Tree branches and trunks wrapped in festive lights.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville creates this stunning effect by wrapping the tree's branches and trunks in festive lights.

Even though the winter weather outside may be frightful, the holiday lights we are beginning to see around town are so delightful. In towns and suburbs all around the country the Christmas rush is on. This includes designing and installing your residential and commercial holiday lighting display in time for the upcoming holiday. Outdoor holiday lighting is an important element of decorating for Christmas. A well decorated home or business is not complete without beautiful Christmas lights. In order to create a cohesive theme or mood  for the holidays it’s important to include outdoor Christmas decorations in the scenario, and the most effective and enchanting way to do this is by adding outdoor Christmas lighting. One facet of outdoor holiday lighting is to decorate select trees within your lawn and landscape to reflect the beauty and spirit of Christmas.

The origins of the lighted Christmas tree trace back to the 17th century and in 1882 electric lighting was introduced as a viable way to illuminate the interior Xmas tree. The same traditions that make lighting and decorating your interior Christmas tree can carry out to lighting exterior trees for the holidays as well.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville has been breathing the magic of the holidays into trees all over the Nashville area for over 20 years. One of the most enchanting lighting elements used in  our exterior Christmas tree lighting is called tree wrapping. Wrapping exterior trees with holiday lights adds class and refinement to your landscape during the season and can also create a focal point of interest to your holiday lighting design.

The key to a well-wrapped exterior Christmas tree is based on the same theory used to expertly wrap a holiday gift to place under your tree for the holidays. Careful and even placement of lights, making certain to leave no gaps, or empty spots is crucial in creating the desired effect. In certain circumstances we have  even employed the assistance of a crane to make sure each and every light is wrapped  in perfect precision around the trunk and branches of the tree which you are illuminating.

Outdoor holiday tree lighting such as tree wrapping can be used in a variety of presentations. One way to create a dramatic impact is to wrap multiple trees along linear areas of your landscape such as a fence line, or driveway border. The effect of multiple wrapped trees illuminated in perfect unison can result in an enchanting “winter wonderland” effect that will make your guests feel like a kid again. Choosing a single conifer candidate to wrap with lights can also result in a breathtaking effect in your landscape as well. One beautifully lit tree can become the star in your outdoor lighting design, because even with outdoor holiday lighting, less is sometimes more.

Can you imagine the memories a Christmas lighting display like this will create?

We are quickly approaching the time of year when our thoughts turn to the smell of home-baked goodies, busy shoppers running to and fro with presents adorned with ribbons of red and green, and the way seeing a beautifully lit Christmas lighting display makes us feel inside. I remember as a child my parents would pile all of us in the car right after Thanksgiving and we would set out in search of neighborhoods with mesmerizing and memorable holiday lighting displays. This memory still brings a smile to my face when I remember seeing those lights for the first time each year from the eyes of a child, the clarity of this memory is unforgettable and still makes me feel happy to reminisce.

This memory, this moment in time is what homeowners wish to achieve when they set out each year to create an outdoor lighting display of their own. The problem with this is that many times what the homeowner visualizes and what actually comes to fruition are two different things. This can be because of time constraints, lack of design knowledge or just simply because they don’t know where to begin. That is where we come into play…

A few outdoor lights on a string will not create a memorable holiday lighting display, but we can. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville offers a holiday lighting program that will take the guess-work out of designing your Christmas outdoor lights this year. We design, order, install, remove and store your Christmas lighting display for you and all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the season with the ones you love.

No more rituals of turning on the lights one strand at a time. With our holiday lighting program we can also program your indoor and outdoor lighting displays to come on and off in unison by using lighting control animation that offers set it and forget it convenience.

Christmas Lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives

Christmas Lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives

Believe it or not, just this week I talked with our first customer of the year about our holiday lighting program. She had a horrible experience last year with her holiday lighting display. She went with one of our competitors and was very dissatisfied in the quality and the fact that she had to “rent” the display, rather than own it. She was impressed with our program because our customers actually own their holiday lighting display. We discussed wreaths and bows and even decided to add a wreath to each of her home’s dormers and lighted bows at the front of the driveway. We both left the conversation with excitement and anticipation of the holiday cheer that will be present here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville in the weeks to come. If you aren’t familiar with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville’s holiday outdoor lighting program, here is how it works in a nutshell.

We come out and meet with you to decide on what you want your holiday lighting display to look like. We have a vast portfolio  and years of outdoor lighting experience, therefore we can help you if you are undecided about certain things. We then proceed to order the lights you need to complete a stunning holiday display. We assemble the display for you prior to the holidays.Then after the holidays are over, we dis-assemble the lighting display and store it for you in our temperature controlled warehouses in anticipation of the next holiday season. With our method, it is not only a professionally executed display, you also own the lights and this leaves plenty of room to add-on as you see fit from year to year.

