For all the hub-bub and goings on during the holiday season, we tend to, especially as adults, forget the true meaning and purpose of the holidays.
Specifically, letting your inner child run wild and free when it comes to decorating the outside / front yard of your home is a pastime which we highly recommend partaking in.
Even though you may find yourself spending a few extra bucks and dedicating time to putting up and taking down your holiday decorations, We at Volk Homes and Exteriors would argue that those small troubles are well worth it to be able to deck out your property in whichever way your and your family see fit.
So, sit back and relax as we offer up a few tips for successfully decorating and sprucing up your outdoor space for holiday season.
1) Search For Inspiration
As you prep for your holiday decorating, one of the best things you can do is drive around your neighborhood or greater community to view others’ work. Not only is this a wonderful way to spend an evening with your family, but it could also be used as a yearly tradition moving forward for you and yours.
In addition, while viewing others’ property, be mindful to not completely copy something you may see in someone else’s outdoor holiday decorations. You may think to yourself that hey, they live miles away and won’t know that I have copied their style. But this is one of those unwritten rules of mutual respect which should be followed if possible.
2) What Style Defines You?
As you are planning and gathering your thoughts via neighborhood viewing sessions, you can start asking yourself, what is muy style and how should it be presented?
There are quite a few different outdoor holiday decorating styles to choose from, and this decision simply boils down to what you like and how you want your property to look. From classic red and green lights, to full-size Santa and his reindeer set-ups, there is darn near an item for any type of style.
Simplistic and modern decorations also have their place in the world of outdoor holiday decorations, and the key to this style is clean lines and sparkling white lights.
Tasteful wreaths also complement this decorating style well.
3) Don’t Leave Your Decorations Up For Too Long
It takes a lot of work to put up your holiday decorations, and therefore a lot of mustered will power to take down your decorations at the end of the holiday season. While there are many opinions as to when your decorations should come down, the middle of January tends to be a good time. You can leave your decorations up a couple weeks past New Year’s so you can enjoy it for a little bit longer, but you’re not leaving them up for so long that neighbors start to question your judgement.
