Holiday - Seasonal Inspired Outdoor Decorating That Lasts
Have you wondered how you can decorate for each season and holiday without spending tons of money and transfer some of your decorations to the next season or holiday? Looking for the best holiday decorating outdoor ideas? Please take a moment and look at these beautiful seasonal photos from BHG. There is not one holiday display I wouldn't use in my own outdoor spaces and front door area. Can't wait to show some of these holiday decorating ideas to our clients. Dress up your front porch and yard with these holiday outdoor decorating ideas that last from the first days of fall through the New Year.
Winter Wall Arrangement
With a little help from Mother Nature, even outdoor walls will welcome holiday guests. Line a wire wall container with moss; fill with florist's foam. This beautiful outdoor arrangement happily overflows with Fraser fir, burgundy-dyed eucalyptus, purple caspia, winterberry holly, and poppy pods.
Juniper and Branches Christmas Container
White twigs rise from a mound of juniper, making a small container stand tall. Snowy-white Mitsumata branches lead a striking profile and contrast with the red pot and greenery. Embellish with artificial snow, pinecones, small ornament balls, and a faux cardinal.
Editor's Tip: Go out on a figurative limb with redtwig dogwood, birch, or spray-painted twigs.
Pinecone and Ornament Garland
Create a striking and festive look for your holiday front door with this pretty garland. Customize a purchased pinecone garland with ornaments that coordinate with your door color, using florist's wire to secure the ornaments. Position the garland outside the door frame, and secure at the top and along the sides with easy-to-remove self-adhesive hooks or brick clips. Finish the warm entry with white pillar candles set inside tall glass lanterns adorned with holiday berries.
Ornament and Pine-Filled Urn
Instead of hanging an evergreen wreath on your front door, use it to liven up a plain white urn. Dress up the decoration by setting lime-green and pink ornament balls on top.
Front Porch Holiday Planter
The simplest of natural touches on your front porch can create a festive welcome for holiday guests. Choose a spacious galvanized pail to house an assortment of fresh cuttings, such as fountain grass, golden Hinoki cypress, and glossy-leaf Oregon grape holly, that will last all season.
Sugar Pinecone Potted Container
A cardinal perched atop a giant pinecone from a sugar pine makes this outdoor holiday decoration pop. At the base of the cone, spruce sprigs resting on a bed of moss add the perfect seasonal touch. The design complements a potted, compact "Blue Star" juniper accented with pinecones.
Wintry Hanging Basket
Light up your front porch for the season with glowing orbs displayed in hanging baskets. Frost a basket with spray paint, add a nest of greens, and top with an indoor lamp globe. Hot-glue felt snowflakes to the globe and add a balled-up strand of battery-powered lights to finish the decoration.
Pinecone and Birch Winter Containers
Icy Holly-and-Cranberry Candleholder
Encase holly sprigs and pyracantha berries in ice that you mold in a flexible plastic ice cream bucket. Create a candleholder in the center of the ice with a recycled 2-liter bottle. Fill the gap between the two containers with branches and berries, then fill with water; freeze. Give it a traditional look by placing a red pillar candle in the center, and pose the finished arrangement in a wire basket.
Blue Spruce Twig Container
This cheery woodland-inspired container extends the season's festive mood to your outdoor spaces. A store-bought boxwood ball tops this arrangement of blue spruce twigs, offering a fresh alternative to the usual upright designs. Perch a faux bird on the boxwood ball, and scatter pinecones for easy embellishments.
Festive Window Boxes
Walkway Light Embellishments
Add holiday flair to your walkway lights in just a few simple steps. Tie a small piece of greenery and ribbon around the top of the light, add a seasonally hued candle, and use florist's wire to attach a faux cardinal.
Seasonal Window Box Greenery
Winter is a great time to explore all the color that evergreens have to offer. This window box displays at least six different varieties accented with pinecones and multicolor foliage. Add a seasonal accent to the bright red container with bits of evergreen tucked under birch logs along the edge.
Wait...don't go just yet, continue.....Holiday decorating outdoors for each season coming up next.
Have yourself a festive, creative, cheerful, and fun time decorating for each season and holiday at your home this year.
