4 Decor Picks for a Pinoy-themed Christmas

If you're thinking of adding new pieces to your collection or you simply want a classic theme for this year's celebration, here are four picks that you may want to consider:

How many homes display a parol or two at home? We're sure that if you simply go out of the house, you'll spot around 10 homes. Aside from using these picks as tree ornaments, these can be displayed all over the house—especially if you live in a condo.
