Welcome to Blogmas Day 3! Today I thought would be a good day to talk about and show you guys my outdoor decorations. I’m nowhere near done with my decorating in the house, but I always put up my outdoor lights the day after Thanksgiving. There are quite a few so it can be time consuming, but it’s so worth it when it’s done. So let’s get into it.
The first thing that goes up are the lights on the house, that takes the most time but it ends up looking amazing and I don’t use the LED lights. I use the clear incandescent lights, C9’s, I think they’re much prettier and a lot brighter.
Next we have the lights I use to line the steps going up to the front door. I can’t remember where either are from but they’ve lasted for quite a while.
The ones I use on the front of the steps are little trees, there are five in the string and they blink when they’re on but it’s not obnoxious blinking.
The others are penguins and those line the back of the steps. There are four in a string, which doesn’t seem like a lot but it works out.
I have a couple of big light up decorations and they are both from Costco. One I’ve had forever and the other is only a couple years old but these things will last forever if you let them.
The only unfortunate thing about Frosty is he lost an eye this year, I literally have no idea where it went. But I can replace it and the rest of him works.
I love this tree, it’s almost 5 feet tall and it kind of reminds me of a tree from The Grinch. The only downside is it’s caked in glitter that comes off if you so much as stand near it. But it is quite pretty and adds a lot to the overall look.
Moving on, we have one of my favorite features and that’s my front door.
The front door is something I only started putting lights around a few years ago and it’s made such a difference. It’s so much more warm and inviting now.
The second to last thing is a couple of things, window lights. There are a few more than this, but last night when I was taking pictures it was pouring rain and I didn’t get all of the pictures I wanted. So after I go out later and take the rest I’ll insert them so it’s complete. (Update, last two pictures have been added).
And lastly, I have a star. This is at the peak of my garage roof and it really ties everything together.
That about wraps it up for this post. Have you guys done your outdoor decorating yet? If so, which decoration is your favorite?
Until next time, have fun decorating and don’t fall off any ladders :).
