Have you given much thought to outdoor decorating for Christmas?
I’m sure you’ve seen the homes with all the colorful light displays and entryways beautifully festooned with greens and lights.
Today I’m sharing an idea for decorating those areas that are more personal. The ones not seen from the street… such as the back porch. The places where you’ll enjoy your favorite things with a holiday or wintry flair.
As I was going through some old photos, I discovered I took several pictures of an outdoor wintry garden vignette on my back porch. This was several years ago, just after I’d moved into my old house. It was the first time I ever had a covered back porch.
I had so much fun pulling in a vintage watering can and garden tool, vintage blue mason jars with some tea lights (which I forgot to light for the photo), bird houses and bird feeders, and boughs and Lunaria/honesty and Osage oranges I had gleaned from the fields. Plus my very weathered garden rabbit. It may seem like an odd mix… but to me it was just right for an outdoor wintry garden vignette.
A few rice lights were added for sparkle at night and voila! a little Christmas corner I could enjoy for several months. You’ll notice I added miniature lights to the porch rail for additional glow.
Daytime or night-time, it was so fun to peek out the windows to see my pretty woodland table. And when the snow came blowing in later, it was beautiful again in another glorious way.
Have you decorated a corner of your porch or yard for winter and Christmas?
If not, carve out an hour to “play” and enjoy creating some wintry beauty.
Thank you for stopping by today.
I appreciate you and your sweet comments make my day.
Wishing you an extraordinary day!
