5 Spectacular Ways to Decorate Your Porch for the Holidays

Want your porch to look festive in the daylight?

Wondering what to do with all that extra garland?

Holiday lights are not the only way to get your home looking festive. This year, add a special touch to your house for the daylight and decorate your porch.

  1. Use Live Plants
    Better Homes and Gardens recommend using dwarf evergreens to decorate your front porch this holiday season. You can purchase the plants in the fall on sale. You can even pull the tree indoors right before Christmas and use it as a Christmas tree.
  2. Just Add Garland
    Use garland as a wrap around the pillars on your porch or hanging around your front door to give your porch the look for the holidays. Dress up the garland by adding some red ornaments.
  3. Give Window Boxes a Little Holiday Color
    No matter the time of year, window boxes are a great way to add that something special to the outside of your home. Fill your window boxes with greens, whites and pops of red.

    Use branches from your own evergreens or juniper, or try winterberry stems for that splash of red. You could even throw in some pine cones.

  4. A New Take On The Holiday Wreath
    You can always add a green wreath to your front door and right away your porch will be ready for the holidays. However, I loved what HGTV did with just an everyday wreath. They dressed it up to match the overall theme they were going for and it looked great.
  5. Evergreens in a Red Pot
    Really, any time that you put an evergreen tree in a red pot will feel like the holiday season. Better Homes and Gardens has a great idea to add a little dress up with a couple of branches, ornaments, red berries and pine cones.


Using these 5 ideas your porch will soon be the envy of the neighborhood. Find out how to keep your potted Christmas tree alive in our article How to Keep a Potted Christmas Tree Alive.
