Grand Scale Holiday Lights At VanDusen Garden

Holiday Lights to Dress Up the Winter Garden

Full disclosure: these are NOT photos of my garden. Oh how I wish that it was…well, maybe not. I would have a broken body from the amount of work it takes to manage the 55 acres that makes up the beautiful VanDusen Gardens.

Grand Scale Holiday Lights at VanDusen Garden

Each year VanDusen dresses up their 255,000 plants and surrounding areas with the most amazing holiday displays, some of which are even choreographed to music. If you don’t have the staff, funds, or space to do what VanDusen does to show their holiday spirit, you can certainly take a few of their ideas and use them at home.

You could decorate with traditional red and green….Traditional Red and Green Holiday Lights

…or drape conifers in brilliant blue.Blue Lighted Christmas Trees

You could create a mini world that comes alive at night…Creating a World That Comes Alive at Night

    Wow, thanks for sharing those beautiful photos. I think I like the dragonfly’s best! Here in Australia it is always hot for Christmas, but people still dress their yards up in lights for the Christmas season. Thanks again. Merry Christmas, Fiona
