Christmas is quickly coming upon us! I don’t know about you but I love making our entire house (tiny yard included) extra festive this time of year! Thanks to The Home Depot, I’ve already made a head start outdoors! I’ve mentioned before that our small yard is an extension of our home, even in December. Although New Mexico isn’t necessarily warm enough to entertain outdoors year round, it isn’t as cold as, say Fargo. 😉 Either way, we utilize this space for our great, big Christmas Eve party and it really is a lifesaver that evening. We have an outdoor fire pit and heater, so everyone is pretty comfortable. It at least allows for our guests to decide where they want to hang out and to move around. Our living space is limited, so we utilize the entire house for this particular party.
Since our patio is very visible throughout our downstairs living spaces, I like for it sparkle extra this time of year too! Taking on The Home Depot’s Holiday Style Challenge this year has been extra fun as I’ve had to think outside of the box (my house) a bit more. I knew I wanted for this space to incorporate several things this holiday season.
I think it’s safe to say that the majority of us want our houses to have that extra sparkle this year and Christmas lights are one of our favorite ways to add that sparkle, am I right?!? I chose these larger incandescent string lights to brighten our tree even more than before! I love these string lights. The glow is warm and the price is right!
I always enjoy a touch of whimsy to any space but especially at Christmastime! I felt a few or a small family of LED Lighted White Deer and these amazing birch trees would add just that! Notice the three deer…for our own three daughters. 😉 I could not love these gorgeous LED deer more! They’re from the Serenity Outdoor Collection, which is SO lovely by the way! Thejingle collars and pretty pinecone bows are such beautiful details.
These LED birch trees are gorgeous too and I am sure they may end up inside some time in the future as well. Just look at them! They really would be beautiful anywhere! As you know, I also have a thing for nature so these deer and birch trees check off that category as well. Double win!
A pop of color even a neutral or metallic or plaid in this case always helps to take a space to the next level. I have really been craving a more traditional and organic Christmas this year. This plaid woven throw is perfect outdoors or indoors! We love to bring a cozy blanket out here to cuddle up next to the fire pit with a warm drink and wonderful book. This plaid beauty is absolutely perfect!
I think this space is ready for a Christmas party and every day in between, don’t you? I love that The Home Depot carries so much to choose from and something for everyone! Be sure to check out the rest of their holiday decor for indoors and outdoors. You will not be disappointed!
One more space completed and a cozy space to retreat to in this holiday season! Happy holiday decorating!
