Party lights - more than just festoons

It’s coming to that time of year again - chestnuts roasting on the fire; a glass of milk left out for our red-clad hero; St Nick himself flying over your street with a sleigh full of presents. But wait; what’s that! He can’t find your house? You have absolutely no festoons, fairy or rope lights illuminating your garden or house exterior, lighting up the bearded-man’s way? Well that simply cannot be! Christmas will be ruined..!

Okay, okay, so we know that Santa doesn’t really exist and this whole scenario is entirely unrealistic, but wouldn’t it be nice to have a completely festive Christmas where the outside of your house matches the inside? Where the warm and welcoming cosiness of your interior spaces spills outside, inviting friends and family to spend some time in the fresh air rather than falling asleep in the armchair? If your answer is yes, then take a look at our selection of party lights below.

Festive Festoons

Fun without being gaudy, the 20 Light Exterior Festoon gives you the freedom to create Yuletide-inspired colour themes or inject a riot of multi-colours into your garden, patio or decking areas. These outdoor lights are completely rain and weatherproof thanks to an IP Rating of 54. Easy to install, changing the bulb-colour on these lights is easy - choose red, green and white for christmas, then swap to yellow and blue when the spring comes - easy! There is also the option of the 20 LED Festoon Party Lights. Multi Coloured for a brighter, crisper light that lasts longer. These are low voltage, so suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The multi-coloured, white or warm white option means you can create the perfect festive atmosphere for you and your family.

Well if you believe in Santa

You must believe in fairies and we all know that fairies are great for creating sparkle and light. Our range of fairy lights here at Lighting Direct are no exception. Lighting up your Christmas tree, living-room or window-frames is easy with the 240 LED Low Voltage Multi Action LED Line Lights. Multi Coloured. Their low voltage makes them entirely safe to keep on for long periods, while the array of different colour options means you can create a theme or get them to fit in with the one that already exists in your home. There is also a range of illumination effects from ‘chasing flash’ to ‘slo glo’ meaning you can set them to flash to get the party started and ‘slo glo’ when it’s time to wind down.

Play ‘Connect’ this Christmas

For a really easy to way to light up your Christmas holidays, take a look at the 100 Low Voltage Multi Action LED Add-A-Long Connectable Line Lights. These simply stylish and easy-to-use lights give you the option of continuing the theme from inside to outside; they are as comfortable hanging from the pergola as they are wrapped around the bannisters. They are really easy to connect with other sets - you can connect up to ten sets from one power pack, which give you a whopping thousand LEDs. They are also fully remote controllable, so when the party’s got a bit too much and you want to nod off, simply set them to ‘slow fade’ and watch your guests do just that.

Sun-worshipping Fairy Lights - at Christmas?!

You might think that solar-powered lighting sounds like a crazy idea in this country - especially at the end of December, but these amazing Everbright Solar Fairy Lights - Warm White - 300 LED offer a really low-cost and beautiful way to light up that outdoor winter party. They are powered by a solar panel that can sit discreetly away from the lights (no direct sunlight needed, just daylight!). These solar-powered LEDs are perfect for the party house as they just keep going and going.

Walking in a winter wonderland

If you’re creating a beautiful wintry party space outside this Christmas, we have just the outdoor lights for you from LED Planters to an Led Wall Washer Kit. Getting stuck inside on Christmas Day can get a bit staid and boring, so why not lure your guests outside with some beautiful homely lighting that will have them standing by the garden heater and reaching for the eggnog in no time.

Why not create a ‘lounge’ in your garden, complete with a squashy couch, blankets and the Lucca Exterior Floor Light -Black. This genius outdoor garden light is based on the traditional indoor floor lamp design, but can withstand outdoor weather conditions and has a concrete base and ground spike that makes it more than capable for any exterior floor surface. Watch your guests relax and have fun, completely forgetting that they’re sitting outside in the garden in December.
