If you have been following along on the blog,
you probably saw my Fall decorating on the front porch.
I used straw bales to create the rustic lounger
where my little girls enjoyed the Fall breezes
and beautiful changing leaves.
When we bought this two story,
I fell in love with the covered front porch.
I loved its symmetry.
It is an extension of the inside during the summer.
A place to relax and watch the kids play in the yard.
A peaceful area to read a book and wave to a neighbor walking by.
During the winter months, I tend to stick with simple touches of decorating.
Mostly because it is way too cold to be out on the porch-
stringing tons of lights and getting frustrated with
a constant dripping nose.
Simple pine greenery was tied together. Burlap was used to make a bow.
I painted and distressed two mismatched chairs that I picked up at a yard sale. Lantern chandeliers were given a new life as display cases for figure skates and simple greenery.
Straw bales from the Fall season were reused as tables between the rocking chairs. The bales were dressed up with a few plaid throws to bring the winter and Christmas decor alive.
Window boxes were built out of cedar to tie in with the cedar posts on the front porch. Simple pine greenery cut from trees in the backyard filled the boxes. Browned Limelight hydrangea heads were used as an unexpected element. Soft white lights give just a kiss of Christmas.
How do you decorate your front porch in winter?
