1. Swap Out A String Of Lights For A Holiday Theme

It takes just a few minutes to take down the white lights that frame the sides of your patio cover to put up ones with globes in the shape of Santa, turkeys, or snowflakes. Since your Las Vegas backyard has few shrubs, hanging strings of colorful outdoor lights bring some colorful holiday pizazz to the desert. You could even weave the lights through the roof of a latticed patio cover for an extra special look.

2. Wrap Pillars In Tinsel Or Evergreen For A Forest Look

Go vertical by adding miles of sparkling tinsel or garlands of evergreen wrapped around the supporting pillars for your cover. Zip ties will hold everything in place. You can even hang plastic ball ornaments and lights for an added layer of fun.

3. Welcome Guests With Wreaths On Patio Doors

Welcome your visitors into a holiday wonderland by positioning wreaths on your glass, sliding, or French doors. While the tradition may be just for the front door, outdoor entertaining plans often focus on the space just off your kitchen. Place your holiday decor where everyone will see it!

4. Add An Inflatable To Your Patio Roof For Fun

If your condominium has limited space in the yard, take your decorating efforts up! Most inflatable snowmen and reindeer sold at the big box stores are relatively lightweight. You just need to run an extension cord up top and make sure to secure your inflatable to the edge of the roof with bungee cords. Now, you can have Santa dropping in for the family celebration.

5. Decorate An Outdoor Tree For A Festive Living Space

You spend many weekend nights outside under your insulated patio cover. Why not open the presents in your favorite living space, too? Invest in an artificial tree designed for the outdoors and deck it out with lights and your favorite non-breakable ornaments. You can create a fake fireplace using lights wrapped around logs for a cozy effect.

6. Upgrade Lights To Include Choreographed Music

How do you keep the party going without lifting a finger? Invest in the SmartLights system and use the iPhone app to tie your holiday lights to your favorite playlist. You can run strings up the base of the palm trees and through the fronds of your smaller plants. Sit back and watch your yard come to life.
