Hello my sweets, welcome to the bonus day in our 12 Days of Christmas decorating series. Today it is all about you and your creations! Today you get to link up your awesomeness at the linky parties on our blogs.  You can share your outdoor Christmas decorations here at Songbird. And you can party along with your other Christmas decor at the homes of my fellow 12 Day-ers……

See! There is a linky party for everyone. 

Okay outdoor Christmas decor it is here on Songbird. Of course I choose outdoor decor, I love decorating the entries to our home. Nothing makes you feel more welcome and ‘at home’ than to see a lovely wreath on your front door, and a festively decorated porch.

Our living space looks out on our garden. I love to decorate our garden table and the shelves on the wall here too, as I can see them from inside. Plus we usually enter our house from the back, so the decorations I put out here are the ones that welcome me home first. 


Christmas decorating outdoors on garden table


In 2010 my outdoor decorations were pretty but laid back. Our terrace wasn’t covered yet and whatever I put out there had to be able to withstand the elements.

 In 2011 I took full advantage of our new covered back terrace and decorated the table and the wall shelves. But looking back I was still showing quite a bit of self restrained…..

Because this year I didn’t hold back with my outdoor decorating for Christmas

    Thanks for hosting, Marianne. Your terrace is so pretty and looks wonderful at Christmas. I love the farmtable and am drooling over your galvanized container collection. I have a smaller galvanized collection that I shared in our Christmas home tour and would love some pieces like yours.

      Thank you, I am very happy with my little collection too. I found a lot of it for free in my in-laws basement. Such a lucky find.
      Merry Christmas to you and your family.
