As Gardening With Confidence™ begins our busy season decorating clients homes and offices for Christmas, we find we answer the same questions often: About how many lights and ornaments do I need for my tree?
Thus, a general rule of thumb is:
- 100 miniature lights per foot of tree
- 15 ornaments per foot of tree
- 10 feet of garland per foot of tree
4-foot tabletop tree – 400 lights: 60 ornaments: 40′ of garland
6-foot tree – 600 lights: 90 ornaments: 60′ of garland
7.5-foot tree – 750 lights: 112 ornaments: 75′ of garland
More is better!
