The holidays can be such a magical time here in Big Sky, MT. This is a popular time for many second homeowners to arrive in town and begin enjoying their vacation home while they have some time off of work and school.

One thing that makes this time even more special is the addition of light decorations for Christmas. Since many folks do come here to simply relax and enjoy time off, the last thing you want to do is spend a lot of time decorating. 

Nothing is better than just showing up and already having the home ready thanks to a Christmas interior decorator (or exterior decorator) who can handle all of the details.

But how do you choose a company that offers professional Christmas lights and interior/exterior decorating services?

In this article, we’ll talk about how to choose a holiday decorating service so that you can help ensure you’re satisfied with the results.

Look for a Company with an Eye for Design

A Christmas exterior decorator (or interior decorator) should absolutely have an eye for design.

When you’re investing in professional holiday decor, you want a finished product that looks spectacular and not like something that you could have done yourself. 

That’s why it’s so important to choose a company that you know has a keen eye for design and will create a truly custom look for your home.

Specifically, look for companies that take a custom approach. After all, you want a chance for your holiday decor to express your home’s originality in a festive way. That means more than just a boring string of icicle lights.

When it comes to decorating, you’d rather save the cookie cutters for your gingerbread men and go with something that is totally original. 

At Blanchford Landscape Group, we approach each project as a one-of-a-kind opportunity to showcase its beauty. We’ll even work with your interior designer to ensure our holiday decor complements your style. 

That brings us to our next point…

Find a Christmas Exterior Decorator Who Can Do the Interior, Too

A lot of the companies that offer professional Christmas lights do not get into interior home decor. But we find that many homeowners want their ENTIRE home ready…and that includes the indoors, too.

That’s why we provide complete installation, follow-up service checks before your arrival date, live fresh greenery refreshes, and takedown and storage, too.

While we know that for some homeowners, decorating the tree is part of the fun (and we can leave that to you, if that’s the case), many want to show up and have it ready to go. There’s something magical about walking into your home with everything already decorated and ready for you to simply enjoy.

We’re taking the guesswork and the hassle out of the process so that all you have to do is show up. 

These clients view us more as “property managers” who are looking after their homes and making sure that they are ready for them when they arrive.

Find a Christmas Interior Decorator Who You Trust

That brings us to our next point, which is how important it is that you find a home decorator that you fully trust. 

As we mentioned above, many homeowners do see us as property managers and they trust us to look after their homes when they are not there. But this would not give them peace of mind if they did not have full confidence and trust in us.

It’s important to choose a professional service that has proven experience and a stellar reputation. 

At Blanchford Landscape Group, our holiday decor clients are usually also our landscape clients. They have already trusted us to maintain the exterior of their home with all of their landscaping needs. We’ve built long-lasting relationships and have been proud to take over other services that they’ve needed, including interior and exterior holiday decor.

Your Wise Choice in Holiday and Light Decorations for Christmas

Whether it’s lighting, live greenery, or other holiday decorations, there can be a lot of hassle associated with getting displays done in time to fully enjoy them. 

That’s why it makes a lot of sense to invest in a professional service. 

Not only are you ensuring that you get a fantastic-looking display with someone who has an eye for design, but you’re also removing the headaches from the equation.

For example, we’re not only bringing in the lights and decorations but we’re taking them down, too. The latter is probably most people’s least favorite aspect of holiday decorating. While decorating can have an element of fun, de-decking is not fun at all. That’s why they love that we’re doing it all for them.

We’re taking away other headaches, too. How many times have you stared at a strand of lights frustrated that you can’t figure out what’s wrong with it? But when we handle a holiday decor job, we’re handling problems that arise as well.

If a lightbulb blows out, that’s not your problem—it’s ours. We’re going to promptly take care of anything that goes wrong so that you can continue to enjoy your holiday decor to the fullest, throughout the season.

When you look back on the times spent in your Montana home, those feelings and the holiday spirit created by your spectacular decorations will all be part of those special memories.
