Hey friends! 😀
I’m super excited to join 24 super-talented bloggers for the Christmas Festival Blog Hop hosted by Kendra at Joy In Our Home!
If you’re coming from Follow The Yellow Brick Home, isn’t Amber’s front porch gorgeous?
This is our porch on the east side of our home. I don’t normally decorate this side of the porch because it isn’t the way guests would come up to the house, but I couldn’t use the west side of our home because it was being pummeled with rain and wind from the storms that came through last week.
We use this side of our porch quite often, especially during the summer months to escape the heat on summer evenings.
I love using natural elements in my outdoor decor during the colder months as it will stay fresh-looking for several weeks. I filled one of my olive buckets with branches from our redwood and bay leaf trees and berries from our heavenly bamboo bushes.
I added the grape box filled with pine cones to fill in the space behind the table. I couldn’t position it any way that looked good, so I put one of the table legs inside the grape box. I’m not sure if I like it or not – what do you think?
I hung a grapevine wreath on a pair of vintage wood skis to add some eye candy behind the rocking chair. I painted the grapevine wreath with white chalk spray paint and added branches from our redwood and bay leaf trees and berries from our heavenly bamboo bushes.
That’s it for side porch! Next up is Crisp Collective on Wednesday with a yummy slow cooker hot cocoa recipe!
