Most of us try to impress the neighbors every year around Christmas time. Our outdoor Christmas decor displays get more and more outrageous each and every year. However, sometimes it’s not about who is spending the most money.
As we all know, money can’t buy taste. This goes for Christmas decorations, too. Just because you spend thousands of dollars on decorations does not mean that they are either meaningful or beautiful. Just think about the modest holiday decorations of your youth. Most of them were not extravagant, but they were very memorable.
If you want memorable holiday decor, you must first decide what kind of decor you would like. Do you want a modern style or something old fashioned. Are you looking for a religious display or something that will entertain the kids? Once you have decided this, you can begin to look for the right display for you.
One option with an old fashioned style display is to create your own. You could spend valuable quality time with your children creating a nice Christmas yard decoration for this year.
If you are not the crafty type, you may wish to purchase your own decorations. Outdoor Christmas decor comes in all shapes and sizes. You can choose to simply decorate your home with lights or you can get a large blow up decoration in a shape that all the neighborhood kids will recognize.
No matter what you choose, the decorations should reflect what’s in your heart. It should be memorable to those who see it and make your family happy every time you pull up in the driveway.
