I was so excited to be invited by Lowe’s Canada to be involved in a holiday decorating project this season! I chose my Mom’s front door because it needed some serious curb appeal! Here’s the before picture below:
My Mom’s door needed some TLC. A new light fixture, front door handle, decorative pots, a new front door mat and of course some Holiday cheer!
Here’s the after photo in the daytime:
Out of all the door mats, this lattice design is my favourite.
I also picked up this rubber mat and placed it before the steps on the gravel (not shown). My Mom had one there that kept blowing away. This one is all rubber, heavy and made for outdoor use.
Here’s the wreath we bought, it’s so pretty all lit up with the garland around the door.
I also picked up outdoor clippings like the Salal and cedar branches from Lowe’s.
My Mom LOVED her new front door handle. We arrived home from the airport (she had been in Finland for the past three months) around 4:30 PM and after we had dinner she went straight to bed. When she got up jet lagged at 1:30 AM in the morning, she walked right outside to admire her new lights and colours!
The new lantern was also a huge improvement!
And here’s my Mom Hellen (above)! And the door lit up in the early evening (below).
The lanterns are battery operated so they stay on even in the strong winds which we get a lot out here in the winter!
The outdoor christmas angel got a new turquoise ribbon instead of the red one it came with to coordinate with the overall colour scheme.
Christmas balls are so easy to decorate with and Lowe’s has a wonderful selection of colours to choose from. My favourite is arranging them in between boxwood or any shrub and some holiday greenery. Use large and small balls to mix it up.
Thank you so much to Lowe’s Canada for sponsoring this wonderful holiday surprise for my sweet Mom!
