Dusit Thani Manila's Uniquely Designed Christmas Tree

Philippine Star Columnist and socialite Celine Lopez designed this tree.
 You must have seen a Christmas tree as a fresh pine tree or synthetic ones made from fiber optics or plastics. Well, I guess we all have them at home or in the malls. You may have seen trees in different colors too, from bright ones to dark ones. They also come in different sizes and height as well. But you may not have seen unique Christmas trees that are specially designed by popular personalities.

Socialite and Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist Tessa Prieto-Valdez put Barbie dolls on her tree.
 I had the opportunity to visit Dusit Thani Manila's unique Christmas trees designed by well-known personalities from different fields. Philippine Star columnist, author and socialite Celine Lopez had her tree made up of white roses and silver balls. I think her tree looks classic and elegant, maybe it has a bit of her personality. As for extremely fashionable Ms. Tessa Prieto-Valdez, she had her tree done with tons of Barbie Dolls in gowns created by different designers as well. Thereby making her tree as unique as she is. Ms. Prieto's buddy, eventologist and Tweetbiz host, Tim Yap had his own tree designed with loads of Hello Kitty dolls and Swatch voodoo dolls. On the other hand, famous designer Rajo Laurel had his trees filled with hangers clothed in somewhat pinkish or peach color.
  Thai airways also had their own tree with purple silk and gold trimmings ornaments. While HSBC had their tree designed in white candle-shaped with red and transparent balls. The uniquely designed trees will be on display at the Dusit Thani Manila's lobby until the end of this month. There's also a ginger bread house made from real marshmallow, biscuits and chocolate bars. Inside were yummy goodies you can buy as gifts. To complete the Christmasy feeling, wafting in the air is the smell of Bibingka (rice cakes) and Puto Bumbong sold in the lobby.
