A Christmas tree spreads holiday cheer throughout your home. However, a decorated front porch sets the tone for your holiday decor and gives a hint of what’s inside. Read on as we “open the door” to a few easy holiday decorating ideas for your entryway.
Traditional & Natural
Bring a touch of nature to your front door with a beautiful Crestwood Spruce wreath. Touches of pinecones and berries enhance the natural look of this Christmas decoration staple. Complement your wreath by hanging Crestwood Spruce garland along your railings and around your doorway. If you like, add a traditional berry-red ribbon for color. You can tie into the natural look even further by flanking your entryway with potted topiary trees. Add pinecones, berries and ribbon for a festive look that still leans on the natural theme.
Showcase your love for everything country-style in and around your home this holiday season. Drape a traditional strand of garland accented with pinecones for a cozy vibe. Brighten your door with a simple green or frosted wreath accented with berries or pinecones. To complete the look, add a rustic lantern or holiday sign. A small potted tree or rattan deer with a burlap bow would look right at home by the front door.
Buffalo plaid is trending right now – and for good reason! It’s super versatile and blends easily with many decorating styles. Set the tone for your entryway with a beautiful plaid-accented wreath. Buffalo plaid also adds warm touches around your home. Place black and red plaid throws on chairs. Add plaid around the tree with a black and white tree skirt and along the mantel with buffalo plaid Christmas stockings, for a cozy and cohesive look. And you can’t go wrong with a few buffalo plaid ornaments on your tree.
Festive & Colorful
If your home is bursting with color for the holidays, bring it outside for all to see! Start with a rainbow of shatterproof ornaments and strings of multi-colored lights for a festive touch. Add color to your doorway with a shatterproof ball ornament wreath and accent your entry with colorful path lights and inflatable decorations. On those dark winter nights, let your Christmas colors shine!
Not into traditional Christmas red and green? No problem! Swap out classic holiday hues for an equally elegant blue Christmas theme. Accent your entryway with shiny cobalt, teal and silver shatterproof ornaments. Hang blue ornaments from your porch ceiling and add them to your wreath or garland. As a final touch, decorate with blue icicle lights, string lights and rope lights for a true blue Christmas look.
Wreaths, garland, and other Christmas decorations are available in any style to bring your home decor to the door as you welcome guests inside. Feel free to browse our Christmas.com site for a full range of Christmas decorating ideas!
