With the holidays almost here, now is the time to start thinking about your outdoor Christmas decor. Tasteful outdoor holiday decorations attract attention from neighbors and passersby and add curb appeal to your home. Luckily, it is very easy to make the exterior of your home warm and welcoming for the holidays. You can even use your existing landscape lighting to highlight Christmas decor. Here are some easy ways to add a timeless, festive look to your front yard.
#1 Light Up Your Deck Or Patio
One way to put a sparkle in the holidays is to decorate your patio or deck. This area can be a festive place for guests to gather during the holidays especially if you live in a mild climate. Transform your patio into a magical winter wonderland by attaching string lights to the sides of your deck or wall. You can also place lights inside outdoor planters.
#2 Illuminate Your Tree Decorations
Outfit your trees with Christmas decorations and then use exterior landscape lights to accent the trees. To highlight the tree's foliage and branches, use flood lights with wide beams. If it is a very large tree, use three to four lights.
#3 Highlight Your Front Porch
Your front porch is very important when it comes to welcoming holiday visitors to your home. You can hang a pair of wreaths on the door, place mini evergreens around the porch or place a festive wooden sign near your entryway. No matter what decorations you use, you'll want to highlight them with the proper lighting. Contact a lighting expert for ways to best enhance your front porch decorations.
