This holiday season, lots of families are making the decision to stay at home, including Karl Chevrolet owners Carl and Penny Moyer. Typically, the couple spends the colder months in Arizona, but this year they decided to stay close to home in Des Moines.
That didn’t dampen their holiday spirit though.
Carl wanted to do something to make the holidays special for their friends and family. So, he reached out to the team at Perficut to create a holiday display like no other.
To bring Carl’s dream to life, the team decorated the Moyer’s house, garages, fence, and roughly 80 trees and shrubs with more than 5,000 cool white C-9 light bulbs. Upwards of two dozen wreaths were hung and an abundance of pre-lit silhouette displays of Santa Claus, elves and more were placed around the grounds. The Perficut team also installed a 28-foot Christmas tree that took four days and a 45-foot lift to assemble.
The large-scale project took 20 days from start to finish with over a dozen crew members working to make sure that everything was planned, ordered and installed in time for the holidays.
In late November, the couple hosted almost 300 cars of friends, family, neighbors and Karl Chevrolet employees for an evening enjoying the lights. Carl and Penny greeted each car personally and for over two hours guests drove through the property to take in the lights as well as the couples amazing collection of vintage cars. In addition to the impressive lights display, guest received a box of cookies and could take a photo with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the holiday event.
