Tips for Last-Minute Holiday Lighting

This year marks one of the shortest time periods between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Just about three weeks separate the two holidays.

Traditionalists who choose to hold off on decorating for Christmas may be caught off guard by the short turnaround this year.  Here are some tips for last-minute holiday lighting from local outdoor decorating professional, Christmas Decor by Arvidson.

Keep Holiday Lighting Displays Simple

You’ll enjoy maximum impact and less stress when you keep it simple.

The key to creating a glowing holiday look is to focus on creating maximum impact with minimal effort.

It’s tempting to buy the latest looks. Yet, once you go through the lights and decorations you already own, you may discover you already have everything you need to make your home feel warm and welcoming this holiday season.


Find Your Decor Focal Point

Stand back and take a look at your home from a neighbor’s or visitor’s point of view.

Is your front porch a stand-out feature, or is your front door the star of the show? Is there a perfect line of shrubs or a nicely-shaped tree along the path that welcomes guests?

Identify your home’s most attractive features and dress them for the holidays with garland, greenery, and lights.


Complete the Look

If you have time, look for ways to enhance other areas of your yard and home to compliment your focal point design.

Simply outlining windows or roof lines can extend the holiday glow across your home, and subtle hints of color can add interest and depth to your plan.

Keep your Decor Simple

Reduce your stress and improve your results by keeping your outdoor holiday display simple and classic. Too many themes and colors detract from your focal point and confuse the overall impression. A clean, uncluttered display is more attractive, safer, and more cost-effective.


Still Too Stressful?
