Decorating a backyard is an expression of creativity. While the front of a yard is the face of the house, primed to be respectful and attractive, the backyard is the soul of a house, where its owner is free to customize their yard as freely as they desire. A backyard can be colorful and vibrant, or elegant and poised. The only people with access to your backyard are the people you trust enough to let inside your home. To that end, why shouldn’t your backyard be a reflection of your personality? Here are three backyard decorations to suit a variety of tastes in decor:
Yard lights serve a function as well as a fashion, and can make any backyard shine– literally! Yard lights come in many different shapes and colors and can be positioned in the ground to form any number of designs. At the bottom of a yard light is a stake, like something you might drive into the ground to anchor a tent. At its top, of course, is the light. For those seeking a more reserved touch, natural-looking white light can serve as a beautiful and elegant display at nighttime, and the beautiful black body encasing pretty glass can serve to add a sense of dignity to any lawn. Yard lights can come in any color, however, and those who desire more flair can add lights of any color and in any combination.
Garden gnomes and other such statue-esque figurines are a popular choice for filling up the empty space in a backyard. With enough creative thought exercised upon a lawn, your backyard can be the sight of any Biblical scene or a reenactment of your favorite show. You can position your backyard figures to tell a story, and you can use those same figures to continue an epic backyard saga only you know the full story behind. It’s definitely a conversation-starter!
Baby Jesus can be the centerpiece of a life-sized nativity set, Santa can be at the helm of his bold-red sleigh, snowflakes as large as small children can rain down from the pillars of your deck, Rudolph can stand guard at the door, ever ready to guide visitors back to the entrance of a house during a late-evening Christmas party. The Easter bunny can lie at the center of a treasure hunt featuring dozens of carefully-hidden eggs. A bed of pumpkins can form a design, and have a design upon themselves, to boot! Holiday cheer is championed by all sorts of props, which serve to celebrate scenes from history or to celebrate a holiday icon. The sky’s the limit when it comes to holiday festivity decorations, from Santa flying in his red sleigh, or great, glimmering snowflake-lights suspended from your windows and deck.
