4 Decor Picks for a Pinoy-themed Christmas

Let these pieces add a warm and rustic feel to your space


We may have heard it more than once—there's nothing like Christmas in the Philippines. We hear Christmas carols as early as September and there are those who start displaying lanterns and Christmas lights around August!

When it comes to Christmas decor, there are a few that we consider as staples. This list includes the Christmas tree, string lights, and the colorful lanterns or parol that we hang outside. 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.
