Started Decorating In Christmasville!


Recommended Posts

Started setting up the blowmolds for this year's display.  Took a little road trip Saturday and got a really nice arch for the front door (not a blowmold, but it fits in really well!).  Got my soldier/penguin wall up on Saturday.  No pics yet, but I got all the molds across the front of the house on Sunday.  Total this weekend - 111 set up, 250+ more to go.  Hope to get the rest set up this week and the wiring done next week.

Nice...where did you get the soldiers with the arch?  I don't think I've seen those any where.  Gosh, if you really have 250 more blowmolds to go my husband really has nothing to complain about with my few.  Do you use the blowmolds with an LOR?

I don't know where the arch came from originally.  The lady I purchased it from had a lot of really nice, large decorations (8' tall Santa, 6' tall nutcracker, Santa beside a 7' tall lightpost, etc.).  She was moving into a smaller house and downsizing her collection.  We only got the arch, a 3' tall sitting Santa reading a list, and three 3' tall elves.  The arch is the only outdoor decoration we got; my wife will use the others when she decorates the inside.  For lighting the soldiers, I recently purchased 200 inline vampire candelbra sockets with metal clips.  I am planning to make two long runs of bulbs.  I'll have to remove them when I take down the display, but I like it better than having individual lights plugged into a long cord with many vampire plugs.
