If You’re Going to Splurge on One Over-the-Top Decoration… This Is It

This Christmas, lawn ornaments are where it's at.

By Courtney Thompson

If you’ve read any of my stories of late, you know two things: One, my love for Christmas is so strong that I’m practically Buddy the Elf. And two, I love me some outdoor decorations. Yes, indoor decorations — from the tree to the stockings to everything in between — will be the backdrop to your family’s holiday memories for years to come, but the outdoor holiday items are what's going to set your house apart from the others on the block. Because there’s keeping up with the Joneses… and then there’s blowing the Joneses out of the freaking water, am I right?!

So, if you’re looking to splurge this year, there’s only one way to go: yard ornaments! To be clear, when I say “splurge,” I’m referring to both finances and your willingness to take in a decoration with a rather large footprint. Because these puppies aren’t small… but that’s what makes them so amazing. Like something you’d find in the lobby of a Vegas hotel or on the grounds of Walt Disney World, Frontgate’s yard ornaments are big, beautiful showstoppers. (You’ll remember Frontgate is also Dorinda Medley’s go-to shop for all things Christmas!)

To be clear, these ornaments are special. They are luxurious and elegant, not something you’d pick up while shopping at a big-box retailer or that you’d find in a quaint local shop. Compromised of all-weather resin, Frontgate’s collection has a sparkling quality thanks to fiber-optic LED lights that twinkle the night away (each ornament has a six-foot cord). I love that each comes with ground stakes so they can stay put outside and are painted in vibrant, shiny hues that don’t fade. The ornaments are oversized and yes, a wee bit outlandish, but in all the right ways. Truly, your hardest task is going to be convincing your husband that you've got plenty of room to store them 11 months out of the year. (May I suggest your basement? They are too bulky and heavy for the attic!)

The best part? All of them are on sale right now! So, get yourself to Frontgate asap, and before you know it, your house is going to be the envy of everyone in town.
