There’s no better way to get in the Christmas spirit than by decorating your home with sparkly, glistening Christmas lights. From twinkling fairy lights, to a light up Santa Clause and fibrotic ornaments, making the outside of your home look fabulous in time for Christmas is just as exciting as decorating the indoors.
Start by putting on a Christmas cd or a Christmas movie on the TV and enjoy the afternoon making everything look pretty. You should even treat yourself and have a cheeky Christmas inspired hot chocolate whilst you untangle all the lights.
Outside lights really let everyone know that you’re in the festive spirit. Often it can be a bit of a competition in some neighbourhoods as to who has the best Christmas lights, so it’s essential to make sure your display looks the best. It’s not really a competition, of course it’s about having Christmas cheer, but a strand of lights wrapped around a bush doesn’t always cut it.
What type of lights is best?
Icicle, flashing or colour changing? Picking the right lights can be hard. Creating magical displays for children (and adults too) is all the range so go with whatever style first catches your eye. The outdoor lights from Lighting Styles are amazing with some awesome and individual LED outdoor displays that are sure to get the neighbours talking. Why not pop a baby light up polar bear on the doorstep or place some light up deer’s in the garden for a little something different.
If you do prefer something less flashy and want more traditional exterior lights, you can still spread a little Christmas cheer by making them look really impressive. Well placed icicle style lights always look really nice around the eves of a house and a classic light up wreath on the door keeps it classy. If all else fails, a small tree on the step with a few lights around it always looks great and very welcoming.
For those of you who do want to be a bit more adventurous, experimenting with colourful lights is so fun and really brightens up your home. Christmas lights can bring others happiness too with so many different colours and styles to choose from an eclectic mix can bring a lot of joy to passers-by.
Whichever way you want to adorn your home with gorgeous twinkling lights be sure to make sure you’ve decorated safely whilst being as magical as possible this Christmas.
