Christmas cheer doesn’t need to be limited to the inside of your house. With the right preparation, your patio can be the perfect place to host whatever you want. It’s time to start decorating your outdoor patio space for entertaining this Christmas and we’ve got some great tips to show you how.
Those unused plant pots and outdoor containers you have stored in the back of the shed are a great place to start. Fill them with small evergreens that invoke Christmas memories of yesterday and add some tree ornaments. You could even make some coloured sand in glass jars to compliment the space.
Next, why not introduce some poinsettias to your outdoor living space. These vibrant red Christmas plants are sure to put your family and guests in the Christmas spirit.
Almost any decoration you can use inside will work outside. Place a few Christmas candles on your table, add some ornamental candy canes with the cutlery and maybe a reef or two where appropriate as well.
Of course, the decorating isn’t complete until you add the Christmas lights and they also happen to be a great way to brighten an outdoor area. Chances are, if you’re going to be entertaining outside at Christmas time, it’s going to be dark and the lights are a great way to warm up the ambiance. Choose a colour theme – red and green or blue and white are great choices at Christmas time. Don’t be shy, add lights around the patio, in the trees around the yard and on the house too.
Outdoor Christmas Tree
The Christmas tree is one of the most iconic symbols of Christmas there is. Why not take your Christmas tree outside on the patio. There’s no reason you can’t have a tree inside and one on the patio as well. In Australian at Christmas time it’s usually nice and hot, so it just makes sense to be outside enjoying the warm, fresh air.
Many of us are lucky enough to have patios that are ideal for sheltering a Christmas tree. If you don’t have one, you can always contact In Style Patios and Decks on 0436 007 776 and we can design and build one for you. We always have a great deal going too!
As you and your loved ones sit back and enjoy Christmas on the patio, don’t forget to break out the beers, BBQ and fresh prawns.
With the right preparation there’s no reason you can’t use your outdoor patio space for entertaining this Christmas season.
