Outdoor Festive Decorations
Images from Pinterest
One of my favourite things about Christmas, now and when I was a child, were all of the Christmas decorations and lights on our street and while driving around. Growing up, there was a house close to us that was known to us as the 'Christmas house' because every year it had SO many lights on it that it stood out so much and always made us smile going past it. We've never done anything that over the top but we always have lights outside and as children we put up our 'santa stop here' sign in the front garden.

Now things are a little different as my inspiration and wish list is coming from Pinterest and or Etsy so I don't want lots of lights but I do want fairy lights, wreaths and cute homemade decorations. There are so many gorgeous outdoor christmas decorations and christmas light inspiration photos on Pinterest that are just perfect - some of my favourites are above.

I love all of the ideas in the photos above, especially the gorgeous wreaths, we have one now from Matalan that lights up but next year I'd love a real one for the front door - they make me think of Victorian Christmases. I'm not a fan of tacky lights or decorations, some of my neighbours have inflatable decorations which I personally don't like but I do love more homemade, traditional indoor and outdoor decorations for the Christmas season...well I like fairy lights in the garden all year round! I think fairy lights look great around trees and scrubs which is something a lot of the homes around mine seem to be doing this year. Garden designers, Floral & Hardy, offer a range of garden design services to create your perfect garden including personalised garden plans so that when Christmas comes around you'll have a gorgeous garden and outdoor Christmas decorations will look amazing!

What do you think of the Christmas decoration ideas above? Do you have any outdoor Christmas decorations up? 


  1. I love Christmas Decorations, at home we usually have a wreath on the door. When I get my own house I definitely want simple lights outside just like the ice blue ones.

  2. If I lived in a house instead of a flat I would definitely go all out with christmas decorations. Love the look of the wreath x

  3. I live in an apartment, so I don't do outdoor festive decorations, but I love seeing other people's outdoor festive decorations, even the tacky ones! The most important part of festive decorations are definitely the fairy lights :) -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
