Exterior Illuminations – that’s Christmas lights to you and me…

| 1 Comment

One of my favourite things about this time of year is driving around in the evenings and spotting all the houses who are celebrating the Christmas season with an abundance of fairy lights! My brother is the king of ‘exterior illuminations’ as he calls it; ever seen the film Deck The Halls? – yep, that’s him! 😉 He tells me that one day he’ll have led lights built into the window frames of his house! I think he’s aiming for something like these displays from ChristmasDecor.net who install amazing illuminations – follow them on Twitter @XmasDecorNepa:

I think it’s great when people make an effort to decorate the outside of their homes – it gives the impression of a happy, jolly family inside and makes the home look welcoming. As outdoor lights are pretty pricey, I only have a few twinkling lights outside my home, but I’ve made the effort to make my doorway and porch look pretty with warm white lights (from Dunelm Mill) wrapped around an artificial garland with pretty vintage roses tied on. I have also put cheaper indoor fairy lights around the inside of my windows – giving a matching warm white glow.

A small strand of flashing rainbow-coloured lights on our hydrangea bush completes my lights display and makes me happy when I’m driving down the driveway towards my festive home in the evening! Let me know if you like to decorate your house for Christmas – and send me a photo if you see any amazing christmas displays on your travels!

PS: How amazing is this lighthouse decorated by ChristmasDecor.net – simply amazing!
