There is still time to plan a trip to see some of Nashville’s best holiday lighting!

outdoor holiday lighting by Outdoor Lighting PerspectivesPart of what make the holidays such a magical time of year is, of course, seeing all the houses in and around Nashville all aglow in their holiday splendor! Since many of us are still on holiday from work and school, now is the perfect time to grab the family and head out to see the enchantment of the holiday.

According to a recent article featured in StyleBlueprint some of the most festive residential holiday outdoor lighting displays of the season are closeby in Hillsboro West End (HWEN).  The article lists some of the most admirable displays to add to your “must see” list:

Christmas at the Capitol 2015 Glows Brightly With This Norway Spruce!

We must be doing something quite right at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville because we were asked for the 4th year to in a row to illuminate the Christmas tree at the capitol in downtown Nashville! We were immensely flattered and humbled that Music City had entrusted us with such an immense honor, and we couldn’t wait to make this year another bright one for our hometown of Nashville.

Details about this year’s tree:

This year’s Christmas conifer came to us via Theresa and Jimmy Carter of Old Hickory. They were the proud owners of the Norway Spruce evergreen they planted in 2001 that is now over 30 feet tall. The tree simply got too big for their property so they submitted their desire to the governor’s office to cut the tree down to use for the Nashville Christmas tree lighting celebration. A year later they discovered that their tree was in fact selected to their elation. It was then our job at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville to make sure the Carter tree was lit up in a magical way to show it off in the best possible way and make Nashville proud.

We wrapped red, silver and gold string lights on this year’s tree that added up to miles of illumination. The Norway Spruce was then capped off with a mega sized star. Tanya Tucker rocked the Capitol with her hits and festive Christmas songs; and when the First Lady and Governor Haslam pushed the button the crowd went wild with excitement. The shouts of “WOW!” and “COOL!” are really what make this project so worthwhile for us in the end. Delighting kids and adults alike are what this season is all about for us, and we simply can’t wait to do it all over again next year if the opportunity arises. You can go to Legislative Plaza and check out the Carter Tree and our lighting handiwork for the entire holiday season!

Though the lighting of the Christmas tree at the Capitol is a mega sized project for Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville, we do small projects every day at regular residences and businesses just like yours and ours. Not everything is always on such a grand scale, and we are happy to do fabulous job on a budget that fits your needs and lifestyle. We treat every single project we do with the same enthusiasm, energy and level of professionalism. We work on projects all year long and not just in warm weather, so if you need a brand new outdoor lighting system or an addition to your current landscape lighting scheme—we are eager to talk to you about your ideas.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville chosen to light the tree for Christmas at the Capitol for 4th consecutive year!

2015 Nashville capital tree is on the way

The excitement is mounting!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is honored and proud to have been chosen to light the Tennessee state capitol Christmas tree this year! This will mark our 4th consecutive year in lighting the tree. This year’s tree and celebratory “tree lighting” in the capitol promises just as much magic and family fun as year’s past. Being involved in-depth with the festivities, we do not want to  convey any “spoilers” for the event, but thus far the plans are to feature ornaments along with lights in colors of gold, silver and red.This year’s Christmas tree came from James and Theresa Carter in Madison. It is a Norwood Spruce weighing 1,700 pounds and is 27′ wide & about 30′ feet high.

The annual tree lighting event is scheduled to take place Monday, November 30th, from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm CST. Governor Bill Haslam and his wife will be flipping the switch marking the beginning of TN holiday season in the capitol. The tree is located at the TN State Capitol at 600 Charlotte Ave., in beautiful Nashville, TN.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville hopes you and your family can attend this extraordinary event. To help get you in the spirit, here is a look back into the archives at the previous Christmas tree’s we have been proud to light at the capitol:

  • 2014 — Last year’s capitol  tree was adorned in over one mile of lights to illuminate this majestic tree via an 80 ft. articulated lift to ensure every light was placed in the perfect spot to shine brightest. We also topped off this beauty with a three-foot jeweled star as the finishing touch. 2014’s tree was a 55-foot Norway Spruce chosen from the Cumberland Forest, where the University of Tennessee uses roughly 8,000 acres of land for research.

  • 2013 — We chose a classic theme of red and gold for the 2013 capitol tree.

  • 2012 — The 2012 capitol tree was a majestic 30-foot Norway spruce moved to Nashville from state-owned land located in Arrington. We made sure the tree shone in its holiday best filled with over 6,000 LED lights and festive ornaments courtesy of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville.

Centerville, TN, to be the center of attention for the holidays, thanks to a little help from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville

We love the holiday spirit that is in the air!

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

Centerville, TN, town square holiday lighting 2014.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is proud to share the excitement in and around the Nashville region that marks 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 “flipping 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 holiday ceremonies scheduled to take place over the coming weeks including the festivities taking place in Historic Centerville, TN.

2015 marks our 2nd consecutive year in providing the holiday outdoor lighting at the Centerville, TN, town square. Our design this year is very similar to the display we installed at last year’s event, including a mixture of classic C6 and C9 LED bulbs for nostalgia. We do have a few surprises in store for this year, but we can’t give away any spoilers just yet! The display will also be fully operable through a convenient wireless remote control.

Don’t miss the Christmas Open House at the Centerville Town Square!

Saturday, November 28th from 5-9 pm is when all the magic will happen including a live nativity scene, story telling, horse-drawn carriage rides, a children’s coat drive, music and of course Santa will be there too! Many local businesses on the square will be open late for you Christmas shopping with the courthouse lighting on schedule for 6:00 sharp!
