An exquisitely decorated home exterior instantly spreads holiday cheer, not only to your family and guests but to passers-by as well. Lit up at night, your home turns into a magical scene that exudes holiday spirit. From the front door and the porch to the front lawn and fences, outdoor spaces are gorgeous backdrops for holiday décor. Heighten your curb appeal this holiday season with these stunning pieces of outdoor holiday décor:

Charming Wreaths and Garlands

Wreaths and garlands are décor essentials that can set your home apart by instantly instilling an inviting ambiance on your front porch. For a warm look that reminds everyone of home, select classic wreaths embellished with natural elements that symbolize Christmas like pine cones, apples, and berries. If you want a more personalized design, choose unadorned wreaths that provide a lush setting for your favorite ornaments. To add visual impact to your entryway, generously drape a garland around it, letting it flow to the ground for a willowy, dramatic look.

Exquisite Topiaries

Symbolizing life, elements of nature enliven home exteriors. Convenient, portable, and available in different styles, topiaries are wonderful additions to the porch. Flank your door with a pair of topiaries for a balanced, elegant appeal that never fails to impress. Look for topiaries with graceful designs as well as those that are already pre-lit for an impressive yet effortless display, like the beautifully intertwined Balsam Hill Myrtle (Helix). For a contemporary and refined look, try arranging three ball topiaries of different heights on one side of your front door.

For a more modern design, place a glowing frosted globe on top of an urn to serve as a lustrous topiary. Use larger urns if you want to pile up more globes.
