Spruce Up Your Landscaping for the Holidays
Toss out those pumpkins, Middle Tennessee! The Halloween season has officially come and gone, which means the end of the year is almost here. But before we say hello to the new year, there are a few more holidays ahead of us. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate than giving your home a cheerful makeover with holiday decorations.
Here are a few holiday landscaping ideas for both outside and inside your home:
Front Porch Décor
The holidays are the perfect time to take your front porch décor from simple to extravagant. Hanging a wreath on your door can instantly add a warm, holiday feeling. Add jingle bells, pinecones, and ribbons to your wreath if you’re feeling extra festive.
Another way to spruce up your front entrance is using garland, whether you prefer hanging it around the frame of your doorway or lining any railings.
While we advise against being the Clark Griswold of the block, stringing up lights is an easy way to brighten up your home and strengthen your curb appeal. A few ideas include lining your front walkway, wrapping tree trunks, railings, and lampposts, and draping lights over any bushes. Keep in mind that the ideal time to use holiday lights is the end of November through December.
Who says greenery should only stay outside? Using a variety of evergreens can boost the holiday cheer. Some of the best evergreens to use include holly, pine, spruce, and ivy, because they don’t dry out as quickly as other plants and can be used in many areas around your home.
Hosting holiday parties might be out of the question this year. That doesn’t mean you can’t add a bit of cheer to your dining room or end tables. Take a few sprigs of evergreens and add them to a vase.
Strands of garland can be used in both indoor and outdoor settings. It’s a versatile accessory and instantly adds holiday cheer. A few ideas for indoor use include hanging around door frames, laying them across the mantle, or arranging them on longer tables.
We hope these holiday décor ideas have given you inspiration for the upcoming months. It’s fun to plan and get in the spirit, right?
