I love decorating at this time of year. When I’m not at the shop merchandising and decorating (click here to shop online), I’m redoing things at home.

And not only is the inside of my house undergoing a transformation, but my outside is too.

In case you’re in need of a little inspiration for your front porch this year (or front walk, as the case may be), I thought I’d include a few shots of not only MY house, but those of a couple friends too!

My porch didn’t look this nice this time last week but I didn’t want it looking drab for these photos so I’ve had it power washed to clear away the grime, aren’t you lucky! If your porch and house exterior has seen better days then get The Brothers from Annapolis Brothers Power Washing to come and brighten it up. The power washing has done my porch wonders, as you can see.

vintage breadbox turned into a Christmas planterI took a vintage breadbox and had the top cut off to create a unique planter with a pretty patina for my front porch.

vintage milk jug becomes outdoor Christmas decorMy vintage milk jug moved from here to in front of the garage doors. With the addition of a starry garland, some greens, spray painted sticks and some dogwood, it definitely feels festive.

front porch decor for ChristmasEven a smaller front porch can make the Christmas transition easily. Mel’s space feels like it’s filled with magic. Her bistro set and pretty vintage tin is set off perfectly by the candy cane pillows.

Ideas for outdoor holiday decorNot all Christmas decor has to be green and red – Tammy updated her front walk with a brightly colored bench and garland. The pots make the perfect pairing.

How do you decorate the outside of your home for the holidays?
