Jolly front porch Christmas decorations that combine traditional and vintage Christmas decor for a holiday porch the neighborhood will be talking about.
Today is one of my favorite days of the year. Christmas Porch Day.
Where a group of us holiday porch nuts get together and show you what we've been up to outside the house.
I'll show you my porch first and then you can grab a cup of hot cocoa and go visit the other porch-obsessed blogs (there's links down toward the bottom of this post).
This year my porch decor started when I spotted this adorable light up reindeer at a local shop.
I HAD TO HAVE HIM.
I think he may have been part of a store display and may have gotten separated from his other reindeer friends and Santa at some point.
He seemed so sad at the store, so I invited him to come home with me until we can reunite him with his peeps.
And then of course I wanted to do a holiday porch pot again this year.
You can see how I made it along with a supplies list, tutorial and video on my How To Make Outdoor Christmas Planters HERE.
For some of the small details, I tied some door charms to my black rocking chairs,
added some pinecones to a vintage coal bucket thingie I found at a barn sale this summer,
and since it wouldn't be Christmas without a Thermos, I added some faux greenery in one side of this plaid Thermos picnic set.
This is the one I found this summer at the super-cheap antique mall. It had never been used (before now) and was still in the original packaging.
That's all folks. I could have crammed more onto the porch, but this year it's all about Rodney.
Rodney The Reindeer that is.
Oh, wait. Did I tell you he lights up!!!
Not the best photo, because who the heck takes photos in their jammies at night in 30 degree weather, but he is rather fetching all lit up!
I'm sure Santa will see him and run right back to pick him up.

Although some of the stuff I use on my porch was bought locally from small Mom and Pop type shops, you can find similar things online. Oh, except for Rodney The Reindeer. I believe he is one of a kind (except for his missing friends and who knows where they ran off to).
Now you're off to see some more holly jolly goodness.
Prepared to be inspired with these festive Christmas decorating ideas for your front porch, sunroom, screened-in porch or gazebo.
