Holiday Sculptures

An inflated holiday reindeer and sleigh set with 350 lights and an extension cord will set you back $157 at Home Depot. Or Kathleen Neave, who provides Christmas decorating services in the New York City area, can turn your front yard into a skating rink with a circumference of about 40 feet or more. The rink houses 4- to 7-foot steel figures of a mother, father and kids ice skating. Erik Elkaim, a director at Party Works Interactive in Los Angeles, rents giant dreidels to Jewish clients for their lawns. The dreidels are about 4 feet in diameter and cost $175 for two weeks.
