Holiday Style on the Deck

12.03.2015

Visions of Christmas added to the deck have been dancing around in my head since this is the first Christmas after the makeover. Did I come up with a plan for making the deck festive?  Not really. So what to do? Well, you just shop the house, buy a small live tree, put it all together on a cloudy and fairly cold afternoon and start shooting pictures.


 I did this weeks ago before all the leaves were gone.
 I grabbed pillows I already had plus grabbed the two new plaid ones I bought at the At Home store back in October. They were so cute in plaid trimmed with fur that they just had to come home with me. Then I brought out the birch logs and container from the great room, filled my enamelware pail with pine cones that I keep stored, and watched hubby's eyes get big when I grabbed his fur throw. The tobacco basket was hung several weeks ago in place of the shutters that broke and I quickly attached a wreath to it.
 I hope you enjoy a little Christmas on the deck.





























Sadly it doesn't look like this anymore.

It looks like this. The cushions have been stored away and the furniture frames are covered in an ugly brown tarp. I will be looking forward to spring and bringing some life back out there.

Much more Christmas to come and today is the last day for the Christmas Ideas Tour that started on Monday. You can find all the links in this post.

Have a super day!

  4. I'm feeling the warmth on that chilly deck! If only it could stay like that, sigh. Mine looks exactly like yours -- the last photo, that is, lol!

  5. It looked so nice decorated for Christmas. I was hoping because you live in Ga, that you would be able to use your deck through the winter.

  7. It's simply decorated but feels warm and inviting. My favourite part - the little tree in the red pot with a single wrap of ribbon. Perfection!
    Yes, it's heavy rain and wind up here. Not looking too welcoming outside. But inside, I'm in my own Christmas wonderland.

  11. I love this idea. Ohio is typically very snowy for Christmas but some lights and winter touches would be nice to look at from my back french doors. Thanks for the inspiration.

  13. I love it with all the red and the plaid rug is perfect with it. Too bad you couldn't have left it that way longer. At least spring will be here before we know it...although much sooner for you that for us in NJ!

  14. Your deck looks so festive! Every time I see one of those old tobacco baskets I think of my grandfather who used to farm, buy, and sell tobacco back in his day. Sheila
