat might have destroyed it.

  1. Love your front entry, so beautiful. Your door is stunning with that amazing wreath and the greenery and lanterns create the perfect welcoming touch.

  2. Everything is gorgeous. The plant on the front porch is live rosemary. Depending on where you live it could be planted after Christmas. Enjoy!
