Fun Christmas Decorating — Outdoors Style

Whether you live where “White Christmas” is your annual theme song or your favorite Christmas Day dinner is a steak, grilled outside on the patio…your outdoor décor can say “Christmas” in an almost infinite number of ways. Lights are almost everyone’s favorites, whether they’re colored strings on outdoor trees, a thousand tiny white twinkles on bared branches, or shaped décor such as lighted Santas, stylized “trees” that look as if they’re made of lighted ribbon, or stars glowing from doorways or windows. For daytime, dress your doorways with pine garlands, red ribbons, or showers of snowflakes; tall toy soldiers, nutcrackers, and a cheery Santa on your mailbox will bring smiles to passersby. How about a wreath for the porch? Go traditional, with evergreens and holly — or unique, with pine cones or ice skates tied with ribbon.

Touch up a vine wreath form with gold ornaments and glitter — or make a cluster of greenery, bells, and ribbons that isn’t a “wreath” at all. Top clay pots from summer flowers with evergreen branches, pine cones, and bows; hang a wind chime shaped like an angel or snowman; fill your planters with “birds’ nests” of light or sprigs of red berries and large round ornaments. Miniature ornamental gold sleighs, trimmed with red ribbons, bespeak holiday goodies to come. You can set up a “picket fence” garden of window boxes bearing tiny decorated branch “trees,” or place pine and sprigs of holly berries in hanging planters…and that’s just the beginning of the plethora of ideas you’ll find here. Pick one or two that speak to your style, and deck your house with lots of fun!
