The holidays are coming, and this is the perfect time to make your backyard oasis a centerpiece for the festivities and parties that are sure to abound. What better way to showcase your pool area in the winter months than by having a gorgeous display of holiday cheer? Everyone’s taste is different, but there are several great things that you can do to transform your summer paradise into a winter wonderland. When decorating the backyard, be sure to borrow decorating ideas from the front yard as well as from inside to really pop around the pool!
At Christmas time, you just can’t go wrong with traditional decor. Garland is a time-tested favorite that should always have a place in your decorating scheme. Wrapping your arbor with garland is a great way to showcase the shape of the feature, as well as add a touch of holiday cheer. Wreaths are also great traditional decorating pieces because they are very versatile. Wreaths and garland can be customized with different colored ribbon and ornaments specifically chosen to enhance your particular space. Add a homey holiday touch to your outdoor fireplace with a weather-resistant wreath hung over the mantel!
Set your pool and spa lights to a color that suits the holiday or your decorating scheme, and accent seating areas and even trees and fences with strings of complementary, brightly colored lights. Adding colored lights is not only festive but fun. The kids will love the new look and visitors will enjoy gathering under a magical lighting display.
Bring the Warmth of Indoors Out!
Finally, think of the things that bring special life to your interiors during this most wonderful time of the year and make use of them outside as well. Festoon table tops with candles in Christmas colors and sprigs of fresh fir, pine, or spruce. Add pops of color to outdoor seating with throw pillows made from indoor-outdoor fabric. Accent the patio with bright, potted poinsettias. You can even decorate an outdoor Christmas tree with weather-resistant decorations and outdoor lights! Stream Christmas music to outdoor speakers and provide guests with plenty of festive drinks and snacks. The possibilities are endless!
Christmas is a fun time of year to be with family and friends and make many magical memories. So embrace this time, go all out to make those you care about feel special, and remember the reason for the season: Christmas is all about love!
