With the holidays quickly approaching, the trees are trimmed, the presents are wrapped, and the holiday spirit surrounds us. Family gatherings, parties with friends, it’s that magical time of year again where you celebrate surrounded by the people you love. Decorating the interior of your house is a must and we all know how much fun it is to put up Christmas lights, but what about that incredible patio space you have? Here are a couple of tips for some simple and tasteful holiday decor for the patio, to make it a place everyone will enjoy for the holidays and the New Year!
There’s no better or easier way to decorate your patio for the holidays than greenery. And the great thing is, this look is perfect not only for the Holidays but for the winter season. Fresh greenery not only looks beautiful but smells beautiful too! Sprigs of holly with berries in a centerpiece on your outdoor patio table, a garland wrapped around your porch banister or even on your pergola make you feel like you’re in a winter wonderland, even if you might not have the snow.
Christmas lights can be a lot of work (picture Clark Griswold from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation) and if you’re not ready to go that big, it’s easy to add a few strands of lights to your backyard space. Integrate the lights with greenery to give a warm glow to your backyard that will make you feel cozy and festive.
Can it really be the holidays without holiday music? Put your outdoor speaker system to good use with a playlist of your favorite Christmas music.
Whether you are intending to host a festive holiday party, celebrate with your family, or maybe just relax after a day of heavy Holiday shopping, there will be nothing better than turning on the lights, relaxing with a mug of hot cocoa and enjoying a little music on your tastefully decorated patio.
Happy Holidays from all of us here at Patioworld!
