If I had to pick two adjectives to describe my décor style for both interior and exterior, they would be simple and neutral.
I recently shared the Best Neutral Front Porch Fall Décor from Kirkland’s, which is where I mentioned I love shopping for my holiday décor, so naturally I was happy to partner with them again for my Simple + Neutral Front Porch Christmas Décor!

To say I’m obsessed with buffalo check is an understatement, and luckily, Kirkland’s stocks plenty of it! It’s just a bonus that it’s black and white. ;)
Although, the only time I add a little bit of red into my décor is for Christmas so I thought the red buffalo check bow was a cute yet subtle addition of Christmas red.
The two key pieces I tend to start with when shopping for front porch decor are the doormat and what I want to hang on my doors.
Since I have a welcome decal on my door and the main area rug in front of my door is a busy pattern, I like to keep the doormat fairly simple. Kirkland’s always has the cutest doormats, and they also had a buffalo check welcome mat in their fall collection that would carry over perfectly into winter and Christmas.
While I’d like to say I followed my own rule and picked out the doormat and door décor first this time, I’d be lying. As soon as my eyes landed on this Winter Wonderland A-frame sign I knew it was coming home with me and I’d figure out the rest.
I can’t even tell you how much I adore this sign!
I also love and seek out untraditional pieces, so rather than traditional wreaths I went with these adorable wooden sleds on the front doors. They’re also Mr. CG approved because they light up. He’s likes the flashy stuff – LOL.
For $125 I was able to create a complete simple + neutral front porch for Christmas that will be easy to store after the holidays without consuming a lot of extra storage space. That pretty much meets all of my holiday decorating criteria!
Tell me in the comments below your favorite colors to use for Christmas decorations. Do you go with the traditional red and green, or do you like to keep it untraditional like me?
