Hello! I am excited to show you my fantastic Lanterns that I've decorated and placed on the Front Porch for Christmas.
I found them at Nell Hills in Briarcliff . It's one of my favorite places to go for accessories and inspiration. I just fall in love with everything she has and have such a hard time only buying one or two things. I spotted these Lanterns and at the affordable price of around $59.00 I had to have TWO!!! I am sure that you will be seeing them quite a bit in all kinds of displays and vignettes. Matter of fact, I was so thrilled when I got them that I used one on my Thanksgiving table... Take a look:
Here is a view of the entire Front Porch
I kept it simple this year and let the Lanterns take center stage. I placed the Lanterns in my urns that I refinished last year from a light gray to a bronzy color. I purchased the fresh wreaths on the doors at Costco for about $15.00 a piece and added ribbon bows to them. Easy Peezy!!!
I splurged on the ribbon at Nell Hills. I couldn't resist the adorable little birds on the burlap ribbon. I always get mad at myself when I really want something and I pass it up because I think maybe I don't really need it! I knew I wanted this ribbon so I convinced myself not to leave the store without it. The red window pane ribbon is from Michaels. I love their new rewards and coupon system. I can get some really good deals when I pay attention to the emails.
I surrounded the Lanterns with a greenery swag from Costco that I cut apart. I tucked other greenery in that I had left over from my floral arrangements. Waste Not... Some pinecones and some pepper berries made it POP.
Let's look inside the Lanterns.
A Christmas greenery pick, A sweet little bird's nest, and A battery operated candle all nestled inside. Delightful!
Thanks for coming to my Front Porch!!! Come on inside in the next post. It will be after Christmas as I try to fill in the empty spaces where Christmas used to be...
Merry Christmas Everyone !!! Have a Joyous Celebration and enjoy your Holiday with family and friends!!!
