Don't overlook the backyard as a scenic spot for adding holiday sparkle.
Dusted with snow and decorated with evergreens, outdoor tables and chairs transform into artful still lifes. Arrange furniture to encourage open-air mingling when the weather allows, then trim patio doors with garlands strung with white lights. Complete the scene by dressing up footed antique urns: Layer cedar, pine and seeded eucalyptus boughs with small tree lights and top with ornaments for simple shimmer.
