Glowing Trees

Add a little sparkle to your front or back yard.

It's not just fir trees' time to shine. This season, why not dress your naked deciduous trees with Christmas lights? Oversized or whimsically-shaped white lights are a chic alternative to standard multicoloured strings. "Christmas, for me, lives everywhere," shares designer and homeowner Sarah Richardson, who draped her apple tree with pretty globes.
