holidaylighting2 The Perfect Holiday WreathWhen November rolls around each year, I think about front doors.

Maybe it’s strange, but I have so many memories from childhood of helping my mom with the holiday wreaths for the front door each year.  As soon as the weather turned cold, she would pull out an old twig wreath from the attic and we would add an assortment of leaves, gourds, flowers, and berries.  For days, we’d tweak the design until it was perfect.  And on the day after Thanksgiving, that fall wreath was transformed again with a red bow, pine cones, and a few sprigs from a fir tree.  At night, a spotlight shone on the front door to illuminate our perfect wreath, and the effect was spectacular.

I may be biased, but I think no front door is complete without a seasonal holiday wreath, especially one illuminated in all its brilliance at night.

I’ll leave the tips on how to craft the perfect holiday wreath to the experts.  But I do want to provide a tip for anyone out there hanging a wreath on their front door: Light it up!

The spotlight is really the easiest part of the wreath-hanging process.  You can use a yard stake to mount it in seconds.  You can even find one with a remote control so your toes don’t get cold from running outside to plug it in on a chilly November night.  Our LED remote controlled spotlight is on sale right now – have it shipped today so you’re ready for the season!

    I really think it’s quite smart to make the wreath remote controlled, I mean when the guests come , you can just light up before you reply the knock, it’s so sweet~
