Electric Light Bulb Christmas Tree and Gold Reindeer in Paris

Jeff Leatham, artistic director of the Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris, has really outdone himself this year with the hotel's holiday decorations. Leatham created a unique Christmas tree out of thousands of hanging electric light bulbs! Surrounded by 40 live Christmas trees, the beautiful installation was even admired by Oprah Winfrey herself who, just two days ago, marveled on her Instagram, “Stopped in Paris to break up that loooong trip from S.Africa. Love this tree of lights at the George V. Hotel.”

Inside the lobby of the hotel, Leatham also worked with Michel Amann of Crystal Group to create Sexy Golden Reindeer. Each of the gigantic animals is made with 1,300 separate mirrors, stands over 13 feet (or 4 meters) high and weighs 1,100 lbs (or 500 kilograms) or more. In front of the bar, over 13,000 gold balls are stacked on top of each other, as Christmas trees magically float on top of them. You can watch a video of this impressive display on the Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris Facebook page.
