Creating Your Winter Wonderland with Holiday Lighting

Some might say it’s too early to start thinking about holiday lights, but if you want to create a stunning display, you need to start planning now! It’s time to start considering what kind of lights you want, where you want to place them, and how to form a cohesive design with these choices. We can help with these decisions or–better yet–we can implement your plans for you!

Types of Holiday Lighting

We offer several types of holiday lighting. If you are just looking for simple, elegant strings of lights, the traditional C-9 lights may be your best option. However, if you would like to add other festive shapes, such as snowflakes, candy canes, icicles, holly, and more, Linkables® by Brite Ideas Decorating are a great choice. And don’t forget about your yard! We can create the scene you envision with our lit sculptures. You can mix and match these holiday lights to make a spectacular winter wonderland!

Location, Location, Location

Wherever you want your lights–whether that is along the roofline, on top of the house, in trees, or on the ground–we can make it happen. When planning your lighting layout, it’s important to consider how it will all appear from the street. Smaller ornaments or wreaths may appear cluttered from far away. Most importantly–don’t waste electricity by lighting up areas that no one will ever see.

As you contemplate where to place your lights, consider these areas:

  • In the greenery. Placing lights on trees, bushes, and hedges can create an enchanted, fairyland-like atmosphere. You can also put lights in or around planters or windows boxes, which are often emptier in the winter.
  • On the roofline. Outlining the roof and eaves is a classic holiday lighting technique. In addition to strings of lights, you can also take advantage of the space to display snowflakes, starbursts, or any other shapes that you choose.
  • Lining pathways. The clean lines of driveways and walkways are ideal for illumination. Lighting up your walkways also helps guests navigate safely to your door.
  • On or around architectural features. Framing windows and doors with lights is another common lighting technique. If you have pillars, deck railings, trellises, or posts, wrapping lights around them can transform your home into a wonderland palace.
  • In the yard. The yard is the perfect place to display nativity scenes or other festive sculptures.

You will need to carefully consider where you want to place your lights and what kind of placement fits your home best. Fortunately, we’re here to help!
