Living in the tropics our chances of a white Christmas is, well, zero. But that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the holidays in our own unique way! Why not put a tropical twist on your festive home decorations this year?

Here are some unique ideas:

Decorating the tree. Glittery baubles and sparkly tinsel give that cosy, festive feeling but have you ever considered adorning your tree with flowers instead? Make a day out of it and take the kids on an adventure to collect flowers of all shapes, sizes and colours to give your tree some ‘life’. These unique trimmings will be sure to inspire and impress your guests!

Tropical homewares. You can also bring the tropics into your Christmas decorations in other ways. Decorate your tree with lively golden wattle baubles, or place bright lotus pink decorative pillows around or freshen your home with ginger lily and mango-scented candles. Additionally, get crafty with some wire and loose greenery and create a summery wreath for your home.

Floral tabletop. Turn your tabletop into a bouquet of festivity for the big day with bright native flowers and floral-patterned plates. Add bowls filled with colourful seasonal fruit, healthy and refreshing snacks for your visitors!
