Garland these days are easy to find whether you’re looking at a hardware store such as Home Depot or Lowe’s or at a local retailer. One of the new trends this year to use in decorating with garland is to get Eucalyptus Garland. This is not only inexpensive but is also a nice touch to your holiday décor. If you would rather purchase other garland such as pine and spruce, then your front porch will smell divine. Adding a homemade wreath with the garland will also add a little spunk to your front door as well.
Lanterns inside your vacation home is beautiful, but how about bringing them outside to sit on your front porch. Adding lanterns and planters to your front porch will not only give you more reasons to go shopping and decorating your home. Add some flowers or how about little topiary trees and set right by your front door. Adding a few extra things to the lanterns and planter boxes will light up your front porch for your guests this holiday season. A few things that you can add to them to be more festive is bows, garland and ornaments. This is a great way that you can decorate your front porch year-round too.
Getting a new welcome mat for your vacation rental will not only allow your guests to feel welcome, but it can also spruce up your front porch too. The latest craze is for you to make your own mat by purchasing a place one at the store, getting spray paint and a making a stencil. This way can help save you some money rather than purchasing one from the store. These days however you will be able to find one that you love and that has a cute holiday picture or saying.
