It’s time to deck the halls as the festive season approaches. Your choice of decorations is the finishing touch that makes Christmas absolutely perfect. Why not add outdoor Christmas decorations to your garden to create a cheerful and festive ambiance during the holiday season?
This time of year offers plenty of opportunity to have some fun with your outdoor space by introducing Christmas garden decorations that add colour and texture to welcome family and friends. We’ve put together some festive decorating ideas to bring the magic of Christmas to your home.
A warm welcome
As the temperature drops and daylight gets shorter as we approach the big day, your guests may feel less inclined to go outside. Keeping the family warm as you use your garden for Christmas will be as much of a priority as providing a plentiful dinner or telling a cracker joke.
Relax with a crackling fire on a cold winter evening and create a vibrant space for entertaining with our range of fire pits and fireplaces.
Our Hoole Penzance Square Steel Fire Pit is the ideal for keeping friends and family warm when gathered outdoors. Our Ember Chiminea is the perfect addition to create a cosy ambience on the patio.. As the sun goes down, there's nothing better than to relax and unwind watching the flames flickering.
If you want to dine al-fresco and cook for your guests outside, a Christmas Day or New Year's Eve barbecue will make for a unique dining experience. The Kamado Ceramic Grill Barbecue will add the wow factor to a festive meal, whilst our Tabletop BBQ is ideal for those with small spaces but still want to cook a Christmas feast.
Styling your garden furniture
Create a winter wonderland by styling your garden furniture to see in the New Year with our Christmas decor ideas. A Yuletide table is a great opportunity to create a wonderful display for your guests and inject a festive atmosphere to proceedings. Our Richmond 4 Seater Garden Furniture Set With Cushions will create a cosy outdoor living room for socialising over a mulled wine.
Our Lyndhurst Rocking Chair offers complete relaxation after a long day of festivities. Decorate Scandi style with neutral, natural shades and materials to perfect the look. Use red, green and white to give your garden a cosy and homely look and create a perfect space for holiday festivities.
Create a centrepiece and holiday decorations for your festive table by embracing nature and using what you can find in your own garden. Holly leaves, pine cones or other festive foliage such as ivy, fir or eucalyptus can be used to create a natural garland that will run the full length of your table.
Light it up
We love the idea of hanging baubles, fairy lights and lanterns from the trees above when entertaining friends. Solar lights such as the Solar Edison Lights look spectacular when strung on different garden structures and features like pergolas, arches, obelisks, trees, even around your shed roof. The varying heights will create interest, depth and a starry look, transforming your garden into the perfect festive scene.
Traditional style fairy lights like our 300 Warm White Solar String Lights are perfect for adding the twinkle to bushes, trees, containers, hanging baskets or even along pathways and steps. You can also add a magical festive glow with our Hurricane lanterns on a patio, creating an enchanting sight for your guests.
Making a door wreath for your front door is so easy, and is such a lovely tradition. Creating a Christmas wreath with evergreen plants and a festive feel to your table with seasonal branches like spruce, pine and eucalyptus, pine cones, berries and dried fruit.
Simple foliage additions can elevate the seasonal feeling of your garden. Potted trees will enlighten your garden with spirit and make a statement as a doorstep or patio planter in pairs. Decorate as you would to create a magical focal point and evoke the wonderful scent that is synonymous with this time of year.
Most of us think that colourful outdoor planters are only possible in spring and summer, however you can still decorate your garden with impressive winter container displays. Plants such as conifers, evergreen trees and shrubs such as magnolia, eucalyptus, boxwood, holly and ivy with pyracantha berries and bright stems offering a pop of colour.
