Winter Wonderland Backyard Paradise
As the weather cools down for winter, we are jumping headfirst into backyard winter wonderland projects. Winter usually means family-time spent around the fire roasting marshmallows, decorating gingerbread houses, and snuggling up with your favorite blanket. Luckily for us, a mild local winter means we can also continue to spend time outside. Here are tips to create a magical backyard paradise with these family-friendly ideas.
- Fire pit. This is the perfect outdoor winter activity. Invite friends over to sip hot chocolate and catch up on conversation around a cozy fire. Kick back, recline, and let loose as laughter and dialogue naturally build. Complete the comfortable setting with soft blankets and music. Follow directions to build one here, or purchase one here.
- Artificial turf. The perfect year-round outdoor surface. EasyTurf artificial grass looks great year-round and won’t become matted down and ruined from weather. Anytime you spend time outside, your friends, family, and neighbors will continued to be impressed by the green, lush look of your backyard.
- Install lights. Lighting is crucial to setting a Winter Wonderland vibe. Christmas lights and edison outdoor lights are both the perfect addition to any backyard. Warm, soft lighting will calm your mood and create a comfortable outdoor space that you and your family will want to relax in towards the end of a long day.
- Decorations. Getting into the holiday spirit is a huge part of creating a backyard winter wonderland. Decorating with wreaths, holiday poinsettias, and leaf garlands are a fun extension of fun holiday spirit.
