The holidays are already in full effect and if you have not started decorating yet, we are here to help! Enjoying your swimming pool year round is a great benefit of living in south Florida. Here we share a few universal ideas that homeowners can use while decorating their homes for the for the holidays.

One easy way to engage your backyard area during holidays is by installing color-themed lights. This installation is easy and sure to light up your whole night! For Christmas, try green and red or for Hanukkah try white and blue. If you wish to take this a step further or try another route with the lights, try changing out the lighting around or in your pool with these vibrant colors.

Another option is the addition or a fire pit. This adds a cozy atmosphere to the pool area – where you can appreciate the chill of the season while anticipating the fun your pool will offer in spring. Roast marshmallows, revisit lovely family memories and make plans for fun family times in the very place in which great memories are made. This truly brings being home for the holidays to life and is a way to ensure that all guests feel at home and welcome.

Lastly, if you are having a party during the holiday time, make sure to be creative and fun with your holiday decorations. Bring your dream holiday to life with various temporary decorations such a snowmen or menorahs that your guests can enjoy. And what would Christmas be without a little snow? (Besides the holiday season in Florida). Add some fake snow to your table settings or around your buffet set up to show how we can make anything possible.

Make sure to keep the weather in mind during these times. Cooler weather can bring about a bit of wind, causing decorations and other loose items to go into your pool. Keep and eye out to be sure that no items are getting stuck in your drain or sinking to the bottom.
