Boulder High School Graduation Party

This weekend was wet and soggy but that never stops your reliable Colorado Christmas Lights team.  We helped a few families celebrate their children graduating from Boulder High School in Boulder, Colorado.  As a lighting company we not only specialize in Christmas lights but in the summer time we spend our days lighting various events and venues.  If you are seeking assistance for your next party, please contact us.  We would love to light up your holiday.

We installed warm white LED 5mm mini lights on 10 Aspen Trunks and provided 3 purple uprights in the front and 3 in the rear (wall washers).  Lighting always brings life to a party.  Contact us today #303-956-7445 or email


24 Unique Wedding Lighting Ideas

We are all about the wedding details—cakes, flowers, monogrammed invites, and more. But we have to admit this understated fact: Lighting is the single most important décor element at your wedding. And while, at first, that thought sounds more functional than fun, hear us out: The bulbs and candles you select (whether they're simple votives or over-the-top chandeliers) are what will ultimately light your perfect venue, make your photos just right, and keep the party going—even after the sun sets. So, yeah, lighting is important, and it's an essential element of both your budget and wedding-day décor. But that doesn't mean you can't have fun with it—in fact, you should have fun with it! As with any other design detail, treat choosing, planning, and installing the night's illumination as yet another opportunity to carry out your design vision—whatever style that is.

And we don't just mean "style" in terms of whether you're a modern, romantic, or glam bride. Instead, take a moment to think about your priorities and create a lighting plan around that. For instance, if you're a foodie bride who envisions a wine-fueled night under the stars, consider hanging string lights above the dinner area or placing a long line of taper candles down the middle of the table. Both would spotlight the night's main show (the food!) and keep your guests in their seats way past the final course. Same goes for you flower ladies. If you're spending that much per bloom, show them off with plenty of votives scattered about. And if you already have your dancing shoes ready for a night on the dance floor, make a show of it with a disco ball up top or paper lanterns around the area's perimeter. (You can see examples of both below, but a lighting statement here almost guarantees a good party—why do you think you like dancing at a night club so much?!)

But seriously, as you start to think about your lighting plan, remember that the options are endless and can be easily catered to any venue, budget, and style. Keep scrolling to see dozens of picture-perfect wedding lighting ideas that will make your day shine—like, literally. This is your time in the spotlight so now's your chance to choose the right light!

For the people of boulder! This is to you from Lights Up

The week of Sept 11, 2013 Boulder was hit by a major flood. The flood ripped down Boulder creek leaving its mark from the mouth of Boulder canyon to east county. One night after walking home from a BHS football game I noticed how lifeless, cold and dark the creek path was. As the owner of Lights Up I decided the one thing I could do to bring a little joy to others while enjoying a nice evening stroll along Boulder creek and to passerby's on 17th street was a lights display. Although the house at its highest point stands 80'+ from the creek, my guys harnessed themselves using ropes and in turn the display turned out fantastic. We already have had a few folks knock on our door to say thank you. These lights aren't about my house nor my business rather to spread a little holiday cheer and joy to our community. Furthermore, I believe these lights will provide some light to a dark place. Sorry for the poor picture quality, my photographer will be snapping pics once the leaves have completely fallen.
