    Default Outdoor Christmas Decorations

    First off, I'm ridiculously excited that this year I have an entire house I can decorate for Christmas. It sure beats putting up just one tree in our 700sq apartment!

    Thing is, I really want to do the front yard. Nothing crazy, just the huge white pine up front, the 3 light columns and the small plants next to the light columns.
    I also want to do the front deck, the small garden right in front of the house, and put a couple of nice wreaths on both garage doors.

    Of course, I don't even know where to start. Was hoping you guys can share pics of what you do for inspiration..

    This is the first year in this house so I went with the easy route. It looks better with the front porch lights off but my mother wanted to see the fake poinsettias and the wreath so I turned the front porch light on. I will hang icicle lights along the front of the house next year

    I LOVE Christmas and i'm pretty close to Griswold status at my house. I'm pretty sure it's tacky so you may not want my advice hahaha.
    I have a huge wood santa and reindeer that my mom made in my front yard and the house has lights everywhere.
    Inside is like Christmas threw up everywhere.

    If i were you, i would go all out since it's your first time!

    Pics??

    I can't go all out this year We don't even have furniture in yet. We've been staying in the finished basement when we go up.
    Even my kitchen just had the cabinets installed, but I found out the counter tops I chose (the slabs) are reserved for someone else so waiting on their next shipment so I can choose the slabs again.
    The house is pretty much bare. That's one of the reasons I really wanna do the outside.

    We have grapevine reindeer, and this year I got an owl and a mouse… I also have Ray put up lights to border the front of the house. My fav are those icicle lights, but we have so many A frames that Ray would probably fall off the roof trying to put it all up… Lol I'm not sure I have any pics…

    That stinks about your countertops. You are a trooper for re-doing a house....takes so much patience.

    Since you can't go all out this year, shop the after Christmas sales and stock up for next year when you can!!!

    I will take a pic of our tonight and post later. We string lights on the house on both levels, wrap the entire porch in fresh pine, and have 4 inflatables on the lawn. We ususally do white icecile (sp) lights but this year I wanted color so we went with that.
    My smooshy face boy!

    We do very simple white lights around the windows and front door.... this year Lewis did the top of our fence in the yard... look really nice, I will try to get a picture for you tonight.

    I really want to get one of these, but can't bring myself to pay that price for it
