How do we do it? Well it took a lot of research, reading, trial and error. We knew we didn't want a front yard full of lights, Christmas trees, etc which explains why we chose what we chose.

  1. Talk to your neighbors and let them know what's going to happen. Our neighbors were very understanding and curious to see what we were doing especially since all the decor went up two weeks before Thanksgiving.

  2. If you live in an area that doesn't snow, make sure you cut your grass real low and trim your bushes. It's better without having to worry about all the extension cords.

  3. Zip Ties. They will become your best friend! Go to your local Home Depot or Lowes and purchase a big bag of zipties. They will help in handy in wrangling the extension cords.

  4. Host a Premiere. Invite friends, family, and especially neighbors to view the first light show of the season. You'll feel so accomplished why not share it with everyone. Since it'll be cold have hot chocolate and coffee on hand to keep everyone warm and toasty. Ask everyone to bring a treat and it'll be the hit of the season! 

  5. Make sure you've got motion detectors along with security cameras to record any vandals and hopefully deter them from doing any damage to your hard work.
