Christmas Window Boxes & Urns

Morning, friends! 
Can you believe today marks the last day of November? 
I have to admit that I really don’t catch the Christmas spirit until we near December.  I’m not one to decorate the day after Thanksgiving.  However, living in New England means snow can arrive at any moment, so I’m feeling compelled to decorate the outside of our house before I freeze my patootie off.  Our new house has window boxes – fun! I’ve never had them before – and while I’m a bit intimidated to keep plants alive in them in the warm weather, I think I can handle sprucing them up for the Christmas season.  Just look at these beautiful inspirations:

I also have large urns by the front steps that I like to put cut evergreens in. 
How welcoming and festive are these?
While the sun is shining I am off to ring in this merry season around our house!
Hope you have a wonderful day!
