Are you ready for Christmas with less than a week to go? I feel pretty relaxed about the holidays this year. My decorating was done early, allowing me to relax a bit more. I wasn’t going to decorate the porch other than a wreath on the door, but then I got an email from American Farmhouse Style magazine requesting to photograph my Christmas home. My house won’t appear in the magazine until next year’s Christmas edition. The photographer comes next week and my farmhouse Christmas porch will be awaiting his arrival.
My porch wears a light dusting of snow as winter has comfortably settled in. My favorite Christmas pillow, designed by Lucy at Craftberry Bush, adorns my porch swing. A tiny tree from Wasco Nursery is tucked in a favorite stoneware crock.
The magnolia leaf wreath on the chair also wears a light dusting of snow. We’ve received almost a foot of snow and more is on the way this weekend.
Last year my pine cone wreath was on the back door. This year it’s been promoted to the front door. Do you prefer to put a wreath or a swag on your front door?
Evergreens and jingle bells are tucked into a wicker basket on my farmhouse Christmas porch. A few red berries add a bit of color.
One of my large glitter snowflakes add a crowning touch.
Hard to believe that Christmas is 6 days away. I still need to get my groceries for Christmas dinner. All my children will be here with their families and they’ve requested a traditional turkey with all the trimmings. Four days after Christmas, the photographer arrives, so I’ll have just enough time to clean and fluff up the house one more time before all the decorations are put away. My farmhouse Christmas porch is ready.
Are you hosting Christmas this year, or will you and your family be traveling for the holidays?
