Awesome trees. I had a light bulb moment when my young son tested the structural stability of our new tree a couple of years ago by giving it a good shove.

Unhappy with the 'new' tree, the situation challenged me to take a different approach to the decorating. And I ended up with this! I totally loved the results as in my estimation, a balance between contemporary and traditional styles was struck.

The sticks in the smaller pots are utilized by Fulani locals of
Northern Nigeria for mixing balls of ground millet with fresh yoghurt to create
the popular and refreshing ‘Fura da Nunu’
delicacy.


For this year, I did a little tweaking by introducing a couple of natural bamboo sticks. Merry Christmas and a Blessed 2015
