When it comes time to decorate my front porch for Christmas, I wasn’t ready to put away my fall decor. I liked what I had done and wanted to keep it out. So how could my front porch transition from fall into Christmas?
The dusty blues of fall still appealed to me and I wanted to just update them for Christmas. And the best way to do that is to add glitter and sparkle!
I found these blue glittery peonies at Michaels and I bought 3 in these two different shades of blue.
I also got two of these silver branches with glittered blue pine cones attached.
I didn’t remove any of my fall flowers, I simply added the new glittery ones to the bouquet.
It was a pretty good start!
I have really enjoyed having this small blanket and pillow on my church pews for fall nights, so my plan was to keep the blanket here… I love that the print resembles leaves … and exchange the pillows for a more Christmas vibe.
I found these snowflake pillows from Big Lots shimmer Collection, and I rather like that they will work for the whole winter and not just Christmas! I will be using the solid blue pillows inside.
I also purchased another blanket from Big Lots for the other church pew. This one is the same gray and teal colors, but this time in plaid.
I am transitioning from Christmas reds, but since I can’t afford to do it all at once, I am still using the reds but I decided to add some blues to it.
I added these gray/blue/silver hydrangeas to my flower basket.

This week, Michael’s had their Christmas florals 60% off, so I went back and got a few more to add to what I had. This time I found a third shade of blue.
I am wondering if I should take the red topiaries out of the flower pots. I wish they were in blues instead.
I am happy with the blue changes for Christmas. Do you think I should just remove the topiaries and let the flower pots be empty? Or another idea, spray paint?? What would you do?
