6 Flawless Christmas Exteriors

There’s something about those homes in iconic holiday movies — Christmas Vacation, Home Alone — that have me convinced that Christmas decor is only “done right” if it’s on a colonial home on Wisteria Lane, with tons of snow (jealous!). This of course is not reality…but like, isn’t it?!

COME ON:

I’m ALWAYS down for some topiary action, but I think even the neutral-to-mild topiary fan would find this version using gift boxes charming:

I love “mossy” monograms! Totes on my DIY list for the front door.

Aside from the architecture and snow, I’m gauging that swag, wreaths, and topiaries must equal “flawless” in my book, as those are the common features amongst most of these examples. Oh well… fact is fact!

Side note — I think it’s a blessing that I don’t have a front porch to obsess over because I just don’t think my mind has room to obsess over one more thing. Several times a week I post on this blog things I’m obsessing over and it’s NOT just a figure of speech. This newlywed Christmas business is exhausting!

What are some of the best Christmas exteriors you’ve seen? I know, tall order, as clearly I’ve captured them all. Just kidding! 🙂 I didn’t really explore the holiday lights realm. That might be an interesting research project! See? This is how the obsessing starts… some mild Google image-ing and a “quick” Pinterest search and before you know it, obsession!
