Holiday decorations need not be limited to extensive illuminated displays on the roof and themed decorations inside the four walls of your home. You may find great pleasure in subtly decking out your garden for the holiday season, and there are plenty of options to bring the holiday spirit to the garden without looking tacky or artificial.
Lights are an attractive element for a garden backyard anytime of year. Adjust lighting for the holidays to include spiral trees or lighted wire reindeer. Since these are standalone lighting pieces, they won’t weigh down plants, and their frames are subtle enough to provide the natural look you want in the garden while ensuring a definite holiday theme.
Signage is always welcome in the garden, and holiday signage can be whimsical without being overbearing. Replace existing signs or flags during the holidays to include fun “Santa Crossing” signs or simple signs that exclaim “Peace on Earth” or “Noel.” Interchangeable holiday signs have multiple sign placards for Christmas, Thanksgiving and other holidays and they can be replaced for each change in season.
Holiday-themed planters and pots are another subtle means of decorating your garden for Christmas. Place plastic liner pots inside themed planters to decorate your potted plants for the holidays. Decorating your own planters can be a fun garden activity, especially if you can’t find the exact design you’re looking for.
When it comes to outdoor holiday decorating, finding your perfect balance between natural and commercial can be an interesting challenge. With the right pieces, decorating your garden can become a special part of your holiday traditions, and you’ll enjoy looking for new pieces to add to your Christmas garden collection.
