Stroll down any street during the holidays, and you’re sure to be inspired by the wide variety of lighting arrangements you will see. Creating a beautiful light spectacle using your home and landscape as your canvas isn’t as difficult as it may seem – it just takes some vision, planning and lights – plenty of lights. Here are some helpful tips and tricks for outdoor decorating for the holidays:
Color Scheme and Theme
Maybe you have a certain color scheme in mind for the holidays and maybe that vision changes each year. Maybe lights are your favorite means of expressing your Christmas spirit, and you feel a sense of exhilaration when you creatively light up your outdoor artificial Christmas tree varieties. If you’ve found a Christmas tree clearance or Christmas tree sale and want to make your new trees the prime pieces in your light extravaganza, be sure you purchase enough lights to trim each tree or consider a pre-lit Christmas tree, as long as it fits with your overall color scheme. Create a vibrant palette with a broad spectrum of colors, or select a single color such as red, blue or white, and continue plotting your perfect color scheme.
