~a festive porch entryway with Kirklands~

Happy Friday!
Today I am excited to share with you our Christmasland porch all decked out for the holidays in partnership with Kirkland's. 
I love decorating the outside of the house for the holidays almost as much as I do the inside.
It's been a tradition in our family for years to get the kids involved and decorate as a family.
The porch is a good place to start, as it's always good to make a inviting and welcoming entry for friends and family who visit this time of year.

As soon as I saw this tree I knew I had to have it.
It gives that wow factor to the entry and casts a great glow.
I placed it in a inexpensive bucket and wrapped boxwood garland around the base.



Another neat thing about this tree is that it has different settings, so the lights can flash, and chase, or be on all the time.


In keeping with the black metal tree, I also selected two different types of lanterns and then added faux candles that come on when it gets dark.
The light up the entry perfectly and add to that magical Christmas look.



The smaller of the two lanterns come with the candle already in them.
You can find the larger ones here.
I like the the varying heights, as it adds visual interest. 



Too keep things from being to monochromatic I added in some fun plaid doormats that I had.



A Christmas sign balances out the tree on the other side of the French doors.



This entry leads to our mud/game room.
{I will be sharing updated photos of the inside next week}
I added little Ikea wreaths to the doors with command hooks and found a pretty flannel ribbon that matched the doormats, and added those to the tops.





This photo gives you a little perspective on where the entry is on our house. Above is the dining room, and off of that is the living room.




Thank you for taking the time to stop by and see our Christmasland porch!
