Outdoor Holiday Decorating Tips

Outdoor Holiday Decorating Tips

The winter season is upon us, and so are the outdoor holiday decorating festivities. What better way to capture the holiday spirit than to dress up your home for the season! As the leading OKC landscaping and outdoor design company, we have been decorating and preparing houses for the winter holidays for many years.

Red Valley Landscape OKC Outdoor Holiday DecoratingThrough the years we have learned that some decorations are better than others, especially when considering that these decorations need to survive the winter weather. In Oklahoma, we have quite a bit of wind and ice that can wreak havoc on flimsy decorations. Because of this, it is important that you select decorations that are sturdy and shatterproof.

For instance, if you want to slip a few ornaments on your outdoor furnishings or trees, make sure the ornaments are tied securely, and made of plastic, not glass. If you are stringing a garland above your outdoor fireplace, use nails or wire to secure the garland to the façade. Glue, tape, and other temporary adhesives will deteriorate when exposed to the weather.

Any lights and lawn figurines need to be safely tethered to their surroundings. Do not be frugal when it comes to using nails and stakes to secure your lights and decorations. You will regret it when your beautiful decorations disappear from your property, or when your life-sized Rudolph deer has blown into your neighbor’s vehicles!

Most importantly, have fun! The holidays are filled with festive colors, lights, glitter and shine. Try incorporating these outdoor holiday decorating notes into your designs. It can be as simple as throwing a few logs into your outdoor fire pit, wrapping your guest up in cozy plaid blankets, and serving them hot cocoa by your outdoor fireplace.
