Not sure how to design your house for Christmas? Here are a few ideas from local celebrities for some Christmas designs!
We’re all struggling to come up with a nice design this Christmas. Whether it’s food trays, desserts, or even costumes, planning a festive design adds a bit of pressure since we’d want something a lot better than last year. Some of us might go for a more minimalist Christmas look while others would want something more extravagant. So, we gathered a few celebrities from who have started getting into the Christmas spirit.
Christmas Design Ideas by Local Celebs
1. Marjorie Barretto‘s Christmas Village
In one of Marjorie’s vlogs, she showcases her little Christmas Village made with all sorts of ceramic pieces. From the people, the houses, the rides, and skating rinks, Marjorie made use of her ceramic Christmas collection to create a Christmas village for this year’s Christmas design. If your kids have LEGO, they can also make a Christmas village out of LEGO pieces if you’re scared to bring out the fragile pieces.
2. Kim Chiu’s (@chinitaprincess) Christmas Tree of Hope
If there’s anything we need this year, it’s hope. Hope that the pandemic ends soon and that we can fight for a better Philippines. Although simple and minimalist in white, Kim Chiu’s tasteful use of the white feathers creates a flowy image of a crane or a dove. As far as culture’s concerned, both the crane and dove symbolize hope to wish for better years to come.
3. Paolo Ballesteros’ (@pochoy_29) Giant Christmas Gift
Dads can come up with cute Christmas designs, too! Eat Bulaga‘s Paolo Ballesteros decided to bring some decorations outside his home to share the festive spirit with his neighbors. He placed a big gold ribbon on his house which lights up at night. So not only are his neighbors reminded in the morning but at night, too!
4. Candy Pangilinan’s (@candypangilinan) Blue Christmas
Candy makes sure that the only thing blue at home for Quentin is the Christmas balls hanging on the tree. Mixed with accents of gold and white, Candy’s blue Christmas design ought to offer something cooler on the eyes.
5. Jinkee Pacquiao’s (@jinkeepacquiao) White Christmas Garden Design
To take our little garden living to the next level, we can try following Jinkee’s white Christmas garden. No colored lights, just plain warm white lights illuminating the other structures. There’s a lit up reindeer and their trees are filled with lights as well. It’s a place that her kids would always want to run around and enjoy during Christmas.
6. Sarah Geronimo’s (@justsarahg) Candyland Christmas
With the help of event stylist, Gideon Hermosa, Sarah Geronimo personally picked out a more pastel and candy-like approach for her Christmas design. Gone are the sparkly stars or the glittering Christmas balls. Instead, the Christmas tree is adorned with a variety of sweets and metallic matte Christmas decor.
7. Ruffa Gutierrez’s (@iloveruffag) Soft White Christmas
Snowflakes and feathers are often the first thing that come to mind for a white Christmas design. But Ruffa decided to go with something a little… fluffier. Adorning her Christmas tree are a variety of white teddy bears mixed with some blue Christmas lights and golden ribbons for something that’s not so red.
8. Nadine Samonte’s (@nadinesamonte) Classic Red Christmas
Mom of Heather Sloane and Austin Titus Chua, with another one on the way, Nadine Samonte enlisted the help of Gideon Hermosa to style a classic red Christmas design. One can’t really go wrong with the classics when it comes to designs. With little golden cones and red Santas hanging from the branches, it’ll definitely be a Merry Christmas in the Samonte-Chua household.
Our Personal Christmas Design
Christmas is a big part of our culture as it celebrates family. For the last two years, we’ve been stuck at home with the kids and learned so much about them. Although there’s some pressure to top our Christmas design last year, we shouldn’t forget why we decorate the house. It’s not about the likes and loves we get on IG or FB but it’s more about celebrating the happy days and the pandemic milestones we’ve all covered as a family.
