Christmas decorations don’t need to be limited to being inside your house. You can brighten up your outdoor areas, including your front lawn, to showcase your love for the season, and to spread Christmas cheer to all those who pass you by.
Don’t limit Christmas to your own family. Brighten up the entire neighbourhood by decorating your front lawn. All of the children in the street, and even from the entire surrounding area, will come to visit your home, and see the impressive decorations on offer.
It is important to remember though, that outdoor Christmas decorations don’t have to be lights. There are many different features, decorations and statues that you can use during the festive season – ones that will stand out and look brilliant to everyone who sees them.
Inflatable Christmas displays
If you are looking for a visually striking and impressive Christmas display, then you will surely love to include an inflatable Christmas-themed statue in your front yard. While fairy lights shine and glimmer, an inflatable display goes that one step further. Nobody passing by your home will be able to miss the large inflatable feature that spreads Christmas cheer and is completely and utterly fun.
Young children love inflatable Christmas features because they provide them on-going joy. From the moment that they are unpacked and spread out on your lawn, to the magical moment of seeing them rise and inflate with air, to that final moment when the inflatable statue stands tall and proud in their front yard.
The great thing about inflatable displays is that they come in a variety of themes. No matter what your beliefs and values for Christmas, you will find an inflatable display that easily expresses your personal message of the season. Perhaps you want to celebrate the birth of Christ, or maybe you want fun and jolly times with Santa Clause. There is certainly an appropriately themed inflatable display for your front yard this Christmas.
A Christmas nativity scene
You can celebrate the birth of Christ by creating your own nativity scene in your front yard. Involve the entire family in the process of designing and choosing the pre-made nativity scene, or the one that you create yourself. You can easily purchase a beautiful and impressive nativity scene that features the baby Jesus and his loving parents in the manger. This scene can be proudly included in your front yard decorations, and send good wishes and cheer to everyone that passes it by. Remember that everyone celebrates Christmas in different ways, and a Christmas nativity scene with the little baby Jesus may be simply perfect for you.
Wreaths and garlands
Create a magical and seasonal front door that welcomes everyone that enters your home during the season of Christmas. You can certainly decorate your front yard, but ensure that you finalise any display with a seasonal wreath or garland on your front door. Guests that you invite to join you in celebrations will instantly feel welcomed, and you will finish off your outdoor decorating with finesse and charm. There are many different types and styles of wreaths and garlands, from traditional to contemporary to completely unique. There will certainly be a perfect wreath, for your home and for your family.
Outdoor Christmas trees
Christmas is not Christmas without a decorated tree. Christmas trees spread magic and cheer to all those who see it, including adults and children. They are wonderful to decorate as a family, and they also provide a place to store presents until they are opened – but did you know that you can have a Christmas tree both inside and outside.
Many families choose to establish Christmas trees in their front yards for the entire street to see. They can be decorated with the usual items, including tinsel and baubles, and you can either use one of your existing trees that are planted there, or purchase a temporary Christmas tree that you introduce into your yard especially for the season.
If you are going to decorate the outside of your home this Christmas, then you will certainly want to include fairy lights. They can hang from your roof, your doorways and windows, and remember that they come in an almost endless selection of colours, shapes and styles.
