Christmas decorations can brighten the deepest mid-winter and it’s not difficult to achieve a stunning show that will cheer up the cold dark nights and a spectacle that will complete your celebrations.

Welcoming animal figures that can populate your garden include penguins, polar bears and reindeer taking time off from ferrying Santa in his sleigh. 

Your children will also love the bright 'Santa Stop Here!' sign, just in case he misses your house, especially when there's a collection of neatly wrapped illuminated presents near by,.

Stars And Lanterns

Solar powered star shaped pathway lights are a colourful addition to the garden where cables can’t be accommodated. Blue, multi-coloured or white, each bunch is laden with stars and can shine brilliantly where mains power isn't possible. 

Hanging lanterns and festoon lights can be deployed along a path or hung in trees and bushes. Net lights are innovative ways to cover bushes and trees with a mass of multi-function, multi-coloured, lights that can wave, glow, chase, flash and fade. 

Twig Trees

Beautifully designed in a variety of styles and sizes, brightly lit Twig Trees will add light and magic to the garden. Brown or shimmering white willow trees create an ethereal feel, others have delicate tracery of frosted branches that are stunning in their simplicity.

The illuminated white twig tree features a sprinkling of white fairy lights resembling a glittering firework, while topiary style trees are more naturalistic. Flowering Japanese cherry trees possess an intricate framework of twigs and branches brought to life with bright crystal effect blossoms.

Many people will only think of decorating the inside of their house, but these fabulous products make you realise that there are now huge opportunities to turn your garden into something very colourful, bright and welcoming.
