The Christmas holiday mood lasts for well over three weeks, given that subtle décor can be seen in different places at the start of December and stays up until New Year’s. That’s an awfully long time to have your outdoors looking drab. A beautifully decorated home exterior will brighten your mood and cheer up everyone who walks by or into your home. Here is how to do it.
Use living Christmas trees : Line up your driveway with live Christmas trees for the most natural look. This is also one of the easiest ways to incorporate holiday décor into the existing outdoor plan. The trees will blend well with any plants, trees and shrubbery you already have in the compound and will add seasonal glamour to your driveway.
Create a faux forest : You won’t be getting rid of any trees or plants in the yard for this. Simply add a number of faux pines, firs, silver and gold trees for an interesting mix. Add lights to complete the holiday look. Your forest should be in a highly visible location, preferably near your entryway or porch.
Lights and more lights : Christmas lights brighten up the outdoors in a mighty way. Whether you prefer a magnificent light display or simple twinkle lights, lighting up your outdoors will liven up your home and make it more inviting.
Extending the holiday decoration to the outdoors is an effective way of spreading the festive mood and making it your home warm and inviting.
