The wreath holder is from Smith and Hawken.  I miss that store!



We like to decorate with greenery, live flowers, white lights, and chartreuse ribbon.

Verbena, pansies, grasses, and cold weather succulents

A Christmas cactus and maiden hair fern greet visitors

Instead of holly and ivy, we chose pansies and ivy!

  1. Love your front door! So jealous to see flowers and greenery. We're grey and snowy here in Ottawa.

    Thanks so much for popping by and seeing my copycat.

    Happy new follower and would love if you would share at my Pin'Inspiration Party tomorrow.

  2. I absolutely love your front entrance area! It's so natural and full of lush greenery. The bright green mesh ribbon adds that extra pop of color without being distracting to everything around it. So tasteful and simple!

  20. Your front porch and door look lovely, Ricki Jill! It's exactly how I would have imagined you would decorate. It's like walking through a magical garden, and I love it! It has actually been too cold here for outside plants. Freezing and below -- can you believe that in AZ?

  21. Wow! Stunning Ricki, I'm speechless and mesmerized. I always love the bricks and white windows of your home. It gives a homey, relaxing and welcoming atmopshere. It really feels like home. Added to it the green decors, your home provides the homey Xmas atmosphere we are all awaiting.

  22. Your front porch is so pretty Ricki Jill. I have always loved to look at front porches...don't know why. Ours is simple - we usually have white lights adorning our home, and a little lit up penguin sitting on our porch.

  24. You have such a pretty porch area with all the brick. Love the live wreath. Like us you can still have flowers. My MIL has a Christmas cactus that is huge. Did you know some people pass them down they live forever.
