A holiday home that’s beautifully decorated inside and outside is a great way to spread the Christmas spirit. Even more for your front door, porch and backyard because these areas set the tone for the rest of the house. For an overall warm and welcoming ambiance, make your outdoor spaces as inviting as your indoors with festive Christmas decorations. Don’t we instantly feel the joy and magic of the holiday season, whenever we pass by a home with festive outdoor Christmas decorations?
Here are our 4 steps on how we decorate your entryway and outdoor space for Christmas from our Dallas designers:
1. We Help You Pick a Theme
Your decorating theme is one of the first things to think about when planning your outdoor decor. Settling on a theme will give you an idea on how you’ll accomplish the look and what things you will need. If you want to go with a more simple look, let your outdoor theme match your indoor decorations, so you get a cohesive look throughout your home. Otherwise, start fresh and bring a new look to your outdoor space!
2. Set Key Decor Pieces
Once you have picked a theme, you can identify which key items will choose to pull the look together. Our designers can draw inspiration from an object or decoration that capture the look and feel you are going for. If you are after a winter wonderland theme, for instance, you can start with a frosted wreath and garland draping around your front door with pops of red berries. From this focal point, it’s easier to add interesting themed elements.
3. Think About Placement
Outdoor decorations vary in sizes but tend to be larger compared to indoor ones, making them more visible from afar. It’s important to consider the scale of your outdoor Christmas decorations and have a plan where you will display them. For safety, we make sure all of your decor won’t block areas where people walk or obstruct visibility of the driveway or road.
4. Make It Dazzle At Night
One way people will surely notice your decorated home at night as much as in the daytime is to keep your outdoor space well-lit. Our Dallas designers use pre-lit white LED lights to frame your door or porch with garland, wreaths, lit stick arrangements and smaller topiary trees with frosted elements. This is the perfect way to create a welcoming sight in the evening.
