Today marks 100 days until Christmas and we’re excited! Christmas is that special time of year which brings about joy, goodwill, Starbucks holiday cups, unreal Amazon lightning deals, endless food and days off work! Family and friends come together wearing ugly sweaters and kids get more excited with each passing toy commercial as Santa’s visit draws near. There’s no other time of year when we can pack into the car with our Venti hot chocolate and drive around viewing beautiful and amazing holiday decorations. Christmas is coming! Yeah, we know, before Christmas day arrives, we’ve got Halloween and Thanksgiving day to look forward to. You may be thinking, “Christmas already? I’m still deciding on my Halloween costume!” Well, so are we! We’ve got 45 days to figure one out. Still, with our immediate focus on what to wear for Halloween and what food to contribute on turkey day, there’s a constant reminder in the back of our minds that Christmas is near. 100 days near to be exact! Here at Dekra-Lite, we live Christmas year-round and our own countdown begins in Spring when we embark on customizing holiday décor and mapping out dazzling programs for the coming season. You might assume that [...]
With Summer season in full swing, most of us are reveling in thoughts of family vacations, trips to the beach and barbeque get-togethers, while many businesses are celebrating company picnics and working around employee vacations. During summertime, planning holiday décor for your business property may be the furthest thing from anyone’s mind. You may think it’s much too early to think about Christmas décor. The truth is, the best time to begin planning a Holiday Décor program for your company property is right NOW. The most memorable and magical Christmas programs happen when you plan and prepare well in advance. So as you plan your summer concert calendar and finalize the menu for the company picnic, you may also want to call a meeting with the team to start planning your property's Christmas décor. Unfortunately, the magic of Christmas doesn’t just happen magically. Depending on your budget, the size of your property and your desired décor, a holiday program can take several months of planning, design, preparation and fabrication, before one Christmas lightbulb can be installed. Commercial decorating companies often work with theme parks, shopping centers and cities to provide show-stopping holiday programs, and procrastinating on your holiday décor program may have [...]
HUNTINGTON PARK, CA — Dekra-Lite is honored to once again partner with the City of Huntington Park for this year’s Christmas Lane Parade. The parade will be held at 6 p.m. December 10 at Slauson Avenue and Pacific Boulevard, traveling south on Pacific to Florence Avenue. From 6 to 7:30 p.m. Pacific Boulevard will be closed to traffic, along with portions of adjoining Gage, Zoe and Saturn avenues, City Manager Edgar Cisneros said in a report to the council on October 18. Concerning street decorations, Cisneros said each year the city provides holiday decorations on Pacific Boulevard for the community to enjoy. In 2014, the city purchased holiday decorations from Dekra-Lite. He said Dekra-Lite will be responsible again this year for installation, removal and storage of existing city-owned decorations. In addition, Dekra-Lite will upgrade city-owned decorations with LED cool white lights and add additional lights to the overhead décor, the city manager said. As a new feature, Dekra-Lite has manufactured and will install two 21.5-foot high Shooting Star Skylines for greater parade route illumination, he added.
It may have been the last weekend of June but it was looking a lot like Christmas throughout The Big A! A giant 24’ Christmas tree, decorated in Angels logos with red and green ornamentation, was placed out front for everyone to see. The tree sat on top of a custom graphic base, made especially for the event. A Season’s Greetings sign was lit under the main entrance and over-sized garlands and wreaths hung throughout the stadium. We here at Dekra-Lite, the premier provider of commercial Christmas décor and lighting, are pleased to work closely with Angels Baseball and help make this year’s “Christmas in June” event a success. For three days, Angels fans enjoyed a holly jolly Christmas celebration filled with custom Angels décor and other unique decor items found throughout the ball park. With products as unique as The Big A, we here at Dekra-Lite would like to thank Angles Baseball for letting us turn Angels Stadium into a Christmas wonderland. We look forward to next year’s event and can’t wait to show you what we have in store for 2017. Happy Holidays!
On June 25th, The Minnesota Twins visited The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at The Big A during Christmas Hat Giveaway Night. The game fell on the six-month countdown to Christmas and what better way to celebrate! It makes sense that the Dekra-Lite Elves were there to help decorate the stadium for the record-breaking night! Christmas at the Angels Game Santa Hats were distributed to guests as they arrived for the game and fans were delighted to see garlands and wreaths hanging all through stadium as they found their seats. The plan to help celebrate Half Way to Christmas was to break the Guiness World Book of Records for most Santa Hats worn in one place. As the fans cheered and got to experience wreaths hung throughout the inner stadium and one in the famous outfield waterfall, attendance was announced at 35,671 which surely beat the previous record of 872. A Guiness World Record adjudicator made the record official after the fans wore their Santa Hats for five consecutive minutes in the fifth inning. For the Angels, Christmas came early and they beat the Twins 6-2. Dekra-Lite loves partnering with Organizations, Cities, Properties and Theme Parks to make Christmas come alive for [...]
