Dripping in Holiday Spirit

This head-turning Atlanta home is draped in festive greenery to highlight the holiday season. It just goes to show, when it comes to design, sometimes simple is best.

Postcard Pretty

We can’t get enough of this elegant, American Foursquare. With rich, green garland framing the front stoop and a vintage, wreath-clad car sitting the driveway, this home looks like a scene from a classic Christmas card. The only thing that’s missing is snow!

Dazzling Lights

Our recipe for killer Christmas curb appeal? White holiday lights, loads of fresh greenery, and pops of red and green decor throughout. This dazzling home checks all the boxes - and then some.

Making It Personal

A personalized touch is always nice, and this bright white monogram wreath is no exception. The ruby-hued ornaments add a glamorous touch to the wreath, potted plant and glass lanterns. (P.S. the snowy white pup peeking out the door is the best accessory a home could ever ask for!)

Rustic Welcome

Oh, don’t you want to head inside this lovely house for some cookies and hot cocoa? This inviting North Carolina home features a pretty pinecone garland over the door and a show-stopping evergreen wreath with fancy, red ticking-stripe bow.

Wrapped Like a Pro

Give the classic Christmas garland a whole new purpose while decorating the exterior of your home. We’re enamored with how gorgeous the fresh greenery, ribbon and twinkle lights look here, wrapped in unison around the front posts of this charming home.

Classic Red-Ribbon Wreath

When in doubt, you can never go wrong with a simple green wreath and bright red ribbon. Add one to each window for sophisticated, traditional Christmas curb appeal.

Snow, Aglow!

Nothing says, "Christmas Curb Appeal" like a stately, snow-covered home illuminated by twisted twinkle lights and accessorized in classic, red-ribboned wreaths

Holiday Correspondence

This mailbox is dressed for the occasion and ready for Christmas cards galore. Recreate this darling look on your mailbox with a garland, bright faux berries and red ribbon.

Classic Charm

Joanna Gaines decked-out the crisp white exterior of their Magnolia House bed and breakfast with classic trimmings of the Christmas season. The evergreen garland above the door and potted, pinecone and berry arrangements work together to create an inviting, elegant entrance.

Traditional Cheer

A grand upcycled pallet tree, a garland arch and twinkle lights for as far as the eyes can see? Yes, please. Don’t be afraid to go the extra mile and add creative structures to your front yard for the holiday season. The simple materials used here are anything but tacky, and add loads of Christmas joy to the exterior of this home.

Refined Red

This white home rocked streams of red snowflakes like we’ve never seen before. The door is dressed to impress, pairing the red snowflakes with polished boxwood topiaries and a simple, sophisticated garland above the door.

Spirited Sleigh

Start the holiday spirit at the very edge of your property. This light-wrapped sleigh is the perfect preview to the rest of the home's decorations — adding interest and charm before guests even roll down your driveway.

Candlelit Steps

Oh hello, classic Christmas storybook home. This ivy-covered front entry is illuminated with creative wine bottles used as candle holders, flanking the brick stairs. The flickering flames give a twinkling effect for beautiful ambience that leads up to two small trees topped with bows. Framed by the trees and a decorative, wooden reindeer and sled, the front doors are accessorized with square wreaths hung by traditional red ribbon.

Flocked + Festive

This modern, streamlined home is softened for the season with snowy wreaths, matching garland and classic red ribbon. Crafted paper bag luminaries glow through the night, guiding guests to the festive front door.

Framed in Fir

There’s something oh-so-magical and whimsical about this cheerful yellow home. The garland-wrapped posts, fir-framed windows and bright, sparkling lights bring the home to life.

Holly-Red Holiday

This snowy stoop is enhanced with spirited red-and-white pennant garland, a hand-stamped doormat and a cozy red scarf. These simple, DIY touches cost next to nothing, and bring this entryway to life for the holidays.

Woodsy Welcome

These warm, wooden Christmas trees almost look like iced gingerbread cookies, don’t you think? The woodsy cut-outs are the perfect complement to the classic holiday colors, red and green.

Dazzling, Dangling Stars

Shining Moravian stars dangle from this Japanes red maple, making for a whimsical seasonal display. The large star lanterns are a quick and easy alternative to wrapping a tree with string lights, without having to sacrifice on Christmas curb appeal.

Stunning Simplicity

This snow-covered cabin takes the "less is more" approach to Christmas decorating - and the results are nothing short of magical. A single pine is wrapped from top-to-bottom with sparkling string lights to illuminate the frosted front yard and lend the home storybook Christmas curb appeal.

Expert Wrapping

These handsome, double doors shine on their own but positively sparkle when wrapped in lush pine garland and flanked by two grand bows. Twinkle lights and glints of gold add to the display for a head-turning holiday glow.
