In Australia, we’ve certainly embraced our own food trends when it comes to what to serve and eat on Christmas Day.
While Americans are enjoying eggnog, pudding and turkey by the roaring fire, in Australia the warmer climate means we’re more likely to be eating amazing seafood buffets, summer desserts and enjoying a daytime barbecue.
Well one clever lady over at the amazing Kmart Mums Australia Facebook group has taken things one step further - using inspiration from our steamy summer weather to create this EPIC tropical Christmas tree.
Using ‘a tonne’ of colourful fake flowers from Kmart and tropical fish ornaments, Kmart Mums follower Amy created the masterpiece - and who needs an angel at the top of your ‘Tropical Christmas Tree’ when you have a giant flamingo! Love it!
‘This year I’m embracing our hot weather Christmas with a tropical themed tree,’ she wrote on the Kmart Mums Facebook page. ‘My favourite part is the floral garland that wraps around the entire tree, which is made up of a tonne of faux flowers, including the gorgeous peony bouquets from Kmart Australia.’
Not surprisingly, it’s received a unprecedented reaction on Kmart Mums page, with more than 7,000 followers liking the post and inundating Amy with compliments.
‘This is SO awesome’ wrote one Kmart Mum. Said another: ‘That is my favourite tree ever!’ And one more wrote: ‘GOAAALLLLLSSSSS.’
