We’ve all seen it – the corner bistro with the old-fashioned looking lights that make it look just that much more romantic. Those romantic lights are actually C9 holiday lights that were likely installed in December and left up all year because of the romantic appeal and ambiance. These C9 lights have successfully graduated from a holiday delight to a year-round draw. This particular bistro uses romantic LED C9 lights to stand out just enough to get noticed at night and to be enticing enough to let customers know they will get a place that seeks to provide great ambiance for its patrons.
There are other “holiday lights” that are graduating to mainstream and year round and these are LED mini lights. Often in white, mini lights are the ones that generally wrap just tree trunks and large limbs as you see in the picture to the left. You can tell from the bright blue sky and lack of snow on the ground that it’s far from winter and this Dean & Deluca mini mall has its focal trees dressed in what used to be considered “just holiday lights”.
There are a couple great benefits that come with these lights graduating from seasonal to year round. Have you ever heard someone say “if I could just bottle that”? Think about the feeling you get when, in the dead of summer, you walk into a Christmas store at the beach or at your favorite mountain retreat? The minute you see the lights, smell the pink or cinnamon candles, or hear the music, your heart swells with the peaceful and magical feeling that Christmas brings. We’re guessing that although your towels are in the back seat, it’s likely you will leave with an ornament resembling your pooch or with your family member’s name on it.
With C9’s and mini lights, you truly can “just bottle that”. Many of our commercial customers are not only asking to leave their lights up year round, other small businesses and commercial establishments are calling to purchase these lights for their store fronts, shopping centers, restaurants and trees. Further, they’re not just good for outside or the front. Homeowners are considering hanging lights to line some of their backyard spaces. In addition to patio lighting for outdoor eating, restaurant owners are looking for more romantic lighting to set the mood for their outdoor eating areas.
