7 ideas for tropical Christmas home

The calendar is saying Christmas and New Year’s Eve are approaching, but the temperatures are saying summer. So why not decorate your house with exotic Christ- mas ornaments that are super original! Bye, bye pine tree and snowman! Do not opt for traditional pinecones and cranberries, incorporate flowers and other decorative items in bright and vibrant colors. We gathered 7 ideas to help you transform your house into a summery tropical Christmas decoration.

Summer in the jar
Transform your old mason jars into sparkling Christmas decoration that will give you the air of summer. Put glittering Christmas balls with beautiful corals and seashells. Add magical touch with an LED Christmas light inside.

Elegant Seashell Christmas Tree
A pile of seashells forming elegant Christmas tree will give you a summer feel this holiday season. Top the tree with a starfish and you are good to go.

Decorate With String Lights
If you are blessed enough to have a backyard with trees, use string light to bring a warm glow. Wrap the lights around the tree for a fairy tale like setting.

Sand Snowman
Who says that you need snow to make a “snowman”? If you are living in Indonesia and can’t make an actual snowman, sand can be your alternative. Form two styrofoam balls of different sizes into a snowman. Cover it with glue and sprinkle sand into it. Use shells for the eyes and nose. Complete the look with twigs and a straw hat.

Strawberry Shaped Tabletop Tree
When you can have all sorts of the tabletop tree, why not make a strawberry one too! It would make a lovely centerpiece for your dining table.

Tropical Table Setting
Let the entire table setting say Bali out loud! One should not overlook the power of pine- apples and palm leaves to give the feel of summer in the setting.

Flamingo Christmas Tree
Remember those floating flamingos that were everywhere this year? You can throw a glitter around one of them for a festive feeling or decorate a wire shaped Christmas tree with flowers and plastic flamingos. The garland and LED Christmas light give off a magical vibe to it. Perfect for your yard on the holiday.■
