Hi there! Allison here from Spicer + Bank and I am so happy to be here today on Kristy’s beautiful blog. I live in Singapore and since it will be my first year spending the holidays here and I am so excited to share my ideas for holiday entertaining and decorating in the tropics! Lots of us live in warmer weather climates and I think beautiful design often draws inspiration from natural surroundings. The winter holiday season can be lovely and festive even if there are palm trees instead of pines outside your window!

Here are my 3 favorite ideas for holiday designs which are fresh, festive and just a bit tropical!

{1} Bringing in a pop of lime green! Greens, white and a bit of silver is so festive but also perfect for the warm temps outside.

{2} Pile on the candles – they bring such warmth and a wonderful ambiance and are great indoors or out. I especially love the effect of masses of smaller candles!

{3} Go local with your centerpiece! Try using foliage native to your home, I adore all the oversized tropical leaves we can get here in Singapore and a lush bunch of them would be the perfect substitute for holly or traditional flowers.

Lastly here is my dream list for fresh holiday accessories!

{1} Votives

{2} Wine glass

{3} Silver tablecloth

{4} Feather wreath

{5} Placemat + napkin

{6} Green vases

{7} Glass canisters

{8} Champagne holder

Wishing you a wonderful season in cold weather or warm!

Thanks for so much having me!

  1. What a great color scheme that mimics the tropics but also what it looks like in a wintery climate – pine trees and snow…ideal all over the world. :) I especially love those green vases – off to check them out.

  2. She nailed it! Love the fresh feel!

  3. Oh I would love to live somewhere hot – these pics from Allison are just fab:) Here in Denmark it is cold and wintry already – we just need the snow now.
    Happy weekend
    Axx
