Tips for Decorating Your Font Porch

Tips For Decorating The Front Porch

The front porch is an important space that welcomes all guests into your home. There many simple and beautiful ways to dress up your front porch. When decorating, outdoors, always keep in mind to use weather-resistance décor options. If you have front porch furniture, a fun way to incorporate décor is by using festive throw pillows or blankets to drape over chairs for a pop of color.
Dressing up your window plant shelf with greenery, lights, or even ornaments is another great way to pull in color to your front porch.
Don’t forget your front door. A wreath, tree, and doormat can work to bring the space together.

Tips for Decorating The Fireplace Mantel

Tips for Decorating The Fireplace Mantle

When decorating your fireplace mantle, keep in mind that your goal is to add height and dimension. You can do this by placing garland, ornaments and other items to the mantle.
How to hang garland damage free:

  • Lay the garland directly on top of the mantle or swag in front of the mantle
  • Secure the garland with command hooks for easy removal

Use real or pho greenery and add different accessories to add depth and texture.
Pro Tips – Pick a theme and stick with it. Adding a wreath over a mirror can help to add a simple, yet festive touch to your great room.

Decorating Your Tree for the Holidays

Tips for Decorating The Tree

The Tree is the star of the show. Here are some tips for how to decorate it like a professional.

  • Invest in a high quality tree, whether that’s real or artificial, and remember to shape the branches.
  • Spread the branches out to make them look more full and natural.
  • Keep to a color scheme. You can use bows and ribbon to make it feel chic and classy.
  • Before placing your lights on the tree, make sure they are all in working order.
    • If you’re using an artificial tree and you want to keep your lights for the following year, you can wrap them around each branch.
  • Consider a non-traditional tree skirt. Such as galvanized collars, wood crates, or a chunky throw.
