This season I went with a retro vibe when I was decorating my front porch for Christmas. In the past, I usually stayed with traditional Christmas colors.
One item was the catalyst for my entire design!! I was scrolling on Walmart way back at the beginning of October (yes, I am that person!!) and came across the cutest sign.
It was aqua blue and red and has the cutest retro reindeer…and I had to have it (it was under $20 too!).
I cleared off all my pumpkins and corn stalks for another year before I got started.

Decorating my front Christmas porch started with hanging this pre-lit flocked garland around the door. Tucking a couple of the branches into the vinyl trim around the front door is enough to secure it in place.
I used the same garland around the edges of my porch and down the railing.
Add Some Retro Style Ornaments
These big, retro styled ornaments from Walmart really jazzed up the garland!
Can you believe they are plastic?? They look so much like glass!!
They look so pretty when the lights are on.
A Few More Seasonal Details
I hung a red Letters To Santa mailbox on one side of the front door.
A vintage wagon that I bought a few years ago at a local antique store was filled with small trees and I painted a quick sign to hang on the front.
The sign that inspired my porch was hung on the other side of my front door.
My old Christmas tree came in handy! I popped on a couple of strings of new lights and put it in the corner.
This is one of two vintage sleds I have. It was a yard sale find for $5…it’s in great condition too,
Customize a grocery store greenery swag
I took a grocery store swag and added a few things to jazz it up: an icy branch, silver jingle bells, a plaid ribbon, and one of the ornaments.
Add A Wreath
I added an icy wreath with a string of fairy lights hanging on the front door.
Finished Christmas Front Porch

I wanted to update with a picture from our first big snowfall this week. It was a decent storm and dropped about a foot of snow here (some parts of New Hampshire got almost 4 feet!!)
