Our “in progress” installation made news in the Hickman County Times!

Here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville we are proud to be able to share the excitement marking the arrival of the holiday season. From homes to historic venues we are entering the “countdown” period when locales all over Middle Tennessee will be “hitting the switch” as holiday lighting brings the magic of the season to life. We have been busy designing and installing holiday lighting for many of the ceremonies scheduled to take place over the coming weeks including the festivities taking place in Historic Centerville, TN!

We want to invite you and your to witness the magic first hand! Mark your calendar for November 29th 5 pm – 8 pm., for the Hickman County Chamber Christmas Open house! Many businesses on the square will be open late for you Christmas shopping and the historic Courthouse has been beautifully lit for Christmas by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives!  The “switch” is set to flip promptly at 6 pm. We designed the display using a mixture of classic C6 and C9 LED bulbs to add an air of nostalgia. The display is also fully operable through a convenient wireless remote control.

Here's a sneek peek at the magic set to unfold in Centerville:

Our own Bob Lyons Sr. goes live on the airways with endless ideas for making this Christmas the merriest!

podcast-logo-Porch Ideas NetworkOutdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville was filling the airwaves last week when our own Bob Lyons Sr. was featured on Porch Ideas Network via podcast with Mary and Dave. The segment featured Christmas Light Decorating Ideas for Your Front Porch and Yard and secrets on creating wonderful holiday light displays and installing outdoor Christmas lights safely.

This informative and fun segment covered every area of holiday lighting, including choosing the colors you like best and desired location of your display. Here’s a peek:

“What you first have to decide is what color you want to use or whether you want to use all white or clear. And then you have to decide whether you want to augment it with different features like starbursts, wreaths, garland, or other holiday decorations.” 

“Then you have to decide if it’s better to concentrate on one area of your yard or porch (and do it really well) or broaden out (and possibly not do as good a job overall).”

The variety of colored LED lighting used in holiday lighting displays was also covered at great length during the segment. In addition, proper spacing of holiday lighting, power requirements, tree wrap holiday lighting and how we combine strings of lights for a cohesive effect were all hot topics!

We can’t divulge ALL our secrets! But you can listen to the full audio program with Bob Lyons Sr. for more lighting tips.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville lights the capital tree in Nashville for the second consecutive year!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville was chosen to light the Nashville Capital Christmas tree for the second consecutive year. Our diligent efforts came to fruition as the Governor, Bill Haslam and his wife, Crissy, kicked off Christmas in the capital with the annual tree lighting ceremony this past Monday.

The tree selected as this year’s Capital Tree is 55-foot Norway Spruce chosen from the Cumberland Forest, where the University of Tennessee uses the roughly 8,000 acres of land for research, due to a storm that hit Nashville a few years ago. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is using over one mile of lights to illuminate this majestic tree via an 80 ft. articulated lift to ensure every light is placed in the perfect spot to shine brightest. We are also topping this beauty with a three-foot jeweled star as the finishing touch.

WBIR-TV out of Eastern Tennessee recently aired a segment outlining the selection of the majestic tree chosen as this year’s annual Christmas conifer. The WBIR article pointed out that up until this year, the state capitol had been using a donated tree.  This year’s  tree was carefully selected from the Cumberland Forest after it was used in a University of Tennessee study on growing Christmas trees on abandoned strip mines where it was planted as part of the study back in 1985.

In 2009, when a windstorm blew over the capitol Christmas tree and urgent help was needed  for a replacement, the Cumberland Forest was there to lend a hand. Upon receiving the news, they immediately began looking around the property and submitted a few pictures of some trees that could serve as a quickly needed replacement.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is busy preparing our local commerical venues for the holiday season

Our trained installers placing the lighted starburst onto the trees which line the entrance to the Mall at Green Hills in honor of the holiday season.

The time is quickly approaching when Nashville residents will be out in full force doing their holiday shopping. Maybe you have already begun gathering the items on your holiday gift list for friends and family this season. While you are out and about during the holiday shopping season have you ever really thought about how the decorations and holiday lighting on display affects you? What would the holidays be like void of any remnant of holiday cheer as you stroll from shop to shop making your selections? The answer to this question is just that, void. Holiday lighting results in visitors that are excited and their ‘sense of place’ is established upon arrival  to a venue and is reinforced inside.

