For most of us, the image of the star has played a role of great significance in our lives. From “wishing on a star” as a child, to fond memories of reciting “twinkle, twinkle little star” with our preschool friends. The symbol of the star can mean many things including a love for nature, power, light and healing. For many people the star serves as a symbol of their religious beliefs, including the star of David and the star of Bethlehem. For whatever reason the star holds a special place in your heart, the star itself is a beloved icon of the holidays and is a common theme in outdoor holiday lights. In this story we focus on using the shape and significance of the star in holiday outdoor lighting design. This is part one of a two part series on unique holiday lighting design choices that are sure to turn heads.
Up until just the last decade or so, Christmas lighting was basic in it’s design limitations. In essence you had two choices, plain strings of lights in white or clear, or multi-color plain strings lights. This is certainly not the case nowadays. Today’s outdoor holiday lighting includes all sorts of colors, shapes and sizes to choose from.
As for the star theme, our star lighting elements include lighted wreaths designed in the shape of a star. These can be used singularly or in multiples across your homes facade or another prime location of interest as part of your Christmas lighting display. Star shaped roofline lighting can add whimsy and charm to your home’s distinct curves and lines, along with other unique holiday lighting elements that serve as the “haute couture” in outdoor holiday lighting designs.
One of these unique pieces is our LED lighted starburst stakes. These lighted startbursts offer you a new take on the traditional star. Adding one of these unique lighted stakes can make a statement, and when used in multiples to line a walkway or path they are simply breathtaking. We also have a wide array of stand up one-dimensional and three-dimensional lighted yard displays that also feature the star as the center of the theme.
