- Putting up a Christmas tree on your lawn is also a great idea. Add some pretty lights, garlands, and decorations to brighten up the whole outdoor area.
- Make sure to have some elegant outdoor furniture on the lawn so that the whole family can spend some quality relaxing together outside while the kids run around and play.

If you are really running out of time and cannot seem to get your head around what to do, then here is a quick solution for you: forget all the complicated decorations and simply put up a sign that greets all guests and neighbors with a delightful message that captures the essence of this festive season.
