Every time you drive by that beautifully decorated home, twinkling with thousands of lights and festooned with holiday cheer, you smile. Then, you wonder: How much did that cost?
The professional Christmas decorators here at Neave Decor, we get that question a lot. We’ve worked with hundreds of New York and Connecticut homeowners and businesses to deck their halls for the holiday season over the past 14 years — everyone wants their home to be a beacon of holiday cheer!
Here’s a look at how your many Christmas decorating choices affect the cost.
How Much Do Professional Christmas Decorating Companies Cost? Depends On Your Taste
As you can imagine, prices for holiday decoration services and installation vary widely, depending on the kind of decorations you’re looking for.
For Neave Decor, the cost of outdoor Christmas lighting for a typical home starts at about $1,500 — that budget allows you to create a simple, tasteful effect. (But for a true outdoor holiday Christmas decorating extravaganza, you can easily spend thousands of dollars.)
Our average holiday decoration installation costs homeowners about $2,500.
Businesses we’ve worked with have spent up to $40,000 on their Christmas decorations to create unforgettable holiday impact for their customers.
Neave Group Outdoor Solutions’ Kathleen Neave was recently featured in a CNN Money piece all about the cost of professional Christmas decorators. Watch the video on CNN’s website.
Christmas Lighting Services For Outdoor Trees
Towering trees covered in twinkling lights are magical on a snowy night. But they’re among the most labor-intensive part of an outdoor decor installation, so they add to the cost.
You might choose to casually drape your tree’s branches with strings of white Christmas lights or colored Christmas lights.
If you work with a professional to create the dramatic look of every branch meticulously wrapped in tiny, twinkling lights, it will cost a bit more. Creating that effortless look of completely lit trees, several professional crew members might stand on ladders for hours to painstakingly wind yards and yards of lights around each individual branch — some larger trees even call for a bucket truck to hoist workers as high as they need to get.
The detail definitely comes at a price!
Inflatables, Figurines and Other Special Touches
Sometimes, lights just aren’t enough to express your love of the holidays. If you’re looking to make a big 3D impact that causes passersby to slow down as they drive past your home, a professional Christmas decorator can help.
Want Santa ho-ho-ho-ing up on the housetop all season long? We can arrange that. Inflatable snow globes and other holiday figures have been all the rage for the past few years.
Some homeowners love the idea of a singing choir of angels — or all eight of Santa’s reindeer prancing on the lawn. How about giant wooden toy soldiers flanking your driveway at the curb?
And in the YouTube generation, some even love to invest in an animated Christmas display that’s synchronized with everyone’s favorite Christmas carols. (Neave Decor has done more than a few — check out our animated Christmas displays gallery!)
Neave Decor has access to warehouses full of statement pieces to make your outdoor scene extra jolly. But that extra impact does mean adding a little extra to your budget.
Don’t Forget The Indoors Decoration Services
Delighting the whole neighborhood with your professional Christmas decorations is one thing, but how about lighting up the inside of your home to enjoy all season long?
A professional Christmas decorator can come in with all the supplies needed to create a winter wonderland indoors: from lights, ornaments and Christmas tree toppers to garlands, candles and more.
Perhaps you’d like to wow guests from the moment they walk in: From draping the entry chandelier with ribbons and tasteful ornaments to wrapping your entry stairway’s banister with greens and twinkling lights, a professional holiday decorator can tackle the project in no time.
You can work a professional Christmas decorator to create whimsical themed trees with your own ornaments, or deck the halls in waves of blocked colors.
Even something as simple as a single electric candle in each window can create a soft glow and a beautiful effect when viewed from the street.
And come the New Year — because nobody looks forward to the day when it’s time to take it all down — professional Chrsitmas decorators like Neave Decor will actually come back in, remove the decorations and store them for you. It’s included in our service!
