Decorating Your Gazebo To Be Stylish Year Round

Buy GazebosGazebos are a relaxing place to sit and socialize with family and friends. they add character to a backyard or any open area. There are several ways to decorate your gazebo to fit all seasons on any budget. Most gazebos are octagon in shape. Start with screwing in plant hooks in the center of all sections, excluding entryways. These hooks can be used for everything from hanging plants to paper lanterns depending on the season. Also purchase two sets of swag mini-lights. I prefer white lights which give off a soft glow and allow good visualization at night. These can be hung around the inner lip of the roof on the exterior of the gazebo. Another option is to put them around the railing.

For summer decorating you can buy multicolored hibiscus petals at a craft or party store. If you cut a small hole in the center of the petals, you can insert the petals into the lights giving your gazebo the feel of Hawaii. Choose multicolored hanging plants such as impatiens. If plants are not your style, then you could hang paper lanterns. I prefer the lighted paper lanterns. You can purchase luau themed decorations online from orientaltradingcompany.com or at your local party store.

Depending on what area of the country you live in depends on how you can decorate your gazebo for the fall. If you are still using your gazebo frequently then all you need to do in order to decorate it is to hang plastic jack-o-lanterns. If you are not using your gazebo for its intended purpose then you can really decorate it for the season by placing scarecrows and witches around the benches. These are easy to create by stuffing old clothes with leaves. You can add a strobe light and fake spider webs for a scarier effect.

Decorating your gazebo for the winter is also dependent on if you use it or not. We live in a colder climate area so we keep the swag lights up or change them to multicolored Christmas lights. We placed an old, artificial Christmas tree in the center and tied it to the railings. After adding a few strings of light, you have a gorgeous Christmas light display.

The spring is the most fun for decorating your gazebo. You can pick from a multitude of hanging flowers and plants. I also planted tulip and daffodil bulbs around the base so we have colorful flowers in the spring. For Easter, you can put plastic eggs on ribbon and hang them from the railings or the hooks. Your gazebo is a beautiful part of your landscape so you can include it in all of your holiday and seasonal decorating. No matter what season or how often you use your gazebo, there's always an easy, inexpensive way to decorate it.
