It’s full speed ahead with the Christmas decorating around here, thanks to the Home Depot Holiday Style Challenge. They assign each of the participating bloggers a specific area in their homes to decorate. I was given “outdoor” and originally thought the front door would be the place to start.
But, I eventually decided our patio might be more fun to tackle. Since we usually don’t see frigid temperatures or snow until late January or February. So, having a little Christmas celebration on the patio is totally feasible. I’ll be sharing my finished project in a few weeks, but for now, here’s some winter outdoor inspiration.
1.Winter Porch Decorating Ideas
Barren trees. Dormant plants. Frozen lawns. Winter can be a tough season to love when it ices your home’s curb appeal. Fortunately, decorating your front porch, particularly post-holidays, can make up for a sad yard during the drabbest days of the year.
2. Decorating a Small Porch

6. Modern Farmhouse Porch
For instance, the farmhouse chair is a part of an outdoor dining set. The faux wicker planter used to display summertime annuals doubles as a decorative log holder during the cold season. Another smart idea to borrow are the solar powered string lights that brighten the home’s entrance at night.
