Christmas has come a long way since the time when streamers and fairy lights were the only options available to dress your house for the festive season. Now you are able to fill your home with dazzling decorations that will sparkle throughout the festivities.

Lanterns and Fairy Lights

If you are a traditionalist, a set of coloured hanging lanterns will be the ideal choice to decorate your home. They have been updated with LEDs so their time honoured appearance is enhanced by vivid colour. 

Classic filament bulbs have also been given an LED makeover, so these former high wattage lights are now energy efficient with much lower running costs but wonderfully bright.

Multi-function Micro LEDs provide a fantastic spectacle with sets of up to 960 Supabright Lights or Cherry Lights that are maximum intensity LEDs forming intense clusters of high intensity lights in a myriad of colour. Perfect to decorate your Christmas tree and introduce brilliance throughout the house.

For something a little more restrained, why not use Clip On Candles for your tree that flicker to evoke the spirit of Dickens' Christmas Carol and times past. 

Other captivating effects can be achieved by strings of snowmen, santas and angels that are attractively crafted from acrylic and will definitely introduce fun into the festivities.

Welcome, Table And Novelty Lights

Delightful Candle Bridge Lights come in many forms to welcome your visitors at this special time of the year. Konstsmide offer wooden and metal versions, traditional in design or more modern minimalist, so there's bound to be one that perfectly suits the effect you want to create.

Santas, snowmen and reindeer are predictably popular charming Christmas Characters that are delightfully modelled in a range of poses and brought to life by internal LEDs. 

Indoor Twig and Blossom Lights are dainty and intricate, colourful and intriguing. Everyone will be fascinated by Bonsai sized cherry trees, featuring LEDs in the centre of each bloom, to much larger examples of these contemporary scintillating decorations. 

Christmas Table and Mantelpiece Lights can be beautiful confections of silver and gold ornaments together with candles with dancing flames, garlands and lanterns. 

Gorgeous acrylic pyramids and parcels, neatly wrapped in bright red filigree with a silver ribbon and bow, can decorate a corner with the promise of Christmas Day when the real parcels will be unravelled and their gifts revealed.

Always extremely popular are Christmas Silhouettes of wintery scenes that contrast with more humorous novelty window decorations, water filled snow globes and other fantasy characters that children of all ages wiill love.
