Hi, friends! I’ll be honest- I don’t typically “go all out” on outdoor holiday decorations. I think I’m always so overly focused on the inside of our house, that the outside tends to go on the back burner. This year, we’re hosting Thanksgiving, so it’s been really fun to up my game and really make the house feel special. The porch was no exception!
I found this tree arch on Wayfair and knew I had to have it! The size is so epic! I thought it was such a unique spin on a Christmas tree, and the perfect starting point to making the front porch feel magical. The game plan was to super stuff it with ornaments. If you saw our mantel, you know that I’ve been Christmas decorating with Autumn colors. I’m kind of setting the tone for Thanksgiving with mostly browns. I found a set of 60 brown ornaments and used three sets! That’s 180 ornaments! Because the branches on the arch are pretty basic and unrealistic, I bought this set of cedar picks. I find that mixing in different branches makes a faux tree or garland a little more realistic. I also used these twinkling lights. Only $3/box and really makes it special!
This set of light up gift boxes was such a fun touch! I didn’t particularly love the ribbon that it came with (red and gold checkerboard pattern), so I removed it and ordered this coppery/brown satin ribbon and hot glued it on! Problem solved! $8.99 for a whopping 50 yards! I’ll use leftovers on gifts and other decor! Added some to this wreath. It comes with a pretty red ribbon, but since I’m going with a brown theme, I swapped it out. Don’t be afraid to alter things after you buy them!