Xmas OLP Nashville  At Green Hills Mall

Another view of the holiday lighting installation at the Mall at Green Hills in Nashville.

According to research, holiday decorations bring in earlier holiday shoppers to stores and keep them shopping longer. This same data showed that spending for 2012 picked up dramatically during the 4th quarter. This is usually the norm for most retail business to accrue a large percentage of their sales during this time. Holiday time is the most fruitful time of the year for many businesses, including restaurants, food and beverage stores and even sporting goods stores, just to name a few of the areas that feel the impact of 4th quarter sales. With all this in mind, now is the time to make sure your holiday lighting display is in order. You don’t want to wait until the last minute.

As the area’s premier commercial holiday lighting firm we are already busy preparing local commercial venues for the holiday season. Our most recent project is providing the Christmas lighting this season for the entrance of the Mall at Green Hills located at Hillsboro Pike right here in Nashville. We are installing 25 lighted starbursts and 120 strands of LED mini lights to the trees that line the entrance to the mall. We cannot wait to photograph evening shots of the trees once the installation is completed, so stay tuned for more to come…

Our holiday outdoor lighting is the stuff that dreams are made of, goose bumps and all!

The gift of light outdoor holiday lighting

Don’t miss out on the magic of outdoor holiday lighting for the upcoming season.

As a child I remember how holiday outdoor lighting would provide me with a larger-than-life-fascination. My family and I would pile into the car on a brisk winter evening to ride from neighborhood to neighborhood looking at the beautiful Christmas lights residents had in their yards. These enchanted rides made me feel as if I were riding through a winter wonderland and gave me many fond memories I still carry with me today. Even though I am now an adult, looking at a beautiful holiday lighting display makes me feel like a kid again, goose bumps and all.

I know that most Nashville homeowners share the same endearment for  outdoor holiday lighting. Being the Nashville areas premier outdoor  lighting company we realize that outdoor holiday lighting is so much more than installing a few strands of holiday lights, it is a means to bringing emotion and joy during the holiday season. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville, our designs are the stuff that dreams are made of. We offer a vast array of colors, themes, and installation techniques that reflect the timeless Christmas lighting of the past to cutting edge holiday lighting designs that make you say WOW!

Nashville TN outdoor Christmas lights lighted trees and garlands

This holiday outdoor lighting display uses elegant lighted strands as well as C9 roofline lighting.

Our classic holiday lighting options include C9 roofline lighting which promote  a subtle, charming effect. The C9 is very economically priced and is very energy-efficient. C9′s come in transparent and opaque as well as many colors to complete your holiday display. Today’s C9′s are also available in the super energy-efficient LED, that cost only pennies to operate but pack a big punch for the money in terms of ambiance and beauty. We also offer a rainbow of lighted LED strings and tree wrap lighting that are easy on the eyes and on the wallet in terms of  operating costs.

Snowfall lighting

The magic of snowfall lighting can be yours this holiday season.

If your taste in outdoor Christmas lighting has you thinking a little more out of the box we also have a wide range of unique holiday lighting elements and techniques we can use to set your holiday display apart from all the rest. These include colored and clear festoon lighting which is as romantic as it is beautiful, and one of our newest holiday tree lighting techniques which is called snowfall lighting. Snowfall lighting, or meteor lighting as it is often called, uses cool LED lights that mimic the look of gently falling snow against a night sky. This technology utilizes the super-efficient LED lights and automatically illuminates at random to create a stunning effect.

holiday OLP garland

We also offer a wide array of lighted wreaths and garland to complete your design.

Our holiday lighting program takes the guesswork out of designing your lighting this year. We design, order, install, remove and store your  holiday display for you and all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the season with the ones you love. No more fighting with tangled icicle lights and teetering off the ladder risking an injury. No more worries of the hazards that over exerted circuits can cause. 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 operate in unison by using lighting control animation that delivers set it and forget it convenience.
