 It’s hard to believe that the holidays are just about here and now is the time to start thinking about decorating your home. While there are many homeowners who have already started decorating the inside of their home, they haven’t started on the outside. Getting your front porch decorated at your Oak Island vacation rental ready for your guests this winter. Let’s take a look at a few ways of how you can get your front porch ready with holiday décor below.



 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 & Planters

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.
