With the holidays coming up fast, you may be planning parties and get-togethers at your home. If you just installed a new entry door, you are understandably very proud of it and want to show it off. What better way to do that than with some beautiful decorations?
Layer Holiday Decorations
Spruce up your holiday front porch with layers. Choose a design with varied height and depth, placing the tallest objects against the wall next to your door and other items positioned in front as they decrease in size. Stackable objects, such as brightly colored gifts, can be used to prop other items up. For the front door itself, think about how you want to layer colors. Perhaps you want a traditional all-red-and-green or maybe you want to add in some icy blues and elegant silvers, as suggested by Better Homes and Gardens.
Fill a woven basket with assorted natural winter elements, such as white birch logs, oversized pine cones, ornaments and greenery. You can dress up the basket with red checked ribbon to complement other elements on your porch.
Display Presents and Packages
Do you have a covered porch or entryway? Try wrapping a few boxes and tying them up with a bow. Select bright and cheerful wrapping paper, or opt for plain brown paper accented by a burlap ribbon.
Pick up some plants at your local greenhouse, such as a cypress shrub which features beautiful draping branches. Place it in a red basket and surround it with other winter-friendly plants.
Decorate with Garland
Strands of evergreen garland are great for tying the whole look together. Place two garlands at the top center of the door, draping each end over the corners of the entryway. You can let it fall all the way to the ground, or stop it short to keep it separate from the other greenery you may have going on below.
Light the Way
Adding texture to your design is as easy as incorporating a glass-paneled lantern. Fill it with different size faux candles (flameless LED candles are wise) to make a gorgeous, rustic lantern that illuminates the front porch. Top the look off with a fine dusting of fake snow.
