With the days getting shorter and darkness closing in ever earlier, time outside enjoying your backyard during the summer seems a distant memory. But it doesn’t need to be! Check out our 4 ways to turn your backyard into a winter wonderland this year!
Merry and Bright
Small lights look beautiful all year round but during the holiday season, they are extra special. If you have an outdoor seating area, hang Christmas lights around doors or from roofs to create a softly lit, magical atmosphere that you can enjoy all evening.
Dress Up The Trees
If you have plenty of foliage in your backyard, use this to your advantage! Hang ornaments from branches, line small shrubs with lights and ribbon, and hook stockings to any natural nooks on tree trunks. You could even create an outdoor advent calendar for your children with a winter treasure hunt!
Around The Fire
Campfires are not just for summer and can make your backyard feel even more festive this year, especially if you have no indoor fireplace. Stack some logs around your seating area as both supplies for the fire and seasonal decoration, and keep some marshmallows to hand for a snack to warm you up!
Comfy and Cozy
You can make your backyard look incredible but why bother if it is too cold to enjoy it? Keep a wicker basket full of wool blankets and gloves beside the door so that you can enjoy your newly decorated backyard even when the temperatures start to drop! A campfire kettle would also be a great addition to make hot chocolate or hot apple cider on those cold winter nights.
These simple additions to what you already have can transform any backyard into a winter wonderland that you can enjoy with your friends and family all holiday season.
