Easy Outdoor Patio Decorations
Looking for some simple outdoor patio decorations for the upcoming holidays? Dust off that old toboggan and skates! Use what you have or find something new this year, but keep in mind that decorations can be flashy – or subtle. Your front porch is the first thing your visitors see during the holidays, so get creative!
Front Porch Outdoor Patio Decorations
Lean that antique sled you have tucked away in your garage against a wall in your entryway or on your front porch. Tie on a sparkly bow. Add a pair of ice skates and a colorful scarf to your front door, mailbox, or back porch. How about a snow-covered garland? Even if it adorns the railing at the end of your palm-tree lined walkway, snow-sprinkled greenery brings some of the snowy season to your patio. Add a set of string-lights for an evening glow.
A seasonal wreath on your front door is welcoming whether you choose artificial materials or fresh greenery. You may find a fun wreath-making workshop this time of year that can jump-start your decorating. Check out your local home and garden center for classes or already finished products.
How to Add Decorations to your Backyard Outdoor Patio
For the backyard area, whether you have a porch, deck, or patio, this can be a main gathering spot during the holidays. If your focal point is your pergola kit adorned with string lights, consider adding a potted mini evergreen, or fresh flowers or seasonal plants to soften and enhance that space.
This is a good way to put your planter box to use that’s sitting empty during the winter season. You can put a smaller potted evergreen right in your garden boxes for the holiday season. After your outdoor patio decorations are in place and ready for visitors, stock up on firewood for your outdoor fireplace or get the grill ready for an outdoor gathering place that’s sure to be relaxing!