Right now we are offering a discount on new clients and current clients that order additional lighting products that sign on with us and have the lighting installed before Halloween. This may seem early, but actually setting up your display by late October is prime time, plus you get the added luxury of having the capability to light the display on Halloween night creating an ultra-safe scenario for the neighborhood trick-or-treaters. Who knows, maybe you can add some holiday cheer to the neighborhood on a night fit for ghouls and goblins! We use a great deal of C9′s in our displays when the customer prefers this. This light is very big for a couple of reasons. Because of their beauty, they lend a classic and traditional touch to any lighting display and they are LED so this means they are easy on the pocketbook as they are on the eye.

One really great opportunity to take advantage of is by booking early in order to start your installation by mid-October. We can install these lights in the trees (called wraps). Then we can get the lighting done and have you powered-up right after Thanksgiving in time to start the holiday off right. Your lighting system will come complete with a timer that you can set to literally light up at 12:01 AM on the day after Thanksgiving. (Black Friday could turn into bright Friday at your house).

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville not only has the advantage in the beauty and elegance it pours into its holiday lighting displays, we also offer a competitive edge. Your lights are yours from year to year. They are ordered new. They are not a rental and you have the capability to add-on at your own pace and taste. When the lights are rentals, they are previously used and you have no way of knowing how old they are, or how safe.

Candy cane LED lights

Candy cane LED lights

Candy canes are synonymous with Christmas. Even though I don’t even really like candy canes, I can’t help but at least buy one box each Christmas. If you’re looking for candy canes these days, you can find just about anything. They have ultra tiny canes, ultra huge canes, the traditional red canes, and every color you can imagine.

We have a great line of candy cane lights for Christmas. At this point, we wouldn’t have time to install more in time for this year’s Christmas but I wanted to show you some of the more popular ones. Perhaps if I installed these at my house next Christmas, I wouldn’t feel the need to buy that box of candy canes each year.

Our line has candy canes lights for decorating the outside of your house as well as LED candy cane lights for your yard. Take a look at this whimsical theme using all LED lights.

Even the dormers have a couple of candy cane lights on them.

As I said, it’s late for installing holiday lights this season but next season give us a ring early to install your lights. We have so many different themes in addition to this theme. Our program includes installation as well as take-down and storage of your lights. You get the best and most interesting and unique product on the market and you don’t have to do any work.

Going into 2010, count on us for all your traditional outdoor lighting needs. We design and install outdoor architectural lighting and outdoor landscape lighting. Our lights come in low voltage or LED or a combination of both.

Outdoor lighting is all we do. We’ve been doing outdoor lighting for the greater Nashville market for over 20 years. Give us a ring for a free design consultation for your home.

What would you say if I told you these 3 things?

  1. Do not go up to your attic for boxes of outdoor Christmas decorations
  2. Burn your ladder
  3. Under no circumstances will you ever again have to buy a replacement bulb

You probably wouldn’t believe me unless you saw a genie bottle in my hand. Well, I can’t promise this for your indoor Christmas decorations but I can absolutely promise it for your Outdoor Christmas decorating.

LED Outdoor Christmas lights, Nashville

LED Outdoor Christmas lights, Nashville

Our Christmas Lighting package really does cover absolutely everything for your outdoor holiday lighting and decorations.

We order.

We install.

We service.

We take down.

We store.

We bring it back to you next year.

You honestly don’t have to do a thing. Now you’re probably wondering how we can promise that you’ll never again have to purchase a replacement bulb? Where there are 2 reasons. First, all of our outdoor lighting products are LED. LED bulbs are not only energy efficient but the bulbs last 30,000 – 50,000 hours. And if for some strange reason a bulb did go out, you call us and we come out just to fix that bulb.

I just got done celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday with my family. The hostess always spends all her time cooking that she barely gets to enjoy the celebration. Allow us to do your outdoor lighting so you have that time to spend with your family.

Give us a ring right away so we can come out and install your holiday lighting.

I can’t believe 2010 is almost over. I guess that’s OK because I’m still having trouble feeling comfortable writing the date with just /10 at the end of it. It feels like something is missing without the familiar zero before the final number.

But, honestly, I’m not ready for this year to end. The Christmas carols have just started playing in the stores and I haven’t bought one single gift yet. The good news is I’m thinking about this when I still have more than a month to go.

So, I figure out the big things that I have to start planning now:

  1. Make sure I get a great gift for my Mom
  2. Plan the Christmas decorations

These are the top two on my November list. Number one on the list is verrrrry important because as they say down south “If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy”. But, in all seriousness, I do love to put a lot of thought into my Mother’s gift since her gifts are always so thoughtful.

Christmas lights in large tree

The Christmas decorations are in the category of bigger Christmas items because they take time for planning and because their D-date is 11/26 which is only 9 days away. So, it may be of no surprise that I’m going to install our new holiday lighting line in my yard this year. I have quite a few big trees so I’m going to wrap those trees with the LED string lights. I’m also going to use C9′s across my roof line and probably install some lighted garland around the front door. That way it looks nice when you enter the yard, when you drive by my house and when you walk in the door.

Would you believe I even have to squeeze in time with the installers? They’re really busy during the holiday times but are making time for every single Christmas outdoor lighting installation.
