Today I’ll be sharing how I’ve decorated our front porch for Christmas this year! Here’s our blue and white Christmas porch!
I’ve been a bit slow to get moving on my front porch decorations this year, which is funny because last year I had it all done up ridiculously early. I think I was suffering from a little bit of a lack of inspiration this time around, but as soon as I saw other front porches in our town starting to look all cheerful and Christmassy, my motivation definitely came back. As far as finding inspiration goes, I really just needed to take a quick walk around our property and I really found all the inspiration that I needed! I love how it all came together. With any further dilly-dallying, here’s our Christmas front porch 2020!
Simple and Nature-Inspired Front Porch Decor
I thought I’d maybe grab a few things, just as a base for my porch decor from around the property, but I was surprised at how close to finished everything looked once I had everything I gathered in place. All of these natural elements just compliment one another so perfectly.
I found some cedar, what I think is white pine (maybe?), some extra branches off our Christmas tree, some phragmites from down by the creek, some red dogwood branches, and some dried hydrangeas.
I pulled out my “birch in a box” from last year and re-used it, along with my existing porch planters from my fall mums.
The Finishing Touches on my Christmas Front Porch 2020
I did run out to our local garden centre and grab a few extra things to add in. I picked up some magnolia and some more of the same blue ribbon that I used in the living room as well.
Of course, in my opinion, an extra bow here and there is never a bad idea. 🙂
The piece de resistance, of course, is this handmade wreath from one of my favourite local flower farmers Longwoods Flower Farm. She made it custom just for me and it’s her own version of my “blue and white” theme. I just love it obviously. It has a base of blue spruce and then it’s accented with dried white flowers from her farm this summer as well as some eucalyptus and a few other little bits of texture. I can’t get enough of it.
Overall, I love the wintery forest effect we have going on leading up to our door. It’s amazing what you can pull together when you start scrounging things up from the banks of the creek! 🙂
