The Holiday season is here and I spent this past week helping my friend decorate her front and side door at her house. As many of you know, we are hoping to move in early 2018 and everything at our house is in either boxes or spread out all over the house.  Needless to say, the Christmas decorating in our house will be minimal this year. I have a few friends who love to decorate and HomeGoods happens to be their favorite place to shop. I took advantage of my friend’s gorgeous new home (I shared her living room and her outdoor deck this past summer) and helped her add Christmas curb appeal cheer.

Hang a Wreath on Your Door

First step to adding curb appeal during the holiday season is to create a focal point which most always, starts with a wreath on the door. Whether the season is Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter a wreath creates a welcoming entrance.

Add a Welcome Mat

A welcome mat is a great way to cozy up a front step and welcome guests. I personally like sturdy welcome mats that won’t blow away. We live in New England so the winters can be brutal. A heavy sturdy welcome mat most likely will not blow away and will stand up to the cold wet weather.

Fill Planters with Greenery and a Bow

We used fresh greens to fill planters that were used during the summer and picked up some pretty ribbon from HomeGoods to make the bows. You can find fresh greenery at your local Home Improvement store, local nursery or tree farm. I usually snip a bunch from the shrubs at my house and the trees in the woods. You can save so much money by simply taking a walk in the woods. Or if you don’t want to do any trimming, you HomeGoods has got you covered with their faux plants/greenery.

My friend also has a side entrance off the garage so we took the opportunity to add a faux Christmas tree and a few decorative holiday elements.

Add Christmas Outdoor Decorative Items 

HomeGoods has the best Christmas selection of indoor and outdoor decorative accents. We mixed in pottery ducks that she had from the Summer time and used fresh greenery to create a pretty landscape around the tree and lantern. I like to use greenery to add a little softness to the step area. Whether your door has stone, wood or a brick entrance, you can soften the area with greenery.

The stocking from HomeGoods is an indoor decorative element but I thought it looked cute hanging on the door latch. The entrance is covered so that helps keep your items dry and protected from the weather.

Fresh or Faux Garland Looks Beautiful Over a Door or Wrapped Around Columns 

We have columns at our house too and I always love wrapping them with fresh garland during the holidays. I think my friends columns at her front door look amazing.
