 holiday1 Brite Ideas Decorating, one of the nation's largest holiday lighting suppliers, presented its top award for its annual holiday lighting photo contest.  A western Kentucky company was selected as the best in the nation, out of hundreds of photos submitted from distributors throughout the United States.

   Lawn Tek Landscaping & Holiday Lighting of Kuttawa was recognized for the holiday lighting decorating it did on the home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles strait of Smithland.  The award was presented on Aug. 8 at Brite Ideas’ eighth annual National Convention in Omaha, Neb.  “Lawn Tek provided an elegant and unique photograph that Brite Ideas will display in their 2009 Marketing Essentials Catalog” said Sara Pearson, national marketing director of Brite Ideas.  Company owner, Tara Stinnett said, “We knew we had a fantastic home to submit, but did not expect to win against major cities like Atlanta, Orlando and all the others throughout the United States.”

   The Straits’ home was decorated with LED lighting, which uses 1/10th the power of conventional incandescent Christmas lighting.  “Customers like the fact that they can do spectacular lighting displays on very few power outlets and also be easy on the environment” Stinnett said.

   Work crews have already begun taking customers lights out of the companies storage facility preparing them for the upcoming Christmas season.  “We’ve got hundreds of thousands of bulbs to check out, so when we get to the customer’s site, we know everything is already working properly,” she said.

   People often ask the company how they decorate numerous sites, often in bad weather?  The answer is installation and take down procedures are done in an assembly line fashion.  The thousands of light are boxed and labeled and stored in a secure warehouse, which the company owns, “Yea, it gets pretty stressful here at crunch time, but when the lights come on for the first time and you see a kid’s reaction, it’s all worth it,“ she said.

   A senior at Murray State University, Megan Carnill Jones, took the photo of the home. “Megan had two bid days in one,” said company President Kerry Stinnett. “I was in Omaha accepting the award at the very moment she was getting married in Kentucky.”
