Add Garland.

Drap everything with garland from the deck railings, to the furniture. You can even frame the window with garland. I like to mix faux with real.

Battery-operated garland, means you don’t have to worry about cords. Just make sure it’s compatible with outdoor usage.

Add a Wreath or 2 or 3

Let’s face it Christmas decorations wouldn’t be complete without a wreath. But I say why stop at one? Add a wreath to the door, the windows on the deck railing.

Creating the snow

To create the snow I used garden fabric that I had left from protecting my plants from frost and topped it with Home Accents Holiday Snow Cover Blanket. I then sprayed a can of spray snow all over EVERYTHING to give it that wintery frost look and feel.

Create a Cozy Outdoor Spot

Create a cozy outdoor spot, perfect for the adults. A winter wonderland is cold in theory. So there should be an area where you can cozy up in front of the fire with a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy the scenery.

Holiday decorating is supposed to be fun. Don’t take it too seriously and feel as though you have to go by the book. First, I don’t know where that book is, and second, you create your own rules.
