Hathorn Hall Holiday Home Tour: Front Porch


The perfect place to sit a spell with a good, hot cup of coffee *smile* The fluffy, silver pillows are from TJMaxx in Johnson City, Tennessee.

Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee or hot cider and chat about everything from mini road trips to handmade goodness.

I got this silver wreath from Lowe’s several years ago. Metallics never go out of style *smile*

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Hathorn Hall, and this week on the blog the Hathorns are inviting y’all to join us for our holiday home tour. The hubby has been super sweet to help me get things gussied up a bit + he took all the photos for me. He is the best *awww, sweet moment* Even though we still have a few projects going on, we wanted to deck the halls as much as possible this year because for the past few years, we have been way too crazy, busy renovating to decorate! Pssst. Don’t tell the hubby, but next year…I am really going to deck the halls!!

That is enough chit chat. Let’s get started with today’s tour–the front porch in the daylight. Stay tuned for the front porch all lit up at night–it is a little Griswold-like *wink*

Inspired by “real” Christmas trees.

Large plastic Christmas balls + gold tulle = easy holiday decor

Bow made from gold tulle and fluffed to look like a tutu–inspired by the Nutcracker Ballet

Closer view of the evergreens I chose for the big pot. All plants are from Home Depot in Johnson City.

Little wooden Christmas tree that the hubby and I made from scrap and salvaged wood. Don’t y’all just love tartan plaid!

After much debate, I kept the milk can on the porch and added a big, festive bow to it.

Silver throw + white/silver pillow = cozy place to snuggle with my love *smile*

Closer view of the garland

My sister made me snowman pillows years ago for a Christmas tour I had at HatRidge. Aren’t they adorable + can you believe they are made from placemats!

Vintage + almost vintage Christmas tree balls in a copper basket.

Thanks so much for sitting a spell with me today as we took a little tour of the front porch in the daylight. Please join me tomorrow as we step inside for a look at the parlor.
