Floridians can enjoy the holiday season outdoors just as much as folks in northern climates. All it takes is a bit of creativity, planning, and imagination. A visit to Cypress Creek Landscape Supply can help. We have the supplies to support your efforts to make your yard a holiday haven. Read on to learn exciting ways to enjoy your yard more this holiday season.
Many great plants fitting for the holiday season grow well in Florida. Use pottery in various sizes. A Norfolk Island Pine can serve as a tabletop holiday tree. Cyclamen blooms in cool weather, and it is often used as an indoor accent plant. Its leaves are dark green to silvery. Coupled with the twisting flowers in white, red, or pink, Cyclamen is perfect for creating a holiday vibe. Amaryllis bulbs can grow beautiful flowers perfect for the season, as well, with their orange-red flowers.
Holly should be planted as opposed to potted, and various species thrive in Florida. Adorn the landscaping around your main outdoor living space with holly in anticipation of the holidays. With their dark green leaves and vibrant red berries, holly branches can be cut and used as décor indoors and out-of-doors.
If you’ve installed a garden path in your yard, why not transform it for the holidays? In addition to various plants that evoke the holiday spirit, add extra lighting and themed scenery to inspire holiday thrills. Get creative and plan an activity that incorporates a stroll down your holiday path.
If you have a pergola or some other type of covering over your outdoor living space, hang snowflakes and lighting that evokes a winter scene. Set up an outdoor screen and invite family, friends, and/or neighbors to watch a holiday movie together. Serve sugar cookies decorated for the holidays and an aromatic seasonal drink, such as Wassail. Invite everyone to bring their favorite lawn chair, wear their favorite “ugly Christmas t-shirt” (instead of a hot sweater), and sing holiday songs after the movie is over. Unless the neighbors are already at your house, go Christmas caroling in the neighborhood!
Install a stone fire pit in your backyard using the rock or stone of your choice. Our firepit kits at Cypress Creek Landscape Supply include Ashford, Rustic Bluff, Canyon Grey, Ledgestone, and more. We have options in wood and stone furniture that can be used for comfortable seating around the firepit. Add touches of the holiday theme at a safe distance from the fire pit, of course. Set out some marshmallow roasting forks and all the ingredients for s’mores. Play some holiday music, light a cozy fire, and adorn the scene with seasonal foliage.
