I’m so happy to have you here today!  I have been pretty excited to share my Christmas porch with you…I painted our front door and couldn’t wait for you to see it!  But before I get to that, come see what I’ve put together.

This year I was inspired by Christmas tree lots when I decided to put my Tree Lot porch together…the strings of white lights, the signage, the trees, the trucks hauling trees, the snow…all of it classically Christmas.  There’s something magical about a Christmas tree lot, I think it’s because they hold so much nostalgia.

I thought it would be fun to capture even a little bit of a tree lot feeling on my porch…so I got busy planning.  I gathered together more white lights to hang from the porch ceiling.  I found some mini flocked trees at Winners and brought out a lot of decor that I already had in storage.  Bottle brush trees, plaid ribbon, flocked garland and my Vintage Truck Wreath.

Strung some cutie pie mitten lights.

Then I completed the look with this rug that I found at Simon’s…it’s actually what got my train of tree lot thinking going, and inspired the green of my door.  That’s a lot of responsibility on one rug hahahaha

So let’s get back to my door.  After I had everything decorated I took one look at my yellow door and decided it was time to paint it.  I loved my yellow door for a lot years, but I have been wanting to change the paint colour for a long time, and what better time to do that than now?

Anyway, the green.  I love it.  It’s a crazy colour, but where I live it’s winter for a lot of months and the bright cheery colour is a welcome view when skies are cold and grey.  Admittedly though, it is a little brighter green than I thought it would be, but that’s fine…it’s actually not as bright in real life as it appears here in pictures.  But I don’t stress about these things.  I think it’s a fun addition to my Christmas porch!

I hope you enjoyed my little porch tour!  If you want to see the rest of my holiday home, click here and come inside!

    The bright cheeriness of your green front door is amazing! I love the whole idea of basing your porch on the tree lot. It came out so beautifully!
