Whether you have a backyard paradise complete with a swimming pool, spa, fireplace, and outdoor kitchen, or you are still planning your outdoor entertainment, these backyard decorating ideas can liven up your space and create a festive and inviting way to celebrate the holiday season.

Decorating Trees and Shrubs
Hang colored or white lights around trees or shrubs to add some glamor and sparkle, or place white, red, green, or blue accent lights under bushes. Solar-powered lanterns, hung from tree branches, add traditional charm. You could also trim outdoor trees with plastic ornaments or those designed for outdoor use, or tie red bows around tree trunks and box-shaped bushes to simulate giant presents.

Decorating the Fence and Patio
Evergreen garland, made from something like cedar or cypress, draped over patio doors and fence or deck posts is attractive and simple. You can also outline the perimeter of your fence or patio with decorative markers such as candy canes, snowflakes, or stars.

Decorating Outdoor Structures
One of the most beautiful holiday decorating ideas, and one that makes great use of elements like pergolas or arbors, is to wrap their poles and beams with twinkling lights. Hang glittery snowflake ornaments from the beams of a pergola or the railings of a gazebo. Place a wreath or stockings over an outdoor fireplace for a little taste of indoor warmth outside.

Use empty garden containers or fountains for displaying poinsettias, pinecones, or evergreen boughs. Or, fill empty planters with stacks of “presents”: wrap plastic containers of varying sizes (put a few rocks in first for weight) with foil-type gift wrap, stack them together and tie it all up with a wide ribbon.

These are just a few backyard decorating tips to get you started; there are endless ways to deck your backyard for the holidays and make it a beautiful area for entertaining even during the chilly holiday season.
