Holiday Lawn Decor
Choosing the right holiday lawn decor is as much about you expressing your personality as it is about helping people feel welcome when they visit. From the stash of carved pumpkins you put at the door for Halloween to the wreath made of hearts for Valentine’s Day, your decorations play a vital role in your celebrations.
Not sure what kinds of decor are out there? Usually, holiday lawn decor is designed specifically to fit into the motifs of each given holiday. For example, your Thanksgiving decorations will probably feature a harvest theme, which could include cornstalks, pumpkins and gourds, and turkeys. Christmas items usually feature a manger, angels, Christmas trees, or snowmen. Valentine's Day brings hearts and roses. And at Easter, you'll see your fair share of beautiful eggs, rabbits, and colorful baskets.
Additionally, each holiday item will be made of specific types of materials. Wood, wrought iron, plastic, and fabric count as just some of the materials you’ll find. Choose the type of material that best fits your home's architectural style as well as your personal style.
Finally, it’s best to plan your decor ahead of time. Not only will you need to look at your budget, but you’ll also want to assess how much time you have for upkeep. The best decorations for you won’t break the bank and may not require a lot of upkeep after they’re put up.
Remember that when you’re decorating your front lawn for each holiday, you want the look to be complete. Don’t forget to search for decorations for your windows, your sidewalks, and your front porch. In fact, when planning out your displays, it might be helpful for you to make a sketch of where you want each item to go. Be sure to pencil in any particulars about each item as you add it to your planning chart such as price, dimensions, whether it’s part of a set, etc.
This gives you a visual representation of how each will look in your yard. It’ll also tell you if you’re staying on budget, while still allowing you to express your tastes and individuality.
