Outdoor Christmas Porch Decorations
Decorate your porch with cute Holiday planters. Use a large outdoor pot and fill it with evergreen cuttings. I cut down ones from my backyard evergreen tree but you could also get them where they sell Christmas trees. Or pick up fake evergreen branches at Dollar Tree.
Then fill the pot with small Christmas yard signs, fake red flowers, and pine cones. These will look amazing by your front door!
Make sure to decorate your tables with seasonal Nutcrackers, snow-covered Christmas trees, candles, and flowers.
The candles can also help your home smell great when guests come over for the holidays.
I love to scatter a few Christmas signs around the house with cute seasonal sayings. I find it breaks up all the other decorations and lights.
They have a huge selection of signs to choose from, so pick one that fits your family the best.
Don’t forget to spread a little cheer outside by finding a fun Christmas sign for your door. You’ll find a mix of snowmen signs to Santa Claus.
They also have cute holiday yard signs to stick in your Front yard.

DIY Holiday Selfie Station
People love to take selfies and remember a fun holiday party. Use these two loves and create a holiday selfie station. It’s a great way to get family and friends to take lots of fun pictures together.
Make the selfie area by taping a holiday door cover on a blank wall. Then place on a table next to it the Christmas photo prop kit.
During the party, people can come and go taking pictures on their phones. Remember to ask them to send you their best pics so you can keep the memories.
Tip: If you’re planning a Virtual Holiday party use these as the background of your Zoom view. It’s a fun way to celebrate when you can’t be together.
