LUBBOCK, TX--(Marketwired - Jun 23, 2015) - Trees and shrubs are putting on their seasonal show and neighborhoods are alive with color. Sounds like summer is settling in for sure, but the Christmas Decor holiday decorating experts say that this description increasingly describes the latest trend in winter holiday decorating as well -- the incorporation of eye-catching colored lights and greenery enhancements into holiday decorating schemes. To ensure the widest selection of the latest in festive lighting and decorating options, these decorating pros encourage home and business owners to schedule their holiday design consultations and installations now, while prime early dates are still available.

"While classic, clear lights are still the most popular choice, the past few years have seen a resurgence of the use of color on holiday displays," said Brandon Stephens, president of Christmas Decor. "Clients are asking us to give their holiday lighting plan a custom update by incorporating colored lights on trees or shrubs in their landscaping, or enhancing their lighted wreaths and greenery with winterberry or pine cone 'picks' and colorful ornaments. It's a great new trend that is catching on from coast-to-coast."

Christmas Decor decorating professionals work with each property owner to design a custom plan that fits their property and their budget. Stephens explains that each holiday decorating project is unique -- whether it's a plan for an individual home, a downtown business, or an office campus. "The architecture of the roof, walkways, unique building features, windows, entrances -- all of these play a role in any holiday lighting plan," Stephens adds. "But lights on the trees and shrubs that surround the property can really make the design 'pop,' especially when you work colored lights into the design. Some property owners request that we make every third bulb in a string red, or alternate three clear bulbs with two red bulbs. It's a subtle change that can have a big impact."

Whether you are a homeowner who wants to create a great environment to welcome family and to celebrate the holiday season, or a business owner who wants to draw the attention of passersby and encourage shoppers to stop in and browse, a professional holiday decorating firm can create a festive lighting and decorating plan that fits your budget and your style. The key, says Stephens, is to schedule your holiday display now.

The optimum window for holiday display installations is a small one -- beginning in October and wrapping up in early December -- and the demand for these services is growing as more and more property owners turn the annual chore and stress of planning, installing, storing, refurbishing and replacing their holiday decorations over to the professionals. Each year, priority spots on installation calendars go to current clients, so Stephens says that it's important to lock in your appointment soon. Property owners who wait until they feel that nip in the air may find themselves turned away because schedules are full.
