Some factors to consider when planning for your home’s exterior décor are what themes you have in mind and what items you’ll need. The scale of your outdoor Christmas decorations and where you’ll place them is important too. In today’s post, we’re sharing five beautiful decorating ideas to ensure that your outdoors is the perfect picture of festive cheer.

A Classic Christmas

A spacious patio or front yard is perfect for larger-than-life outdoor ornaments, as decorating on a grand scale does wonders for breaking the monotony of the usual yard décor. If you have a penchant for classic Yuletide hues of red and green, then this could be the decorating theme for you. Make sure that your display area or walkway has ample room to move around in, and any electrical wires are well hidden and won’t be hazardous to guests.

Evergreen hues are a nice touch whether you live in warmer climes or colder areas. Our elegant and stately Allegheny Evergreen Outdoor Tree provides an impressive welcome for loved ones – whether surrounded by snow banks or displayed on cool winter evenings.

The Outdoor Frosted Evergreen Potted Foliage is a versatile decorating solution for those who prefer verdant accents that are smaller in stature but not lesser in impact. The pop of green against pure, white snow is a delight to come home to on overcast days. You can easily move around smaller items depending on your decorating needs. For contrast and impact, position your choice of foliage against pale walls or newly fallen snow.

A Harmonious Celebration

Ring in the season with our stalwart LED Jeweled Musical Nutcracker. This iconic, life-sized decoration features artisanal craftsmanship and calls to mind the delight of childhood Christmases. Bring joy to all who hear the cheerful melodies of popular Christmas carols, resounding from whimsical and charming decorations.

A Serene Occasion

The Yuletide season is also more than the gift-giving and bright, flashy colors. As a reminder that this is a meaningful occasion, add outdoor Christmas decorations that have subdued hues and a serene appearance. This beautiful Nativity set fits the bill, with its beautiful flowing lines, subtle tones, and solemn depiction of the Holy Family.

Hand-painted gnomes lend old world charm

Our Outdoor Santa Gnomes are a resilient addition to your home décor. Breaking away from the usual Santa Claus in classic red, these hand-painted gnomes add subtle charm to your Christmas display. Statues and figurines like these are a must for those who’d like a welcome contrast to the bright hues and cheery embellishments typically seen during this season.

A Dazzling Display
