They recreated the entire room for the shoot, including re-wrapping each branch of the Dogwood tree with white Christmas lights and garlands of white flowers. “After doing it twice,” he says, “I feel like an expert!” To find out how to make your own modern Christmas tree, check out “Contemporary Christmas Tree How-To.”
