Christmas Outdoor Decor

I wanted to do something different than the usual green and red outdoor decor this year.   Last year I made a white topiary placed outside the front door.  It was rather top heavy and I had to break it down to store.  This year I decorated my tan colored urns with white garland and shatterproof ornaments I obtained from a friend who passed away this past spring. 

The ornaments were quite beautiful and if I hadn't taken them they would've been donated to a thrift store.  I added a group of LED Beaded stakes to each urn.

 I also tied silver and white mesh decor bows to the top

 There is a teardrop wreath placed on the front door.  Besides the silver deco mesh, I added silver and white paisley ribbon along with some gold holly leaf ribbon to bring out all the colors.

I have a very large solar lantern with a battery flameless candle on the inside. 

  I decorated the top with oversized and regular ornaments, fillers, ribbon and deco mesh.

 I placed the lantern outside in the corner beside the front door.

The candle comes on at night which give it a wonderful glow.

I like the way my outdoor decorating turned out.  Far from traditional, but very appealing to the eye!
Thanks for visiting!
