Friends and family encounter Christmas on the front porch. It is like the gift wrap to welcome that makes them get excited about what is inside! Fresh greens in the planters flank the entry. Garlands wrap the posts and down the staircase to the patio, and ice skates and a vintage sled are ready to play when they are not posing.
Wrap a couple of patio cushions with red velvet ribbon for color on the swing. Fill an old red wagon with a bed of greens and nestle weathered bird houses for an outdoor Christmas village.
A piece of white picket fence behind the swing is a handy display piece that acts like a faux’ mantle holding more greens and large decorative candy canes. Come right in…we have been waiting for you.
MERRY CHRIST-CENTERED CHRISTMAS!
