Talk about an adventure, as there weren't any highways.
All two lane roads. The Adirondacks received more snow then where we lived.
The highlight of Christmas eve after church, was taking my grandma in the car to see all the outside Christmas decorations in different villages. She loved looking at the lights.
Today, many people decorate during the holidays with their own personality. Some may say the holidays have gotten way too commercial.
I think it is up to each individual and their budget when decorating. Below are some different pictures of houses that are decorated outside.
The first two photos are options for outside Christmas decorating. The first house has an overall scheme laid out so there are different focal points. The yard and the house.
The second picture shares a full holiday theme with lights. The wreath becomes the focal point with multiple lights of red, green, and white accenting the wreath. Wow, talk about lighting up your property!
What a view with holiday lights in the foreground and the ocean as an accent. Of course you can also decorate a beach house or tropical home with colors that reflect beach and Caribbean themes.
I enjoy doing something like this in our beach and Caribbean focused family room. I will use orange, yellow, teal, orange, and other tropical colors with lights, and other accessories.
You can continue this atmosphere right through the holiday season. Beside the lights, add a few of your favorite holiday items next to a palm tree, or a building. Another thought is to match your tropical outside lighting to your indoor decor.
Incorporating what your beliefs into outside holiday decorating allows you to share you hertiage and faith with others.
I like the idea of people learning about different faiths, as well as seeing how others decorate both inside and outside during the holidays.
The white lights accenting the sign creates a warm and yet crisp look. One main color lights and this house keeps the mood in a simple tone.
The decorations continue in the yard with bringing in the traditional red and green lights. Great way of decorating using your own style. You can also think about using your front of the home as a focal point, or some feature in your yard, such as a tree or outdoor feature.
How many times have you driven by a house and wanted to peak in as you saw the holiday tree all decorated.
The second picture shows you a close up of a Christmas tree that one would see from looking outside in. We have vaulted ceilings in our home, and have had tall Christmas trees. I love once we get the tree all decorated to walk out in the front yard and see how the tree looks from the outside looking in.
If there are shrubs planted around the gazebo, add some colored or white miniature lights around the shrubs. Whether you do one or three shrubs, or all shrubs, step back and see it the lights balance out with the rest of your outside decorating.
Working together and creating a festive atmosphere to greet family and friends adds to the joy of the holidays. If you haven't different faiths in your neighborhood, make special places to show the diversity in your neighborhood.
Go ahead and check out other holiday decorating ideas. Plan now for a relaxing and rewarding special time of the year. Another option is greenery wrapped around the columns with red bows. Either one can give you the look and feel of an old time Christmas.
Whatever style of home, apartment, beach house, condo, or a trailer, take your own personality and create holiday decorations that you can share with others, and also enjoy throughout the season.
