Lighting is Key
Now that the Florida weather is finally cooling off, being out on your porch or patio is much more pleasant. Spend a little time making it even more inviting by stringing light strands around the inside of your screen enclosure to give it a cozy glow. Apple spice and pine scented candles also provide attractive lighting and will make your patio smell great.
Create an Inviting Ambiance
You and your guests will enjoy spending time in your patio area much more if it has comfortable furniture. Consider adding plush, festive pillows and cushions to make your chairs more inviting. Have a couple light blankets handy too so you can enjoy the fresh outdoor air on chilly nights. Adding a bright outdoor rug can also create a homey feel, and a rug is much nicer to walk on than concrete or tile. Make sure it is resistant to water and mold since patios are subject to rain and moisture. Don’t forget to place decorative trees around your patio!

Wreaths, painted signs, mason jar candle holders…the list of DIY holiday decorating ideas is endless. And did you know just how many great decorations you can make with a pool noodle!?!
