Holiday Essentials For Your Backyard Patio

Holiday Essentials For Your Backyard Patio

With the holiday season fast approaching, you are anxious to decorate your home so that everyone gets into the holiday spirit. But as you know, this doesn’t necessarily mean you have to have snow and cold temperatures outside. In fact, even if no snow is forecast, you can add items to your backyard patio to make it the most festive spot in the neighborhood. If you’re eager to find out which patio accessories will be important holiday essentials, here are some of our recommendations.

Wreaths and Plants

Whether it’s Thanksgiving or Christmas, nothing says the holiday season has arrived more so than having various wreaths and plants on your patio. If you agree, start by hanging some beautiful grapevine wreaths here and there, since these timeless classics always have a simple charm about them. As for plants, purchase some poinsettia and have them on tables or placed on your patio’s floor. With their beautiful red colors, these plants will brighten up any area while you’re spending time with family members or entertaining guests.

Retractable Awnings

For something that can be useful over the holidays as well as throughout the year, consider installing a retractable awning. Once you do, you’ll have plenty of backyard shade, since Rollac retractable awnings come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. In fact, we bet that once Santa pays you a visit and discovers your awning can lower the temperature on your patio by as much as 20 degrees, he may decide to take a break from his rounds and have an extra cookie or glass of milk. Able to be controlled by remote control or even with a myLink app on your smartphone, you’ll wonder how you ever made it through holidays in the past without your awning.


Unfortunately, bugs, high wind gusts, and harmful UV rays from the sun don’t take holidays off. Thus, when you want to venture outside to your patio for some holiday celebrating, it can be difficult to enjoy yourself. That is, unless you have ZipShades on your patio. Retractable like the awning, ZipShades are outdoor patio accessories that are becoming more and more popular each year. Easily installed over different surfaces, the ZipShades have been wind-tested up to 80 mph and can cover up to 235 square feet while still remaining very taut.

Seasonal Blankets and Pillows

To make your backyard patio even more cozy over the holidays, add some holiday-themed throw blankets and pillows to your outdoor furniture. For a finishing touch, compliment any poinsettias you have around by adding a small evergreen tree that is brightly lit with holiday lights. Once everything is in place, your patio will be a spot you’ll never want to leave over the holiday season.

Outdoor Structures

Since you already have a beautiful home and patio, you want to give it that extra pizzazz by introducing even more elegance and style to your holiday oasis. To do so, go all the way and make sure Santa can’t miss your house by installing a Camargue. Instantly turning your patio into an extension of your home’s interior, your Camargue will result in increased UV protection, lower patio temperatures, and a luxurious feeling that Santa and your guests are unlikely to find anywhere else.

Once you’ve got the wreaths and plants in place, tossed a few pillows and blankets onto your patio furniture, and are ready to spend quality time with your family and friends, find out how you can complete your patio masterpiece by learning more about retractable awnings, ZipShades, and luxurious outdoor structures by contacting the patio experts at Rollac.
