Celebrate New Year’s Eve with These Illuminating Tips

December 25, 2021

The year 2021 will shortly be behind us. We are approaching the promise of a new year and of new beginnings. Many people will be enjoying New Year’s Eve right from home. Whether you’re toasting with a few intimate friends or simply celebrating with your family, there’s a lot you can do to make the evening special. Here’s a few decorating ideas to inspire a memorable New Year’s Eve from the comfort of home.

Bright leaf branch solar lighted trees light up your landscape with a soft glow and whimsical presence.

These illuminated small trees range in color from gold, blue, purple, and more. With over 50 LED bulbs and adjustable branches, these bright solar trees look stunning just about anywhere. Place them along your entryway, walkway, garden, patio, etc., for a beautiful effect.

Nothing makes your patio feel cozier and more festive than Solar Powered Lanterns with flickering flames.

Add illuminated charm to your patio, entryway, gazebo, or outdoor tabletop with solar lanterns. They also look great on shepherd hooks. Decorative solar lanterns are versatile with a variety of styles from contemporary to vintage. Some are crafted with intricate metal designs displaying lovely shadow patterns, and others are rustic invoking old-world charm. Entirely solar powered, no wiring is necessary, saving both energy and money.

Create a magical backdrop for your New Year’s outdoor gathering with LED Fairy Curtain Lights.

Providing brilliant soft light and color, curtain lights look beautiful hanging from your gazebo, porch or covered deck, outdoor bar, and across archways. Quality outdoor curtain lights are waterproof, dimmable, remote controlled, and feature a combination of light-show settings. Curtain lights can be used all year round after the holiday season, making them a versatile design choice.

The radiance of Floating Pond and Pool Lights offer a wonderful and relaxed atmosphere.

These solar powered light accents provide beautiful illuminations at night in and around your pool, pond, or fountain. Install them to create a decorative setting for all your holiday gatherings and all year round. Choose from floating lanterns, orbs, lotus flowers, illuminated discs, and more! Using LED lights combined with natural power, floating lights can last 8 hours after fully charging in direct sunlight. If you’re looking for an imaginative way to add some festive flair to your outdoor space, floating pond lights are a great choice.

Moon Lighting, achieved by mounting down lights high in nearby trees, gives the effect of the natural silvery glow of moonlight.

Moon lighting is a beautiful way to enjoy your landscape no matter the vantage point. To attain a realistic feeling of moonlight, you can use a blue tinted filter to manipulate the effect. For the best result, fixtures should be mounted above the lowest branches of the tree creating soft shadows on the ground. Experts recommend mounting 30-40 feet or higher to get the most natural look and to keep the fixtures hidden from view. Not only does moonlighting create amazing ambiance for your patio and other hardscapes, but it’s useful for providing visibility for your midnight swims and for eliminating dark spots for your late-night gatherings.
