It's the most wonderful time of the year, or so the famous song goes…but we're willing to bet that you can make it even BETTER if you give some thought to your lighting.
Here are a few of our tried and true holiday lighting tips that are sure to make your parties and family get-togethers even merrier.
- Plug in your light strings before you begin decorating. Testing them first is a smart strategy because having to unstring most of your handiwork to replace a burned out bulb will not leave you feeling joyful.
- Do a dry run. A night or so before the big party, walk through the house and see if the lighting poses any issues. Venture outside as well, checking for any hazards your guests might encounter on their way to your front door. Replace burned out lamps and make sure that pathways are illumi
nated. (Check out some other exterior lighting strategies here.)
