This year the various Christmas trees seem to have some sort of a standardized look. There are the usual color combinations of red, gold and silver. Though fuchsia pink seems to be the theme color of the year.
This year we didn’t put up our usual tree because of space constraint. Whatever space available in the house is given to Alex, be it for his changing table, play mat, or jumper. But my husband felt the house lacks festive cheer, so we got a cardboard tree with decorative from Ikea which take up less space. We thought it looks pretty good except that we can’t brighten it up with lights. Well, we have candles though. Next year when Alex gets his own room, we can put up the bigger tree and set up the cardboard one in Alex’s room.
There are some trees which are in the non-traditional colors of blue.
Over in another island city of Hong Kong, the trees are decidedly more minimalist and non-conforming. My friend, Jenny, took the pictures for me knowing that I’m doing a photo collection of Christmas trees.
These trees, made from fabric materials, are located inside the International Financial Centre at Central. Don’t you think they look unique? According to Jenny, there’re rabbits and deers next to the trees.
If you’re wondering why the trees are not shown in its full length, Jenny explained that her camera phone doesn’t have the zoom and angle function to capture the entire tree as they are rather tall. Or does it got to do with photography skill? 😉
