Flanked Pathway with Topiaries and Lanterns
Keep it classy with your outdoor Christmas decorations by flanking your pathway with lighted topiaries in soft, white pots. Lead the eye up to the front door with a matching garland and wreath. We also love the warm addition of white lanterns.
All White Everything
Embrace the snowy scene outdoors with more white! And, if you live in a warmer climate, the white decor will make for a festive, chic pop on your porch. Adding in a touch of pale pink is right on trend. These pink Christmas trees would make a great addition.
Eco Chic Arch
One thing that can make outdoor Christmas decor tacky is too much plastic. That’s why we like this handsome, natural front door arch. It’s made with a bundle of branches, white, gold and silver ornaments and fairy lights. Take a look at these homemade ornaments.
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t add decor to your garden. Grab an old, wooden chair and spruce it up alongside some shrubbery. You can adorn the chair with a Christmas wreath, a tray holding silver ornaments and warm fairy lights. Create a bundle of tiny pine branches, wrap them with twine and gather some pine cones. Place them in a silver jar on the tray. If you’re not one for as many frills, check out our list of minimalist holiday decorating ideas.
