Ever since we had our back porch built a few years ago I have really enjoyed decking it out for the holidays. This year, however, I wanted to try something a little different.
Leaving most of the Christmas porch decorations packed away in boxes and all of the blue and white decor that I have been collecting in place.
As much as I love the traditional red and green Christmas colors I am enjoying how the pine and garland look with the pops of blue.
Keeping the holiday decor simple, colors softer and more neutral also helps to tie the porch in with the rest of the house.
The porch may not look as festive as year’s past but I think it still feels cozy which is always on the top of my list of priorities when it comes to decorating.
As well as using what I already have around the house as much as possible.
And that’s exactly what I did this year. I also freshened up the look of the wreath and centerpiece by removing the red berries and bows.
The only big recent purchase was the black wool throw which will stay on the porch through the winter months.
And several yards of striped ribbons to help dress things up.
It took me several tries on different days to get some decent pictures of the porch. It has been so cloudy here but thankfully the sun did finally come out in the knick of time.
I really hope you have been enjoying this year’s Christmas home tour.
With another beautiful sunny day in the forecast, I am planning to snap a few more pictures today in hopes of squeezing in one last part of the tour before Christmas day arrives.
I will also be sharing a few snapshots from around the house on Instagram.
It brings me so much joy to share our home with you and I want to say thank you and to let you know how very much I appreciate you taking time out of your day when you stop by for a visit.
