|This one is actually from Christmas at my sisters place. Cute huh!|
The other thing is that although we live in New Zealand, we still celebrate Christmas the way my mum used to in Germany. This means that everything happens on Christmas Eve (Christmas day ends up being for other family Christmas obligations... just when you think you can't eat any more you're off to somebody elses house for another feast!), so the lounge needs to look beautiful in the dark! I have found very little ideas online for a more tropical less traditional Christmas theme however I do love these from Shelterness (one of my favourite crafty websites by the way)...
Paper cube lights
Wine bottle lantern
Anyway like I said, I would love to hear/ see how you guys decorate for Christmas. Do you have any cute, crazy ideas for more of a tropical/ non traditional style Christmas??
