Classic Outdoor Holiday Decor

Nothing rings in the holidays more than spending time decorating with family. As a fairly new homeowner, Taryn Newton of Glamorous Versatility was able to take advantage of a few Home Depot products to create a classic outdoor holiday decor for her yard in an affordable way.

The holidays are here! I can’t believe we are in December and Christmas will be here before we know it! I love decorating our home, and getting it all decked out for the holidays. One of my favorite areas to decorate is the outside of our home. Ever since becoming a homeowner a couple years ago, I have loved having the opportunity to make a festive statement for extra curb appeal.

The Process

Shopping for outdoor decor can be a bit overwhelming thinking about what style to get, how much stuff is too much, and trying to stay in budget. I followed this process to with making my selections.

  1. Browsed the outdoor holiday decor section on homedepot.com. Browsed each item to see which items caught my eye the most. There are so many products to choose from. You can go the route of inflatables or even nativity scenes.
  2. Assess your lawn before picking your items. You will want to get decor that will fit the style of your home.
  3. Start selecting items that will be cohesive. I opted to get a light angel and reindeer as I felt the aesthetic matched the most. I also chose to get white lights to frame the house to match the lawn figurines.
  4. Shop in store or online. What I love about The Home Depot is they have a huge selection both in store and online. Life can get a bit hectic so I opted to do my shopping online. If I was on a time crunch I would have taken advantage of their buy online, pick up in store option. I had these items delivered to my home and it was a breeze.
  5. Get to decorating! We hung the garland, put together the lawn figurines, and hung the door wreath. All of the items were easy to assemble. Don’t forget to stake your items because the moment the wind hits it will knock the items over.

Quick tip: I would first designate time to assemble the items, then decorate.

The Review

We absolutely loved the way everything turned out! The boys always love when we decorate our home. Next year, the boys are already making requests to get a giant inflatable Santa! Have fun with decorating and make it a fun family activity. Our boys had so much fun help in any capacity their little hands could!

When it comes to Christmas decor, the sky’s the limit! Nichol Naranjo was able to think outside of the box and take advantage of a few Home Depot products to demonstrate how holiday decor can easily extend to your patio area.

Christmas is quickly coming upon us! I don’t know about you but I love making our entire house (tiny yard included) extra festive this time of year! Thanks to The Home Depot, I’ve already made a head start outdoors! I’ve mentioned before that our small yard is an extension of our home, even in December. Although New Mexico isn’t necessarily warm enough to entertain outdoors year round, it isn’t as cold as, say Fargo. 😉 Either way, we utilize this space for our great, big Christmas Eve party and it really is a lifesaver that evening. We have an outdoor fire pit and heater, so everyone is pretty comfortable. It at least allows for our guests to decide where they want to hang out and to move around. Our living space is limited, so we utilize the entire house for this particular party.

Since our patio is very visible throughout our downstairs living spaces, I like for it sparkle extra this time of year too! Taking on The Home Depot’s Holiday Style Challenge this year has been extra fun as I’ve had to think outside of the box (my house) a bit more. I knew I wanted for this space to incorporate several things this holiday season.

Sparkle

I think it’s safe to say that the majority of us want our houses to have that extra sparkle this year and Christmas lights are one of our favorite ways to add that sparkle, am I right?!? I chose these larger incandescent string lights to brighten our tree even more than before! I love these string lights. The glow is warm and the price is right!

Whimsy

I always enjoy a touch of whimsy to any space but especially at Christmastime! I felt a few {or a small family} of LED Lighted White Deer  and these amazing birch trees would add just that! Notice the three deer…for our own three daughters. 😉 I could not love these gorgeous LED deer more! They’re from the Serenity Outdoor Collection, which is SO lovely by the way! Thejingle collars and pretty pinecone bows are such beautiful details.

These LED birch trees are gorgeous too and I am sure they may end up inside some time in the future as well. Just look at them! They really would be beautiful anywhere! As you know, I also have a thing for nature so these deer and birch trees check off that category as well. Double win!

Pop

A pop of color {even a neutral or metallic} or plaid in this case always helps to take a space to the next level. I have really been craving a more traditional and organic Christmas this year. This plaid woven throw is perfect outdoors or indoors! We love to bring a cozy blanket out here to cuddle up next to the fire pit with a warm drink and wonderful book. This plaid beauty is absolutely perfect!
