As you’re decorating your home for the holidays, don’t forget to adorn your deck with the spirit of the season!
During the frigid months, many homeowners avoid using their outdoor living space. Thankfully, the holidays provide the perfect opportunity to breathe life back into our outdoor living spaces. After all, your snow-covered deck presents the ideal setting for a winter wonderland.
Deck-orate Now to Enjoy Kansas City Outdoor Wintertime Magic!
Homeowners from Blue Springs to Overland Park will have a ball spreading holiday cheer when they use the following ideas to transform their deck into a North Pole staycation destination!
Make the Frost on Your Deck Glitter with Outdoor Lighting
Stringing lights all around your Kansas City deck is the best way to give it a holiday glow. There’s a wide variety of outdoor lighting to choose from, so have fun hanging traditional white lights or go bold with colorful bulbs. Twinkling lights will add sparkling beauty to your winter wonderland, but if you want your deck to have a tranquil holiday spirit, decorate with hanging icicle lights.
Pro Tip: Illuminating your deck by installing outdoor lighting is a perfect addition to make your outdoor living space safer at night.
Traditional Holiday Décor is Perfect for a Winter Wonderland
Kansas City outdoor living spaces look spectacular with classic decorations that inspire happy memories of visiting grandma’s house for the holidays. You can even place a Christmas tree on your deck!
Hanging a wreath on your backdoor and garland along your deck railing will do wonders to capture the essence of the season. Using live pine branches are an extra special touch. Not only do they smell amazing, but they hold up well in any type of weather.
If you have a pergola, drape garland around the top edge, so it hangs naturally. Adding soft white lights and red bows to the garland will give it holiday spirit. As a final romantic touch, hang mistletoe from the center of the pergola. When your special someone is near, lovingly pull them under the mistletoe to take the chill out of the air!
Bring Life to Your Deck!
Decorate your outdoor living space with evergreens as they symbolize eternal life and represent nature’s promise that spring will return. Flank your doors and staircases with evergreens to honor the season and remind yourself that you’ll soon be enjoying warmer weather on your deck.
Adorn the evergreens with lights and sparkly holiday decorations. Just be sure the trees aren’t placed where they become a tripping hazard.
Bring Life to Your Deck!
After a long day of holiday shopping, chill out by sinking into a few festive pillows. They’ll make the cozy seating on your deck look grand enough to tempt jolly ol’ Saint Nick to take a break and kick his feet up!
The Perfect Winter Pairing: Fire and Ice
A fire pit is the ideal center piece for your Kansas City outdoor winter wonderland!
After the kids have had fun roasting marshmallows and are now sleeping soundly in bed with visions of sugar plums dancing in their head, it’s time for you to settle down and enjoy a romantic holiday evening in front of the fire surrounded by a flurry of snow.
Chase Away the Chill with Mugs of Liquid Love
Including a hot beverage station on your deck will complete your Kansas City outdoor winter wonderland!
Fresh coffee, hot chocolate, tea, spiced cider, and hot toddies will keep your family and friends warm, and let them know how happy you are that they’re there for the holidays without you uttering a word.
Transforming Your Deck into a Winter Wonderland is the Best Way to Celebrate the Holidays and Ring in the New Year!
When homeowners throughout the Greater Kansas City area turn their deck into a wintry retreat, they’ll enjoy the holiday season to its fullest and create lasting memories with their loved ones. No matter how you choose to decorate your outdoor living space, the results will be magical because you used heart and soul to create a winter wonderland that brings everyone together for the holidays.
However, it’s vitally important to keep your winter wonderland safe by sweeping the snow from the decking boards before it can accumulate. If this necessary maintenance is neglected, your Kansas City outdoor living space will become dangerously slick! If you have a covered deck, be sure to take care of the steps leading up to it.
We at All Weather Decks wish you and your loved ones a joyous and safe holiday season filled with love, laughter, and warm memories, and may the new year bless your family with health, wealth, and unlimited happiness.
