November 18, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I'm looking for holiday decorating ideas. I was thinking a big, spotlit wreath above garage. What else? First year here, and I'm having a hard time figuring out what to do. Thanks in advance!

I think the wreath over the garage door is an excellent idea. Possibly suspend something in the curved entryway, like a lit star. (Would need to be secured on the top, left, and right sides) As long as it's not cheap and tacky, it would probably look nice. Lights over to the shrubbery. I personally only like when the lights are one color. Or vintage looking multi-colored larger bulbs. I really don't like anything that has to be inflated, I don't know why giant balloon Santas and snowmen ever caught on. I'm not saying you would ever put a parade float in your front lawn, I'm just getting that off my shoulder.

A Moravian star hanging in the entry. Fairy lights on the tree to the right.

Love the idea of a star! Thank you. Terry, I'm right with you on the lights and inflatables. I love the warm glow of white lights. The LED ones seem to have cooler color, but maybe some are warmer white? Thanks, again!

We offer warm white LED Christmas lights. You could do icicle lights on the roofline to accent those areas too.

LED lights framing the house on the eves. Huge draping swag or round wreath over the garage with lights (please)Possibly even both?. Net lights over the bushes. I too prefer one color, but you could certainly get away with multi colored lights with the colors on your home. I love the idea of draping string lights on the tree. Twist around the base of the tree then lift them up and drape to catch the upper limbs. Would really balance the house lighting at night. Do post follow up pics! I'm sure you'll be so pleased with the results of whatever you try out. Good luck
