Outdoor Holiday Decorating Inspired by Mother Nature

Posted by in Landscape Design | 0 comments

What’s your favorite kind of outdoor holiday decorating?

As I was driving to an event the other night after dark, I passed one of those homes that was lit up like a firecracker for the holidays.

They had lights of every color outlining the house, the shrubs and the walkway. It all flashed and blinked and there were a couple of blow ups (I recall a ten foot tall Santa and a giant nutcracker) to top it all off.

For me, Mother Nature is so elegant, that simply gathering what is available to us can create the most beautiful celebration of the season.

Take a look at some of the ideas here, and see if you don’t agree.

Leverage your garden furnishings and architectural features for outdoor holiday decorating.

A Glorious Wreath in Shades of Green with Red Accents

The best part about all of this is that it is all recyclable, you won’t be adding landfill, but instead what the birds haven’t eaten becomes garden protection as the temperatures are typically lowest in January and February.

There’s no need to haul off your decorations but simply scatter them. You’ll save, time, effort and enjoy the bounty of Mother Nature.

And the evergreens you bring indoors for garlands, wreaths, or over the door accents will add the wonderful fragrance of the season without requiring you to stock up on potpourri, scented candles, plugins or sprays (unless you want to.)

Outdoor holiday decorating can be fun, elegant, and affordable when you embrace the elegance of Mother Nature.
