Decorate outside to welcome your guests – it doesn't take much to create a Christmas feel by your front door. Here we've used our old, wooden toboggan and a pair of old skis as the main components in a small tableau for the courtyard.
A lantern for candles is almost a necessity. Add a few sprigs of pine and other greens to the toboggan and – voila – you've created a Christmas atmosphere in just a short amount of time.
Here is a lovely christmaspicture from outside JDL 2012.
