Designing Outdoor Christmas Displays

Outdoor Christmas displays can be fun to look at as you drive through your neighborhood during the holiday season. However, they aren't always fun to put together. If you live in an area where everyone goes all out, it can be a bit overwhelming to try to keep up. This is especially true if you are new to your neighborhood and haven't been decorating the same house and yard for a number of years. After all, the neighbors have had years to fine tune design ideas and tweak things that didn't work right. Fortunately, there are things you can do to make your display choices easier.

  • Choose a simple color scheme for your decorations and stick to it. If you're doing a blue and white yard and only buy decorations in those colors, you won't have to worry about putting things that clash beside each other.
  • Concentrate on the house and foundation plantings the first year. Next year, expand your display a few feet into the yard. When you only have to concentrate on adding new decorations to part of your yard each year, you can really work on making that part look fantastic.
