Avoid a dull white Christmas when decorating your Florida home for Christmas. Instead, think of nature as a theme. Repurpose old decorations and use re-purposed materials. You can even decorate using lights to give your home a festive feel. You may also want to decorate palm trees and tall palms.
Using nature as a theme
It’s a great way to decorate your home with nature and create a festive mood. You can buy decorations made from natural elements like pinecones or dried plant materials, or you can create your own. You can also use simple plants like camellias, which will provide color from fall to spring.
You can also incorporate elements from your garden into your holiday decorations to make nature a theme. Master gardener Connie Wilson of Collier County, Florida, suggests using plants in your garden in your holiday decorations. She says, “It will make holidays much more festive.”
Using old decorations
It doesn’t take much to decorate a Florida home for the holidays. A few tips will help you “Southern-ize” your home’s decor. You can start by looking outside the box and incorporating plants from your own garden into your holiday decorations. To complete the look, add some traditional holiday decorations.
One way to decorate for the holidays is to use family heirlooms. A mahogany buffet, for example, would be a great place to host a Christmas brunch. It also fits well into a niche. You can also use mod white lamps to give traditional furniture a modern update.
Another way to use old decorations is to incorporate them in the dining room. To draw attention to the light fixture, place a few wreaths on the tabletop. A festive touch can be added by using Southern classics such as pinecones or crocosmia pods for your centerpiece. To add subtle glamour to your Christmas tablescape, you can use other decorative items such as dried shelf mushrooms.
Millions of Americans love the tradition of using lights to decorate their homes for Christmas in Florida. However, the lights and other holiday decorations can add to your monthly utility bill. You can cut your energy consumption by using energy efficient lights. These may be more expensive upfront, but you’ll save money throughout the season.
Blue and white lights can be combined with blue and green globe ornaments to create a coastal Christmas. These lights burn cool and pose no fire hazard. You can also use LED lights with unique colors that are more energy-efficient. Don’t forget a traditional tree-topper star to complete the look. For an extra holiday glow, you can add a palm tree skirt to give it a tropical twist.
The Christmas holiday is all about light displays. If you don’t have a tree to decorate, you can decorate your entire home with holiday lights. Make sure the color scheme and style of your lights match the rest of your home. You don’t need to hang holiday lights on every surface. They can be hung on pillars, hedges and trees.
Florida residents can decorate their homes with festive decorations during the holiday season. Florida’s climate means palm trees are plentiful and can be decorated with festive lights. You can also dress up tall palm trees by making ornaments out of their leaves. Since winter temperatures in Florida are usually near 75 degrees, frost is unlikely to form on your windows, but you can fake it with baby powder or water.
You can also add holiday decorations and candles to your home. Decorating your home for Christmas is a fun way to spread holiday cheer. Your front door can be decorated to make it festive. A small tree can be placed in front of your door to add a festive touch. You can then add lights, ornaments and wreaths.
