Start Outside

First impressions count, and what better way to greet your guests than with a beautifully adorned exterior? Follow the steps below to turn your home’s welcome into a wow-come:

Step 1: Assessing Your Home’s Exterior

Begin by examining your home’s exterior with a fresh perspective. Take a step back, perhaps across the street, and view your home as a canvas for your Christmas decorations. Consider the architecture, the number of windows, the style of your roof, and the natural surroundings. This initial assessment is crucial in planning a cohesive and visually stunning display.

Step 2: Gathering Inspiration

Once you have a clear understanding of your home’s exterior, it’s time to gather ideas. Look for inspiration that complements the style of your home. Whether it’s a classic, contemporary, or a more thematic approach, ensure that your chosen decorations resonate with the overall aesthetic of your property. Utilize online resources, magazines, or even your local wildlife for creative ideas. Head over to our Pinterest page to start gaining some inspiration right away.

Step 3: Choosing the Right Decor

Selecting the right outdoor Christmas decor is a delicate balance between style and functionality. For more information about things to consider, read our previous blog article here. But for now, consider these popular choices for different areas of your home:

  • Roof and Walkways: Opt for elegant warm-white or ice-white lights, icicle lights, or even rope lights to outline the roof and illuminate walkways.
  • Columns and Railings: Mini lights or icicle lights can add a subtle yet charming effect to outdoor columns and handrails.
  • Trees and Bushes: Use net lights or trunk wrap lights for uniform coverage. Wide-angle LED mini lights are excellent for intensity and coverage on trees.
  • Extra touches: Don’t be afraid to experiment and add extravagant touches to your outdoor display. The image below shows woodland creatures we recently incorporated into a client’s porch, to great effect!



Installation Tips:

  • Measurements: Accurately measure the areas you plan to decorate. This includes the length of the roofline, circumference of trees, and the rough dimensions of bushes.
  • Pre-Installation: Test all lights before installation. Organise your decorations and tools for a smooth setup process.
  • Installation: Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for installing lights and decorations. Use appropriate clips, stakes, and ties to secure your decorations safely.

Noble & Whyte’s outdoor decoration services offer a range of options to bring your home’s facade to life; all while removing the risks and stress from having to install the decorations yourself. From twinkling festive lights that outline your home’s architecture to elegantly decorated wreaths and garlands, these touches create a welcoming and festive ambiance.

A Welcome to Remember

As your guests step inside, let them be greeted by a foyer or entrance that exudes festive elegance.

The reception area is the perfect place to make a statement. A grand, festooned garland winding up the staircase, a luxurious Christmas tree in the corner, or a sophisticated arrangement of candles and ornaments on a console table can set the tone for the rest of your home. This space should not only look inviting but also feel warm and festive; so try using candles or reed diffusers in order to add subtle scents of pine, cinnamon, or spiced apple wafting through the air.


Accentuating Key Features

Every home has its unique features, be it a grand piano, an elegant fireplace, or a majestic staircase. These are the areas where you can really showcase your creativity with festive decor. Drape garlands laced with lights over mantelpieces, adorn pianos with delicate ornaments, and transform staircases into cascades of festive elegance.

The key is to enhance these features without overwhelming them, using decorations that complement the existing decor and architecture of your home.



The Importance of a Showstopping Christmas Tree

No festive decoration is complete without a stunning Christmas tree. It’s the centerpiece of your holiday décor and a symbol of the season’s joy and wonder.

Whether you prefer a traditional look or a more contemporary style, the tree should reflect your personal taste while making a bold statement. Professional Christmas tree installers, like those at Noble & Whyte, can help you choose the right tree, lights, and ornaments, ensuring it’s not only beautifully decorated but also perfectly positioned to enhance your home’s festive atmosphere.

If you are confident you can make your tree something spectacular, follow our top tree decorating tips:

  1. Embrace a Theme: Select a cohesive theme for your tree, whether it’s a classic colour scheme or a more personal motif. This sets the stage for a harmonious and stylish display.
  2. Start with Classics: Begin with traditional ornaments and baubles in whatever hues make up the foundation of your theme. These pieces provide a backdrop for the more unique decorations to stand out upon.
  3. Shape for Fullness: Take time to fluff and shape your tree, working from the inside out. This step is key to achieving a lush, natural appearance.
  4. Mix Ornament Sizes: Combine large and small ornaments. Tuck larger ones deeper into the branches for depth, and place smaller ones near the tips for a delicate finish.
  5. Incorporate Ribbons: Use wired ribbons for easy styling. Layer different textures and widths to add a touch of luxury and depth to your tree’s decor.

These tips are designed to help you create a Christmas tree that’s not just a festive feature, but a true embodiment of the Noble & Whyte aesthetic.
