Blaze of light: Christmas decorating tips, part 3

Ambience for the shop window and the store

Light up the world! Luminous elements magically draw the eye to things and create a festive mood. If burning candles make you nervous, here are some other lighting ideas.

Thanks to LED technology, lighting elements are a great decorating choice: they are energy-efficient, available in all colors and can be easily controlled with timers.

The poinsettia is a classic at Christmas time. It’s also an excellent choice for a traditional audience.

Animals and cute things are always popular with the little kids - and often with the big kids, too.

Whether they hang, stand, dangle from the ceiling or decorate the walls - flashing and sparkling features grab your attention. Though there shouldn’t be too many of them. Think quality over quantity.

Super trendy: string lights or LED fairy lights that illuminate glass vases or bottles.
