Deck the Halls - and the Deck

Posted 21 November 2016 6:00 PM by Jase DeBoer

It’s winter! White snow. Warm fires. Family gatherings. It’s a beautiful time of year, no matter where you live.  Maybe your home gets blanketed with snow, or maybe you hang ornaments on palm trees for the holidays. No matter where you are, we have a few decorating ideas for you.

First, make sure your  deck is winterized (check out our previous blog on how to prepare your deck for the winter months). Once that’s done,  it’s time to spruce it up for the holidays!

Holiday Wreath on Deck Rail 

Add foliage décor

Gather some garland and wrap it around your railing. Build festive bouquets to add to your deck planters. Hang wreaths from the porch lights or deck posts.

Add a Christmas tree

Who says you can’t have a Christmas tree on your deck? Gather the kids to place string popcorn or cranberries on the tree. Create pinecone birdfeeders and place these on the tree as well.

Add Lighting

Hang lights on the railing to keep your festive look after nightfall.

Add Warmth

If weather permits, place pillows and blankets on your outdoor furniture. (We recommend flannel prints!) If you have patio heaters, bring those out as well.

Your deck can look great year-round!  Make it a tradition with family and friends to decorate it for the holidays. Bribe them with hot cocoa and cookies and make it a deck decorating party.
