2018 Christmas Patio & Yard - Day & Night

Since we live in the desert and we have some of our best weather this time of year, I thought the patio  & yard needed to have a little Christmas Cheer too.

Let's start with the day time view of the pato.
 .  We spend a lot of time out here.  Right now we are having temps in the 70's so it couldn't be more perfect. 

The drapes and the roll down shade make it feel like an outdoor room.  If we do have a chill at night we can light the lava firepit and we are toasty warm.

My really old Rag Santa is taking a rest outside too.  He loves this weather.

It's always fun to pull things from my stash to decorate for the seasons.  The Merry Christmas Pillow, plaid throw, lantern and a few shiny brights made it look like Christmas.

Some colored lights on the plants and a cute little Christmas tree with battery lights make it festive at night.

The pool was my main "wish" when we bought this house. We remodeled the kitchen first, then the pool was top priority.  It was finished in time for our first summer.  I love it and spend all summer just cooling off and relaxing in it.  My favorite place to be. 
A few lights around the pool and it becomes a night time fairy land.

 The pool light changes colors, so there is always something different to see.

 Love this aqua color too, this is what the pool water looks like during the day.
From the side yard, looking back towards the patio.    Ok, I think some hot cocoa is in order and just enjoy the lights. 

How about you, do you like to decorate outside too? 

To stay up to date on all the makeovers taking place at our new home, I would love to have you follow me.  You don't want to miss any of our "Hits & Misses".

  1. OH Marty I am so envious of that pool. How great it all looks at night with all your pretty lights. Love your porch decor too.
    Very pretty and festive. Happy Weekend.

  2. Wow I love this. I’ll take the 70 deg. temps all day long! I like how you added the festive touches. The lights around the pool look so pretty and of course the changing pool colors would keep me mesmerized!

  3. Very nice! I have definitely scaled back with outside decor, but still a little. Our landscape lights do most of the job year round outside. :)

  4. Hi Marty! Oh, your patio is so lovely and that pool! I'm so proud for you getting your pool and your new home is so beautiful. Hope your Christmasing is going well.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  5. Your new home has really come together and the pool is awesome. Christmas will be here before we know it. The stores look like it came and went already. Really interested in the porch roll down screen. How wide is it?

    1. We bought ours at Lowes and it is 6' wide, but they comes in several widths and are quite inexpensive.

  6. Marty, your pool and patio are beautifully dressed for Christmas. The pool looks so magical with its changing color. I know you enjoy your gorgeous outdoor space!

  7. Marty everything looks so festive and fun! I had plans on decking the halls on our outdoor living area but it hasn't happened yet and probably won't but I guess there is alway next year.
