I’m sharing my country Christmas outdoor decorations as part of the annual Christmas Porches Tour hosted by my talented friend Amy from Atta Girl Says. 

There are 10 festive porches and outdoor spaces all decked out for the holidays. You will find the links at the end of this post, so be sure to stop by for a visit.

This is my 3rd year participating in this tour and it’s something I look forward to each year. 

You can see my prior Christmas porches below:

If you follow me on Facebook, you know I’m a huge fan of little red truck decor. 

It all started with this gift from my daughter a few years back:

Isn’t it so pretty? It made the perfect centerpiece for my little red truck Christmas tablescape. 

I’ll include a source list at the bottom of this post if you see something you like!

My dad recently gave me this tabletop red truck that is amazing! Not only do the bottle brush trees light up, but it also has headlights:

It’s even prettier in person with fake glitter snow on top. You may notice more snow in these pictures. Thankfully, I was able to take some pictures in between storms.

It made it a little difficult to include the outdoor rug I had in mind, but that’s par for the course with winters in New Hampshire.

I have to reference my favorite movie Christmas Vacation:  

My small patio table is the perfect spot for my daughter and I to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate. We both work from home so it’s nice to be able to get some fresh air and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.

The darling red truck mug was a Dollar Tree find from a few years back. You may notice that is NOT hot chocolate.

When it’s a reasonably acceptable time, this is where I also enjoy an occasional cocktail. You can find the recipe for the cranberry moscow mule HERE.

Add Fresh Greenery

You may have heard me mention before that I am very mindful of decorating on a budget for each season. I’m all about “shopping my home” or finding things on sale.

But one thing I always buy every Christmas is fresh pine garland. It looks beautiful around a door or hung across a mantel. And you can usually find it at the grocery stores for under $20. 

Quick tip:

Cut the garland in sections so you can use it throughout your home. I used a portion of one garland in my Christmas bedroom, across my mantel, and draped a piece above my sliding glass doors. 

Christmas deck with poinsettias

Fresh greenery really adds a festive touch to your holiday decor and it smells amazing! A fresh pine wreath adds a focal point to this seating area, which is my favorite spot on the deck.

The bright red poinsettias really pop against the snow-covered backdrop. Of course, they can’t handle the cold temps, so I brought them in.

If you are planning an outdoor gathering for the holidays, poinsettias are a beautiful way to add color.

Holiday Pillows and Throws

A great way to add that cozy factor to your outdoor space is to decorate with pillows and throws. The soft touches of mint green work beautifully with the evergreen wreath.

You can see how I made the sweet VW Bug pillow HERE. Faux fur is another item that I love to decorate with, especially in winter.

Here is another cost-saving tip. Rather than buying a faux fur throw or rug, which can be pricey, buy it from the fabric department at your local craft or home store.

They sell it by the yard. Take it home and cut pieces to drape over chairs or across a bench. It creates instant warmth! 

A regal silver-painted deer was added to a wooden crate with fresh-cut pine. Yup-I took a walk in the woods behind my house to cut a big basket of fresh pine for this. 🙂

This thrift store find was a bright metallic red when I found him. A couple of coats of silver metallic spray paint totally transformed him.

Though he definitely needs a new coat of spray paint after this season.

Decorating with Olive Buckets

I love to use olive buckets in my winter decor. They are so versatile and perfect to use as planters. You can see some other ways to decorate with olive buckets HERE.

This pretty little tree was a Black Friday find for $8! It fit perfectly inside this large olive bucket. I added some of the fresh-cut pine around the olive bucket for dimension. It’s so pretty!

My daughter and I each bought one of the tabletop trees for our bedroom too.

Add lights and you have instant holiday decor! Speaking of lights, do you prefer white or colored lights?

We seem to debate this every year. When my kids were younger they always wanted colored lights. 

I always wanted white. Who do you think won?

Add Christmas Lights

A must for any outdoor Christmas space are lights. They are the easiest way to add Christmas cheer. I went with these cool icicle lights that are a mix of globe lights and twinkle lights.

They are LED and really shine at night. I didn’t have a chance to snap a pic at night, but will definitely add one later so you can see how bright they are.

I hope you enjoyed my country Christmas outdoor decorations.

  • Fresh Greenery – wreaths, garland, tabletop trees

I love this look and the red truck. It doesn't fit into my decor but thinking I might buy things now to have for my patio next year.

Love all of your outdoor decor, but I especially love those red trucks! And I'm totally jealous of your snow! It has been so warm this fall that I don't have much hope of seeing any here in NC this year.

I'm so jealous of your snow! It was in the 80's when I did mine, LOL! The red truck is so cute and festive. Love the blanket and the pillows too! It was fun hopping with you, hope you have a Merry Christmas!

Your little red truck is so adorable and is the perfect porch addition for Christmas! Clipping your fresh garland into separate pieces is a great idea. I bet you and your daughter really enjoy this cozy porch. So pretty, all of it!
