A Hotel In Paris With Stunningly Beautiful Christmas Decorations

In the courtyard of the Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris sits a gorgeous Christmas tree made out of thousands of hanging electric light bulbs, surrounded by 40 live trees.

The tree is the work of the hotel’s artistic director Jeff Leatham, and it is so beautiful it prompted Oprah Winfrey to post a picture of it on her Instagram while on a stopover in Paris from South Africa.

Leatham also created a reindeer installation titled ‘Sexy Golden Reindeer’ for the hotel lobby. Working with Michel Amann of Crystal Group, each reindeer comprises 1,300 mirrors, standing over 13-feet-high and weighing 1,100 lbs or more.

The front of the bar features over 13,000 gold balls stacked on top of each other, giving the illusion of Christmas trees floating on top of them.

Admire some pictures of the installations below and watch a video of the display on the Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris Facebook page.
