I love adding porch decor, and I tend to use this simple formula no matter the season.

  1. Door wreath or swag
  2. Simple (season-less) door mat
  3. Evergreen planters flanking the front door
  4. White LED lights (or lanterns) in moderation
  5. Optional Seasonal Additions:
    • Bells
    • Pine Cones
    • Evergreen garlands
    • Undecorated pine trees of various sizes
    • Stack of cut logs
    • Embellishments like pine cones, berries, or flocking
    • Vintage sled with skates
