Transforming your Big Sky home for the holidays can take a lot of time and energy. And for many homeowners here in the area, their time is split between their Montana residence and somewhere else. That means you simply might not have the necessary time involved to truly get your home ready for the holidays.

For that reason, you might be looking at indoor and outdoor Christmas decorators who can handle the work for you.

There is something magical about stepping foot into a winter wonderland without any of the work. 

After all, decking the halls can be fun, but it can also be really time-consuming and even laborious. 

It includes climbing ladders, sorting and stringing lights, lifting heavy boxes, creating and hanging various decorations, and more. Chances are, you don’t have the time to get all of that done and still be able to sit back, relax, and truly enjoy your holiday.

But how much does a service like this cost? You want to get the process started with a realistic budget in mind.

In this article, we’ll dive into the Christmas decorating service costs involved in using a professional decorator.

Average Cost to Professionally Decorate for Christmas

As you can imagine, the pricing for professional holiday decorating can really run the gamut. Different types of companies offer these services, and some will be less expensive than others.

At Blanchford Landscape Group, our Christmas decorating service costs start around $3,000 to $3,500.

But that’s a starting point. 

We certainly work with clients who invest thousands into their holiday decor. We have many clients who own high-end vacation homes and want to make their holiday vacations truly magical with a substantial investment in their holiday decor.

At the end of the day, it’s a highly customized process so every budget is unique. We don’t do cookie-cutter holiday decor. We create a plan from scratch based on each client’s wants and needs.

What Goes Into Christmas Decorating Service Costs

So, what are you getting for that investment? Well, as you can imagine, the more detailed and elaborate the decor, the more it’s going to cost.

Some homeowners do desire a somewhat simple design. They want the frame of their home strung with lights and perhaps a few trees out front lit up. Perhaps they’d also like a custom wreath on their door.

They want their windowsills, rooflines, and other features strung with lights. They desire live garland around the entrance and front porch. And perhaps they even want the inside of their home decorated. 

At Blanchford Landscape Group, we can handle both exterior and interior holiday decorating as we know that both are important to our clients. 

As we’ve mentioned, many of our residential clients are coming to spend time in their vacation homes for the holidays. Naturally, they want them ready to enjoy as soon as they arrive.

An Investment in Peace of Mind: Eliminating the Hassles and Headaches

Perhaps the most important aspect of investing in professional house decorators for Christmas is that you are investing in peace of mind.

There can be a lot of hassle associated with getting displays done in time to fully enjoy them. When you might only be coming into town for a short while, you probably don’t want to spend a day or more decorating.

Instead, people love the idea of simply showing up to their homes and having everything already done for them.

This even includes the Christmas tree.

If you’re going to be rolling into your vacation home just in time for the holidays, you might want the tree already up and ready to go. We can bring in and light your live Christmas tree so that it’s ready for you upon your arrival.

Since all of our holiday decorating services are part of a custom process, the end result is truly your own.

Your Wise Choice in Holiday Decorating Services in Big Sky

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. This is why it makes a lot of sense to invest in professional services.

When you hire a professional to handle holiday decorating for you, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and truly enjoy your holidays.
