You’ve Decked the Halls, Now Decorate Outside

It’s easy to get caught up with decorating and gearing up for the holidays inside by putting up a Christmas tree or menorah, baking, and wrapping presents. But, the outside of your home is what greets you on your way home from work or after a holiday shopping frenzy. Show your gazebo and other outdoor elements some holiday decorating love with our take on some fresh ideas:

Make your mailbox more than a placeholder for Christmas cards
This is a simple way to spread holiday cheer: Fasten cedar, fir and berries around your mailbox. Spray white paint on the ends of the tree branches to create a snow effect. Top it off with a big, bright red bow.

Add a Christmas tree to your gazebo
A bright and shining Christmas tree inside a gazebo with snow all around it is such a romantic sight to see. Keep decorating simple though: ornaments aren’t necessary outside. All you’ll need are strands and strands of white lights (and energy!!). Have you always dreamed of looking outside your window at this picture?

Not in the Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa spirit?
The holidays aren’t just the month of December. There’s plenty of holidays to decorate for year round. For instance, a customer purchased a gazebo for his town’s courthouse square after his Illinois town was asked to do something memorable for Abraham Lincoln’s 200th birthday. The town dressed the gazebo up in round American flags. You can add planted flowers to the gazebo steps to bring warmth to this look.

A rustic twist on entryway decorating
Diverge from the standard wreath on the door and change up your entryway by adding lanterns strung by nautical rope. Hang them all around your doorway outside. Add a strand of lights around the door to create an intimate touch for when the sun goes down.
