Show Your Holiday Spirit with Outdoor Christmas Decorations
Whether the weather outside is frightful or delightful, your outdoor Christmas decorations can set the stage for a forecast that is merry and bright! Don’t limit your decorating to just the mantel and tree, spread the good cheer to your front porch and yard too!
Spell It Out
Everyone has their favorite sayings or phrases about this jolly time of year, so whether you want to encourage everyone to “Believe in the miracle of the season” or to be “Merry”, or welcome friends with a Christmas sign, choose your words wisely and celebrate!
Twinkle All the Way
You can always start with the standard strings of lights around your roof-line and ledges, but don’t forget that there are plenty of outdoor lighting accents to add some sparkle. A pair of sentimental lanterns, a light-bearing snowman or adorable dogs tangled in Christmas lights for the front porch will do the trick.
Decorations that are a blast from the past, like retro sleds sitting by the front door, old-fashioned ice skates-turned-planter or a decked-out 1950s convertible ornament, all help remind us of happy holidays gone by and get everyone in the mood for mirth and merriment.
Light the Way
Start at the curb then work your way to the front porch with lighted decorations to lead carolers and visitors alike to your door. Try a set of lit Christmas trees placed on each side of your porch entrance or glowing festive solar lanterns to line your walkways.
