Decorating your home for any special season is an exciting time, especially if you have little ones who make it all the more fun! With the average consumer spending $140 on holiday decorations and furnishings, it’s clear that we take our celebrations very seriously.
To double the fun, why not continue the decor from indoors to out? That way you can achieve the ultimate Backyardland experience and make the most of your luxury gazebo or pergola. To make this easy, we’ve come up with our best seasonal ideas for spectacular backyard decor.
Gazebo & pergola decor ideas for Spring
Spring is the season of rebirth, growth and of course…Easter egg hunts! Why not transform your backyard structure into a Mad Hatter’s tea party space for a fun celebration, complete with vintage tea cups and delicious food! This is a great way to make use of any dining furniture you have under your gazebo, as well as tying in the themes of Spring and Easter.
Warmer temperatures also come with Spring, which means more time spent outdoors enjoying your pergola or gazebo. During the months of March, April, and May you’ll be able to celebrate St Patrick's Day and commemorate Memorial Day. You can make use of your outdoor structure when it comes to days like these by adding flags, props, and other themed essentials.
Alternatively, why not give your family movie nights a fun twist by hosting them outdoors! Simply add a projector, comfortable seating and plenty of snacks.
Gazebo & pergola decor ideas for Summer
Summer is peak pergola season! As well as providing some welcome shade and a safe spot for the BBQ grill, your outdoor structure can host many celebrations, such as July 4th parties, Labor Day get-togethers, and camp-themed cookouts!
We love the idea of decorating your pergola or gazebo in a perfectly patriotic way, adding decor with stars and stripes and using serveware in shades of red, white and blue. Other easy options include colored cushions, DIY decorations and sparkling string lights that will allow you to continue the celebrations into the evening.
Another great idea for summertime celebrations beneath your gazebo or pergola is to open up your very own tiki bar! Inspired by memorable vacations on the islands of the pacific, this idea is perfect for both our sleek Trenton Pergola and the more traditional style of our Fairhaven. For this idea, we suggest creating a bar space with stools and seating, then dressing it up with tiki masks, torches and presenting each of your guests with their very own lei.
Gazebo & pergola decor ideas for Fall
Fall is full of festivities. Starting with seasonal spookiness for Halloween through to family-themed fun for Thanksgiving, there’s so many ways you can use your gazebo in your celebrations.
We love the idea of transforming your gazebo into a haunted house or mausoleum in the backyard, which can easily be achieved by adding decor such as fake spiderwebs, dangling bats and creepy-colored lights, such as green and red.
In fact, adding extra lighting, sound or heating to your outdoor structure has never been easier, thanks to each of our gazebos being equipped with our exclusive PowerPort™ feature, with three electrical outlets and three USB ports that are transferable to any post on the structure.
When it comes to Thanksgiving, why not embrace all the fall feels and plan a beautiful outdoor banquet, complete with string lights, scented candles and comfortable dining furniture. Nothing beats celebrating Thanksgiving out in the open, surrounded by falling leaves and stunning sunsets.
Gazebo & pergola decor ideas for Winter
Our gazebos and pergolas are all made with rust-resistance and durability in mind, which means they can be enjoyed all-year round. So when it comes to winter celebrations such as Christmas and New Year, the festivities can continue outdoors!
For Christmas, you might want to transform your outdoor structure into Santa’s Grotto, or even an Alpine-inspired chalet space, complete with fur throws, vintage wooden skis and steaming cups of hot cocoa.
For a seriously impressive New Year celebration, why not turn your Backyard Discovery pergola or gazebo into an ice bar? This is easily done with stacks of acrylic ice blocks, your favorite cold drinks and some cool-colored lighting, such as blue or ice white. Introducing lighting and a drinks fridge to your structure is made effortless with our removable PowerPort™ feature.
