Supply Chain Shortages Are Dimming Christmas Displays

It is unlikely that anyone would notice driving near her house. It has thousands of pixels – individual lights that can change color on their own, allowing for more detailed displays.

Her show, which I started planning in March, has an animal theme this year, with a lit giraffe, flamingos, a lion, an owl, and a donkey. There is also a 40-pound glowing snowflake on its roof. On the grass, a 10-foot “huge tree” of pixel lights stands next to a seven-foot tree that flickers and flickers to the beat of songs like “Let It Go” from Disney’s “Frozen,” during a 30-minute show.

“Although it takes a lot of work, it’s worth it, just to make people smile,” Ms Branch said.

Many sellers struggle to help interior designers achieve this aura.

Christina Gilbert, co-owner of Gilbert Engineering USA, a holiday design firm in Florence, Arizona, said she has received dozens of angry emails, voicemails and Facebook messages from desperate customers who have been waiting longer than usual for plastic snowflakes and wreaths. Dotted pixels.

“People are under threat to start and run their shows, right? It’s stressful,” she said. “We are not Amazon.” She added, “We are a small family business that is part of the lighting community.”

Almost no one has cables right now,” said Jeff Haberman, who teaches conference decorating classes. The boxes — the weatherproof boxes that protect the light controllers — are selling on eBay for $45, he said, three times the usual price.

“The supply chain issues have definitely affected us because the demand has been greater than in any other year I have seen,” said Josh Treese, owner of, a company that installs lights in homes and operates in 86 locations across the country.
