4 Christmas Decorating Tips for Warm Weather Climates
The carols we sing might refer to snow and ice, but many Americans aren’t living in a winter wonderland when Christmas rolls around. If you live in warmer parts of the country, forget about tradition and embrace these unique festive decorating ideas instead.

Focus on Outdoor Areas
Throw net lights from an online retailer like Christmas Lights Etc over the trees in your yard to give them some festive flair. Wrap strings of lights around your own palms, or get even glitzier with lighted palm trees. An inflatable Santa figurine and some illuminated snowflakes or reindeer can complete your outdoor display.
Embrace Artificial Trees
Make a Christmas Wreath From Succulents
Living in warmer climates doesn’t mean all plants are off limits. Succulents thrive in these conditions, so why not use them to create a distinctive Christmas wreath?
Better Homes and Gardens explains how crafty homemakers can turn a ready-made sphagnum moss wreath into this warm weather Christmas decoration. Choose succulents that grow slowly, like sedum and mother of pearl plant. Remember to water your wreath every three to 10 weeks, depending on the weather, to keep it looking its best through the festive season.
Your Christmas decorations should reflect what Christmas means to you. Think outside the box and you can create a festive space that truly represents the way your experience the season.
