Retail store owners hoping for a way to boost sales may want to consider something other than mailbox fliers and advertising campaigns. There’s a way to dazzle your customers so they won’t just walk on by. This type of visual merchandising is eye-catching, creative, safe, and a cost-effective marketing tool—LED decorative lights.
LED lights are an eye-catching and innovative way to draw attention to local events. This year, take your events beyond decorating the façade of your business or wrapping the landscaping in rope lights. Those time-honored decorative techniques will still add excitement to your event, but to really make some heads turn—get creative!
History behind Bastille Day
English-speaking countries refer to the French National Holiday as Bastille Day. Annually celebrated just 10 days after our country’s independence holiday, it is formally known as La Fête Nationale among the French. On this day the country recognizes the storming of the Bastille and the beginning of the French Revolution.
People all over the country are emerging from the long winter and venturing outdoors to enjoy the warmer weather. It is time to start thinking about your back yard. Get that rake out and clean up the mess that winter left. Run to the local nursery for new plants and flowers for your garden. Start planning your backyard parties and BBQs with family and friends. It’s a great time to think about ways to make your back yard and patio an oasis you can escape to after a long day.
It’s that joyous time of year. When the snow finally starts to melt. The trees start to bud tiny bits of green. Spring is in the air and that means that brides-to-be everywhere are anxiously counting down the days to their big day. Spring and early summer are the best months for weddings, especially outdoor weddings. The right decorative atmosphere helps to make your outdoor wedding magical and memorable.
If warm weather, birdsong, and a few early buds on the trees haven’t gotten you thinking spring, knowing that Easter is coming should do the trick! Bright, pastel Easter colors are a nice departure from the deep tones of winter. You’ll find these happy shades blooming in Easter dresses and other spring clothing, baskets with artificial straw, jellybeans, candy coatings and seasonal sweet treats, and egg coloring kits. So while you’re preparing for Easter egg hunts, church services, and chocolate overload, it’s great to know you can add bright, safe LED lighting to your decorations—in colors that perfectly match the season.
There are many benefits to using LED for your decorative lighting, and it seems that we’ve written about most of them. However, every so often we learn about a new benefit of using LED lights. I recently read an article in the New York Times about LED lighting. The article seemed to include a lot of information about LEDs that had been discussed in several other articles before. However, the NYT article mentioned that LED lighting does not attract insects, which was news to me. This is because LED lights do not product any ultra-violet light. This feature makes LED Christmas lights perfect for outdoor summer decorating.
