Southlake, Texas is a beautiful city located in short distance to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Its schools, beautiful scenery, exquisite neighborhoods and location that is close to shopping and other forms of recreation make it a highly desirable area to live in for work and play.
Front door decorations
While some homes focus on large displays of light, recent trends in holiday decorations have taken on a more simple, rustic and artistic appeal. For instance, large front door decorations, such as those made with magnolias and eucalyptus provide a warm and festive feel. Magnolias can be used to create Christmas wreathes, or you can paint branches in a variety of colors and place them in planters to decorate the entryway. Complete the ensemble with a bunch of pretty leaves combined with pine cones secured with floral wire strategically placed over the door.
Large ornaments used in a variety of ways are another simple, yet beautiful, addition to your outdoor décor. Large ornaments, particularly ones made of glass or other reflective or translucent materials, can be hung from a tree, doorway or window space. A recent trend in regard to ornaments is to place them all together in either a bowl or an apothecary jar. Sprinkle on fake snow to give it a particularly frosty, wintery look.
Webbed mason jars
Webbed mason jars are very easy to make. To create one, gather wire strung with beads in any sparkly color, and a mason jar. Place beaded wire in the form of a web around each mason jar and place a candle inside for soft lighting. Place three together on top of a large plate by the front door for beautiful ambiance. Separate the jars from the surrounding areas and place candy on the plate with a note “enjoy” to have an evening out while trick-or-treaters stop by.
Decorating the home with elegant touches here and there are the perfect way to get into the spirit of the holiday season. The holidays are always fun in Southlake. There are tons of fun festivities to partake in from October onward. Oktoberfest, special tree lighting and music events are just a few attractions that make Southlake, and in particular Carillon, a fun place to live.
