Home for the holidays! The holidays are a spectacular time for decorating outdoors.
The holidays are a spectacular time for your home to shine. Decorating inside and out will not only provide joy for you and your family but for visiting friends and neighbors. It can enhance the atmosphere and increase holiday enjoyment. While a well-decorated tree and meaningful decorations can provide a special interior environment, decorating outdoors offers its own special challenges.
Here is a quick guide to decorating outdoors for the holidays.
Less Is More. Don’t get carried away with outdoor decorating. A few well-placed decorations and minimalist lighting can be just as, if not more effective, than an overwhelming experience.
Create a Wreath for Your Front Door. A trip to any craft store offers a selection of materials allowing you to create your own custom-made wreath. Choose colors and materials of meaning to you. A wreath door hanger makes placing it prominently on your front door easy.
Consider Electric Window Candles. A simple, single electric white candle in each window can be a powerful way to share the joy of the season. As an added bonus, window candles add to both the interior and exterior appearance of a home.
Emphasize an outdoor Focal Point. If your yard or home doesn’t already have an outdoor focal point, create one. Tastefully decorate a larger tree or hang an appropriate decoration on a large open space on your home’s siding. Hi-light the focal point with a spotlight or two in the evenings.
Small Touches Can Make a Big Difference. Consider small quality touches like a classy holiday-themed welcome mat, wrapping a mailbox post in ribbon or green garland or solar lights in a garden area. This attention to detail will be noticed and appreciated.
