How to Light Your Christmas Tree – Tips from a Professional Decorator


Flower Show exhibitor Daniel Krall of Celebrations Design Group shared some tips for the best way to light a Christmas tree. Read on for some good ideas:

“Foremost, always illuminate your tree with the lights plugged in. This gives you the best sense of your light coverage. Start at the bottom of the tree and work your lights in to the center trunk, in and out of each branch.

Do not wrap the lights in a circular fashion just on the outer branches. Lighting the full branch, all the way to the trunk, will give your tree additional depth and allow the ornaments to be appreciated in a more festive fashion.”

There you have it. Still in search of that perfect Christmas tree? Meadowbrook Farm has Douglas and Fraser firs galore for you to browse through, as well as a broad selection of greens and garlands to spruce up your railings and mantelpieces. These, as well as poinsettias, are 50 percent off as of today.

Thanks for the tips, Daniel, and happy holidays one and all!
