We’ve got a confession…

The very first place we ever decorate for any season or holiday?

It’s our front porches.

Why?

It’s the very first place anyone ever sees!

Even if they never make it inside our homes, people will see our front porches.

So if we have our porch looking festive, people assume the rest of our house is decorated too!

Because in real life?

Sometimes it takes us a little longer to get the rest of our homes looking festive.

After all, the holiday season is busy!

We’ve both got multiple family birthdays, then there’s Thanksgiving, and don’t forget regular day-to-day life.

Even though we’re decor bloggers who are supposed to be on top of our decorating game, sometimes we’re running behind.

But.

If our front porch or entry is decorated?

Well.

It’s almost like everything is festive, right?
