Christmas in July: The Holiday Lighting How-to

Share This Post

We may be in the thick of the dog days of summer, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look forward to the most wonderful time of the year. Yes, we’re planting the seed to get ready for the holidays, because a little planning goes a long way when it comes to your holiday décor—namely, your holiday lights installation.

How can you rock your holiday decoration game? Well, let’s take a look at some of the ways you can have the best residential and commercial holiday lights in Northern Colorado!

Start with a Theme

One of the keys to creating a truly stunning light installation is to build it around a theme. Whether you build your idea around a color palette, landscape style, or even a pop culture reference, this will help pull together a beautiful look. Following trends is a great way to make an impression in your neighborhood or business district. While you don’t have to replace your lights and décor year after year, you can find new ways to use what you’ve got and add some new touches here and there for the years to come.

Consider Energy-Efficient Holiday Lights

The cost of running your holiday lights should also be considered. LED lights are designed to be very bright while not consuming as much energy as the older style of bulb lights. LED lights come in just about every style you can imagine, and you have your pick of colors, animations, and other special effects. While they may be a higher upfront investment, over the years, you will find that they use very little energy and they last much longer than traditional bulbs.

Go Beyond Holiday Lights In Northern Colorado

Lights show up at night to create an eye-catching show, but during the daytime, they’re not quite as likely to show up. Your holiday spirit should show 24/7, and that is where greenery, wreaths, reindeer, and other decorating elements come in. Place a wreath on exterior doors, drape garlands over fences, and flank your entryway with gorgeous holiday arrangements. When lights are added by our Christmas light installation team to these daytime-friendly elements, they’ll be illuminated even in the dark of night.

Ease of Installation for Holiday Lights

Now that you’re in the holiday spirit, we’re going to toss in a dash of practicality. Putting up and taking down your holiday decorations requires some level of acrobatics (or, at least, we like to think we’re pretty acrobatic when we’re doing it!). Typically, you’ll have to get up on a ladder to reach your eaves, trees, tops of doors, and other hard-to-reach places. If you’re not particularly acrobatic or steady, you might want to consider having our Christmas light installation experts in Fort Collins, Boulder, Greeley, and surrounding areas help you out. And then, of course, there’s the consideration of how much time you actually have to create a more elaborate installation. Err on the side of realistic expectations, or you might find that you just don’t have time to make it all happen…or worse, a fine from your HOA.
