To keep it aesthetically pleasing, it’s better to choose either cool or warm white lights for simplicity. If you’re looking to put lights in sync with music or compliment your giant Santa Claus and reindeer lawn decorations, feel free to get creative with color.


How bright you want the bulbs to shine depends on the ideal ambiance for your outdoor lighting scheme. Faceted bulbs can offer brighter light, as they break up and scatter the direct beam of light emitted from an LED. Consequently, LED lights can also offer a softer light with a smoother bulb. For a warm yet joyful holiday lighting design, go with a more soft lighting choice. With a lit up house, you’ll have carolers lined up down the street.

LED ceramic bulbs are made to emulate old school, painted glass bulbs and are becoming quite popular now. Lights with tiny candle-wick-style tips and mini strawberry-shaped lights are two other bulb styles of the past that have been gaining back popularity. Choose your holiday lighting style of choice and hang them around your outdoor fireplace for an old-fashioned Christmas display.
