Christmas is drawing nigh, and what better time to decorate your home inside and out for Christmas? One can celebrate the holiday just as much outdoors as in, especially if you prefer the fresh air and sunshine offered by a patio or a screened porch. To make your patio festive this year, here are several ideas for decorating your patio this Christmas.
An Outdoor Living Room
One should look at the big picture first before embarking on a decoration scheme. First, one should consider the patio to be like an outdoor living room. In recent years, outdoor living spaces are truly areas where one can relax just as easily as a living room indoors, complete with durable furniture and stylish cushions, rugs, etc. If you think of your patio this way, it will help inform your choices in decorating your patio this Christmas overall.
What Christmas living room is complete without a Christmas tree? Greenery is a classic way to furnish your outdoor living space, and one can utilize Christmas trees of different sizes for the purpose. Faux outdoor Christmas trees are an excellent, cost-effective option.
Festive Pillows & Throws
If you have outdoor furniture, you can likely leave them outdoors due to Maryland’s mild winters. If you have an enclosed patio, there is naturally no need to worry. Deck your patio furniture out with festive pillows and blankets to add charm and cheer; one can store these items away in the attic or in storage baskets when not in use.
Wreaths & Garlands
Another type of greenery to add is wreaths and garlands. One can either purchase wreaths, garlands, and swags from your local nursery or store or you could turn it into a fun holiday activity. If crafting relaxes you, then making wreaths is one way to kill two birds with one stone.
Don’t forget the lights! Light up your Christmas evenings with festive lights around the patio. One can purchase Christmas-themed lights like multi-colored bulbs or snowflake lights, or simply use a string of white lights practical for year-round use.
