Winter Window Boxes {Lowe’s Creative Ideas}

by Chris on December 17, 2012

As part of my Lowe’s contributor duties (heh—duties), I decided to spruce up my window boxes. Reason #1,944 I wanted window boxes? To do this.

When the weather cooperates, my backyard is supposed to look like this.

But right now, it looks like this. Blah, boo, hiss….


After decorating it with various species of evergreens, I plugged in some large red ornaments from (you guessed it) Lowe’s. I did something similar in our winter urns last year if you’d like to see the method behind it. It’s not that difficult, really. The hardest part is making sure you don’t keep impaling yourself with pines. Just sayin’.

I think it allll ties in together nicely with the window wreaths and front porch. I’ll take some pictures of the whole house when we get some of that white stuff. Just not the same without it.

Once again, my thanks to Lowe’s for letting me be a part of their team. If you haven’t already, check out their Creative Ideas website. It’s got lots of great inspiration!

Beautiful!! It’s going to look so amazing with snow! I would love some window boxes like that. They’re so pretty and festive.

I so envy your being able to just walk in the back
and clip some evergreens! Beautiful boxes!
Happy Holidays

What a fun, festive idea! Your home is stunning with and without snow! Wish some of the houses in the UK looked like yours ☺

I just love the look of green, red and white (the white of your house, of course, because there is no snow). The window boxes are beautiful and very festive. You may have to break down and shoot a pic of the whole house anyway because we’re running out of time for snow before the big day…

Here in TX we only dream of a white Christmas – like the song says – unless you live in the Panhandle area. But there isn’t much to look at or do up there the rest of the year, so the Lord blesses them with snow in the winter just because those folks have the patience of Job to live there and He figures they deserve to have a little fun at least once a year.

I spoke too soon! Just saw the weather report last night and a storm is coming your way. I hope it’s not too bad – just enough to give you the white Christmas you and your family can enjoy. Post some pics for all of us envious Southerners! Take care and stay warm!

Looove your house and window boxes! How did you decide to go with the white ones? I should probably send you a picture of the front of my house to help me decide if I should go with black or rust for the window boxes! Great job on your house!

I love window boxes! And how wonderful to fill them with fresh evergreens in the winter :)

Do you replant your boxes every season?

Chris, how do you attach your wreathes onto your windows? Looks awesome…we got a bit of snow overnight over here in Davison along the I-69 corridor, so was a nice view to wake up to this morning. :)

So festive! I’ve been wanting window boxes for awhile. They’re so versatile for every season. Good luck on your white Christmas!

Really Christmasy. I love the pine needles and those red loops on a stick. I could kick myself for not getting windowboxes 22 years ago. I love decorating them, and window boxes are so pretty and versitile. Your home looks lovely! Mom
