Christmas String Lights and Lighted Lanterns

Make your holidays merry and bright with Balsam Hill’s selection of Christmas string lights and lanterns. Read on to learn more about what sets our Christmas lights apart and how you can use them to decorate your home this season.


What Are The Best Christmas String Lights?

The best Christmas string lights make lighting up your holiday display as stress-free as possible. Here are three reasons why you should choose Balsam Hill string lights and Christmas light lanterns for your home:

  • Convenient
    We offer connectable string lights so you can join them together to create longer strands for larger trees, bannisters, and door or window frames. Additional features such as wireless remote controls and built-in timers make maintaining a grand lighted display easy and fuss-free.

  • Energy-Efficient
    We carry LED Christmas lights that last longer but consume less energy compared to traditional incandescent bulbs. Many of our lighted Christmas lanterns also use rechargeable batteries or solar-powered lights, making them the more sustainable choice.

  • Versatile
    Many of our string lights come with multiple display functions you can select via remote control. Our Twinkly lights give you the chance to create your own customized light show using color-changing bulbs and multiple pre-set effects, right on a downloadable mobile app.


How Do I Decorate With Christmas String Lights And Lanterns?

Charm your guests with a delightful display using our string lights and lighted Christmas lanterns. Here are some decorating ideas perfect for the season:

  • Lead The Way
    An outdoor-safe LED Christmas lantern creates a warm welcome even before your guests step foot into your home. Line them up on pathways and porch steps, or cluster them in groups by the front door. Pair with Christmas fairy lights wrapped around porch railings or cascading from roof awnings to amplify the homey glow. For more Christmas cheer, add some outdoor-safe Christmas decorations.

  • Light Up The Table
    Lighted lanterns make wonderful table centerpieces for a rustic holiday table. Create a charming scene by accentuating with small potted arrangements or seasonal foliage. You can also decorate bar carts, dessert tables, or grazing tables with LED Christmas lanterns.

  • Cast A Cozy Glow
    Choose from our lanterns lit with Christmas tree fairy lights, flameless LED candles, or solar-powered lights to create a cozy ambience in living rooms, dens, foyers, and even kitchens. Place groupings of lanterns in different sizes on fireplace mantels or staircase landings.

  • Set The Mood
    Spread some holiday cheer even in the tightest corners with a well-placed lantern. Guest bathrooms, coffee nooks, and butler’s pantries are all high-traffic areas during the Christmas season and could benefit from some cheerful mood lighting.

The warm glow of Christmas lights makes your holiday decoration even more unforgettable. Shop our site for all your decorative lighting needs. Visit our Resource Center for more expert decorating tips.
