With Christmas just around the corner houses up and down the street are breaking out their very best lights and holiday lawn decorations to prepare for the season. Lights are one of the most fundamental and easy to use outdoor decorations of the season, so lets light up the night, Deco & Bloom style, with outdoor lighting options.
Traditional String Lights: There is certainly something to be said for the classic look of traditional Christmas lights hanging from the outside of the house, sparkling invitingly in the snow. Some lights, however, are not rated for the harsh weather that many outdoor lights may have to endure during the cold and rainy winter months. Make sure to always check the packaging for your lights before using them outside, to avoid breaking the lights or even creating a fire hazard. These Clear Mini Christmas Lights from Christmas Lights etc. are an excellent place to start if you are looking for a string with an outdoor rating and good reviews.
C9s: If you are looking for the nostalgia of an era gone by, try these new LED based C9 bulbs from Novelty Lights. Like the enormous C9 bulbs that were so popular in the 70’s and 80’s, these colorful beauties add a little bit of vintage style to your festivities, but lesson the risk of fire that was so popular in the old models.
LED Lights: While not too aesthetically different to traditional Christmas lights, these LED string lights are a great, high efficiency way to cut down on that high electric bill this holiday season. They last far longer than traditional bulbs, so you don’t have to worry about replacing the tiny bulbs as often as with traditional lights.
Solar Lights: These High efficiency solar lights are great if you don’t want to mess around with running extension cords all over your yard, and running up an enormous electric bill this winter. A solar panel collects energy for the lights during the day, and powers your own personal winter wonderland all through the night.
Laser Lights: For a truly spectacular display without the setup time, try a laser light display. This Laser Light Projector can shine a variety of lights onto any surface, is built for outdoors, and is super quick and easy to set up. The laser light displays come in red, green, and blue, and are the perfect way to accent a home where accessibility or mobility might pose difficulties for other holiday lighting choices.
