Take Christian Dior's creative director John Galliano. Every year, he designs and builds the Christmas Tree at London's luxury Claridge Hotel. Every year, I love to see the unveiling of this tree as it is truly a work of art.
This year, John was inspired by the ocean and created this "Under the Sea" christmas tree. Although I am a traditional christmas tree kind of gal, I can so appreciate this beauty!
The details of the underwater sea life are amazing!
In 2009, John Galliano's tree was equally as impressive. This one was inspired by the jungle.
But there are other non-traditional christmas trees that I must admit, I find truly beautiful and innovative.
Take this Orchid tree on display at the National Museum of Art (2006).
Or take Soo Kee's Jewelry's christmas tree made of clear crystals and close to a thousand carats of diamonds literally worth 1.55 million dollars!
But other simpler ones can be just as attractive.
If you have a unique Christmas tree, I'd love to hear all about it. I find Christmas trees to be beautiful no matter their size, shape or style. For just a few weeks out of our busy year, they become the gathering place for many of us. A place that is magical regardless of your age.
