‘Tis the season! Time to break out the holiday decorations and spread some holiday cheer. Make the outside of your home just as festive as the inside. From twinkly lights, to festive doorways, here are some holiday lawn décor ideas to help you spread holiday cheer around your home.
Whether your hosting a holiday party, or just expecting a bunch of shipments, the exterior of your home is going to be the first thing people see when they visit you this holiday.

You don’t have to stick to the traditional Christmas colors of red and green. Try incorporating unconventional colors like fuchsia, teal, purple, and royal blue. An easy and innovative way to use these colors is by stuffing oversized lanterns filled with multicolored ornaments for a vibrant burst of seasonal cheer.
Skip the outdated holiday window stickers and hang grapevine wreaths in each of your front windows for outdoor holiday décor with simple charm.
