Plaid Christmas on the Front Porch

Last weekend I did the finishing touches to the front porch.  Again with me running out of time and energy I didn't do as much as I had planned.

Here is the area to the right of the front door.

I love this plaid Santa that I got at Pier 1 this year.

On the bench I put a throw, wreath and some presents to coordinate with the Santa.

I wanted to do some garland around the front door but didn't get around to it.  At least I got the greenery drops under the lights.

 I added my small skates that I got at Goodwill a few years ago to the wreath.

I added some greenery to the urns and lanterns at the steps of the porch.

Now that I am finally done with Christmas maybe I can plan my New Year Eve table and actually get it done.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

  1. So beautiful. I really wish I had a porch. Your's is absolutely cozy and welcoming. Love all of it but your plaid santa is adorable. TFS

  2. So cozy! I love your porch and am more than a bit envious. We can't do that in the wet of a PNW winter.

  3. Red is the best color this year and your home certainly shows it off! I am red with jealousy over your front door! It's gorgeous AND symmetrical. I would kill for that! Loving the plaid throw and your wreaths! They look great. Thanks for joining us this busy season and every week!

    Merry Christmas!

  4. I love what you did with your bench! I need to do something more with mine next year.

  5. Jody, I have chosen your post as my feature post on Celebrate Your Story #160. I love the plaid incorporated into all your elements. Just lovely. Thanks for linking up to our link party and we hope you will continue to join our link party at 8 pm each Monday evening.
