While most people celebrate the ongoing festive holidays by focusing on inside decor and outside lighting, other parts of the house may be neglected. However, that outdoor furniture wicker piece, usually neglected by everyone during the holidays in lieu of a brightly decorated Christmas tree or Thanksgiving cornucopia, can still produce something unique.
Today, thanks to quality online stores such as Wicker Paradise, no matter what part of the house you choose to put it in, that casual, yet regal piece of wicker craftsmanship can offer something unusual in the way of holiday decor.
Painted In Holiday Colors
Whether it’s Thanksgiving, Christmas or for the New Year, giving that wicker piece a new paint job can add not only holiday cheer, but also give it a more enduring life span. Normally done before or after the summer months, an outdoor wicker piece can last almost indefinitely with a new coat of paint, especially if it’s under a roof covering of some kind.
Now, painted in green, red or even in silver or in gold, welcome visitors in the best of holiday cheer with a cup of holiday beverage and an offer to sit and rest in your newly decorated wicker chair or sofa–that used to sit outside.
Wicker Materials Can Be Many
To many people, wicker denotes a type of workmanship. Actually, it is the kind of woven material made from either synthetic or natural fibers that include rattan, bamboo, vinyl and even sea grass.
A Touch of Rustic Class In Itself
A wicker credenza laden with gaily decorated holiday cookies and hot cocoa trimmings on the side will make it a special corner to gather for either hot cocoa or traditional eggnog. And don’t forget the sparkling pine-cone decorations alongside the gingerbread cookies!
It’s also the perfect spot to stand, and sing traditional Christmas carols that bring back memories of past seasons with loved ones no longer present.
Once the holiday season passes, you can either paint the wicker piece back to the original color. If you have storage space, keep it for next year, and decorate it with holiday bows and ribbons or even white lights. This will give it a distinct touch of elegant, rustic class.
Wicker pieces may be just the right items to instill a sense of nostalgia that you’ll never forget. A quick, convenient online visit to a quality wicker furniture store may give you even more ideas for your next holiday celebration as well.
