I am so excited to be joining in a Christmas Porch Tour today! You are in for a treat because there is lots of Christmas porch inspiration starting with my front porch and then scroll to the end for a bunch more porch tours including front porches, back porches, sunrooms and more!
I don’t know about you but my front porch is one of my favorite places to decorate for each season. It just sort of sets the mood and feel for the rest of my house and says “welcome”. When we moved to this house 3 years ago one of the things I was very excited about was having a centered symmetrical front door and a good-sized front porch. Even though I love my symmetry I do try and mix up my Christmas decor each year and not keep it completely symmetrical.
I am a huge yard sale/thrift shop shopper and my Christmas theme was mostly inspired by some fun finds I found over the summer – mainly a large vintage sled, some decorative skis, and an old set of ice skates. Perfect for a ski lodge-inspired Christmas theme!
Those large skis were a $5 yard sale find but originally came from Homegoods. I paired them with a $3 yard sale find wood sled I painted a few years ago and some of my favorite flocked trees – seriously I love these little trees so much and would love to have quite a few more.
The ski lodge sign was in the Walmart Christmas line – they had some incredible stuff this year! And the little sleigh ride sign was from the Target Dollar spot. I love mixing up my thrifted finds with some vintage finds and some inexpensive decor or clearance finds to create a beautiful space on a very small budget.
Over on this side of the porch is a few more trees (I am telling you I LOVE those flocked ones but they come in green too) and a vintage sled topped with another inexpensive Walmart sign. Those ice skates were $3 at a yard sale a few months ago and I was so excited to add a pair to my Christmas decor stash. No real use for them here in middle Georgia though – we just hope for a good 2-3 inches of snow one time a year.
Years ago I picked up 4 of these black lanterns at a yard sale for $1.00 each and they have been staples in my outdoor decor. The table and rocking chairs were all yard sale finds – I love shopping yardsales, can you tell?
I sure do love my front porch!
I don’t usually add any decor in this little corner by the swing but this year I did and it’s so festive!
There are not many days that I don’t spend at least 5-10 minutes swinging in this swing – it’s my favorite spot outside!
I love snipping some fresh greens from the yard to tuck here and there all throughout the decor on the porch. If we have cold enough weather they will last through Christmas.
Here’s a shot of our whole house, I always forget to capture the whole house and all the wreaths on the windows.
Of course, the magic really happens when it starts to get dark and all the lights are on…
I keep battery operated candles on timers in the lanterns all the time so they turn on each night with the lights… but for pictures, real ones always show up a bit better.
There is nothing like coming home to Christmas lights and candlelight..
I hope you’ve enjoyed my Christmas front porch tour! But don’t forget there are lots more porches to tour– make sure to check out all the porch tours linked below and pin some ideas for later.

Love, love, love your covered porch! And all the vintage goodies add beautifully to its charm. Beautiful space.

You are a porch decorator after my own heart. I love your “lodge” and all your fabulous vintage and thrifted finds. I need to hit up Walmart this year to check out their holiday decor. You found so many porch perfect pieces there.
Wow! So many festive details in this porch- I love the ski lodge theme! The flocked trees look so great among the skis and sled!
Your porch looks both festive and welcoming, Christina. You are so good at finding great things at yard sales. Lucky you to score those great lanterns, the skis, and something I’ve always wanted, vintage ice skates. I loved seeing your porch both day and night and I’ll bet that your neighbors do as well. Merry Christmas!

Christina, your porch is so welcoming especially with all the lights on at night! I love your decorated swing, too. We used to have a swing on our front porch but 3 people were in it and it fell! When we do some renovations, I think I’d like to put up a swing again. I spent many hours swinging on my grandparents’ porch as a kid. Enjoyed being on the porch tour with you.

I love your photos taken at night, the lights on the trees and lanterns are so gorgeous. What a festive and welcoming front porch you have!
Your porch looks great! Very much my style???

Your porch is so pretty and festive, Christina! Don’t come looking for me if those skis just happen to disappear – just saying. winkwink
