  • How to Create a Festive Space on Your Deck or Balcony

Looking to turn your outdoor balcony or deck into the perfect festive space for friends and family? We can help you elevate your home for the ultimate holiday gathering!

Just because this space is outside, it does not mean it should be neglected. With summer underway in South Africa, we can expect stunning weather and so we want to help you make the most of your outdoor space for those beautiful summer evenings.


Start with your railings. You want your house to look great from all angles, so start by hanging chunky Christmas garlands along the railings accompanied by baubles and fairy lights. These simple decorations will make a good impression while not looking overdone.

Christmas Trees

Add a simple yet stylish wooden Christmas tree. These are a great way to add some Christmas spirit to your balcony without worrying about mess and weather conditions. You can even spice it up with more fairy lights. Add some comfortable seating and make it look inviting to encourage guests to want to sit outside. Add some red, white, green, gold, or silver Christmas-inspired pillows to add to the Christmas spirit!


Plant some plants! Whether you prefer pot plants or hanging plants, you can add some beautiful winter flowers in red or white to add to your balcony’s aesthetics.


Decorative lighting is a must! Light up your outside space with a variety of lighting, such as fairy lights, wall lights, lamps, and lanterns. You can even go the solar lantern route to achieve that high-impact, low-effort glow-up. Adding fairy lights over your outdoor plants also brings an element of magic to the space. You can now buy nets of fairy lights, which are even easier to place over your greenery and will look incredible.


If you have open wall space, you can hang some Christmas-themed wall décor or opt for other options such as hanging baskets, which can be filled with festive foliage.

As you can tell, there are many small additions you can use to enhance your outside space and make it feel homely for the festive season. You can determine which of these options will work best based on the space you have available, as you do not want it to look and feel too cluttered, but you want just the right amount of décor to make it feel festive.
