Winter Porch

Well, It’s been awhile since my last post! I’m finding it hard to get back into the swing of things since the holidays! I could blame it on the weather, but honestly, we haven’t had it too bad so far. Winter is not my favourite, but I’m thankful we live in a place that has different seasons.

Winter Porch

Today I thought I would share with you how I decorated my porch for winter.

For Christmas, I had put a thrifted mantel out there, and filled it with white Christmas tree branches. They were lit up by a string of white lights every evening. (see the next two pics)

I decided to keep the mantel out there for winter, and replace the white branches with birch logs, and left the lights as well. I replaced the white Christmas trees with trees I had purchased from Canadian Tire after Christmas. I love these trees, and they look “wintery” to me.

For the 6 foot tree, I placed it in the wash tub and piled bricks on the base. (a thrifted sheet covers the bricks). We get nasty winds in the winter, and this keeps it secure. We screwed the base of the 4 foot tree to the big log…it isn’t going anywhere!

I decided to keep my pink frosty peonies and poinsettias in the bucket. I wanted a little colour out there. They were placed in the bucket and bricks piled on top of their stems, so they would stay put.

I took the little pair of skates from the shed and placed them by the chair. Each chair has a thrifted throw for the “cozy” factor! haha That’s it! I don’t put too many things on the porch for winter, just enough to make it welcoming. Like I mentioned before, the wind whips through there, and the more things I have out there, the more chance of them going flying off the porch!

I’m looking forward to Spring (I know, January has just started) but that doesn’t stop me from dreaming about which seeds I am going to plant, flowers I’m going to grow, etc. But for now, I will focus on cozy things, and start decorating for Valentines. I love Valentines Day decor! It’s such a bright spot in the middle of winter! I will be sharing some of my ideas soon!! As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
