Vacation Season Shining within the Backyard

First time Christmas decorator? No worries! With a bit of help from The Home Depot, Stacie Abdallah from Stacies spaceswas able to bring a little holiday flair to her garden and her arbor in the open air for the first time. Check out her blog below for some great DIY tips and tricks!

Can I tell you a little secret? Never have I ever decorated outside for Christmas! I know … that sounds crazy, doesn’t it? I love decorating the inside of our home for the holidays, but I’ve never tried to do it outside. When The home depot invited me to take part in the Holiday Style Challenge, I was both nervous and excited! It was time to get out of my comfort zone (in the truest sense of the word) and make an effort to light up nature! Got the theme of seasonal shine and tried my best to light up our greenhouse and garden area for the holidays!

Decorating the gazebo

When we built this garden and arbor earlier this year, I didn’t consider all of the ways to decorate it. I just thought my garden needed an entrance! Now I know this entrance is perfect for this one 5ft pre-lit artificial Christmas trees . I put one on each side and then brought them in Mr. Bear to accompany them. My kids loved this bear from the moment I pulled it out of the box and assembled it. I mean, the bear even got hugs from them! Needless to say, this bear made a good impression and seems quite at home in its place at the gazebo. We added this too large, pre-lit wreath and bow and last but not least!

Light up the greenhouse

My greenhouse is probably my most valuable garden possession. She even has a name, Josephine. We recently added a porch to her, which made it even easier to decorate her for Christmas! We lined up Lightbulb lights around their roof line and hung a simple battery-operated, pre-lit wreath at the door. I placed those too stacked gift box set At the door. Josephine looked super cute! Then we decided to up the ante a bit by creating a DIY sign for “faux” tent letters.

The process for creating these letters was pretty simple and straightforward. This type of sign can be used for a wide variety of events and celebrations. Continue reading this guide The Home Depot website to see how i did it!

This may have been my first time decorating outside, specifically the garden / greenhouse area, but it certainly won’t be the last! That was so much fun and the kids love to see the room lit up at night! We were able to find everything we needed for this project The home depot that made it super comfortable. The Home Depot was literally a one stop shop for everything we needed, and I’m so grateful for the app, the home shipping and in-store pickup options! I already have ideas for the next vacation!
