Christmas decorating for outside your home



 My attempt at outside festive decor

One of the best things about Christmas is decorating your home with festive decor. Christmas trees and fairy lights look great in indoors but don't forget to decorate outside too! Front doors and porches seem to get forgotten so give the outside of your home a festive makeover, all within budget of course:

Wreaths:
Your Christmas decor isn’t complete without a door wreath! There is so much choice:  from traditional green foliage, to something a little more colour and unique, door wreaths have never looked so good! Grace your door with one of these fab wreaths from the high street:

Welcome your guests to the door with this beautiful Tesco Berry wreath. I love the simple arrangement of green foliage, brown pine cones and those shiny red berries give a lovely natural effect.
 
If you’re looking for something a bit fancy how about this M&S Christmas wreath in rich green with natural decorations with golden leaves, berries and cones.


If simple is more your thing then this classic style Christmas wreath from John Lewis would be perfect for your front door.





This hand tied gold ribbon wreath from Homebase is perfect if you’re going for gold theme décor this year.

Doormats:
A doormat might be seen as one of the less important items to decorate   but it's use is not just for visitors to wipe their feet before entering your home! Update your doormat with a Christmas themed design or try something brighter to match the colour of your wreath for consistency in your decorations:
 
Set the festive tone to the entrance of your home with this John Lewis holly print door mat.

 
If you’re looking for something more fun go for this hand printed triple reindeer design from Tesco.
 
 Get into the festive spirit with this Argo stocking door mat.


Flower plants:
Give your plant pots a festive makeover and wrap Christmas ribbon around existing your plants and tie them with bows like I've done here:

 Getting the bay tree ready

The bay tree looks very festive with the red bow! 

Homebase have  a great range of value plants, this mini Christmas tree will add a festive touch to any area.

Hope you find these tips useful for making the outside your home the best dressed this Christmas!
