Decorate Your Backyard Naturally for the Holidays

-Contributed to the December 2012 edition of Camelot’s House and Home News by Nina del Valle of Superior Designs, a full-service interior design firm.

Bring cheer naturally to your backyard this season! Celebrate the holidays by welcoming nature into your backyard using earthy elements spiced up with color for your decorations.

Natural elements

As the backdrop of your decorations, use wreaths and garlands made of natural greens. This could be a combination of boxwood, pine, and juniper leaves interwoven with fruits, dried herbs, and pine cones. They can be used by themselves for a total natural look or combined with other holiday decor.

Do not forget to key in on the beauty of seasonal flowers. Create the image of nature’s winter color by using creams and whites as a timeless look. Combine them with natural greenery, red berries, and gold accents for an elegant approach. Use everyone’s favorite poinsettias in groupings on a patio or furniture area. Gardenias, paperwhites, and jasmine are also popular choices. All white or all red groupings make for more of a visual impact.

Enjoy seasonal elements


Showcase your backyard

Be sure to address key areas in your backyard to showcase your holiday decorating. For example, a wall fountain looks great surrounded by candles or with a wreath hanging from it. Hang clear twinkle lights vertically from a patio cover, wall, or fence. Your guests will love it! Use red accents interspersed throughout the furniture setting, such as a quilted red pillow, a plaid throw, an iron lantern, or maybe a Christmas area rug that says welcome. Be sure to use only hints of red so as not to disrupt the peaceful, natural vibe. As a center piece on your table use a cedar tray with a holiday scented candle in the center surrounded with cinnamon sticks, evergreen sprigs, nuts, pine cones, and red berries.

Merry Christmas!
