This will allow all family members to express their creativity through design, especially if you have kids, they love expressing themselves in crafts.
5. Greet Everyone to a festive home
We know that with the many events and holiday parties to host, you have a lot on your plate already, but decorating is easy and quick once you have everything you need. And what’s better than having a well-decorated home to welcome all? Make your guests feel the Christmas spirit throughout every space in your home.
1. Place Two Trees Doorside
The front porch is one of the most important spaces in creating curb appeal. And the best part? You can take your porch to the next level with just a few items. That’s all it takes. For the front porch we love the cedar, olive trees, and more! When looking for a holiday refresh, some of our customers love adding ornaments to the outdoor trees for a little refresh.
2. Don’t Forget About The Wreath
Have you heard about the rule of three in design? If you have a tight space or are looking for a quick way to spruce up your space, add two trees doorside and a wreath in the center of the door, for a touch of seasonal charm. This is all you need for an elevated and well-thought of space. For the holidays we love wreaths with berries, pinecones, pine and poinsettias.
3. Double Wreaths For Larger Doors
For those of you with a larger front porch, add two wreaths, one on each door. This creates symmetry and drama, accent the look with your faux plants doorside. We recommend choosing the same wreath for an elevated and clean look.
One of our best selling garlands is the cedar and for a good reason. People flock to the cedar during the holidays because it’s a great piece for year-round use and perfect for all decor styles. Clean, simple and green, add one near the front porch door for some character, as the seasons change, you can leave it up or swap for another garland. We love the versatility of pieces that can transition easily. It’s great for stretching the dollar.
5. Choose Tall Planters
We know that decorating and choosing the correct sized accents can be a bit time consuming and difficult, this is why planters are great for complementing any look. If you’d like to add a few inches to elevate your faux tree, consider a taller base for more visual interest.
6. Christmas Lights
We know that adding Christmas lights can be a bit of a tedious task, but it really brings out the essence of the season and makes it a great addition to any outdoor space. Especially during the get-togethers, the lights add warmth to any get celebration. Go all out and opt for colorful ones or classic white ones.
7. Faux Trees Of Varying Heights
In the front porch, we recommend at least two trees doorside but if you want to elevate your space, consider adding four faux trees, two of different heights. For example, you can display the shorter ones behind the taller ones, for some contrast and depth. Many social media influencers love incorporating this into their decor as it truly takes the front porch to the next level. The trees don’t have to be the same style, you can mix and match.
8. Cedars For Year-Round Use
We love cedars! Especially during the holidays, you can’t go wrong with this style. Our cedar garland and tree for the front porch are always a best-seller for their simple, yet classical look. Feel free to sprinkle hints of holiday cheer by decorating with mini ornaments and other holiday items. One of the best parts of the cedars is that you reuse the whole year, not only for the holidays.
9. Use Wooden Items For A Touch Of Rustic
We know that wooden touches add some coziness and a natural element in any space, bringing you closer to the outdoors. But for that rustic, ski chalet look, look for nature-inspired pieces such as pinecones, twigs, tree skirts and more. This is great for setting that sense of nature.
10. Add Some Poinsettias
We love silk flowers for winter! They’re low-maintenance, realistic looking and budget-friendly. Never worry about watering them, add these colorful blooms in a matching vase in an outdoor table or front porch in need of some more color. Especially if you have pets, poinsettias are poisonous for animals and can be lethal, keep them safe with faux flowers.
