Outdoor Christmas Decorating + NEW Deck And Pergola Peek
Hey there sweet Foxes!! I’m happy to be here sharing a little peek at the new deck and pergola with you. The guys finished a bit ago, but it was far too late in the season for a proper reveal. You know I want to get it all decorated, and have it full of flowers for you!! Until then, Jimmy and I added a little Christmas cheer and had a fire, and you’re invited!!
In all my daily trips running up and down the stairs, okay, so I don’t actually run… but I do haul it up and down the stairs many times a day. And when I do, I often peek out at the new pergola. And center stage are our egg chairs.
Well my wheels started turning, and even though our pergola is open, and I live in the PNW… I thought, gee I bet my new garlands would look SO cute on those egg chairs. And boy do they!!
I normally try to keep things on the realistic side here, but if you can’t go a little over the top at Christmastime, when can you?
While admittedly, I couldn’t leave any of this outside… it was fun to create a fireside Christmas snuggle spot and stretch my styling muscles. So thank you for indulging me!
The garlands and urn fillers both came came pre-lit making it very quick to just pop the urn fillers in my urns, and lay the garlands across the top of the egg chairs. It actually took my longer to try to get that red lantern to sit level on the tree stump! Okay, it took me longer to get that lamp level. Because in some ways… I am sooooo type A. I was going to get that darn lamp level, and that was that. hahaha
After I snapped these picture to share with you, Jim and I got comfy and stayed out chatting until the fire died down. We love to sit outside without any distractions and catch up.
There is just something about being outside, and a fire only makes it better. Yet even with the yummy blankets, and that extra thick red plaid cutie, the chilly air (and our missed dinner time) eventually drove us inside.
I hope you are stealing some magic Christmas moments for yourself! Whatever that looks like for you.
Merry Christmastime, Shannon
