As we begin to prepare our indoor kitchens and dining areas for holiday entertaining, remember it is our outdoors that guests notice first!
Having the forethought to greet our guests upon the approach of our homes, begin the warm welcoming of them as much as the approaching holiday season.
What a beautiful time of the year to tend to and tidy up our landscapes in preparations of ol’ man winter.
Have you scheduled your leaf and garden clean up?
Add outdoor lighting by means of path lights along the walkway to your front door or just your front door (once you’ve painted it a new color!), up-light the structure of beautiful large trees or even smaller specimens (remember the beauty of them even without leaf!), or wall-wash a gorgeous stone wall on your property or on your home.
LED Landscape Lighting adds beautiful interest, ambiance and task lighting for your outdoor environments.
Trusting an artistic eye for this attention will bring magic to your property and life to your night!
Predicting the weather has become increasingly difficult for even those seasoned forecasters we’d like to rely on… so preparing an outdoor space for guest overflow is a really good idea.
The weather just might be perfect to step outdoors for a bit.
Have your candles secured and lit, outdoor lights on a dimmer to maintain ambiance of your evening and set up a string of Edison lights for simple overhead lighting.
Do you have an outdoor fireplace or firepit? Very nice firepits are easily found locally or by mail order.
Do ensure you have the wood for the evening’s fire and an outdoor refreshment stand for those who love the ‘burrrr’ and prefer it outside.
Such a wonderful time of year to love the change of seasons all over again!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
