Love. Joy. Hope. That’s what you’ll feel (and see) as you stop to look at this display. White lights, symmetrical designs and inviting ambiance pushed this look into the winner’s circle. The pop of color from the red door, mail box and planters, as well as the sophisticated illumination of surrounding shrubs, tie it all together.
