16 Fabulous Christmas Outdoor Decorations


The Christmas countdown has begun and the big day will be here before you know it. There is always so much to do, including decorating. We’ll be celebrating in our first Christmas in our new home, which is exciting. Of course, it just seems like I found a place for everything and now need to dig out my Christmas decorations. Let’s hope I remember where I put everything! Regardless of how busy this time of year is, decorating the house and our Christmas tree is one of my favorite family traditions.

Every year I like to give a new ornament to Lauren and Taylor to hang on our tree. Typically the ornament either symbolizes a special moment from the past year or is from a place we visited. When the girls leave home, the ornaments will go with them and help decorate their future Christmas tree. Every ornament speaks to a moment in their life, and I love knowing some day they will recall those special stories with their children. This is one of our favorite decorating traditions.

    Shannon, these 16 decors are great! It feels like I need to decor mine with 8, 11, 13, and 16. 20 days left before Christmas!

      They are gorgeous. If you goole Chrimsy Trees by Teresa Sapey, you can find out where to buy one, although I'm not sure if they are available in the States.

    I love reindeer in the yard. Ours were destroyed a few years back after being buried in the snow until February, so I am on the lookout for the right replacements.

      Those are gorgeous too, Kim. Snow is something that I don't have to worry about here. :)

    I love the oversized Christmas ornaments hanging from the trees on the front lawn. Such a cute and creative touch.

      Those are definitely showstoppers too. And really easy to do yourself.
