Keep Holiday Lighting Displays Simple for Maximum Impact and Minimum Stress
Time is growing short to complete, or even begin, outdoor holiday lighting and decorating chores. For those last-minute décor warriors, the key to creating a glowing holiday look is to focus on creating maximum impact with minimal effort.
Holiday decorating displays go up in stores earlier every year, and it’s tempting to buy the latest looks. But once you go through the lights and decorations you already own, you may discover you already have everything you need to make your home feel warm and welcoming this holiday season.
Christmas Decor by Cowleys offers some outdoor decorating guidelines from the pros at Christmas Decor to get you started.
1. Find your décor focal point
Stand back and take a look at your home from a neighbor’s or visitor’s point of view. Is your front porch a stand-out feature, or is your front door the star of the show? Is there a perfect line of shrubs or a nicely-shaped tree along the path that welcomes guests? Identify your home’s most attractive features and dress them for the holidays with garlands, greenery, and lights.
2. Complete the look
If you have time, you can look for ways to enhance other areas of your yard and home to compliment your focal point design. Simply outlining windows or rooflines can extend the holiday glow across your home, and subtle hints of color can add interest and depth to your plan.
3. Keep your décor simple
Reduce your stress and improve your results by keeping your outdoor holiday display simple and classic. Too many themes and colors will detract from your focal point and confuse the overall impression. A clean, uncluttered display is more attractive, safer, and more cost-effective.
Always remember, holiday decorating should never be a chore, but a fun experience to share with your family. From everyone here at Christmas Decor by Cowleys, we wish you a beautiful holiday season this year!
