Forget the halls. Deck out the deck this Christmas!
In beautiful Brisbane, we don’t ever get a White Christmas. It’s all hot days, plenty of sunshine and long cool drinks. Its swimming pools, decks, patios and the great outdoors…..Why stop at a wreath on the front door? Take advantage of our truly tropical climate this festive season and decorate your deck or outdoor area.
Make the most of the outdoor space you have. If you don’t have a pool, think about setting up a paddling pool or water slide for the kids. (and the adults actually!)
What about some classic backyard games? Boules, giant chess, quoits, outdoor bowling, yard Yahtzee….the list goes on. Maybe set up a bar with an esky or two for the big day. Stock it well with all manner of drinks and snacks and let people help themselves throughout the day.
Break out the barbie for your friends and family this year instead of cooking a turkey in the oven. Seafood, shish kabobs, salads, roast lamb or a glazed ham in the Webber……Sound good?
Light Up Your Deck
Light displays are always gorgeous and are affordable to run with the advent of solar Christmas lights. A deck adorned with twinkling lights will help set the mood for a memorable festive season full of joy, laughter and love.
Christmas Tree Outside?
What about a Christmas tree outside this year? Decorate your favourite backyard tree or put up your plastic tree on the deck.
