It’s full speed ahead with the Christmas decorating around here, thanks to the Home Depot Holiday Style Challenge. They assign each of the participating bloggers a specific area in their homes to decorate. I was given “outdoor” and originally thought the front door would be the place to start. But, I eventually decided our patio might be more fun to tackle. After all, we are blessed in the Carolinas to be able to use our outdoor spaces well into the winter months, since we usually don’t see frigid temperatures or snow until late January or February. So, having a little Christmas celebration on the patio is totally feasible. I’ll be sharing my finished project in a few weeks, but for now, here’s some winter outdoor inspiration:
And, an overall concept of my winter patio project:
Do you use (and decorate) your outdoor spaces in the winter?

You have such a great patio I am sure it will turn out great! I love that we get to hang out outside in “winter” :)

In Santa Barbara, California we have an almost “eternal spring”. We decorate and use our outdoor spaces all year. Drinking hot cocoa out by our fire pit is an especially fun activity we do outdoors at Christmas time.
BTW, I really like the plaid blankets on your mood board.

Yes, we can be outside most of the year, it is so wonderful to not be in the 110’s and above, so we love the cooler temps for the winter time. Love your mood board too.
Love your ideas for the porch! We have a back porch much like yours and we always decorate it for Christmas with a tree, and sometimes stockings over the fireplace. It is always an extra entertaining space for the holiday parties! It is my middle child’s favorite spot to decorate for Christmas!
Love it! Happy CHRISTmas decorating!!
I am in love with your patio! May I ask what the red and black fabric is called and if it is an outdoor fabric?
