We’re still waiting for fluffy white stuff to fill the air, and that means there’s still time do your outside decorating sans snowshoes. In the northwoods, Mother Nature eventually takes care of much of the decorating – nothing like a fresh snowfall at dusk at Pinehurst Inn (Bayfield), with warm lights glowing inside, to remind us of the beauty of the season. At the Cobblestone B&B in Birchwood, the antique cross-country skis remind us of fun after the holidays. These ‘snowy reminders’ from a few previous seasons are just what we need to get motivated.

There are a few more unseasonably mild days in the weather forecast … time yet to hang Christmas decorations outside without danger of frostbite! If you’re in need of some fresh Christmas curb appeal ideas, here’s another from one of Wisconsin’s most stylish B&Bs. Pedal’rs Inn – Wales, looks lovely each year by following the practice of sticking to one theme – that being the Norman Rockwell look – rather than mixing metaphors (no inflatables of Rudolph next to Victorian sleighs here). Innkeeper Dee notes the wreaths, bows, and garland aren’t the only green for the season; the lights are energy-sparing LED.
Why is it that most of us neglect to take advantage of those last mild days of autumn to hang Christmas decorations outside? No, we wait until the mercury registers freezing, flurries fill the air, and the north winds whip to finally get to this task. If you’re in need of some fresh Christmas curb appeal ideas, here are a few from some of Wisconsin’s most stylish B&Bs. Westby House Inn – Westby, keeps it elegant and simple by stringing thousands of white lights matched by fresh balsm garland and warm lights glowing in each window. And there’s nothing like a fresh snowfall at dusk at the Westphal Mansion – Hartford, with warm lights glowing inside, to remind us of the beauty of the season.
