Outdoor Garden Christmas Decorating – Part 1 πŸ¦ŒπŸŽ„ | How's It Growing?

Hello! Today I’m out in the front garden and getting Merry! This is a multi-part video because I am but one small person, and there are only so many hours in the day where family time, working, eating and sleeping (you’ll notice sleeping is dead last, ZZZzzz) are beneficial and necessary.

I really hope you enjoy this video. I had a ton of fun. Some of the tips I have found to be incredible time savers, so I hope you’ll benefit from them too. I’ve linked in a couple of products I used in my Amazon Garden Shop:

If I don’t provide a link, it means it’s no longer available, or I don’t remember where I purchased. I reuse many items year after year.

Lowe’s Reindeer:

Balsam Hill Lamp Post Garland – I also use 2 lit wreaths in this collection on the front of the porch railing and spindles (more on that in Part 2 video)

Note: The porch garland is unfortunately discontinued. πŸ™ It was from Grandin Road and called “Pre-Lit Woodland Christmas Garland” I bought it about 3-4 years ago.

Gardener’s Supply Copper LED used for boxwood lights:

The Snowman and his red drippy burlap hat are no longer available (wonder why! ha!)

All of the lights plug in, all of the lights are on WEMO timers.

I hope to see you in Part 2 – Stick around, the winner of the amazingly beautiful Gardener’s Supply terrarium will be popping up soon! Thank you for being with me in my garden today!

    Looks great! Do you have a vision of what you want it to look like or just work until you’re satisfied? My neighbors house behind me looks a lot like yours, it sits in a patch of woods and when it snows it looks like a Currier and Ives painting. Wish they had some of your decorating savy. Thanks for sharing and can’t wait for part 2.

    I am so impressed. You didn’t have any trouble getting that garland even. You did all the decorating yourself. . . Your Frosty looks like he should be in Arizona, with me.

    So pretty, love the deers. πŸ€—

    Laura, You are such a DYNOMO, a true one woman show! I love & appreciate your tips and talents. I had a meanie neighbor, next door also. Maybe every street has one. Everyone on the st. just ignored her, but our neighbor on the Left was like family. The youngest daughter was our very much cherished baby sitter, from age 13. My 4 children, now in their 40’s, still visit her. Just accept ol’e grumpy, as a lesson in kindness, for your childen. They will learn and remember, mine did. I’m loving those reindeer!πŸŽ…πŸ€Ά

    Do you have mesh screens outside your window or have you taken them down to put the wreaths up?

    How lovely is your Christmas home decor. Truly, it should be feature in a Pottery Barn Layout. You neighbors should bring you gifts just because your home is beautiful. I enjoyed watching you decorate and thanks for the tips.
