Christmas Outside

I have really been enjoying all the Christmas decorations that have been shared in blog land. There is such a wide range of styles and unique ideas, but all of in is so festive and such eye candy. Today I am sharing the front of my home. It is nothing fancy, but it is festive!

My black rockers are dressed up with some Christmas towel pillows.  I just took the pillows that where on them, placed the towels around them and tied the corners with some yarn. Easy and festive! On the tea cart I placed some Christmas wrapped presents and in my copper pitcher some trimmings from the yard. Then I just hung some red bells - which I need to change the ribbon.

Next to the rockers in the SL wall pocket I placed some more yard clippings. Another easy, pretty touch.

On the front door is a large wreath with glittery white and cooper magnolias, red berries, copper balls, pine cones and a woodsy Santa. I have had this for a few years now and still love it. Below is a close up of all the glittery flowers.

Next to the front door in the big ole planter I did a layer of yard clippings, then 3 different size wreaths and filled the center with Christmas balls.

On both sides of the front door I placed two little trees in urns and hanging a cross the front are some glittery gold stars.  And you know you must have some reindeer eating the front grass!

I don't think I have ever shared a picture of the outside of my home...

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit.  I really love when you leave me a comment and appreciate you taking the time.  From out home to your home - Merry Christmas!

I will be joining these fun parties.

You have a beautiful home! I like how you decorated it with lots of greenery and the deer out front. That is certainly fitting for GA! You live in my neck of the woods.

You have a beautiful home. There aren't a lot of brick homes here in So. Cal. I love going back to the Midwest and seeing them :)
Your porch is so pretty!!
