Happy Sunday and welcome to the Twelve Days of Holiday Homes Home Tour! If you’re coming from Christy of 11 Magnolia Lane and you’re new to CitrineLIving, welcome! I’m Tamara, and today I’m sharing our Christmas front porch decor with fresh greenery.
I’m so happy you’re here with me today and I’m even happier to be a part of this fabulous home tour that’s been running since December 1st! I want to extend a huge thank you to Amy and Christy of 11 Magnolia Lane as well as Jenny of Evolution of Style for hosting our tour.
Each year I keep my Christmas decor classic and simple, and I don’t usually change it that much. This year, I’ve tweaked it a little bit and I have a beautiful, fresh wreath that was shipped over to me from Lynch Creek Farm , who are sponsoring our tour. I can’t wait to show you, please come and join me on our porch!

CHRISTMAS FRONT PORCH DECOR WITH FRESH GREENERY
I began taking my photos for this post in the afternoon, and it was a rather grey day, so please bare with me as I take you through! You’ll also notice the shift in the lighting as it started to get dark – I just love that blueish cast the washes over everything at the end of the day
We’ve had a few light snowfalls this year, but nothing that’s lasted more than a few days on the ground.
I was hoping we’d get lucky and I’d be able to capture some for this post.
It’s very common to have a lot of snow on the ground by now, but no luck today! Try to ignore the brown garden beds if you can ;)
They aren’t the prettiest, but I think everything else on our porch makes up for it!
If you’re a regular visitor, then you’ll remember our porch last year, when we updated our lighting – the snow at that time was magical!
There’s something about that soft white blanket that instantly turns everything into a fairytale. You can see it here.This year, to compliment our beautiful Blended Bay wreath, I decided to add two pencil trees flanking the front door.
I wanted to draw your eye straight up to the the door and our lush, fresh wreath. This is the first time I’ve ever had a fresh wreath and I just love it.
It’s so full and smells so delicious, and I just love the mix of different greenery.
Living in a wooded neighborhood surrounded by pines, this is the perfect addition to our front porch. It’s the perfect way to welcome guests into our home for the holidays.
I always get fresh cut pine from a local florist for our planters and this year, I decided to make them as large as I could. We added a few lights for more twinkle at night, and I always use some silver picks for added sparkle too.
I dressed up our wreath with a combination of ribbons : a 3″ blue grosgrain, a blue and white stripe, as well as a navy and green tartan.
If you’ve seen my living room and dining room in previous posts, then you know I’ve carried this theme throughout our home this season.
I’ve also used them to dress up my gift wrap, which you’ll also see carried throughout our home.
Here is where it started to get just a little bit darker out, it really is a magical time of year, isn’t it?
I love the glow of the lights on the door and how it shines all around the wreath.
Here’s a few shots I was able to capture just this morning as the snow was starting to fall…so happy I got these! PIN THE IMAGE BELOW FOR LATER!
