how to decor home for christmas in Florida

Avoid a dull white Christmas when decorating your Florida home for Christmas. Instead, think of nature as a theme. Repurpose old decorations and use re-purposed materials. To give your home a festive touch, you can decorate with lights. You might also consider decorating tall palms and palm trees.

Using nature as a theme

It’s a great way to decorate your home with nature and create a festive mood. You can either buy decorations made of natural elements such as pinecones, dried plant materials, or make your own. You can also use simple plants like camellias, which will provide color from fall to spring.

Another way to use nature as a theme is to incorporate elements from your garden into holiday decorations. Master gardener Connie Wilson of Collier County, Florida, suggests using plants in your garden in your holiday decorations. She says, “It will make holidays much more festive.”

Using old decorations

Decorating a Florida home for the holidays doesn’t have to be difficult. A few tips will help you “Southern-ize” your home’s decor. Start by thinking outside the box, and incorporating plants from your garden into your holiday decorations. To complete the look, add some traditional holiday decorations.

Family heirlooms are a great way to decorate for the holidays. A mahogany buffet, for example, would be a great place to host a Christmas brunch. It also fits well into a niche. Mod white lamps can also be used to modernize traditional furniture.

Another way to use old decorations is to incorporate them in the dining room. Place a wreath or two on the tabletop to draw attention to a light fixture. Using Southern classics like pinecones and crocosmia pods in your centerpiece will add a festive touch. Use other decorative items, such as dried shelf mushrooms, to add a touch of subtle glamour to your Christmas tablescape.

Using lights

Millions of Americans love the tradition of using lights to decorate their homes for Christmas in Florida. However, the lights and other holiday decorations can add to your monthly utility bill. To cut down on your costs, consider using energy efficient lights. These may be more expensive upfront, but you’ll save money throughout the season.

For a coastal Christmas, choose blue and white lights mixed with blue and white globe ornaments. These lights burn cool and pose no fire hazard. Alternatively, use new-style LED lights that are energy-efficient and have unique coloration. Don’t forget a traditional tree-topper star to complete the look. You can also add a palm tree skirt for an added touch of holiday twinkle and glow.

Light displays are the key to Christmas. If you don’t have a tree to decorate, you can decorate your entire home with holiday lights. Make sure the color scheme and style of your lights match the rest of your home. In addition, holiday lights don’t have to be strung on every surface; you can hang them on non-traditional places like pillars, hedges, and trees.

Decorating outside

Florida residents can decorate their homes with festive decorations during the holiday season. Palm trees are abundant in Florida, so they can be decorated with holiday lights. You can also make ornaments from the leaves of tall palm trees. Since winter temperatures in Florida are usually near 75 degrees, frost is unlikely to form on your windows, but you can fake it with baby powder or water.

You can also decorate your home with holiday decorations and candles. It’s a great way to spread holiday cheer by decorating your home for Christmas. You can even decorate your front door to look festive. A small tree placed in front of the door can be a festive accent. Then, you can add lights, ornaments, and wreaths.
