Create an Eye-Catching Holiday Theme with Professional Outdoor Lighting

Holiday lights aren’t just for Christmas anymore! People all over Tampa Bay are starting to put up elaborate light displays outside their homes and businesses for all of the major holidays, including Halloween, Memorial Day, and St. Patrick’s Day! These year-round displays add a touch of joy to the community in a time when we could all use a little.

If you love the look of holiday lights but aren’t the DIY type of person, Decorating Elves is here to help! Our team of expert light and decoration installers will take your outdoor space from bare to flair in no time! Every gorgeous light display we help create and install brings a sense of delight to homeowners and their neighbors. Not to mention the way a child’s eyes sparkle when they see all those twinkling lights. 

All of those beautiful light displays begin with the design. Home and business owners often already have a theme in mind for their lighting display, but have a hard time following through from just an idea to a completed project. Well, that’s where we come in. Our design team at Decorating Elves has helped hundreds of Tampa Bay residents turn their ideas into breathtaking displays that people come from all around just to see.
