Whether you're putting up a tree, a wreath, a mistletoe, red bows, or some reindeers, we can probably agree on the fact that there is one decoration item that we simply can't live without during the Holidays: lights!
Not only are they eye-catching and pretty, but they are useful for other occasions as well and can last for years if you know where to find the good ones.
We finally have a solution for all the dangers and disappointments of Christmas lights, and the answer is LED lights. With a longer life, better lighting quality and a more sturdy construction, there's no way you'll have a string of flickering bulbs again!
LED Montreal, located in Saint-Henri, happens to be the perfect one-stop shop for all your lighting needs. Not only do they have a HUGE variety of products, from LED light bulbs and candles to LED strips and wires, but they also provide expert advice on design and event planning and conception, so even if you aren't entirely sure of what you are looking for, someone will always be there to help you figure out what you need for your project!
And the best part is that they are totally affordable! Starting at only $2, you can easily decorate your bar, kitchen, living room or office with LED lights for a very reasonable price. They will even customize their products for you, so there's no way that you can walk out of there without everything you needed and more.
Here are a few ideas of how you can use LED lights to decorate for the upcoming holidays.
Turn your kitchen into a cozy bar
For me, the holidays equate with dinner parties, and lots of time spent in the kitchen... opening and drinking bottles of wine! The best way to create a cozy atmosphere for the occasion is to add LED strips in your kitchen under or above shelves or counters, creating a nice mood for all of your boozy holiday soirées. They are super easy to install, you can easily cut and connect them for a perfect fit, and they're a great way to save on your electricity bill while bringing colour to your living space!
If you're also into the vintage, industrial-style light bulbs, LED Montreal offers Filament Light Bulbs, which have a lifespan of 25,000 hours!
Make the sickest Christmas tree in the world
This one is especially great for your living or work space. You can really get creative when making a Christmas tree, and there's nothing like cool decorations to lighten the mood and get you into the holiday spirit while working your butt off! You can easily string together LED Montreal's Fairy berry lights and hang on them your tree, and they even glow and fade to produce a twinkly effect! And another VERY cute addition to your tree would be star LED strings, but these can literally go anywhere, even on your outfit!
Make your own adorable lanterns
Fairy LED strings, a Mason jar and some ribbons are all you need to make a super cute lantern, which can go pretty much anywhere! Whether it's on a bookshelf, on every step of your staircase, or even stringed together and hanging from the ceiling, homemade lanterns are sure to impress your guests and bring the warmth that you need to get into the Holiday spirit.
Turn your wall into a star studded sky
With Fairy LED strings, your garlands, wreaths, and even your wall can also take on a magical and festive twist. Why not amp up the romance factor of your bedroom, create your very own stairway to heaven, and revamp your door frames and mirrors - no more blinding yourself when you have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night! - and you can even clip your Christmas cards to the string as there is no fire hazard with LED lights!
Set an incredibly festive feast table
Besides food, why not put lights directly ON the table? LED Montreal has LED candles that will illuminate what you and your guests will be eating, and spark up the conversation! Plus there's way to spill candle wax all over the place when reaching for a scoop of mashed potatoes.
The right kind of lights can really bring the WOW factor you're looking for when decorating for the Holidays, and with LED lights being so affordable, versatile, and durable, you truly can't go wrong!
