I’m excited to share my Christmas front porch decor as part of this year’s Christmas porches tour hosted by Amy from Atta Girl Says.

There are over a dozen beautiful porches, patios, and sunrooms all decked out for the holidays.

You will find lots of Christmas eye candy!

Last year I decorated my front porch in a fun little red truck theme.

Whenever I decorate a space, I usually start with an inspirational piece.

The red truck ornament my daughter bought me was the inspiration piece last year.

This year it was these gorgeous minty green pillows I received in the Decocrated Winter Box.

I fell in love with the soft colors. Plus, I knew the vintage wood Santa, that my sister-in-law made for me over 20 years ago, would be perfect with the pillows.

Isn’t it funny how things work out? It’s like Santa was just made to go with the pillows!

The refinished deacon’s bench is a favorite spot to decorate for each season.

It’s so helpful because it opens for storage. I keep small gardening tools and miscellaneous seasonal items inside.

All the bench needed was a soft throw, pillows, and the cutest Santa boots I picked up last season.

The sign above the bench is a new DIY made from an old pallet.

The quote “believe in the magic of Christmas” went with the vintage feel of the porch.

Can we take a minute to talk about the adorable little red wagon?

It’s the perfect size to carry a couple of frosted Christmas trees.

I love to use fresh pine wreaths at Christmas.

To keep costs down, I bought a plain wreath and decorated it with a few simple touches.

Pine cones from my yard were lightly painted in the same shade of minty green. 

I scored the ribbon at the craft store and added a pretty bow.

The deer was a thrift store find many years ago.

He looks right at home in the center of the wreath.

One item I buy every Christmas is fresh pine garland.

It really looks beautiful around the front door and adds a touch of elegance.

It’s definitely a big statement piece for a small price.

You can usually find it at the grocery store for under $20.

I couldn’t resist bringing back my red truck door mat layered on a buffalo plaid rug.


A small flocked tree, topiary and wood lantern fit nicely in this small space.

I filled a couple of vintage olive buckets with pine cones and fresh pine cut from the garland.

The be merry porch sign completes the Christmas porch decor.

Those mint pillows are adorable and what are the odds that the Santa your sister painted would match so well! Love the Be Merry sign as well! It was fun hopping with you- have a wonderful holiday season!

We adore these minty pastels! How can they make us feel so cold and so warm at the same time? :)

Your porch looks so festive and welcoming! I love the mint colors that you used this year. The sign you made looks great hanging on the wall and your wreath on your door looks so good adorned with pinecones and the deer. Be prepared for visitors to not come directly into your home. They are sure to have to stop to admire everything before entering.
