Stacked Christmas Presents To make your front porch pop with color, wrap multiple boxes of different sizes in brightly colored wrapping paper, dress them up with festive bows and place them on either side of your front door in garden planters. A wreath on each door adds welcome cheer to the display. Editor's Tip: Have blankets ready to toss over the gift-wrap display in case of wet weather, or take them inside on a snowy or rainy day.
Tip #1: Think Overscale Our first tree illustrates a technique that most home decorators miss: using overscaled ornaments. The large silver balls and stars have a huge impact. Though oversized decorations may cost a bit more, you won't need many (about a dozen for an average size tree), and the effect will be stunning.
