Christmas Memories On The Porch

Decorating the porch for Christmas or any holiday is always so fun.  I have loved having this wonderful porch to play with.  With us moving in 2 weeks, there is no porch decorating going on around here right now, just tons of boxes and packing like mad.  However I thought it would be fun to see how the porch looked in years past.

Lots of light and of course some plaid for our 2015 Porch.

As you can see, red plaid and red bows was the theme.

2014 was a little more laid back.

 This was the beginning of my plaid craze.  Red plaid and Black plaid.

 2011 with our reindeer and sleigh.

These were really fun wicker pieces.  I use to fill the sleigh with gift wrapped empty boxes, not sure why I don't have a picture of that.

This is a picture of our new house.  As you can see, no porch.  I guess I will just have to figure out how to make that front window and the door spectacular.

How about you, so you like to decorate your porch too?

Be sure to save the date Dec 5th thru 9th for the
2016 Christmas Home Tours.

  6. Marty, I know you are so excited to move in and get started on your new house. I know it will be beautiful.

  7. I don't think my comment "took" so I'm writing it again. No porch for me, but I do have the back patio. I'm sure you're feeling pretty crazed trying to get everything done in all the Christmas traffic and general madness!

  8. Love the plaids Marty!! Good luck with your whirlwind!! Hubby and I moved 14 yrs ago and put everything in storage for 1 month and moved in with our Daughter and then found our home and moved again with 1 month!!! Merry Christmas!!

  9. Your porch is always so pretty no matter how you style it. Just cozy and fun. I bet you will miss that porch. The new house looks great. I know it will be exciting to have a new place to call home and put your decor touches on.
