Don't Forget the Windows for Your Holiday Décor

The holidays are upon us! In Memphis and the surrounding suburbs from Collierville to Midtown, we get to see some of the loveliest holiday décor and light displays on local homes, along with beautiful winter weather. Not only do our neighborhoods go all out for Christmas, but Memphis has a large assortment of holiday activities.

At our marvelous zoo — The Memphis Zoo, which was voted one of the top five zoos in the nation — they put on the annual and dazzling “zoo lights." They deck the halls with magnificent light displays, an ice rink, a twinkle tunnel, a Ferris wheel, magic with Mr. Nick, animal meet and greets, the Arctic outpost adventure and so much more. Local Memphis families surely feel the Christmas spirit the moment they enter the zoo!

Shelby Farms Park in Memphis, one of the largest urban parks in the country, has its annual fundraiser over the holidays, named "Starry Nights." Participating in this event is the perfect opportunity to make memories and family traditions. Once the holidays kick off, rows of cars filled with smiling families marvel as they drive through the park to see dazzling displays featuring millions of lights. It’s truly a remarkable and magical experience.

The Collierville Square, adjacent to Main Street, also gets festive with Christmas lights and displays throughout the square. You might even see Santa Claus in the gazebo!

These are just a few of Memphis's many holiday events for its residents. However, if you prefer a quiet night that still evokes the Christmas spirit, you can wander from neighborhood to neighborhood to see the beautiful holiday décor on Memphis homes. Many of the houses with the most curb appeal and charm have Pella windows. Due to the elegant and classic look of Pella windows, even if they are covered in décor, it's easy to spot the homes with them.

When decorating for Christmas, if you want your home to be the prettiest home on the block, rather than just decorating the roof with lights, why not add décor to your windows as well?

Here are a few ways you can create beautiful window displays:

Use Paint or Decals

We know what you are thinking, "Paint my gorgeous Pella windows?" Well, there is paint that easily wipes off, leaving zero residue behind. You could paint a snowman, elves and even the big man, Santa! 

Certain decals have just enough adhesive to last on your windows for a few weeks, so you do not have to worry about getting sticky glue off your windows either. You can even involve your children in putting up the decals, which they'll delight in; some might even do a great job painting. Overall, this can be a fun family bonding activity that brings cheer to all who see your pretty windows.

Candles

Candles in your windows at Christmas are nice, simple and traditional way to make your home look festive. If you worry about an open flame, you can purchase electric candles. When you want to enhance your indoor and outdoor space, put a few candles in the window.

Window Ornaments

Ornaments don’t have to be only for the Christmas tree. Using removable hooks, hang your favorite ornaments in your windows instead. Ornaments made of glass or ones that sparkle and shine look particularly striking in windows. Another Christmas bonding activity could involve the family making homemade ornaments like snowflakes or wreaths to hang in the windows. This will add a personal touch of holiday spirit to your home.

New Windows

If you do not already have Pella windows, please visit our showroom in Germantown and we can come to you for a consultation. We have a fantastic selection of gorgeous windows and doors.

In addition to their beauty, our windows are also energy efficient. If you notice during these cold winter months that it's pretty drafty in your home, it likely means it's time for new windows. Pella windows are considered one of the top window brands in the nation, not just for aesthetics but also for efficiency. Plus, since they're highly efficient, you're also able to save more money on utilities! Treat yourself this Christmas to new windows by Pella, and get started by scheduling a free consultation.

From everyone at Pella Windows and Doors of Memphis, we hope you have a lovely holiday season!
