Once again, I’m cheating on Walkabout Wednesday. I haven’t had time for much more than my regular walks to the post office, and there just hasn’t been much interesting happening along my regular route.
So once again, you’re getting a view of the walk by my house…
You see, on Saturday, the weather got up to a balmy 11C/51F, so I decided to take advantage while I could and get my porch decorated for the season.
I know… I’ve said several times, I don’t like to decorate before Dec 1… but the weather really was too good. Plus, this coming weekend is set to be a busy one.
I changed a couple things up this year, but it’s still pretty similar to last year.
As with last year, it’s a base of pine garland, white lights and icicle lights. But last year, where I embellished with gold and green balls, I switched it up for red and silver.
The biggest change, of course, is that I have my planters on the porch now.
I took out the dying mums, and filled them with fresh greens and willow twigs, which was purchased from a local nursery. I had a few silk poinsettias from old decorations at the townhouse, so I added a few of them in for a nice pop of red. And as pretty as it is during the day…
I think it really shines at night!

Your front step look gorgeous!!
It looks wonderful Val. It does look pretty during the day too, but at night it’s gorgeous. Alex and family leave this evening and tomorrow I hope to get some decorating done too.
Love your door mat too.
Very festive during the day, and very beautiful at night. I just love white twinkle lights.
Festive and beautiful Val – nicely done!!
Oh, so pretty! We will be putting ours up this weekend!
A festive and welcoming front door!
I love your lights at night and the planters are just wonderful.
Beautiful. Almost gets me in the mood to do my decorating…
