Holiday Front Porch Decor!

By Guest Blogger Carrie from Curly Crafty Mom
 
Today I am sharing my last post for Here Today, but to celebrate I am also giving away a $25 Gift Card to their stores (enter below). Here Today is a St. Louis area store, so you’ll only want to enter if one of their stores are near you. You can click HERE to see where their stores are located. For my last shopping trip in their stores, I decided to stock up on some Holiday decor for my front porch. I already have some porch decorations, but I wanted some new items to help spruce up the space.

This is what my porch looked like when I was done decorating it. I’ll be sure to share with you which items are from Here Today and after I show you my porch I will share with you some other items that they are carrying this holiday season.

I needed a new door mat for the front door and Here Today carried several door mats that would work for any season. I went with this black and natural colored one that says Welcome inside a trendy chevron pattern. You’ll also see I placed some topiaries inside the monogrammed urns and they match the wreath. These are all old items and you can see the post for how I made them HERE.

On the other side of the porch, I decorated our bench with a couple of pillows and a throw from Here Today. Then, to the right of the bench is two wooden reindeer (very old) filled with ornaments and then a poinsettia from Here Today.

Here Today has a whole aisle of pillows at GREAT prices. I am definitely going to go back to get some for our couches. I chose a white pillow and a red/white patterned pillow to match a stag pillow that I already had. Here Today also had these really soft throws and I selected one in a red/white zig zag pattern. The snowman is also old, but isn’t he cute next to the pillows?

Here Today also had a HUGE selection of poinsettias and I decided to wrap mine in burlap with a pretty bow. I also placed it on top of an inexpensive tin can that I found in their store.

These wooden reindeer are old and I am thinking about painting them white. I put mismatched bows on them and lined their baskets with burlap and filled them with ornaments. Here Today offers ornaments in boxes at great prices.

I also got this really cute mint julep cup and holiday candle, but it is staying inside. 🙂 The lantern is from one of my previous Here Today shopping trips.

I almost got these for my cat, but I don’t think she would have appreciated them. 😉

The candle area was where I found the mint julep votive holders for only $.99!
