It’s time again for Inspirada’s annual Christmas decorating contest, Deck the Halls! Grab a cup of hot chocolate and take a stroll through the community to check out the stunning holiday displays. This event is sure to get you and your family into the holiday spirit just in time for the big day!
Each December, residents are encouraged to show off their festive spirit by decorating their home with twinkling light displays, wreaths, and other trademark holiday details. From classic displays and vintage-style Christmas lights to more unique, modern approaches, there is sure to be a decked-out home for every taste in the neighborhood.
This year’s contest submission period ran from November 17 to December 9. Now that all the entrants have been locked in, residents can cast their votes for their favorite houses online from December 12-25. Winners will be announced on December 26 and presented with a special prize! You can view photos of this year’s contenders to help you get in the holiday spirit.
Of course, you don’t have to be a part of Deck the Halls to deck out your Inspirada home! If you’re having a hard time deciding how to turn your home base into a winter wonderland, we’ve got some simple holiday decorating ideas to help get you started.
- Hang wreaths in each of your front windows for outdoor décor with simple charm.
- Create an inviting holiday mailbox with mixed pine, red accents, and pinecones secured with wire.
- Welcome your guests in holiday style with an entry arbor, complete with lights and a garland.
- Add seasonal greenery to your window boxes.
- Dress up your front door with a festive Christmas garland that matches your front door color.
- Turn glass cylinders into luminaries by placing a cranberry-red candle and miniature ornaments inside each vase.
The possibilities don’t stop there, though! Residents in the past have included laser light displays, inflatable polar bears, and even entire lawns full of characters from popular films like “Despicable Me” and “Star Wars.”
