Holiday music is on the radio, stores are already starting to decorate and holiday ads are playing on TV. That can only mean one thing, the holiday season is officially upon us! Christmas is just right around the corner and we are so excited to ring in the most wonderful time of the year.
How do you decorate? Do you begin after Thanksgiving? Before? Last minute? Whatever it is, we have some great things to decorate the exterior of your home to make it look like a winter wonderland.
Here are the Top 5 Ways To Decorate The Outside of Your House For The Holidays:
Holiday Decorations – Inflatables
There are so many options when it comes to picking out the perfect inflatable (or inflatables) for your lawn. You could go for a classic Santa with his reindeer, the Grinch sneaking into a chimney, or even a baby yoda holding a candy cane. They are an easy setup but also look great. They provide humor during the day when they are deflated on the lawn.
Great places to look for Holiday themed inflatables: Home Depot, Wayfair, Lowes or Amazon.
Holiday Decorations – Lights on trees/bushes
Christmas lights are one of the best ways to decorate your home. You could go all white or opt for colors, like blue, red, green, etc. There’s nothing better than driving around local neighborhoods and checking out their holiday decorations, especially all the lights.
Light up deer
One of many classic decorations. There are two options on where to put reindeer: either on the lawn or on the roof (since that’s where they wait as Santa puts presents underneath Christmas trees). Some deer even move, causing a life-like effect.
A Wreath for your door
Another classic decoration is the wreath. Wreaths come in all different shapes and sizes. From ornament made wreaths, wreaths with pine cones in them, or the classic wreath with a big red ribbon. You’re sure to find the perfect one for your front door! Many people even choose to make their own.
A great way to make your house really stand out and shine is icicle lights! They provide the effect of snow without actually having it. Plus, they light up the house beautifully.
When searching for the perfect decorations for this year’s festivities, check out some local businesses! Also, be sure you are celebrating safely by following CDC guidelines to keep everyone safe from COVID-19!
