When I was a kid, I always thought of December to be the most magical month of the year. To the 8-year-old me, it meant festive lights, memories made with family, and giving to others. My family always decorated the Christmas tree together, on the second Sunday before Christmas Day. This was pretty much my scope of holiday decorating at that age. My parents never decorated the exterior of our house (despite my protests), and when my sister and I slept, my mother stayed up all night decorating the interior. Driving home from get-togethers with family, we would take the long way home, oohing and aahhing at block after block of holiday lights. And when the lights reflected off the snow, it really was magical
As I got older, I found myself getting less into the holiday spirit. Adult me realized that it was a lot of work. Working retail full-time and tackling a full course load in college left little time for running errands and doing adult things. The first and last time I decorated for the winter holidays was my first year in my own apartment.
Things are different today. We work long hours and exhaust ourselves by mid-week. Decorations are expensive. They’re a hassle to put up (and even more of a hassle to take down and store). And if we’re not working on the weekends, we cherish what little time we have with our family. One shouldn’t be sacrificed for the other.
The Star Shower® family of home decoration products is the easy solution to decorating your home. Whether you want a colorful way to celebrate your favorite holidays, a fun, yet simple laser light show, animated window displays, or a fuss-free answer adding lights to your tree, there’s a Star Shower® product for you.
The newest member of the Star Shower® family is Slide Show™. It features full colored holiday slides that project pictures on your home. Choose to play the slides slow or fast, or keep the images static. Slide Show™ is the first of the Star Shower® to celebrate beyond Christmas and Halloween. While Slide Show™ does include 6 Christmas slides and 2 Halloween slides, the weather-resistant slide projector also includes a Valentine’s Day slide, an Easter slide, a patriotic slide (fireworks), and a celebratory slide (balloons). Slide Show™ covers up to 3200 square feet. Add multiple Slide Show™ units for an extra enchanted display. Rent an apartment? No problem! An indoor base is included so you can celebrate inside. Learn more about Star Shower® Slide Show™ here.
Also new for 2017 is the Star Shower® Laser Magic™. Similar to its predecessor, Laser Magic™ turns your home into a laser light show. However, Laser Magic™ includes pictograms like Santa, bats, north star, laser dots, snowmen, and ghosts to celebrate Christmas or Halloween. The technical specs are similar to Slide Show™, in that the weather-resistant laser projector can cover up to 3200 square feet. However, Laser Magic™ has two movement options: motion or static. You can display your laser show in either green laser or a combo of red and green laser. An indoor base is also included so you can bring the part indoors. Get your Star Shower® Laser Magic™ here.
Rather than displaying pictures or lasers over the exterior of your home, Window Wonderland™ plays short 16-second movies in your windows. Your windows become an animated display to passersby on the street. Window Wonderland™ uses a rear projection screen, which covers your window. Then, you set up the movie projector so the movie fills your window (be sure not to let objects obstruct the window, or the movies will look funky). It has a 360-degree pivoting stand so you get the best angle possible. Window Wonderland™ includes six Christmas theme movies and six Halloween theme movies. It’s a great decorating option for those that do not wish to physically keep decorations outside their home, apartment dwellers, room renters, and more! Get your Window Wonderland™ here.
String lights are a tangled mess. Rather than get frustrated trying to untangle tiny bulbs and green wire, try the Tree Dazzler™. It’s the easiest way to decorate your Christmas tree. A ring rests on the top of the tree and 8 vertical strands of LED lights hang down. You have the freedom to arrange the 64 lights as you wish. Unlike traditional Christmas lights, Tree Dazzler™ has 16 light patterns and 3 light modes. You can even stack multiple Tree Dazzler™ units for the ultimate Christmas tree light show. The recommended average tree height for Tree Dazzler™ is 7.5-feet. Instead of spending hours untangling last year’s mess, you can just place and arrange in minutes. Get your Tree Dazzler™ here.
