The Dominant Colors of Christmas

The dominant colors of Christmas are green, red, gold, silver, and white. There are meanings behind these colors.

  • Green is said to represent nature and hope. When the land is covered with the whiteness of snow, green represents life, a new beginning, and hope.
  • Red, on the other hand, symbolizes the blood Jesus shed for all mankind, so it speaks of love and warmth.
  • Gold speaks of wealth and of good health.
  • Silver not only signifies wealth like gold does, but it also represents clarity, perseverance, and brightness.
  • White represents cleanliness as well as purity.

Remember these colors when decorating your home for the holiday season. You will be using the traditional colors of Christmas, yes, but it is in the way you use them that will make your home Christmas decorations unique.

Glam Up Your Deck

When decorating your home, do not forget your deck. It is, after all, one of the parts of your home that people will first see, so you need to give it that holiday spirit as well. Of course, before you decorate it, you need to give it a good washing. You can scrub it clean or use a power washer to wash away the dirt and grime. You can rent a power washer if you do not have one. Find out more about power washer rentals online or visit your local hardware and see if they offer tool rental services.

Once your deck is clean, you can now give it that holiday cheer. Hang a wicker basket on the walls as well as the front door, but instead of using the usual Christmas decors, use red, yellow, and white flowers instead. Their green leaves will complete the whole Christmas look. You can use fake flowers if you want, since fresh flowers can be pretty expensive.

Do not forget to wrap the deck railing with the same decorations, too, for a continuation of the Christmas theme. It is also a great idea to put out Christmas lanterns decorated with the Christmas colors on the deck.

Glam up Your Mailbox

You should also decorate your mailbox with a topper made up juniper, moss, as well as fir for the greens and rosemary, lavender, and pansies for the other Christmas colors. Add some gold and silver Christmas balls to complete the look, and tie a red and gold ribbon around the mailbox. A decorated mailbox is a great way to greet people a Merry Christmas.

Glam Up the Interior of Your Home

Instead of using the usual Christmas ornaments for your home, why not hang pictures of your family instead. You can paste them on shimmery colorful cards, thread Christmas ribbons on top of the card, and hang them on your Christmas tree. You can also add some small handicrafts and artworks that your children made for the holiday season.

Fall Outdoor Decoration Theme Ideas

Fall Outdoor Decoration Theme Ideas

With the arrival of autumn’s cooling winds, landscapes explode into glorious hues of gold, crimson and tangerine. In recent years, decorating for the fall season has become just as popular as decking the halls for Christmastime. By adding focal points of autumnal scenery, your home will emanate a warming welcome to your guests throughout the duration of the season.

Make the most of the front entry to your home. Select an adornment for the door, such as a bunch of dried Indian corn tied together with raffia or a seasonal colored ribbon. A festive fall wreath studded with pinecones, silk leaves and blooms in autumnal hues provides another option for highlighting your front door. If there are steps that lead the way to your door, arrange potted mums or pumpkins along the sides of each step. Homes whose front entryway is framed by a porch railing have the perfect venue for exhibiting a row of pumpkins. Flank each end of the railing with cornstalks. A seated scarecrow on a porch chair makes a heartwarming and whimsical sentry. For an additional decorative touch that can be swapped out with each season, consider erecting a garden flag post, perhaps curbside at the mailbox, to display a flag of autumn graphics.

Be sure to decorate the patio or deck for backyard barbecues and cocktail entertaining around the fire pit. Home and garden centers are treasure troves for your patio decorating needs. Outdoor furniture cushions, toss pillows and table umbrellas are now marked down for clearance. Select seating cushions and pillows for the chairs and benches in colors or patterns that showcase the fall palette, which includes orange, yellow, red, maroon, purple and earth tones. Matching table umbrellas will extend the look upwards. Terra cotta pots brimming with pinecones create simple, inexpensive and low maintenance centerpieces for the tables. Baskets or wooden bowls filled with apples provide edible seasonal decorations during entertaining.

Arrange clusters of potted plants in the corners of conversational areas and around the borders of the patio or deck. Boldly colored mums, purple asters and Montauk daisies are popular seasonal choices. Fountain grasses that are now sprouting forth their purple plumes add height and dimension to the arrangement; ornamental cabbage and kale provide texture. Pumpkins, which are now available in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors that include the trendy white hue, can also be grouped with the plants. A decorative iron rack will ensure that extra firewood stands ready for feeding the fire pit. When the daytime barbecue extends into a chilly evening of conversation around the fire, keep a few throw blankets in solid fall colors on hand to offer guests. For added evening ambience, drape strings of miniature orange lights around the perimeter of the patio.

Your local home and garden center and craft superstore offer all of the inspiration that you need to embrace the season by setting the mood to celebrate autumn, from its first welcomed appearance in September all the way through the Thanksgiving holiday in November.
