It wouldn’t be a holiday without Linvilla Orchards, and today our friends return to deck out our set and turn it into a winter wonderland! The gorgeous spread is courtesy of Norm Schultz and his team of skilled farmers. They’re here to explain to us how to stage the perfectly-decorated tree! Norm says it’s important to always start with the lights, about “100 per foot of tree.” Then you’re free to add ornaments, but start with the largest ones first, as they’ll need to be staggered throughout your tree. Next, add the smaller ornaments around them and choose a tree topper that matches the theme of your tree. Last step – finish off with garland, popcorn and any other trim you may desire.
He also says don’t worry about what your tree looks like when you have young kids.
“You should let them put on anything they want, any way they want,” Norm says.
You can cut your own tree at Linvilla Orchards through Christmas Eve or shop their pre-cut selection.
