As you decorate your home for the holidays, one of the biggest areas to add holiday cheer is your front porch. Your front porch is an inviting aspect of your curb appeal, and it can really set the tone for the holiday season. Whether you have a large or small porch, there are many ways to spruce up this area and add an extra festive touch.
1. Add a Christmas Tree
Nothing ties together the look of Christmas than a Christmas tree. Whether you choose to go real or artificial, a Christmas tree can add holiday cheer to your front porch. The best part is that you can choose the appropriately sized tree to fit even the smallest front porch. Decorate your tree from top to bottom with your favorite ornaments—and this is also the perfect opportunity to carry over the theme of your indoor tree.
2. Go Green with Evergreen
If you enjoy the natural look of evergreens during the holidays, this may be the perfect holiday pick-me-up for your front porch. Consider adding an evergreen wreath to your front door, which symbolizes strength and revitalization. In addition to adding a wreath, you can also add a large evergreen garland to frame your front door. Weave twinkling lights into the garland for extra holiday sparkle.
3. Go Bold with Red Bows and Poinsettias
Everyone knows that red and green are the traditional colors of Christmas. If you’re looking to go bold this holiday season, decorate your front porch with red ribbons, red bows, and poinsettias. You can use your evergreen garland to add red ribbon or even weave it into another natural material such as grapevine.
Next, strategically place poinsettias near your front door and other areas of your porch. This will bring a bright pop of color and holiday cheer for the Christmas season.
4. Don’t Forget Your Doormat
While garlands, Christmas wreaths, and red poinsettias make a statement on any front porch, don’t forget about your doormat. It’s a small detail that can make a big impact on your front porch. Choose a festive and colorful holiday doormat that ties together the look and feel of your front porch.
5. Pick a Theme
If you’re looking for a fun way to decorate your porch that appeals to children, consider centering your décor on a theme this year. Consider a theme such as Santa Claus and his reindeer, the Grinch, snowmen, and even Disney characters. Your home will make children’s eyes light up with excitement, which is the real magic of Christmas.
