Christmas Front Door

Earlier this week I showed you my window boxes, today I’ll share the rest of the outdoor decor!

I love how classic the red looks with our cottagey house.

I found this old wreath in my mom’s basement, it had a big pink bow and gold ornaments on it (she had quite the Christmas Decor in the 90’s, love you mom!) I ripped everything off except for the french horn and added the red accents.

I spray painted (shocking I know) yet again more branches silver to add a little height to my planters.

 Here’s a helpful tip – before hanging your garland up and adding the ornaments – check and make sure ALL your lights are working. 
Ugh, yes I really was that brainless, the whole middle section is out and I just don’t have the patience to check every little light.

Now if we could just get some snow it would really look like Christmas. 
 I’m probably the only crazy Michigander hoping for snow…
well, I know a certain 4 year old who is pretty pumped to make a snowman and ice skate, so I guess I’m not the only one wishing for winter to hurry up :)

  1. You have a beautiful home! I like how you added the branches to your planters for height. Thank you so much for joining our Holiday Happenings party. Have a wonderful holiday season!

  2. Your decor looks beautiful! I can’t seem to stop loving red at Christmas–and I love the window boxes!

  3. Wow, Kelly — your house is a dream. It’s so pretty, and I love how you dressed it up for Christmas. The garland around the entrance is my favorite part!

  4. Kelly – I think it is just beautiful. I love your home. I think we might have the same front door. Ours is not up yet while building is going on, but seeing yours makes me happy with the choice I made.

  5. Wow Kelly! And I mean wow! I love your home, it is so perfect! I wish I lived closer to come over and have a cup of coffee and enjoy your stunning view. You are one talented gal, love it!!! Jen

  6. Oh stop it! This is beautiful! Really, Kelly, you are so talented! Oh, and I’m wishing for snow, too. Yesterday I was thinking “if only it was colder this would be snow instead of rain”! Hope we get some snow soon.
