12 Days of Christmas Day 10: The Holiday Porch

The front porch is always the most exciting part of the house to decorate. It is the part that tells me friends and neighbors that I appreciate them and that I am a positive participating adult in the world! I hope that my porch extends holiday greetings of the most happy kind to all who pass by!

I don't have a tutorial for you today, just a  walk around my porch and a little about my house.  My husband and I built our house in 2013 after downsizing and moving a city that had been our home for 20 years. It was a hard thing to do but I was ready for the change. 

The house is built in the Craftsman style, with a small wrap around porch. We are situated where we can see the lake from our porch and it is our favorite spot in the mornings. 

I did the greens myself this year!
This darling Santa has been in my family for 20 years.


We love this spot for morning coffee.

Our yellow door is a neighborhood icon.

  1. We are also porch sitting coffee drinkers in the morning. It's such a pleasant way to begin the day. Your Christmas porch is so warm festive and welcoming. Love that you have memories with the Santa and that 'hello'on your door is so awesome.

  8. Look how gorgeous your front stoop is decorated! I have done nothing, in fact, my pumpkins are still on my stoop! We had 60 degree weather up until last week and I didn't want to toss them yet -

  9. I love your porch! So festive and welcoming! Mine is boring...just a Christmas wreath is all. Oh well. Maybe it's not to late to make mine as festive. Thanks for the idea!

  10. Your porch looks fabulous. I love the lantern within the Greens, and the Santa is fantastic. I failed and didn't get my porch done or lights done this year. Maybe next year

  16. I just love the Santa on your front porch. It's so unique and a definite eye catcher. It's always so much fun to see how others decorate their doors. We have a neighbor who decorates her mailbox for every holiday and I always get a kick out of seeing what she has it dressed up.

  17. Your porch came out so cute! We haven't done our front porch yet, but plan on it this weekend. The back porch is where we spend most of out time though.

  18. I am such a fan of back porch sitting and coffee drinking. My front porch is too small for anyone to enjoy.

  19. I love it! So festive and ready for the holidays. I love that it’s bit too cluttered and looks really good! Wish I had a back porch to do this to! - Jeanine

  20. I love your decorations! I haven't decorated my porch much as I would love because of some neighborhood mischiefs.

  21. I love your porch! I wish our front porch was big like this. I live in Quebec and we get quite a bit of snow. Adding anything more than Christmas lights would be a bad idea.

  22. I love how well decorated your porch is! I wish I had a porch big enough to decorate so festively.
