I have used traditional reds and greens in my outdoor decorating for many years. I just love the way that color combination works. Although I really haven’t done that much decorating inside or out this year, I did put a few things outside. I hope you enjoy your tour of my outdoor decorations.
Front door wreath. This is just an old wreath I’ve had for many years that I dressed up with some red balls and a big red bow.
I used a simple lighted garland and tied a bow on my bench. If you’d like to see the story of this bench re-do and burlap pillow, you can read about that here.
(Excuse the extension cords….I didn’t realize they showed in this pic!)
Wall planter filled with pieces of greenery and large Christmas ornaments I started buying a couple of years ago. It really looks pretty spotlighted at night.
And finally my garden gate. This cone shaped planter I picked up on our recent road trip (read about that here). We stopped on Saturday morning at a yard sale and I got it for $5.00!
I will have to replace the red picks next year-- they are looking kinda sad. I got them at Kirkland’s a couple of years ago on a trip to Biloxi. I just stuck them in the planter….doesn’t get any easier than that!
And that’s it for my outside decorations. Check back later this week when I’ll be taking you on a tour of the inside of my home. Can’t wait to show you the gorgeous tray on my dining room table!
