I was lucky enough to be able to take part in the #KmartHoliday shopping opportunity brought to you by #CBias. Christmas is by far my most favorite holiday and I love using lights inside and out. My task right now is to get my front decorated with lights. We just moved into the house in September and I was already thinking about how I am going to light the big awesome tree. I am a candle addict and light my house up every night with candles and different lighting. I want the warmth of that feeling spread outside as well. I usually am using lighting on trees through out the year. I use the clear bulbs that lets everyone know we are home enjoying our outdoor living.
We headed over to KMart to buy the lights. Aerial, Brandon, my hubby and I. I walked in to the store and was giddy with excitement. After all I was getting $150.00 to do my holiday outdoor lighting. My husband wanted the LED Lights this year. We bought LED for the tree last year but ended up not getting them for the outside because it was just to much money. Not this year, Happy Christmas to me! You can see my shopping experience over at my Google Plus Profile. Check back there for the rest of my decorating. We had to stop for an emergency so I want to show you once everything is up. My husband and son got to work trying to get the large tree lit up.
We had about $20.00 some dollars left so we picked up one of these Lighted Trees to add in the corner on the front porch. We always do lights on top of the house the day after Thanksgiving, this has been a tradition in our home for over 27 years. Saturday is the day we chop down our tree. This will be happening this year without my kids, just hubby and I. It will feel weird but all the kids are busy :-(
The video above is dad and my middle son Justin putting the lights up, this took quite a bit of time and was glad we had the muscles that my son has to hold that pole up. We wrapped each strand around almost the whole tree, we left a bit in the back of the tree uncovered so we would have enough to cover the whole tree. This morning when the rain stops we will get the rest of the house lit up outside so this post will be updated. Stop back and check out the rest of our KMartHoliday Outdoor Lighting Experience.
We used 4 Rolls of the Trim a Home 200 LED Icicle Light Set On A Reel - Multicolor ENERGY STAR for the Tree, you can see in the photo below we could of used five more rolls easily.
My hubby hung the LED C6 Lights quickly because it was cold, we got five boxes that fit along the top of the house.
It's beginning to really look great, when we moved we left a lot of boxes at the old house, many of which were Christmas Boxes so we have zero lights, it really adds up when you are shopping. I went out last night when I got back from my Pay It Forward with Kmart with a tree trimming kit and took a picture.. :-)
