It has been such a mild winter and fall so far that we’ve enjoyed the porch more than I can ever remember! It’s so warm, in fact, that we’ve only had one fire. And since it was 73 degrees the day I took my pics I couldn’t even bare one just for ambiance :-)
I love to scatter blankets and greenery around the porch for Christmas.
I went with a very simple chalkboard this year, with one of my favorite carols.
I was so excited to add a real wreath to the porch this year, courtesy of Lynch Creek Farm. I swear, opening the box was like opening Christmas! It smells divine.
I’ve got the usual hot chocolate and s’mores station set up out here, although it’s been too hot for either!
Unfortunately, my tree didn’t happen this year. Honey put it up and it lit up perfectly. But then when I went to decorate it a few days later … no lights at all! It was inside last year and we had a lot of trouble with the lights so I got a new one for the den and moved this one to the porch. I didn’t feel like going out and buying strings of lights to hang on it so we just pitched it and will hopefully score a new one after the holidays for next year.
This marks the end of my Deck the Halls holiday home tour. I sure have loved having y’all!
