Christmas on the Porch


Since we painted our house this summer from red to blue, I quickly discovered I needed to take a totally different look at decorating my porch for the Christmas holiday.  But I don't want to spend a fortune on new decor so I started searching out Pinterest for ideas for what I could do with what I have. The pic above is one I really love, the color pallet is amazing and very fresh looking-I have that sign and also an old window. Some of the ideas below I can switch the colors out too.

Above is my porch before and after...

Perfect for those planters on either side of the door--white freezer paper wrapping?


This works for the planter chair, paint the bucket white or red. Or maybe use white elements inside the bucket.

 I do have a picket fence similiar to this too

I have this exact watering can too...I would leave just as is...

I may not use all of these ideas, but got some great inspiration to do this on the cheap with many of the items I already have.

Today I got an email from Flea Market Gardening blog with more inspiration. Ammie does an excellent job of using elements from her home and garden to decorate.
Check out the bench below and head over to the blog to see more

Cottage Garden Inspiration with YELLOW

How about a little color inspiration with yellow? Many of us are busy planting and decorating our gardens, patios and porches now. Some die hard cottage gardeners say yellow is not a color widely used (Especially in English gardens) but as you can see in the images below, we say absolutely!

Enjoy!

Cottage garden purple inspiration

Hello cottage lovers! We have been a bit absent on regular (other than Market Monday's monthly) posting due to the lack of submissiona so we are again sending out the request for anyone who loves the diverse cottage style who would like to occassionally submit posts for our site here. It can be just a one time thing or regular basis, no rules except being in the spirit of Embracing Cottage Styles! If you are interested, please email Debbi at MarionberryCottage@yahoo.com.



Today we thought we would start out April with some Cottage Garden inspiration with the color purple, with some amazing photography from Pinterest. At the first of each month we will bring you a different color or style to drool upon and maybe inspire you to grow in your garden, decorate your home or create something special.

ENJOY!!
