Our Christmas Front Porch ~ Welcome Home Tour

Welcome Christmas, dahoo dahray. Welcome Christmas, Christmas day. And now you'll be singing that song all day, won't you? You're welcome. :) I just wanted to give you a big welcome to our Christmas front porch. I'm joining with some of my blogger friends to show you different ways that we welcome our guests. Not all of our posts are porches. Some are ideas on how to make your guests feel more welcome, and all of the ideas are wonderful.

Ideas for Decorating Your Front Porch for Christmas

I had planned on showing you our entire porch with our white Adirondack chairs and the red stars that are hanging on the wall. But it's been raining here for the past 3 1/2 days and I wasn't able to get all of the photos I wanted. I'll try to add them in a few days, so check back to see more! Go here to see last year's porch and our chairs.

Decorating a porch for Christmas can be as simple as adding a couple of jingle bells or a wreath to the front door. 

Adding a vintage sled and skates with a wintery scarf and boots helps set the scene.

A simple table top tree was an impulse purchase at the grocery store last week. The porch seems so festive now. I also added these boxes that I wrapped a couple of weeks ago for a gift wrap ideas post. If you look closely you'll notice that the paper is wrinkled from all the rain we've had. Now just pretend you didn't see it.

I placed the tree in a beverage bucket and set it inside a vintage red wagon. This wagon was my father's when he was a little boy and it's perfect on our front porch. I think Dad likes knowing it's there too.
