Hot Cocoa Bar

Doesn't that sound lovely? Hot cocoa bars are a great way to add holiday decoration to your porch as well as entertain your guests! Check out Anthropologie for cute mugs and other decor to add to your hot cocoa bar.

Fondue Party


Fondue parties are simple and informal but perfect for a cold winter evening! Try this Roasted Garlic and Black Pepper Raclette Fondue recipe from William Sonoma. Or if you're looking for something sweeter, try this Chocolate Fondue.  Either way, both guests and stomachs will be satisfied. 

DIY Decorations with the family


Involve the kids in holiday decorating by making paper snowflakes! DIY decorations are fun and engaging activities for the whole family. It also adds a unique and special touch to your porch.

ADD SOME COLOR and light


Winter can bring on some dull colors but you can always liven up your porch by mixing evergreens and berries for your outdoor plants. 


Dress up your porch with lanterns for a festive and classy feel - as well as add more light! Or fill them with Christmas ornaments or pinecones for an easy look.
