Make your home a magical place for your kids this year.
If you’re anything like us, you want the holiday season to be a wonderful time for your kids.
The colourful lights and snow blanketing the neighbourhood make everything feel a little magical.
For every house that doesn’t join in the festive fun, the magic is a little diminished. So it’s up to you to make your home as bright and whimsical as you can during the season.
The kids are only at that perfect age for holiday wonder for a few years. Make the most of it and really get into the spirit this year with some of the funnest decorating trends.
Colourful lights are back
Elegant white lights took over the holiday season for a long time, but colourful lights started making a comeback over the last 3 years, and they’ll be everywhere this year.
We can install your seasonal lights while you take the kids out for the afternoon. They’ll return to a more magical home!
But colourful doesn’t necessarily mean the classic reds, blues, oranges and greens (although they will certainly be popular this year).
More families are choosing different colours, including:
These different colour combinations still emulate that classic, bright rainbow look, but with a little more subtlety.
Garland running up the bannister or across the fireplace mantle brings that wintery forest feeling inside. It turns your house into something different and special the moment it goes up.
It’s a staple in the movies your kids watch this time of year, so they already associate it with a kind of special feeling.
Spruce up your garland (pun intended) with:
- A string of white LED lights.
- Red bulb decorations.
- Gold beads and stars.
- Pine cones and holly berries.
Hula hoop chandeliers
Give your kids a light show in the bedrooms with something like a hula hoop chandelier.
It’s a pretty easy project to complete yourself (or as a family!), and brings some of that outdoor magic inside.
- Wrap an old hula hoop in lights.
- Yellow or colourful traditional styles work best here.
- Leave some string lights hanging down from the sides, like icicles.
Outdoor Christmas trees!
Outdoor tree decorating can be as flashy or subtle as you like.
Over the last few years, families requested more complete outdoor tree decorations.
- Lit or animated tree toppers.
- Colourful ornaments like bulbs and stars.
- Ground lighting.
Let the kids think Christmas trees grow up from the ground this way!
We can install your outdoor tree lights with timers or remote controllers to make turning them on every night convenient.
Truly special outdoor lighting design.
Mass-produced Christmas scenes and pre-ordered designs are done.
More and more, families want an overall festive design based on the unique features of their home, property and neighbourhood.
Hanging baskets on the front porch with flickering candle-lights, backyard bird baths ringed with spouts of soft turquoise string lights to look like a pouring fountain, and colourful spotlights aimed at privacy bushes for a warmer ambiance.
We can install and automate your entire festive lighting setup so your kids get the full seasonal experience without the Clark Griswold holiday rant if something goes wrong.
Give your kids the most magical experience this winter and turn your house into the perfect winter wonderland.
