So the Frasier Fir you picked out in a dimly lit tree lot seemed great—until you put it up in your house and realized it had more gaping holes in it than the 70-footer holding court at Rockefeller Center this year. (Turns out, 2020 has been hard on all of us, greenery included.) Those gaps and holes aren’t necessarily a bad thing, though. In fact, they can be an asset for creating your most over-the-top, eye-catching display yet.
To prove it, we turned to HomeGoods style expert Jenny Reimold. She trims nine trees a year throughout her Nashville home, each worthy of a Macy’s window display. So who better to show us how to decorate a Christmas tree that rivals the ones you see on Pinterest and Instagram? Here’s exactly how she does it.
