Get Ready for the Holidays with Colorful Outdoor Lighting

It feels like summer just ended, and we're already starting to think about the fall holidays. As pleasantly cooler weather descends upon Georgia, we can shift our focus to holiday celebrations, indoors and out. October will bring Halloween, November is Thanksgiving, and of course, the end of the year brings Christmas, Hannukah, and Kwanzaa.

Every holiday seems to have its trademark colors. So why not celebrate with colorful light? Let GHT Group, one of the leading outdoor lighting companies in Alpharetta and metro Atlanta, show you how. Keep reading for bright outdoor lighting design ideas for the upcoming season.

How do you go black and orange outside? Well, black will be there in the absence of light. Orange can be had courtesy of FX Luminaire’s Luxor tunable outdoor lighting. Tunable lighting like Lutron’s Ketra brings both tunable white light and color to indoor settings, and FX Luminaire does that outside your home.

Not only does FX Luminaire bring a tremendous array of up to 30,000 custom colors to the outdoors, but they make them dimmable by zone also. When connected to your home automation or lighting control system, what you can do for Halloween is only limited by your imagination. Light up the scary skeleton displays every few minutes while you give the rest of your yard the orange treatment. Save your settings for the next Halloween, and you'll save time recreating it next year.


The festival of family and food features the warm colors of the harvest. The orange of pumpkin, yellow of corn, brown of turkey and cranberry red are easy with FX Luminaire’s available custom palette and precise light control. Set the scene for your guests in the evening with the warm holiday colors. When it’s time for football, match the mood with the colors of the teams you’re rooting for.

Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa

No matter your faith or custom, use your outdoor lights to celebrate the season. Go red and green to complement your Christmas decorations, or pure white tuned to your liking with just the right amount of warmth. Go blue and silver or blue and gold for the eight days of Hanukkah. Honor the six days of Kwanza with reds and greens offset by the black of darkened areas.

Control It All Easily

Holiday lighting can get complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. The FX Luminaire Luxor system can be controlled by iOS or Android apps over Wi-Fi connections, with calendar and time-based programming for easy management of lights in the season. For even greater control, a Lutron lighting control solution can manage all your home’s lighting, inside and out, for the ultimate in holiday beauty, safety, and efficiency.
