As I drive home from work each evening, I find that it takes me a little longer to get home this time of year. Swiveling my head from side to side, I drive more slowly or take a longer route in order to take in each home’s outdoorlicious holiday décor.
Captivating lights, both white and multi colored, make everything bright and cheerful-looking. Lights on the house, outlining the roofline or around the windows and doors would be tacky at any other time of the year but get a thumbs up at Christmas.
Lighted wreaths, garlands, and swags scream, “Look at me!” and I do.
Lights wrapped around trees cast Mother Nature’s natural gifts as part of the holiday display. So simple and yet so stunning.
Pots filled with greenery, balls, and ribbons are called into service to be part of the holiday decorations.
Old, found, or perhaps simply unused, items find their way into the holiday décor mix, as well. A sled propped against the house tied with ribbons and greenery makes a creative display.
A wheelbarrow used as a container to hold a Christmas tree is a clever use of an everyday object found in any gardener’s yard.
Whether brightly colored, or natural, outdoor holiday décor serves as your Christmas card to the world wishing all who pass by a Merry Christmas.
