Christmas Front Porch 2017

Happy Thursday! I'm so excited to be participating in The Christmas Festival Blog Tour this week. Hosted by the amazing Kendra at Kendra has spent a lot of time putting this blog tour together. Thank you so much Kendra! 
All bloggers are listed at the bottom of this post so you won't miss any of the amazing spaces and recipes.

If you are joining me from Erin Elizabeth Joan Designs  Front Porch, Welcome! I am so glad you are here today!

It gets really cold where I live and winters are hard on everything. I'm glad a have a bit of a covered porch so I can leave my Christmas décor out during the season.
I went with a rustic feel this year. I love greenery and natural elements in my décor. My garland is Faux{from Joann's Craft store} but the large pine cones{from Hobby Lobby} and birch logs are real.

Ignore the huge pillar in this next picture, It has to be there to help hold up my house or something! hahahaha!
This is my whole front porch. I've been wanting some white rocking chairs for a while and my sweet hubby got me some as an early Birthday gift, Isn't he sweet. They are from Wal-Mart but you can get them at The Home Depot or online. It's a little cold to be sitting out on them this month but they are fun to decorate.

Red pillows are from one of my favorite stores Tai Pan Trading. Seat Cushions are from my other favorite store World Market. Small tree is from Michaels craft store and basket is from Hobby Lobby.

I made this sled at a party my sister in law Cat @ Catherinas Creative Corner put on . Its from Natalie @crafts2you. Natalie makes a ton of different crafts, she puts them in a kit and you put it together, pain or stain it, its fun and easy! After staining my sled I added some greenery, eucalyptus, red berries and a home made bell garland{idea from Magnolia Home} and My favorite striped ribbon from World Market.

I just love the glow of Christmas lights at night!
 If you'll notice that I had to move my tree and cute gift from the chairs because my cats would shove them off so they could sleep on them, naughty kitties.

I liked keeping things simple and rustic this year. 
The natural Jute rug is from and the small cream rug is from Wal-Mart. I love to layer different colors and textures to give dimension and interest to a space..

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and see my front Porch.
Have a wonderful day friends!
