Christmas Direct? So…what do you do for the rest of the year then?
I think this is a question most of us who work here have been asked. And, It makes sense, I mean we quite literally have the word ‘Christmas’ in our name. Which last we checked, was only celebrated in December (although Christmas all year round does sound like a good idea too).
But here at Christmas Direct, we are all firm believers that string lights are NOT just for Christmas, these lights can be used throughout the year; in your home and garden or at events and parties, so these are what we concentrate on more through the rest of the year.
Even if our focus was solely on Christmas, this still takes a lot of planning as well, we even started planning for Christmas 2022 before Christmas 2021 was over!
Making use of your string lights throughout the year
Illuminating your garden with string lights is becoming more and more popular every year, chances are by now you’ll have seen gardens lit up by gorgeous LEDs whether it be your neighbours back garden, or photos on social media.
From simple strings to fabulous festoons it really is easy to brighten up your garden this summer and create a tranquil space to spend the summer evenings (or just gaze out at in awe of your stunning string light set up!).
Why not check out our recent blog post Festoon Lights Buying Guide for inspiration as well as our best hints and tips on decorating your space throughout the year with Festoon Lights.
Christmas also isn’t the only seasonal event, each year we see more and more people choosing to decorate for the other events we celebrate throughout the year. From Valentines day to Halloween, we have lights for any occasion. This year we even brought in new Festoons inspired by the Queens Platinum Jubilee!
Hopefully this explains a bit more about what we do throughout the year – just as Santa’s elves are hard at work all year round, so are the Christmas Direct team.
