Getting Started on your Outdoor Christmas Decorations

Stick With a Single Theme
If you want your outdoors to look stunning, avoid mixing and matching items. Have a single theme or design in mind and create a clean, organized look. Choosing a theme is not hard, just go with what you like. For a rustic look, use white lights, pine cones, red bows, raffia, and ferns. If you want sparkle and shine, use ornaments with silver, gold, and glitter. A whimsical and fun look can be achieved with brightly colored ornaments and colored lights. Avoid putting too many ornaments that will turn the place into an eyesore. Keep it simple and leave your neighbors in awe.

Make an Impact with Statement Pieces
Just as you accessorize a dress, your exterior needs accessories to look good. Create a statement design and embellish it sparingly with the season’s fresh blooms. Drape ferns on your front steps or porch and adorn them with white lights to create a starry effect. Highlight the ferns with bows to produce vibrant color and keep the decorations around them simple.
Use Natural Elements
There are many natural elements you can use to add a nice feature to your outdoor décor. These include spruce, holly, evergreen, sea grass, raffia, and wheat straw. Some of these elements give your outdoors a fresh look while others add a rustic touch. You can also hang wreaths, lights, ribbons, and greenery on the picket fence, mailbox, and outdoor window panes.
