A Crafty Catherine Christmas: Tropical Trees

17 Dec

I spent one Christmas in Florida and while I was really lucky to experience all the Christmassy stuff Disney World has to offer (that it does so well – LOVE Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party!) putting up a Christmas tree decorated in traditional gold, green and red seems a bit weird when it’s ninety degrees and humid outside.

But I’ve found the perfect solution. In October during our crazy 3-city US trip, Eva and I went to visit her relatives in Venice Beach, Florida. There, Siegrid showed us the most amazing handcrafted thing I have ever seen: a Florida Christmas tree!

Decorated in tropical colors with miniature flip-flops, seashells and cocktail umbrellas, this little tree is truly the perfect solution to decorating homes that are hotter outside then in. Should I ever be lucky enough to live in Florida, I know I’ll be doing a full-sized version of this out by my pool…
