Country life is perfect, because you can celebrate holidays right in the garden. And even in winter-New Year and Christmas. The main thing is to prepare!
In winter, the city is a little different from the city: the stars are brighter and more mysterious, the snow is whiter and fluffier, the nights are darker and quieter. Therefore, it is easier to create an atmosphere of magic, turning the usual interiors into festive ones.

And then the main holiday of the year will leave an unforgettable impression!
Do not skimp on festive lighting and decoration of facades. Hang light fixtures or hang LED cords, highlighting architectural details. Hang light garlands that will decorate fences and gates, light electric and wax candles that illuminate windows painted with Christmas motifs.

The figure of Santa Claus with a bag of gifts can “climb” along the drainpipe — it only needs to be fixed. Don’t forget to decorate the porch. Figurines of angels, colorful illumination, electric stars and candles will turn an ordinary place for garden gatherings into a fairy-tale hall.
The porch can be decorated with flower arrangements of dry cones, birch bark and settle here snowmen, angels, Santa Claus and Snow Maiden.

In the southern region, miniature coniferous plants in tubs and baskets with decorative leafy and flowering plants are used: cineraria primorskaya, hoikher and shrubs of different varieties, hellebore. An indispensable detail is a Christmas wreath made of fir branches, holly or mistletoe on the door of the house or on the gate.
The December garden is beautiful in itself: spruce covered with snow, coral shoots of Cornus mas, twisting branches of varietal willow and hazel ‘Contorta’. There are just a few touches left to make it truly Christmas-like.
The monolithic shape of the crown of coniferous and evergreen shrubs looks best in a frame of a thin “web” of white electric lights. The graceful curves of the branches of large deciduous trees can be decorated with LED cords that run from the base of the trunk and pull along each branch, emphasizing the beautiful silhouette of solitaire. If there is no time for such painstaking work, just hang garlands of white lights on the trees. And, of course, do not forget about the animals in the garden-bird feeders should always be filled with delicious seeds. The highlight of the festive decor will be LED figures of deer on a snow-covered lawn or a low Christmas tree in front of the house, decorated with Christmas toys.
