Outdoor Living Ideas for Holiday Decoration 

As we hole up in the house for the winter, we often overlook our outdoor living space as a source of beauty and entertainment for the season. Decorating your outdoor space for the winter adds to the beauty of your landscape, creates a focal point for your yard, and beckons family and guests outdoors at a time of year where they might not have considered it. Light your fire pit, grab some blankets and put your outdoor space to good use year round with some seasonal decorations. Even if you decide to stay indoors, the view from the house will be much more lovely if your yard is included in the festivities.


While strings of LED lights certainly shout, “Christmas!,” there are other, unique ways to add festive lighting to your yard. Firelight adds a soft ambiance, and warmth in a cold season. Tiki torches lit in the snow take on a whole new meaning, and they go well with lantern lined walkways. Add your own luminaries by placing LED battery powered candles in paper bags and use them to line your walkway or ledge. When there’s snow on the ground, you have another soft lighting option of sinking waterproof tealights down into the snow. The result is an understated glow coming up from the snow that is a nice highlight to any silent night. For overhead lighting, round paper lanterns are a nice touch.

An Inviting Entryway

For a beautiful welcome to your holiday guests, see if you can talk your kids into hanging the life-sized Santa decoration on their bedroom doors, and leave the front door open for a holiday wreath. Classic pine and holly combinations never go out of style, but using an arrangement of silk flowers typically found in the spring time gives your wreath a unique feel. In order to coordinate with your other holiday decorations, stick with blues, whites, and greens, using gold ribbon for accents.

Holiday Accents

Whether you’re planning on entertaining out on your patio, or simply creating a nice view from within the house, it’s always fun to decorate your outdoor living space for the holidays. Start by pulling off the throw pillows from your summer set, and replacing them with ones that match your indoor holiday decorations. Add some warm blankets folded neatly over the backs of your furniture to make the space more inviting. An overstated, festive centerpiece placed on your outdoor dining and/or coffee table will brighten the space up and bring your holiday spirit outdoors.
