Holiday "Deck"orating Tips
This may not be the season to search for custom deck builders in NJ, but this is definitely the season to be festive! Decks are wonderful, public additions to our home that neighbors and passersby can view as they can the rest our of home’s exterior, yet at the same time something about them is very intimate. From the deck we can gather to share special moments with our families. During the holidays in particular, a deck is a place where we can gather with friends and family and drink eggnog, sing carols and watch children build snowmen. Decks are also a way to show not just friends and family, but neighbors and passersby too our holiday spirit. Unlike the decoration we adorn the inside of our houses with, all can see the decorations we have on the outside. Decks in particular are a wonderful way to show our holiday sense of style, uniqueness and pride in our homes. To make your deck stand out, here are some tips for proudly decorating them this holiday season:
Wreaths: While this may seem like a cliché, wreaths can demonstrate a homeowner’s individual sense of style. A wreath can be made of almost any material from artificial flowers, to ornaments, to pine cones to paper mache, etc. Hang little ones all over your deck or find an extra-large one to display front and center.
·Decorative Plants: Try adorning your deck with artificial plants such as poinsettias. They can withstand cold winter nights unlike most natural flowers and you can even place them in decorative flower pots creating a welcoming floral arrangement.
·Christmas Garland: Wrap these around pillars, posts and handrails of your deck. They can be wrapped with lights or festive white and red bows.
·A Christmas tree for your deck: When you go shopping for a tree for the inside of your home, consider buying one to place on your deck as well. Simply secure the tree to the deck, cover it with lights and spray the branches with canned snow.
·Animate your deck: Try placing three dimensional, Christmas themed characters on your deck. Here you can be particularly creative in that you can include modern Christmas characters as well as classic ones like Frosty and Old Saint Nick himself.
