How many lights do you need for your tree?

realchristmastreesWhatever you style, tastes or budget, for most people the focal point of any home this year is the Christmas tree with its sparkling lights.

A question we get asked a lot every year is how many lights do I need for my tree? That’s why we’ve put together this helpful little blog post to give you a general idea of how many lights are just right for your tree.

The below is a general rule of thumb and you can use more or less lights depending on personal tastes.

Tree Size Lights Needed
3 – 4 Foot 100 Lights
4 – 5 Foot 200 Lights
5 – 6 Foot 360 Lights
6 – 7 Foot 480 Lights
8 Foot + 720 Lights

Now that you know, it’s time to start shopping for some lights! Our most popular range is our selection of Supabrights from Premier Decorations.

Wicker Tree Skirts – The Latest Trend!

Time to pack up those plastic fangs and put away those scary masks; with Halloween and bonfire night out of the way, we think it is safe to say that Christmas is most certainly on the way!

With that said, it is time to start thinking about some of those import Christmas essentials such as a tree and decorations for your home. When most people think about decorating their home for Christmas they might think lights, baubles, tinsel and maybe even an angel for the top of the tree, but something maybe not a lot of people think about yet is a tree skirt to hide away the usually unsightly base!

900011_1000The tree skirt is an American import that has slowly been becoming more of a Christmas essential than you might have realised! The idea of a tree skirt is to hide away the tree stand and watering tray to make you tree a more inviting and attractive feature in your home.

You’ll be happy to hear that we stock two amazing wicker tree skirts in both natural and white wash, so no matter what style of room or tree you have, we have a tree skirt to match! Our tree skirts are amazing value at £11.99 and we’ve already had some amazing feedback about the quality, style and looks of them.

Get ahead of the trend and take a look at our range online here. This year you can forget keeping up with the Joneses – this year you are the Joneses!

Zaplites – the App Enabled Lights

You know what it’s like when it’s windy and raining out and you’ve forgotten to switch your Christmas lights on…and this year you decided to set them up from your garage. Nuisance right? No more trudging outside in your slippers! Zaplites have brought you App Enabled Lights. Hip, hip, hooray! Here at Longacres, they are now in stock, ranging from £19.99 through to £59.99.

Zaplites are LED string lights that you can work from your phone. Simply download the App from Google Play or the App Store – or scan the QR code on the side of the box – and you’re all set to go.

461780The lights can be controlled from up to 30m away (providing there isn’t a wall between your phone and them) and can be used indoors or out as the receiver is weatherproof.  You can control the brightness of the lights, along with different lighting effects.  Make sure you do check the specifications on the back of the box to ensure the lights are compatible with your device.

Get a few strings and you can have endless fun changing your household displays.  I bet Santa wishes he had some of these too.
