The holidays are just around the corner. Many of us are going to deck the halls inside for the festivities but sometimes we forget about our outdoor space during the colder months. Our front porch is where we welcome our friends and family into our home all year long and there is no better space to start your holiday decorating than right there. Most people are familiar with a classic wreath or doormat but the possibilities for decorating are endless. For example, GE Landscape Supply has a variety of large planters to get you started.We have Urn styles for a classic Victorian look, sleek square pots for modern styles and colorful planters for anything in-between. In the summer, they can overflow with lush greenery and flowers, but sometimes their look can fall flat in the fall and winter months when our seasonal flowers wilt and our ornamental grass dries out. However, your planters can be just as festive and beautiful all year round. During the fall and winter holidays, they are the perfect place for a welcoming arrangement for the season.
Here are a few fall and winter holiday decorating ideas that can help you get good use out of your large planters all year long.
