I love the holiday season and always go all out celebrating it. Honestly, our holiday decorations go up Thanksgiving weekend and decorating with lights and greenery is one of my favorite traditions! But like most people, I want to make it as simple as possible while still getting some seriously bright bling going on. That’s why I’m so excited to partner with our sponsor, EZ-Illuminations Super Sparkle lights and EZ-Illuminations LED Flame Bulbs.
We recently replaced most of the shrubs across the front of our house and I was kind of dreading having to string lights all over them. When I received my box of products from EZ-Illuminations, I was excited to find boxes of net lights. These made putting lights on our new shrubs SO much easier. I kicked myself for not having tried net lights years ago. I love that the wires are green and completely blend in with the shrubs during the day so that you can hardly see them.
Once we saw how easy lighting up the shrubs went, we were excited to add more bling to the outside of the house. We found an old small tree in a stand that had burned out years ago and added a string of EZ-Illuminations lights to it and placed it on the front step. I loved it!!
We added lights to the wreath we hang on the house every year and it instantly added some much needed oomph to it. The wreath had always looked nice during the day but disappeared at night. The lights brought it to life once the sun went down.
We added a garland to the lamppost and used two strings of lights there to ensure that it really sparkled. The EZ-Illuminations Super Sparkle lights really do sparkle. Because they are LED, the light is bright and true and the sparkle effect means that different bulbs are lighting up every second. A much different effect than typical “blinking” lights.
One of my favorite new additions to our outside decor is the EZ-Illuminations LED Flame Bulbs. These bulbs are amazing – they have a yellow/orange glow that pulses and flickers and looks like real flames. They cast a warm glow and really mimic the looks of fire – without the obvious hazards. We put them in our garage sconces, the front porch light and the lamppost. I’ll probably be breaking these out to use at Halloween next year too! I’m also planning to grab a few more and use them inside as well. I love the subtle, soft look!
You might think you’d have to special order these lights – they are that special. But you’ll be surprised to hear that you can grab them at your local Walmart! So not only are you saving money by using energy-saving LED lights, you’re able to save a trip by grabbing them at Walmart when you’re already doing your shopping!
