Setting up the best Christmas lawn decorations doesn’t have to be both hard and expensive. It’s all about being creative and practical at the same time. Don’t mind if your neighbors’ lawn decorations are all flashy and extravagant. Keep in mind that it’s not a contest – it’s all about being unique in your own decorations and most importantly, creating a fun-filled Christmas atmosphere.
Shop early and beat Christmas traffic. This way you don’t have to spend too much money on décor during the ridiculous increase of prices around the holidays. You can also try looking for items in thrift stores, consignment stores, garage sales or online as they usually offer great bargains. Christmas décor is only used once a year, so used items should still be pretty much in good condition.
Shopping early for décor will also provide you with time to plan ahead for your Christmas lawn decorations.
Go for something unique
While everyone on the block may go for extravagant displays complete with candy-colored blinking lights, you can try your hand with simple yet expensive-looking decorations. Think outside the box and figure out a way that your lawn decorations will stand out from the rest. For example, instead of having a colorful display, you can use white Christmas lights and focus on an exclusive color scheme for your display. It’s simple yet sophisticated.
Involve the whole family
Setting up your lawn for Christmas decorations doesn’t have to be a solo job. In fact, you can make it into a fun family activity. Gather your family from the planning stage up to the actual execution and talk about ideas and suggestions. Whatever you come up with is both personal and unique, which is what exactly any home Christmas decoration should be.
Planning and shopping for your Christmas lawn display should be fairly easy, but setting it up on your lawn may be a handful. It doesn’t have to be a solo act – the key is to delegate the work. Assign work to each member of the family and pick a day when all of you are free to set up on the lawn. You can even ask the little kids for help with things such as passing out snacks and making sure that the decorations are hung perfectly. By making this a fun family activity, your decorations will mean more to you as a family, and that’s all that matters.
