The time has come to hang those stockings with care, hoping that Saint Nicholas will soon be there. We’re starting our march toward the big day. While you may have gotten an early season jump on the décor around your home, do you know how to professionally light a tree? We’re taking the guess work out of making the season shiny and bright and are showing you how the experts create a tree that shines as bright as a star in the night sky.

After proclaiming that the way her husband lit their Christmas Tree this year, “ruined Christmas”, KELOLAND Living’s Ashley Thompson stopped by Landscape Garden Centers to learn how they make Christmas trees sparkle and shine from every angle.

She found out pretty quickly that making sure that all the twinkly lights and gorgeous bulbs are where they need to be can be a lot of work. In the end however, you’re left with a tree you’re going to love, and is more than social media worthy.
