After you've decked your halls and your tree, it's time to take the holiday glow outside. We've rounded up the best sparkle and shine for your home's exterior.
One of our family holiday traditions is to put on our pajamas, fill travel cups with hot chocolate and drive around looking for Christmas lights. Our local moms' blog keeps a running list of the best streets and parks, so definitely do a search for "Christmas lights" in your area to see if someone has already compiled the most festive places in your hometown.
With all the joy our neighbors bring to our evenings with their stunning outdoor displays, let's add our own to the mix. Scroll through our dazzling picks to illuminate your home with plenty of Christmas cheer.
The mix of starburst-inspired pendant, cascading and tabletop lights set the scene for a truly magical dinner party, but would also make for an equally charming front porch display. Use a variety of lighting and layers of greenery for a fuller, more interesting design.
Hang these glowing orbs in branches or on your porch for a lovely ambience. To create your own one-of-a-kind decoration, fill the hollow center with greenery or ornaments. When it's time to pack away your holiday decor, each frame folds flat for easy storage.
Embrace nature with these rattan vine spheres. The versatile decoration adds rustic charm to your flower beds, under a tree, on your porch, along stairs or placed in planters with greenery. Each sphere is interwoven with fairy lights for beautiful radiance.

He glitters with twinkle lights and brings a note of whimsy to your outdoor decor.
