There’s nothing more festive than a decorated for Christmas front porch and doorway. I love to add color and cheer on our front porch to welcome in guests. It’s the perfect spot for some traditional Christmas color of red and green.
Also, I’m joining a great group of ladies in a Christmas blog hop so please take a look at all the links below. These are all super talented bloggers so you’ll get so much inspiration from them this whole week.
I’m excited again this year to be partnering again with Lynch Creek Farm with a giveaway of a beautiful wreath, so stay tuned for that and sign up to win below! I was gifted my beautiful wreath and garland.
This year, I’m using some of the same elements I always use. Garland on the railings are easy to attach with zip ties. This multi-hued green garland is from Tree Classics, who I worked with in the past. It works great outside and I love to add bows. This one is prelit with batteries, but I don’t always use the lights.
Here’s a great look at that beautiful real mixed garland from Lynch Creek Farm. It is gorgeous framing our front door. My topiaries are making it fine so far and I’ve added bows on them. I made the bows using ribbon from At Home stores. The rug is also from At Home and I love it out here. Those lanterns are from Tractor Supply Co. a couple years ago.
Red bows are a good mix with the garland to add a pop of color.
The candy cane striped ribbon is a nice addition too. Making bows is very easy. I got a lesson years ago at a local Christmas store and have made my own bows ever since.
In fact, I did a video while I made these so you can see how I did it! Check it out here:
This rug from At Home is definitely getting me in the Holiday mood. Merry & Bright. Bring it on!
I’m hoping I can keep my topiaries alive until spring. They sure are pretty.
Mark’s boyhood sled makes an appearance on the porch once again. Just the right touch out here for a nostalgic Christmas greeting. I found those old ice skates at an antique store and I love them out here too.
The hanging of the garland and wreath on the front door just makes me get in the Christmas spirit. One of you will be winning a wreath just like this one, so stay tuned below. I love this one with a mix of magnolia leaves and pinecones.
It smells so good too.
The garland around the door is just the right touch as well. Lynch Creek really has the best garland ever. This is the longest one. I bought those large red Christmas balls at Old Tyme Pottery this year and love hanging them from the ceiling. Oh, notice we got a new lantern out here too. We had another one, but didn’t love it so Mark found this one instead.
That wreath though, is the crowning touch to the front door. We are really going to enjoy this entryway and it’s definitely helping me to get in the Holiday spirit. We all need as much cheer as we can get this year. It’s been a rough year, but I’ve got faith that things will improve with time. God still has everything under control. I tell myself this every day.
Merry Christmas my friends, let’s get ready to celebrate the month of December.

The porch is such a warm welcome to your home! The ice skates are so nostalgic!!!
Hi Rhoda, lovely as always! I love the traditional wreath on their website. I also followed them on insta for an extra chance to win! Thanks!
Gorgeous! I have to say I really love the magnolia wreath!
I think they are all gorgeous but the classics are my fave. Must say the Magnolia majestic just like yours was my fave. Your front porch is lovely!
Adele Haney LeChien says
Rhoda, I love the wreath and greens. I’ve always wanted a garland, but just have never had a place for one. You have a beauty there. The pine cones on your wreath are gorgeous. I am not sure the name of those, but I think we may have some even here in Florence, OR? Thank you for the link for the “perfect bow” because it’s been a long time since I’ve made one and they were never that gorgeous. You have a lovely inviting porch here and just have to add….love that rug. Have a blessed Christmas and thank you for your fun and interesting posts. I have a friend who just moved to GA and gave her your link. I know she’s having a struggle finding furniture for her new home. Hope she links up when she’s settled. -Happy Merry Christmas folks
Thank you, Adele, that’s such a sweet note!

Beautiful porch! A warm welcome to your home. It had to be difficult for you to choose your wreath! There are so many beautiful wreaths. I love all of them but Winter Frost would be awesome with my decor! Have a great day and I’ll be checking me email. 🤗
Carol Ann says
You can’t go wrong with any fresh wreath on the front door! So, so pretty.
Majestic Magnolia is my favorite!
Your front porch sets such a festive mood. The Majestic Magnolia wreath is truly the perfect finishing touch. It’s my favorite from their collection also. Thank you for giving your readers a chance to win one of these beauties. Wishing you and yours a very merry Christmas!

Lynch Creek Farm has a beautiful selection. I would enjoy winning or buying any one of their wreaths. My favorite one is “Sandals and Seashells,” since we live near the ocean! Sue.
As always, your stunning home doesn’t disappoint, Rhoda! It’s gorgeous from the front step forward. Happy holidays to you and your whole family! Happiness and health in 2021!!
