Front Porch Decoration Ideas & Tips

Tip #1- Add color & texture for BIG impact

First up, let's take a look at my own front porch all decked out for Christmas. All I did was hang these preserved boxwood wreaths on our front door, add this gorgeous rug for color and texture, add these faux Norfolk pine trees to the planters and set out these large bottle brush trees. It took less than 30 minutes. But the variety of color and textures makes a HUGE impact against our otherwise neutral house.

You can watch a short video of how I decorated our front porch for Christmas below!

When it doubt, you can never go wrong with adding garland and lights around your front door. It's simple but very effective! I love how Ashley of Modern Glam added her own twist to this classic combination.
