Countdown to Christmas Round-up: Week 4 – Exteriors

At the homestretch of the countdown, we focused on how you can decorate your exteriors for the holidays. This week, two of our blogger friends did a wonderful job with making their outdoor spaces more inviting for their guests and loved ones.

Countdown to Christmas

Join us as we take a peek at beautifully decorated homes that welcome guests with holiday cheer.

Emily’s Christmas cottage porch delights with the snowy charm of a classic white Christmas. A pair of Outdoor Frosted Evergreen Potted Foliage on the sides of her beautiful teal door enlivened the entryway and blended wonderfully with the winter surroundings. To create a balance between old and new décor, she used our Simplistix Lights and Noel Outdoor LED Holiday Sign to light up her exterior, which was decorated with antique heirloom.

Randi transformed her front porch into a glowing, majestic space with the use of metallics and special lighting. She hung a wreath adorned with lacy ribbon on the door. To create depth, she flanked the archways with a pair of four-foot potted trees and complemented them with warmly lit foliage, embellished with our Silver and Gold Glass Ornament Set for added glow and shimmer.

Our brand ambassador, Courtney of French Country Cottage wrapped up the Countdown with a post on her exterior décor. The snowy look of the Outdoor Frosted Evergreen Foliage and the Outdoor Frosted Evergreen Potted Foliage mounted across the entryway matched Courtney’s white French doors beautifully. Small crossbar traditional lanterns illuminated by battery-operated wax drip pillar candles brightened the wooden steps and created a warm atmosphere for the wintry entryway. In her post, Courtney also featured a Balsam Hill copper and cast metal fire pit, which gave her space a cozy ambiance for people to gather outdoors.
