Fill vintage minnow buckets with poinsettias, evergreens or birch branches for instant festive lake decor.
Christmas trees at the lake house can be decorated in many styles, even nautical. If you live lakeside in the woods, a plaid and camp themed tree is perfect. Birch garland and a wool camp blanket as a tree skirt add finishing touches.
If you have a boathouse or structure by the water, it's the perfect place to decorate for the holidays by simply adding a wreath, some greenery or lights. One of the most beautiful views of a lake home is from the back of the house where it is seen from the water. Don't forget to decorate where the Christmas tree lights from indoors or outside decor can be enjoyed from the water or frozen lake as people still boat or snowmobile by.
No need to put away the nautical decor at the end of summer - keep your favorite decor up year round and just tuck in the holiday. This wooden boat makes a perfect centerpiece on a green plaid tablecloth with holiday china.
Whether a coffee bar, hot chocolate station or hot toddies by the fire, nothing makes a lake house more cozy than a self-serve space to make a favorite drink. This tea towel sums up life at the lake and family time together over the holidays, "The Lake Anchors the Soul." Find this great towel and others hereat Lake Effect & Co.
Getting cozy is a top priority while at the lake, especially over the holidays. Be sure to have blankets over the chairs, extra throw pillows and a delicious candle burning. This Bourbon Spiked Cider candle is just one of the wonderful candles available from Lake Effect & Co.
Start some traditions like a family dinner out at a local supper club. Our favorite here in Minocqua is Norwood Pines. It is gorgeous during the holidays!
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our lake to yours! Follow Your Arrow, Kristin
